This has the most balance of the square bottle issues. Agave and oak with barrel spice of caramel, cinnamon and clove as well as some pepper and alcohol.

Striking nose. Baking spices, plus cardamom, and big vanilla. Bourbon aromas encroach dangerously close to masking the agave. A flinty mineral undercurrent as well. Round full flavor. Loaded with spices, hazelnuts, cherries and almonds. Topped off with a nice hit of pepper. Not a terribly long finish, and somewhat dominated by the bourbon barrel aging.

Excellent aromatics of cooked caramel and vanilla with oak and toffee Flavours of toffee, caramel come through to start with a light oaky finish

Medium amber color in the glass. Aroma of caramel, oak and a hint of agave. Flavor of oak and caramel. Not overly complex. Light to Medium finish. Price seems high compared to other comparable añejos.

very strong bourbon flavour as it has been ages in bourbon barrels. lots of burn, and even some whiskey mash flavour. not what I'm looking for when I want to sip a tequila

reallly enjoyed this, probably because I'm a whiskey drinker and it's very close to bourbon for me.

The nose has a nice vanilla and sweet cream butter mix with a hint of cherry blossom in the background. Although not a particularly sweet tequila, Centinela brings butterscotch to a new level on the palate throughout. Strong honey flavor that is followed by butterscotch the rest of the way through.

Strong liquor and oaky notes, after taste is pleasant but too strong smoke and oak notes for my palate, great for someone looking for something oaky

No burn. Good finish. Toffee flavour galore. Delicious and tasty. Great aroma. Really good and enjoyable. Butter flavour after resting a bit. And more fruity. A great Anejo. But I like blancos better. Re-sampled 3 months later. Anejos lack tequila character. The more I drink... less of a fan.

Honey, caramel, and toffee flavors, but not too sweet. Clean finish. Paid 501 pesos, around $27. Great price for the quality of tequila, I would have paid more! I will buy more, and looking forward to trying the other versions of this brand.

tried this in a restaurant in GDL. citrus on the nose followed by nice vanilla has a very fruity nose and that isn't bad at all. taste is well balanced. has a nice chocolate taste with dried fruit and then the burn comes on the finish and lingers. not bad. I would buy this for an everyday sipper.

Owned entire line for several years and a few package changes. The anejo yellow brown package is a bit strange, but the juice is fantastic; the color is light tan, a bit lighter than most anejos; on the nose are hints of agave and caramel; across the front of the tongue are notes of more caramel and butterscotch with slight pepper; on the backend, even more pleasant notes of caramel and toffee; this bottle and the entire Centinela line are good deals. Edited, just tasted blind, slight lowered score.

On my trip to Mexico, I was looking for tequila unavailable in the US, hard to find in the US, or much cheaper in Mexico. Someone working at La Europea in Polanco Mexico City recommended me this bottle and this stuff is really good. This is a bourbon like tequila with flavors of caramel, vanilla, stone fruit, dried fruit, and some barrel spice. This might be as good as or better than Don Julio 1942 at a much cheaper price.

Great anejo, although hard to find in the USA. I enjoyed this while in Mexico. I'm newer to Tequilas but this was a natural choice coming from experience in fine Bourbons. I bought four bottles to take hold. FYI they did not have this bottle at the Cancun CUN airport duty free. Would be interested to hear where exactly others found it. Mine was at a hotel in Mayakoba south of Cancun.

Found this excellent tequila in a local grocery store here in Playa del Carmen. Such an awesome tasting Anejo! It smells of caramel and toffee - taste is similar with an extra hint of honey. It's not too sweet - and very little burn - but very delicious. Hard to put down. It was an amazing value at around $35.

My rating would be higher if the nose would be better. I could make out an unpleasent smell of glue.....However, besides the nose this tequila is a good bang for the buck. Nice subtle vanilla, caramel taste. Nicely balanced.
