Frida Kahlo Tequila Anejo

Frida Kahlo Tequila Añejo is aged after fermentation in American Oak casks for at least three years before bottling. The result is exquisitely smooth, super-premium tequila that, like a fine cognac, is meant to be sipped and savored.

Frida Kahlo Tequila is made in Jesus Maria, in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico.

My last review of the Frida Kahlo line. Up to this point, I've been impressed, but with the precipitous rise in price as the age goes up, it's hard to think that the añejo will live up to a $70 price tag. However, with the change in NOM and a clearance at Hi Time Wines, it made me jump on this bottle.

Price: $50-70/bottle
Aroma: Earthy agave, honey, fruit and light smoke.
Initial Taste: The agave presence is still there and it's got a nice balance of earth and vegetal notes with the vanilla & honey flavors from the aging.
Body: Medium mouth feel. The earthy agave combines with barrel to give a smoky flavor that compliments the sweetness. An interesting combo.
Finish: The smoke and pepper are there on the finish and it has a nice, long linger. The sweetness is just there for balance at this point. There's just a hint on cinnamon and dark chocolate as well. A very complex and interesting (and good tasting) finish.

All in all, this is pretty good añejo with some nice lowland character and some unique notes from the aging. $70 is steep, but this tequila can play well in the $50 range. Anything lower and it's a very nice buy. The entire line is good. There's not much to dislike about this line from a flavor perspective. A sale on it means to jump and get the whole line.

Pricey, but tasty...

Tasted in a snifter glass coating the glass with nice thick legs. Frida Kahlo Anejo Color: brown sheen Aroma: caramel, wood and agave Taste: black pepper, caramel, agave and very little wood with slight oil mouthfeel and a smooth spicy finish The Frida anejo is a very nice spicy highland anejo. This is a great sipper that I would enjoy again.

Tasted out of a snifter at home. I really enjoyed the Frida Khalo blanco, so I decided to try their anejo. Same thing. I enjoyed it very much. In my opinion, a little overpriced-Im sure it has to do with the Frida marketing, but still a good anejo.

Aroma: Nice and caramely!
Initial Taste: An oily mouth feel with a sweet entry and no bitterness. Initial taste of caramel.
Body: A full body of earth, agave, clove, and caramel.
Finish: A semi heated finish of long duration. With a caramel lingering.

I was introduced to this tequila while at El Carmen in Los Angeles. One of their representatives was at the tequilaria promoting their products; she saw that I was drinking Gran Centenario Extra and offered a side-by-side comparison. After finishing the ~6oz serving that she poured, I think I have a good feel for this tequila.

Frida Kahlo is a medium-bodied anejo with moderate floral and oak notes. On the back end, there is a moderate to full agave flavor and a finish of spice with the slight numbing of alcohol.

El Carmen was charging $18 a shot, but I didn't pay for mine. Seems, perhaps, a little high. I would put it in the same class as Chinaco or Casa Noble. The artwork on the bottle is nice; the bottle itself is pretty standard.
