When examining whether or not to buy a new tequila, there's lots of factors to consider: NOM, Brand (if you've had other expressions), Price, Age. All of those led me to believe that this tequila was going to be good purchase. From NOM 1103, which houses other great brands like Rey Sol, Pueblo Viejo and San Matias, this "pride" of the brand is almost certain to be good, right?

Price: $40-45/bottle

Aroma: A nice rich mix of vanilla/caramel and light fruity/floral notes. Definitely heavier on the sweet scents.

Initial Taste: A nice complex entry: Caramel, Berries and Oak...all mixed together well.

Body: Medium-thin body. A nice anejo body full of vanilla and oak as the most prominent flavors with lighter notes of fruit and light spice.

Finish: A medium length finish with a nice bit of sizzle and lingering cooked agave, caramel and floral notes. Not as spicy/peppery of a finish as some might want, but the flavors work very well together.

This is a solid B+ level tequila. It's not quite good enough to be in the upper eschelon of tequilas, but it certainly good enough to sip with friends and be proud to serve it. At the price point, it's a solid purchase.

purchased 3/12/10, paid $40. I have been "sampling" since then ;-). I compared this and San Matias both NOM-1103 at the same time to detect subtle differences if any. I find this a good way to develop your palate. The bottle is nice if not a bit ordinary, corked top, thick quality clear glass, with plenty of info on the labeling. Color is light amber. Nice semi complex nose does not need to settle unlike its older sister. Hits the tongue with a burst of sweet caramel/vanilla and has a nice smooth swallow with a latent agave/alcohol finish that lingers for awhile, this is a quality I prefer over a quick burn. This is not as complex as this NOM's San Matias, for $5 more you get the extra character you may be searching for. Overall a quality product one that I continue to come back to because there is nothing disappointing and a great finish. I'll buy again.

Purchased from Ramirez. Was intrigued by the reviews stating that this was a lot of bang for the buck. The Aroma was a subtle fruit and caramel but not that strong. When I tasted this tequila I noticed that it was thin, somewhat dry. Some people like this feel for a tequila, however I like my anejos to taste sweet and almost syrupy (i.e. Don Julio). I agree with the previous reviews calling the taste mellow and soft. I would say that this reminded me a tad of Herradura in this respect. The tequila followed with moderate notes of agave and the same caramel and fruit that was evident in the nose. The finish had a long duration with a medium, spicy burn. Overall, this is a good value for around $40, however for my tastes and a few dollars more, I would much rather have Don Julio Anejo for it's aroma and sweet citrusy taste or the 1921 Especial (though technically a reposado). I would rate this at the B-level.

Purchased a bottle from Top Line in Glendale, Ca for $35. Tasted on 11/19/08 out of a double ball glass. I decided to try this anejo based on it's previous reviews and on the recommendation of the owner of Top Line. In his words 'For what you pay, it's the best anejo you can get.' Nothing could be further from the truth. An excellent anejo that goes down super smooth. I'd recommend this one to new anejo drinkers. Yet another example of not having to pay top dollar for a top notch product.

Aroma: A very simple yet inviting aroma of vanilla, caramel and a little bit of floral. I guess what's simple about this one is that they are so present and obvious, making them easy to detect.
Initial Taste: A thin mouth feel (is that unique to an anejo?), upon entry it was nicely sweet with no bitterness, and no alcohol burn either.
Body: A great anejo body, complex but not too complex. Cooked agave, vanilla, floral and fruit, with woody and slightly spicy hints.
Finish: A nice semi heated finish of long duration with a lingering taste of fruity caramel.

Just an excellent product!
