Campeón Tequila Añejo

Campeón Tequila Añejo is 100% pure Blue Agave, and is aged in small oak barrels for a minimum of one year. The aging process is meticulously followed by our Master Distiller to achieve perfection in each type of Campeón Tequila.

Campeón Tequila insists on using exclusively "Blue Agave de superior" from the uppermost regions in The Highlands of Jalisco. When you look closely at our Tequilas, our aged products are lighter color than what you may be used to in other Añejo and Reposado tequila. We don’t believe in using overly charred barrels which impart their own flavor, easily masking a high quality, or flawed product. You’ll see our light straw color which comes not from the barrel but from caramelizing the Blue Agave. Our barrel aging softens and adds depth and layers, but you’ll never see our product’s exceptional flavor masked by woody barrel overtones. You will taste the thick, aged agave juice, aged to perfection.

I bought this on my last trip to Arizona (a year ago) and I just hadn't got around to it. That said the wife is down there again hopefully picking me up something tasty and I looked at this thinking I should give it a try. Now, I'm kicking myself. Its good, like really good for the price. The color is quite light for an Anejo, but the aroma and nose has lots of complexity. Lemon, Grass, a touch of Vanilla and a hint of Strawberry (love strawberries). The intial taste has some butter, caramel and licorice which leads into a buttery smooth body. The finish is nice with a slight tartness at the tail. This is a super great effort in a lighter Anejo style but with all the complexity you want in something that is aged longer.
