JLP The President's Tequila Añejo

JLP The President's Tequila Anejo is produced from the finest 100% Blue Weber Agave and grown uniquely in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. Each Bottle is hand made and has been aged in American oak barrels for 12 months.

JLP The President's Tequila was created to honor a history rooted in the original development of Tequila. In November of 1758, Jesus Lopez Portillo Y Galindo, the President's ancestor and governor of the Villa of Tequila in the Jalisco region, granted a hacienda to Jose Antonio in the name of King Carlos III of Spain. It was there, in 1795, that Cuervo's daughter Maria married Vincente Albino Rojas - from whom JLP's ancestors also descends - and they founded the first distillery, La Rojena. They would become the first to receive concession from King Carlo IV of Spain to develop and produce Tequila.

Tasted 04/11/15 from a Riedel Tequila Glass.
Appearance: Dark amber
Aroma: Agave, oak, caramel, fruit, and a hint of alcohol.
Initial Taste: Bold agave, oak, caramel, baking spices, and sweet fruit (perhaps peach) flavors were present. The agave dominates but the other flavors compliment it very nicely.
Body: Medium body with tears on the glass and a buttery mouth feel that distributes the flavors evenly.
Finish: A very pleasant and smooth medium length finish peppery agave finish with caramel and a sweet nutty flavor lingering.
Price: RRP of $29.99
Presentation: Hand-made bottle but still only a basic design with a paper label. The synthetic cork stopper separated from the top when I first opened the bottle.

This is really on outstanding robust anejo for the price. The flavors from 12 months of aging in oak are not subtle, which is what you usually get with a value priced anejo. I haven’t tried the blanco or reposado from this line yet, but after drinking this anejo, they are now on my shopping list.

Everyone can find a really good tequila for $50+. It's finding the hidden gems out there for well under $30 that spirit drinkers love to do. In the $20-25 range, there's not a better deal than JLP Tequila out there.

Price: $20-30/bottle
Aroma: Nice aged nose full of agave, caramel and oak.
Initial Taste: Sweet vanilla and agave with a bit of spice.
Body: Nice thick body full of caramel, ripe fruit and wood.
Finish: Medium finish with a nice sweetness and agave pepper linger.

This has everything you'd want from an anejo, but at less than half the price of a lot of them. It's definitely on the sweet side, but it does it well. If you can find it, do yourself a favor and buy this brand. It may just become your new value sipper...and something inexpensive that you can share with friends and amaze them with the price.
