Tequila 7 Leguas Anejo

Tequila 7 Leguas Anejo - 24 months of loving care are present in this Añejo, subtle scents of slowly cooked agave mingle with delicate oak after aging for two years.

One of the oldest distilleries in Mexico, Casa Siete Leguas has more than fifty years of experience in the making of tequila by means of a traditional process delivering full-bodied, high-quality spirits of refined flavor. Tequila Siete Leguas is steeped in heritage and tradition, and consists of a Blanco, a Reposado, an Añejo and a D'Antaño, all made of 100% Tequilana Weber Agave. The D'Antaño is aged up to five years. This tequila carries the name of Pancho Villa's famous horse.

History: The Tequila Siete Leguas distillery was responsible for producing the "original" Patron Tequila brand, and brand rights were sold to St. Maarten Spirits, owners John Paul DeJoria (Paul Mitchell Hair Products) and Martin Crowley in 1989. As the brand grew, Tequila Siete Leguas was no longer able to keep up with production, and Patron built a new distillery and moved all production in 2002.

Aroma begins sweet, almost candy-apple, and moves into scents of spicy oak, agave, and light vanilla. Mouthfeel is light, which opens into a burst of dark spicy roasted agave on the tongue, with notes of burnt caramel and bittersweet orange rind. Very spicy and very smoky. Finish is long and medium hot, woody and tingly, with a nice warm after-finish that goes down deep and just keeps giving back. There is a uniquely sharp, smoky barreliness to this anejo that would seem to pair itself well with a good cigar. Delicious.

This anejo was a little lighter color than most others. It had some good agave and wood aromas and flavors. A sweeter entry and then a flavor blast and good hot finish. That is what I like in my tequilas.

i didn't know about the whole patron thing above. That is interesting.

I bought this at the recommendation of the good folks on this site and they picked a winner.

Aroma: Sweet and spicy. Nice agave and spice nose.
Initial Taste: Sweet on the tip of the tongue with a bit of sizzle as it moves on your palate.
Body: The wood and spice notes make this tequila really complex and enjoyable. There's also hints of vanilla and roasted nuts. Lots of flavors mixing...and doing it very well.
Finish: The spices really linger nicely for a long finish that reminds you of how good this tequila really is.

I'd recommend it to anyone. The price is fair in the $45-50 range and the bottle is nice, but the screw top takes away from the presentation.

Bought 3/2/10, paid $55. Had 2 oz from a tall shot glass and then another 2 :). First off let me say the bottle is a bit of a let down when compared to other quality anejo's. Color is a light straw, not near as dark as I would have expected for 24 months in the barrel. The nose is sweet, a bit of caramel, floral nothing overpowering. When sipped, holds nicely on the tongue and the true nature of this tequila comes to life, very complex, way more flavor here than you can catch in a couple of oz's. Leaves a nice burnt almond taste in the mouth after awhile, very smooooooth. Has a nice body and full bodied finish, will leave you asking for more! What a great surprise, the time in the barrel was not lost on the agave, many time the agave will take on the character of the barrel and the agave is lost over time. In fact this is the "Forrest Gump" of anejo's... you'll pick up something new every time you taste it. Don't be fouled by a so so bottle, it does seal completely btw, like all good things, it is whats inside that counts. enjoy...

I am drinking this out of a snifter on a warm and mellow evening, in Hollywood, California.
When I first opened this bottle of Añejo, I noticed the cap did not seem to be on in an air tight manner. The bottle and cheap plastic cap do not impress me. Rather, it hurts the over all presentation, and that is why I have scored it a 79/100
The nose on this tequila is very sweet with a good measure of alcohol burn. I will go as far as saying it is a bit too sweet.
The initial taste is honestly strange. It comes off both super sweet and a bit stringent. I held it in my mouth for a bit to soften the flavor and to try to decipher its body. The agave gets lost in the sweet air that this light tequila holds. It does have a strong binding to the glass, but flows over the taste buds in an overtly sweet hue of alcohol burn. A bit of vanilla, earth and pepper are to be found on the main flavor stage.
The Bottle, and its presentation is weak. The plastic top barely screws on and I feel there is an inadequate seal. I do not think this will keep well on a shelf after opening. The bottle design is not the worst, but in addition to the plastic cap, its over all presentation falls way short of acceptable.
This Tequila's finish is not very memorable and does not elicit drinking-excitement from me.
Over all, this Anejo is average and falls under the "extra" sweet category.
I would not serve this to a friend who was interested in developing an interest in fine Añejo tequilas.
