Republic Tequila Añejo

Republic Tequila Añejo is 100% Blue Agave, aged in Organic Jack Daniels barrels for 20 months, and is proudly produced at the Agave Conquista distillery. Republic Tequila is handcrafted from estate grown Blue Agave from the Autlan Region, using traditional methods and natural aerobic fermentation. Agave Conquista is a 7 level, gravity fed eco-friendly distillery that has an artesian well on the property, uses stainless steel stills with copper coils, and a chilled filtration technology from Japan to remove fatty acids and any other impurities from the end product.

The complexity of this organic Añejo makes it perfect for sipping.

Republic Tequila is available in 2 bottle styles, a standard bottle and a unique Texas shaped bottle which pays tribute to the great state of Texas.

Republic Tequila changed distilleries in late 2012 from Tequilera la Quemada to Agave Conquista.

There so much to like about a brand like Republic. Unique bottle, reasonable price and a good distillery (my bottle is NOM 1457). The blanco has a very natural taste reminiscent of El Tesoro with grassy notes and is well balanced. The green olive/vegetal notes have grown on me, but that review was nearly 300 reviews ago so it's safe to say that I've had time to appreciate certain aspects that maybe I hadn't before. Enough about the blanco, let's dive into this anejo...

Price: $40/bottle

Aroma: A fairly faint nose with nice cooked agave, musty aspects and oak. I'm getting some faint fruit as well.

Initial Taste: Cooked agave and light vanilla and oak.

Body: The body has great oils and is very complex. The agave is very present throughout and the flavors from the blanco emerge as well. There's grassy/vegetal notes and light pepper that combine nicely with the sweeter barrel aging flavors.

Finish: The finish has some mint, pine, oak and pepper. It lingers nicely with a light hint of musty vanilla sweetness and a hint of bitterness that is a bit like dark chocolate.

If you like the blanco, you'll like the anejo. It's not overly sweet and really still has the biggest focus on the agave aspects more than the barrel. Lots of complexity and balanced throughout. If you are looking for a lowland anejo that still has lowland agave flavors, you should definitely check out Republic Anejo. It's definitely well priced for what you get in the very unique bottle.
