Don Cosme Tequila Añejo

Don Cosme Tequila Añejo is 100% Blue Agave from Amatitán, Jalisco. Don Cosme Agaves are slow cooked in brick ovens for 48 hours, the juices are then extracted using a traditional tahona. Don Cosme Añejo is aged for 18 months in white oak barrels.

Since 1907, Tequila Don Cosme's exquisite 100% Agave Tequila recipe has been passed down from generation to generation. Don Cosme maintains a traditional process delivering quality and prestige, and is a 100% Mexican company that focuses on satisfying the most demanding of palates.

I'm always on the look out for brands of 100% agave juice for under $20. Don Cosme fit the bill. I'd never heard of it before, but I figured that the bottle looked cool enough and the price was right...so why not?

Aroma: Full aroma of oak, vanilla and ripe berries.
Initial Taste: Sweet agave and berries with a hint of vanilla.
Body: Medium body, semi-oily. The oak in the aging really comes into play in the body with a big flavor and a hint of bitterness. The sweet berry & vanilla flavors are still there as well.
Finish: A fairly smooth finish with a hint of alcohol on the end. Medium length finish. Nothing too much to speak of.

This is a decent tequila. It will probably be better than most people have had. It's a cut above Sauza and 1800 and larger brands like that, but it's not a hidden gem per se. For $20, you can't go wrong with this one. It would work fine as a budget sipper or mixer. Check it out...you won't be disappointed for the price.
