Cazadores Tequila Anejo

Cazadores Anejo Tequila - The authentic, smooth, 100% Blue Agave flavor comes from at least one year of aging in new, small, American white oak barrels. Best enjoyed as a sipping tequila.

Tequila Cazadores, Spanish for "hunters", symbolizes Señor Jose Maria's constant pursuit to create the world's finest premium Tequila.

This may not be a perfect anejo, but I think it's highly enjoyable; particularly at the price point. In Ontario, this tequila can be had for between $40 and $43. By comparison, other anejos available at the LCBO: Don Julio 1942 - $139, Gran Patron Burdeos - $699, Avion Anejo - $95, Patron Anejo - $100, Sierra Milenario Extra Anejo - $68.

Now, while this anejo is not as enjoyable as the 1942, it is certainly much nicer than the Patron.
It is not terribly complex, but there are enough hints of wood, vanilla and spice to make it enjoyable.
Considering the price point and the other available options, I would say that the Cazadores is a no brainer to buy if looking for an anejo in Ontario.

Cazadores is a strange brand. I'm luke warm on some of them and head over heels in love with the Extra Anejo. This one is in between in terms of age...so I should like it, right?

Aroma: Not much agave, but plenty of vanilla and oak.
Initial Taste: Mildly sweet. Kind of bland. Vanilla and oak are the predominant flavors.
Body: Medium body. Nothing special. The wood flavor is more forward than any here. It's a fairly bland anejo. Maybe a hint of fruity sweetness.
Finish: No character at all. It almost just disappears. The oak flavor lingers a bit and it's easy to drink, but there's no umph at the end of this one to speak of.

This bottle runs in the $35-40 range most place. For that price, I could name 50 tequilas off the top of my head that I would rather drink for $40 or less. It's not bad...it's just not good either. And for the price, I hope for something better.

Bought it duty free in Mexico and was already late. Bottom line, it was a hit and run...

In any case, I am not a pro but what I do look for is an "oh nice" when you smell it, first sip needs to be "oh nice" as well and finally sit down and try to figure what you are tasting. Yes, sweet, buttery, nutty and tons of other tasts come to mind.

With this one I had an "oh nice" feeling (chocolaty comes to mind), first sip was surprisingly mild (I did check the proof to make sure this was Tequila, as I said, hit and run at the aurport).

The aftertaste was nice. Makes you wonder what the next sip brings and if it would enhance it or maybe switch over to something else.

And I sampled every single bar/Tequila in Mexico DF (it did feel like that next morning) from expensive to medium to 'insider tips'. This one is good.

bought 2/15/10, Paid $40, it looks good, bottle is nice but once in the glass its all down hill from there. Not much of a nose, i smell to figure out what is ahead. If I knew I would not have drank it. This is the worst $ I have spent on tequila, dare I say worse than Patro$#@! agh. Maybe I,m a bit of a snob, with over 20 quality anejos at my disposal my taste buds went on strike here. Im not gona get it to it here. Its not that cheap and has no saving grace. Avoid this agave.

Beautiful bottle presentation. Nice aroma with smoke and vanilla. It moves from a sweet, smooth start to a strong, peppery burn. Not unpleasant while sipping on a cold winter day.
