On the nose, Light oak, agave, and fruit. A little bit of berries. Canteloupe, or maybe honeydew, some type of melon for sure. Beautiful aroma, one of my favorite notes and I rarely get it. On the palate, Intense flavor. Spices, minerals, agave. Definitely get the oak, definitely get the earthiness. It’s got a nice balanced sweetness, and a bit of vanilla. I swear I’m tasting almond and maybe butter, but sweet. A tiny bit of mint in the finish for me. Many people consider this the weak spot of the Terralta line but I would have to completely disagree. This is fantastic, full of flavor. I almost feel like the reposado is more subdued in comparison. The first sip was an exposition of flavor and at $51 at my local spot, I’ll keep this in stock forever.

Oak, honeydew, agave, vanilla, pepper, cinnamon, a touch of smoke. Medium finish with a rich coat. Excellent!

Slight oak, dry wood and spicy aroma. Ripe plum, a bit of milk candy, and some melon. Wood taste slighty overcomes the agave taste in this one, although wood taste is really balanced and not overwhelming due to the exhausted bourbon casks used to age the tequila. In the aftertaste, rich agave taste richly appears in an underlying layer: first I get cooked agave and then raw agave comes to scene. Not the average woody, vanilla and caramel taste on this one, and that is just great!

Aroma : Cooked agave and apricot predominate here. There is also some brine and light oak. Light earth as well. Taste : Light agave here with some oak. A small degree of brine here as well. Peppery with some almond and caramel. Full bodied. Finish : Long with stronger notes of an oak and caramel barrel influence.

Nose: Full on agave. Ripe peach, apricot and berries. Undercurrent of barrel spice - very light oak! Flavor: Coats your mouth with silky vanilla, almond and jerk-like spices. A nice pepper sensation. A hint of brine and cured cheese. A slight tongue numbing, satisfying finish.

Everything is a bit muted here. Nose is good with caramel, agave, and some anise. To be fair, the bottle is brand new so an eventual update will happen. I do appreciate the muted barrel influence, but this has a time and place. Lighter than many repos, if you’re in the mood for barrel, then don’t seek this. It lost so much of it’s oily intensity and viscosity compared to the blanco. Right into the barrel wall. This is very good, but I think you have to be in the mood for a light anejo. However, he found a way to not lose the agave, tough to do with an anejo.

Honey, wet slate, varnished oak, ripe banana, citrus nose. Very well balanced, all of the flavors blend together into one very nice, hard to describe taste. Restrained and light, the barrel notes are strictly complementary to the agave. Could be fooled into thinking this is a rich reposado, though the buttery notes give it much more depth than a typical repo.

On the nose you’re greeted with oak but the edge has been rounded off with vanilla, there is some cooked agave and stone fruit that’s balanced as well. On entry you get the sweetness of the stone fruit followed by the warming of the vanilla, oak and some cinnamon.on the finish you’re left with the oak and some lingering vanilla, great balanced añejo between agave and barrel.

The light straw color is lighter than many reposados which we know is Felipe’s goal to minimize barrel influence and retain an agave presence which I like in aged tequilas.

This is Terralta! Fantastic. crisp, still has agave touch with the light aging. I tend to prefer this over heavy oak. But time and place, and this one is perfect for me right now.

Aroma, light but definite agave, burnt brown sugar, and vanilla tones. Flavor, kind of faint at first followed by burnt brown sugar, agave, wood, and anise. Finish a touch hot for its aging but overall a good sipper and sharer (meaning it's one I won't be hoarding)

Agave, fruit, earthy, and light oak on the nose. Very soft on the palate. Brine, agave, light carmel, and fruit notes on the palate. Very uneventful for an Anejo. Not bad but a little light on flavor. Would not think it was an anejo if I did not pour it myself.

Decent Anejo, but not as much flavor as I'd hoped. Many better options out there, including several from NOM 1579.

Terralta's Anjeo is light, crisp, and affordable. Give this time to open up. Aroma: Immediately hit with a light bourbon barrel char. Cooked agave, cinnamon and white pepper follow suit. Notes of apricot/peach, red berries, a touch of vanilla and orange citrus. Taste: Dry mouthfeel, yet silky. There is a cinnamon warth that builds through the finish. Cooked agave, a touch of almond and a slight briney bite. Flavors slowly develop into salted caramel along with vanilla and black pepper. Finish: Long. Salty carmel, cracked pepper and cinnamon warmth play well together.

Very good! The nose begins with agave and oak The mouthfeel is clean water which is refreshing. There is light pepper and agave which finished with some more oak, agave and just a bit of pepper and sweetness. A nicely done anejo.

On the nose i get like the sweetness from the agave but also a fruitiness like cherry’s. On the palate, i still get a sweetness, white pepper, the American oak towards the end.

Terralta Añejo Tequila – “Earthly Pleasure”

If you think the term terroir only applies to wine, the Terralta line will make you think again. Aromas of soil (earth, mushrooms) and minerals remain even in the añejo, mixing pleasantly with barrel flavors such as vanilla, maple, and caramel.
