Tequila Gran Centenario Anejo

Gran Centenario Aneejo is made from 100% Blue Agave, aged for 18 months in toasted American oak barrels. It is light-bodied with mild Agave with toasted wood overtones.

The label on this bottle reminds us of a tequila legend: More than 150 years ago, Lazaro Gallardo calls for an angel, in order to hold a watchful eye on his still growing agaves.

Cant say this is a memorable line for me. Then again, Im not a fan of 1800 either and its from the same distillery.

Aroma: Cooked agave, probably my favorite part of this tequila.
Initial taste: A sweet entry with a slight bitterness. First taste is cinnamon.
Body: Agave, earth, and cinnamon.
Finish: A slightly heted finish with a short lingering of agave.

A great value tequila that is usually pretty easily found as well.

Aroma: Cooked agave and oak with a little bit of earth and spice.
Initial Taste: Sweet initial taste with a bit of cinnamon spice.
Body: Medium body where the flavors start compound for a really nice overall taste.
Finish: A nice medium length linger with a bit of pleasant alcohol burn and spice that stays on the tongue.

Considering this bottle can be found online many places in the $25-30 range, it's really a must have. It can hold its own against pricey tequilas, but is cheap enough to be an every day enjoyment. The bottle is unremarkable, but who cares if the juice within is good?

For my money, this is the best tequila value on the market today. An excellent, smooth, full-of-agave-flavor bottle, and it runs under $35 at most liquor stores! Hints of vanilla, oak (of course), and cinnamon make this a very enjoyable pour. One of my favorites! I keep coming back to it again and again.

Tobacco like nose.
Smooth easy finish.
Can drink much.
Beautiful bottle.
GREAT price: 29.99 at BevMo--why? I don't know. It was 58 last time I bought it there. at 29.99 it is a rating of 99!

I bought this in Indiana for $40 if memory serves me well. It was on clearance there and for that price I think it was a good buy. Not a great anejo, but very good. I wouldn't buy it again, but wouldn't complain about it either.

Very sweet aroma, floral, light spice, and a smokey oak which was very present in the body as well. I wish there was a bit more agave flavor, but the nice sweet taste was fairly light and crisp for what a medium, almost thick (not quite, but thicker than I thought it would be), anejo. There was a small hint of vanilla too that was nice, but for me the primary flavors overall were oak and kind of a sweet floral flavor (I don't usually describe a FLAVOR as floral, but it kind of tasted like the floral scent in it if that makes sense).

Anyway... good anejo, not great, but respectable for sure.
