Was unfortunately very let down by this one. Love the blanco, like the repo. This just tasted muted from start to finish. Unpleasant amount of alcohol on the nose, tasted burnt all through the flavor. Would not buy this again.

Aroma : Oak, almonds and nutmeg. A small amount of dried fruit and citrus. Taste : Flavors like agave, citrus, and the vegetal "green" notes from Olmeca Altos are present. Plenty of oak, but a little bit of caramel as well. More almond and some baking spice. Feel is light/medium bodied with some oils, but not as much as I would prefer. Finish : Short/medium length with predominating oak and caramel. Some agave and spice. I think this is somewhat similar to the Reposado in the sense that I would like some of the notes to be more distinguishable from one another, but this still a great bargain tequila.

Pretty astringent for an añejo. Smells good, tastes a bit harsh. Honey notes. A bit smoky compared to Pueblo Viejo anejo, but harsher, too. PB is the better choice at this price point.

Agave, vanilla, and oak dominate the nose and palate. it's very smooth and pleasant. There is just a little heat on the finish that went away too soon.

Not bad for an inexpensive añejo. $30 in Tucson. Cooked agave, cinnamon, baking spice and oak on the nose. More cooked agave, carmel, black pepper, and orange peel in the mouth. Sweet buttery, vanilla, vegetal finish but not very long.

Wonderful balanced aroma in this anejo. Hazelnut, oak, with a small vanilla creeping in. Flavor is a spicy caramel. Finishes a bit weak but it’s a bargain.

Lacking complexity, buttery aroma and flavor followed by bitter oak, cooked agave and butter again. mild finish with little burn. good for the price but better used in a cocktail than sipped.

NOM 1111, on sale $31/bottle 750. Aromas include almond, dry fruits, wood oak, vanilla, vegetal, apricot, roasted nuts and chocolate. Flavor hints on cooked and raw agave with chocolate, almonds, caramel, earthy vegetal notes, and bourbon barrels. Finish is all roasted agave, caramel, wood and chocolate. Overall is a mouthfeel with caramel, chocolate, vanilla and vegetal notes but not much agave.

Sweet agave and caramel on the nose. I love the buttery feel, not as sweet as I anticipated. No burn, a touch on the bitter side from the aging. I'm not disappointed one bit considering the price...extra points there!

the best value out there. Blanco is their shining star with repasado second and this bringing up the back end. only complaint is after taste is a bit unrefined. wouldn't be my go to for anejo neat but could see a worthy base for good cocktails

One of my go-to's for margaritas or when I want a good sipper that is light in the wallet. Cinnamon, caramel, agave and pleasant finish. Great bargain tequila, made in the traditional method - highly recommended.

I had high hopes for this tequila but it's let me down. The price has jus increased in the uk from £30 to £39 which makes it worse value. The aromas are ok but the taste is just, well, blah. One glass is enough for me.

If I were to ever make an espresso martini with a tequila, this one is a top candidate. Not my first choice for a sipping Añejo but definitely has some interesting qualities.
