Los Abuelos Tequila Anejo
Anejos
Submitted by Tequila.net     March 11, 2007    
This is a very unique anejo. Aged well, but still retains many of the qualities of the very good blanco version from this Fortaleza line.

Aroma: A TON of agave nose along with a soft vanilla scent, floral notes and some fruit.
Initial Taste: Very smooth agave and a buttery hint as well.
Body: The complexities come out nicely. Wood, pepper and caramel notes compliment the strong agave taste. However, the aging keeps it mild and smooth with only a little bit of heat from the alcohol.
Finish: A nice, LONG finish that lingers on and reminds you how good it is. The tongue tingles from the pepper and slight alcohol heat.

This is a really nice tequila. Is it my favorite in the price range...nope. Despite being someone who more often prefers rested tequilas, I actually think that the blanco is the strongest in this line. The bottle is nice, the cork is one of the finest you'll see. But for $60-70, I like the other options out there better. Still, if you have the means you should definitely go out and try this juice.
