One of the go to budget brands of tequileros all over the US, El Ultimo Agave. It's often passed over because of it's low price and the location on the shelves intermingled with the mixtos. I know that a lot of people use it as their home "well" pour. The silver made a good mixer, but was a bit harsh on the finish to use as a sipper. Let's see what some barrel aging does for it.

Price: $18-25/bottle

Aroma: Earthy agave. Not too much in the ways of sweet aromas, but more of a leather scent. Interesting.

Initial Taste: Cooked agave, a hint of caramel and some smoke.

Body: Medium bodied and a fairly dark color. The agave and oak are there, but neither is very powerful. It's easy to drink, but there's just not a ton of flavor.

Finish: The oak and pepper have a long presence after the drink is gone.

This is an interesting añejo. Generally cheap ones seem to be filled with added sweeteners, but this is quite the opposite. There's oak and spice and pepper, but nothing overpowering. If you want something that has some oak and agave and not many other flavors, this is a good option, especially at the price. Not my favorite, but it is certainly a good value for what it brings to the table.

Good value, but not enough flavor

Sometimes a good tequila does not have a story associated with it. Sometimes, you just walk into the store, see the bottle on the shelf, recognize it to be one you have never tried - so - you buy it. The price is a bargain as long as the tequila is drinkable. Then you try it and you are blown away with the level of flavor you are experiencing for the price you paid. Anyone who loves añejo tequila and is working on a tight budget should buy a bottle of El Ultimo Agave. The flavor level of this product is easily in the $60 a bottle plus range - rather than the $25.00 I paid.
This tequila is the color of honey; a dark rich golden color. It is presented in a hand-blown dimpled glass bottle with a glass relief of a jimador cutting up an agave plant. The top is wooden with a real cork stopper. Everything about the tequila is authentic. The nose is sticky sweet - like unfermented agave. There is plenty of caramel and vanilla on the topside with fruit flavors lying just below the surface. On first taste, the fruit influence becomes more apparent but the caramelized sugar still dominates. Alcohol is only moderately apparent at first and quickly fades to almost nothing.
In a tasting glass there are thick legs with a medium viscosity in the main body of the liquid. In the mouth, this tequila coats all the elements at first, but then, backs off slightly to leave a bright, crisp open feel - like breathing fresh air. So - this is a fantastic value for the price. No one would expect a tequila at this price point to have a flavor this luxurious. It is a wonderful tequila to sip over the course of an evening. Perhaps, it is a dessert tequila since it is so sweet. It mixes well with any dessert having chocolate in the recipe. There are so many tequilas out there that I rarely buy a second bottle of the same brand or expression. El Ultimo Agave is an exception to my rule. For a lowland tequila, this is one every tequila lover should have on his bar.
Considering the production process for this tequila, it's a miracle how the flavor comes out. The bourbon barrels give it a very slight smokiness in addition to flavors best described as complex and lingering on the palate long after the last sip is swallowed.

Tasted out of a snifter. For $16.99, the price and value of this tequila can't be beat. How do they do it? This anejo is definitely something everyone can enjoy. Aficionados and 'beginners' alike. Their whole line is just a great value.

Aroma: A sweet nose of caramel, and berry.
Initial Taste: A semi oily mouth feel. A sweet entry with no bitterness. Initial taste was caramel/fruit.
Body: A nice agave body with great compliments of caramel, berry, and slight smoke. Not too complex, but so what!
Finish: A sweet finish with medium heat of short duration with a nice sweet berry lingering for me.
