Herencia Historico Anejo NOM 1124 Tasted 12/27/06. The tequila is a golden brown color and has an intense vanilla and caramel aromas. Once you get past the intensity of the nose, you can smell moderate notes of fruit. On the tip of the tongue the tequila is mellow and soft but yet has a moderate agave taste. While the tequila has a low-to-no bitterness, it is actually fairly sweet and syrupy. The flavor has moderate agave, vanilla, and smokey attributes which are followed by mild spice and earth. Lastly, there are mild flavors of fruit, floral and caramel accents. The tequilas finish is a short-to-moderate duration of flavor followed by a hot and tingling alcohol feeling. Overall, I rated this tequila at the A level and would definitely recommend it.
