Tequila La Cofradia Añejo

La Cofradia Tequila Añejo - Satisfying the most demanding palates is one of the missions of La Cofradia, a company with a long tradition in the industry. This special reserve Añejo Tequila is aged a minimum of one year.

In 1995, La Cofradia introduced this 100% Agave Tequila which bears the company name. La Cofradia Tequila bottles bear the signature of the distillery owner, Carlos Hernandez Hernandez, which are to be given on special occasions.

I have had a few bottles of this since it has been on clearance at a local store for quite awhile, priced at $19.99 for all three ages. I was excited to find this La Cofradia product so reasonably priced.

The nose on this is nice, with the La Cofradia classic aroma, although I must say it is a little hot, especially for an anejo.

The taste follows the nose, with predictable La Cofradia characteristics of sweet agave, but with a bit of oak in this anejo. It is actually fairly bright for an anejo, likely due to the alcohol tingling on the tongue. The body is light for what you might expect in an aged product, so not remarkable in that regard.

There is a heated finish that is unexpected and longer than I personally wanted, again not expected from an anejo, but more La Cofradia taste coming through.

For what I paid it was okay. Kind of a supplemental sipper/shooter, but not one to sip all night. It's only redeeming characteristic for me was the La Cofradia taste. I had one bottle crack, so had to transfer it to another bottle before total leakage, and the cork cap is make of plastic, so cheap components all around in the packaging I have had.

Bought in Cabo San Lucas in December 2011 for 16.95 US for a 375 bottle. Knowing that it is the same NOM that produces one of my faves, Casa Noble, I was curious to try. Tried in a snifter on January 12, 2012. Nose is lovely with that CN edge to it, but the initial taste seemed very anisette to me. Thick tears. Great finish, little burn and a warming sensation. This is a solid anejo that would be great for folks building a collection on a budget. I love the look of the bottle - (although the the cork is rubber, not true cork), but it's a great looking bottle with enjoyable juice. Would recommend this and buy it again.
