Regional Tequila Anejo
Anejos
Submitted by Tequila.net     July 21, 2007    
This is mighty fine for $40, a price point where it competes with the best blancos/reposados, let alone anejos.

Nose: Spicy and fruity with some citrus and wood on the background.
Initial taste: A bit sweet with no bitterness. Agave, wood, and rendered butter up front.
Body: Beautiful, rich amber color. Well-built and rich in flavor as it sits in your mouth.
Finish: Spice, caramel, butter, and wood fade into a lasting aged agave finish.

The bottle is terrible; the label is a two-toned plastic sticker (gold and black), the shape is contrived, and it has a screw top. But if that all keeps the price down, then I'll just pour this into a nicer bottle and be proud to keep this out for my guests.

A new "budget" favorite!
