Alma de Agave Tequila Añejo

Alma De Agave Añejo is the perfect delight for the vintage tequila lover. It is matured in oak barrels for eighteen months, producing a bold honey taste, with a natural wood scented aroma. It is extra smooth and is best enjoyed neat at room temperature or used to produce luxurious Tequila cocktails.

Alma de Agave Tequila is produced with the finest Blue Weber Agave, cultivated from the shores of Lake Chapala, a region of Mexico known for the quality of its maguey plants, rich in minerals with a unique and distinct character.

By following our old family recipe of slow distillation and filtration, the results are beyond the smoothest tasting tequila. We have also taken it a step further of chilling our tequila to remove any oils and grease derived from distillation, allowing us to protect and hold its taste, color and flavor at any weather or environment.

Alma de Agave is bottled in hand-molded and blown glass by true artisans who hand-craft each individual bottle. It is topped with 100% Caoba wood and natural Corteza tree cork treated with parafina to protect the tequila's color and aromas.

Alma has been a favorite value brand of mine with their blanco and reposado. For $30 and under, it's one of the best lines you can fine. I was very much looking forward to trying the anejo and, well...here it is...

Aroma: A very woody agave nose with hints of fruit and caramel.
Initial Taste: Cooked agave, vanilla and spice.
Body: A thick body with heavy notes of oak. Hints of fruit, baking spices and pepper are present too.
Finish: The oak notes turn into a nice dark chocolate finish with cinnamon spice. The linger doesn't last too long, but is long enough to make you happy.

Alma anejo is a very nice tequila for under $30, but I think that I prefer the blanco and reposado better. It's really a fantastic line of tequilas and can compare with others in a much higher price category. The bottles look great and the juice inside is high quality. Get any of them and you won't be disappointed.

Purchased at Ramirez Liquor for 29$.. A great value for a very decent anejo...A good tequila, not great IMHO, but a good value.

Aroma: A nice woody, caramel aroma.
Initial Taste: A semi oily mouth feel. There is a slight bitterness upon entry. Initial taste of wood/agave.
Body: A good anejo body. Full of spice, cinnamon, cooked agave and wood.
Finish: A lightly heated finish of medium duration with a cinnamon agave lingering.

Purchased Feb/2010, paid $30 online. Color is a rich amber, leaves long legs and some tears. Light subtle nose, mostly agave/floral. Moderate to thin mouth feel, settles and holds nicely. Very smooth on the way down, not much heat, but just a slight flash when complete. Leaves a sight oak/agave taste in the mouth and slight numbing on the tongue if you repeat the process unabated. The bottle is tall and square, on a side note, the cork has started to come apart some chaffing into the bottle. I did not deduct for this. For the $, this is a hard anejo to beat. Lacks some personality, but I prefer this (Alma) to Corzo if you are looking for smooth and easily drinkable, its as smooth, tastes better, and much cheaper. A win, win.
