Don Fernando Tequila Anejo

Submitted by Tequila.net     July 01, 2007    
Wow. I tried Don Fernando Anejo at El Carmen in Los Angeles last weekend and was really impressed. As a preface, however, the bartender told me that the deep blue 3-litre bottle he poured from was over 7 years old and that he was not a fan of the new Don Fernando Anejo. That being said, here are my thoughts on the bottle that I tasted.

This is a really smooth tequila. The aroma is sweet with a hint of clover. The oak does not overpower the agave and is accompanied by notes of caramel and coffee. This medium-bodied tequila has a medium to long duration of flavor with a hint of bitterness that really activates the saliva glands at the sides of the mouth.

At $33/shot at El Carmen, it falls into the "high-priced" category, but well worth it in my opinion.

My next goal is to find a current bottle of Don Fernando Anejo to compare. Until I can confirm that it "ain't what it used to be", I would strongly recommend this tequila.
