Tequila El Jimador Añejo

Tequila El Jimador Añejo, the number one selling Tequila in Mexico.

A champion tequila aged for 12 months in new oak barrels with a thick body and an aroma of cooked agave, notes of wood and a delightful cinnamon and butter hine. An extraordinary sipping tequila.

40% alcohol volume (United States) - 38% alcohol volume (Mexico)

As I'm writing this review the overall rating for this tequila stands at 93, ranked above anejos from Don Julio, El Tesoro,
Chinaco, 7 Leguas, etc. It is clearly not better than these tequilas, so it must be the price talking. This tequila is fine without any real negative qualities, but also without much that stands out either. I would consider it almost the minimum I would keep in my liquor cabinet for sipping and I have to admit it would probably gather dust for that purpose in favor of some of the aforementioned brands and others. My first and only bottle of this tequila I sipped maybe 3-4 times and made margaritas out of the rest. It makes great margaritas by the way. If you are selecting anejos based on price, this one is a winner. I haven't tried any anejos as good in its price range.

El Jimador has been around forever and is from one of the big distilleries. The fact that the line wasn't 100% agave for a long time kept me from trying it. When they switched to all agave, I thought I should give it a shot.

Aroma: A very interesting nose. I get caramel, cinnamon and plenty of wood.
Initial Taste: Fruity agave (berries, not citrus) and caramel. A very nice entry.
Body: A medium body with nice oily texture. Fills the mouth well and allows to taste all of the flavors: agave, fruit, caramel, oak and lots of baking spice like notes. You can really tell that this was aged in used bourbon barrels.
Finish: A nice sweet and smoky finish. It doesn't last long, but it's a nice ending to a very good tequila.

Big maker, basic bottle...I was not expecting to be blown away, but this is darn good stuff. Factor in the price and the fact that it's easily found and you have a real winner. I'd definitely recommend going out and getting a bottle of this.

Very Good taste (maybe the best) for the price (here in México), deep oak flavour and dark color, smells good and taste better, certainly is very good and it's not the best, but for the price is totally worth to try it. Bottle is similar to a whisky one, that an elder personality.

Excelente sabor para el precio, su sabor es amaderado y su color obscuro, el cual denota que ha absorbido glicerinas de la madera de la barrica (roble americano), huele bien cuando destapas la botella y sabe aún mejor. Ciertamente es muy bueno y aunque no es el mejor añejo por el precio de venta vale la pena probarlo.

La botella es similar a una de whisky y su tono oscuro le da una personalidad como de un Tequila muy antiguo.

I asked a friend of mine to pick up a good bottle of tequila for me when he returned from his trip to Mexico City. Upon his return, he presented me with with this beautiful metal fronted wooden box. Inside the velvet lined box was a bottle of El Jimador Anejo, and it was obviously a limited edition. The box itself had a wonderful aroma, a hint of things to come. The tequila has a rich deep color and outstanding aroma. Taking a sip, it is very smooth with lots of tequila flavor coming through without the burn or bite. Really one of the best tequilas I have ever tasted. Highly recommended, do not pass up the chance to buy this El Jimador if you see the lovely box on the shelf!

Excellent anejo for its price point. Im a big fan of the anejos that come out of this distillery. I think this is a great anejo for new anejo drinkers.

Aroma: A nice rich nose full of cherry, floral, and slight cinnamon.
Initial Taste: A semi oily mouth feel. There's no bitterness upon entry and the first taste is cherry/wood.
Body: Agave, cinnamon, slight spices, and slight earth.
Finish: An unheated finish with a sweet cherry/woody lingering.
