NOM 1616 | Caramel, oak, leather, butterscotch, and that common earthy oaky orange funk that underlies all the Codigo for me—but more muted here.

NOM 1500 | I enjoyed this, really reminded me of a bourbon. It’s too expensive for what it is but I thought this was good.

NOM 1500 | Aroma: Butterscotch, vanilla, and caramel. Taste: Smooth, silky butterscotch taste. The taste of the cooked agave mixed with the butterscotch is present throughout. Finish: Smooth all the way through, a slight agave alcohol bite that reminds you you’re drinking tequila. Overall: My favorite añejo so far.

NOM 1500 | I find the George Strait Anejo (using select barrels) to show much better on the nose and finish. This Anejo is light, showing good cooked agave and barrel flavors.

NOM 1500 | Wow, this completely caught me off guard, this brand actually gets more agave forward as we progress down the aged expressions. This tequila is elite, I’d happily pour this for anyone and wait to see the smile erupt.

NOM 1500 | This was a fantastic anejo but the price brought it's score down. Dry, not overly sweet and packed with agave, vanilla, oak, caramel, and surprisingly a touch of citrus. Great product but I can find lots of great anejo for under $100.

NOM 1500 | Aroma and flavors of vanilla, brown sugar. agave and baking spices. This is an interesting and pricey añejo with a strong finish.

NOM 1500 | You can definitely smell the influence of the French oak Cabernet in the aroma. Initially there was very little of the aromas associated with an anejo, such as the caramels or vanilla. The flavor has some bitterness at the mid and back palate but after that the finish was very good. Using an aerator really opened up the tequila and the bitterness almost entirely went away.

NOM 1500 | Very complex aromas that continues to reveal more layers over time. Initially, strong fruit and floral aromas jump out (almost similar to Paradiso). After a few minutes, vanilla and earth/clay aromas show up. The flavor is a nice sweet/heat combination with dried fruit, caramel and vanilla in the mix. A moderate heat carries into the relatively short finish. 12/30/2016 - 4th Annual Xmas XA tasting.

NOM 1500 | Aroma: Very complex. At the start, I get a lot of sweet notes like vanilla and berries. But, after a little bit of rest I start to get heavy notes like oak and leather. Each time it's a different combination of aroma. Flavor: Prominent flavor of oak with hints of caramel and vanilla. Slightly bitter but very nice and balanced. Finish: Nice and strong in comparison to the Blanco. It hangs around for a while and is not overpowering.

NOM 1500 | Bottle: Total Wine and More Private Reserve Barrel Select, Barrel # 17-0049 Appearance: Dark amber Nose: Oak, alcohol, vanilla…smells more like a bourbon/whisky than a tequila Palate: Oak, alcohol, maple, brown sugar, vanilla, butterscotch…more complex than the nose, but still reminds me more of a whisky than an aged tequila Finish: Warm, long, and comforting…very much like a good whisky Overall: Very enjoyable as a spirit, but I miss the agave notes that I typically want/expect from a good anejo. Not bad by any stretch, but something that can be enjoyed on its own without expectations. It’s expensive for what it is at $120/bottle.

1500 Tastings June 26 2022 NOM 1500 CÓDIGO EXPRESSIONS ANEJO Lote L024ANE40 NOSE Brown sugar caramel oak TASTE Brown sugar caramel oak, vanilla a little dried fruit FINISH as like the other expressions, the finish is short and subtle but with a nice heat that fades off but lasts a bit longer with the anejo than with the other expressions. _________________________ OTHER We got these Códigos when they first introduced em. I wanna say 2016/17?!? Bottles have been open for awhile with about 1/4 left in each so may have affected the aroma and taste ??? I'm unsure of the production methods of these NOM 1500 codigo expressions. TMM lists the new NOM 1616 production methods. I have read that the anejo was aged 18 mos in French oak cab barrels? OVERALL, I can see how people would enjoy these Código 1500 tequilas. Easy sippers. Just a little pricey for what it is

NOM 1616 | A bit in the woodsy side, like sandalwood or myrrh and such. Some vanilla some caramel but barely. Pretty smooth overall. Is it worth the premium price?

NOM 1616 | At least the aroma isn’t terrible like the other Codigo expressions. Taste is boring and too much like whiskey. Finish is non existent. Pass. Sorry George.

Codigo Anjeo is not my cup of tea, but I think there will be many who just love this spirit. At its price point, i subtracted several points for affordability. Nose: Dont rush this one. Allow this to open up to fully appreciate the nose. Strong nose of pepper, vanilla, baking spices and candied fruit. Hints of chocolate and toasted almond. Taste: Buttery mouthfeel with some dry sweetness and a solid peppey warmth. Astringent cinnamon and cooked agave up front. Oak tannins are a bit too overwhelming. Finish: The cinnamon softens and lingers with the cooked agave for a long fiinish.

NOM 1616 | Smells of heavy toffee, oak and vanilla and light butter and general fruitiness. Tastes of vanilla, butterscotch and baking spice with a light oakiness and very faint smoke. Very nice but the agave takes a back seat and the price is hard to justify.
