Sol de Mexico Tequila Anejo

Sol de Mexico Tequila Anejo is produced from 100% Blue Agave, and aged in used bourbon barrels for 14-18 months. This Anejo Tequila is perfect for sipping.

Paschal Don Gonzalez Gutierrez and his son Juan Gonzalez Ramirez planted their first agave seeds in 1951 in the sun-washed highland fields and volcanic soil of Jalisco, Mexico, beginning the journey of Sol de Mexico. Today, great grandson Cesar Gonzalez is the driving force that continues the tradition of distilling this premium Tequila. With the additional guidance of Master Distiller Salvador Fonseca, each step of the production is steeped in a culture that has been handed down in his own family for generations.

As people previously have indicated, this is a very flavorful and complex tequila.

Aroma: A nice mix of agave, caramel, spice, earth and anise.
Initial Taste: Agave and spice. A very pleasant entry.
Body: The wood becomes more evident and complements the other flavors or agave, earth and spice.
Finish: At the end, you get just a bit of black licorice and a pleasant linger/burn that lasts nice amount of time.

The bottles is unique and pretty cool. The price around $50 is fair for a tequila of this quality. For tequila lovers, this is a must try is you like a nice, complex anejo.

purchased 2/24/10 paid $65. sampled at home from 2 oz shot glass. Very light nose does not betray what lies in wait. setts on the tongue very well but this tequila needs to be swallowed to appreciate. has a strong oak body with stout legs. It hits hard initially and settles slowly, very nice after an eye opening start. Have a one oz. shot and see what I mean!!! This is a "MANS" tequila, subtle yet bold and never over bearing. You know you've spent your hard earned $ well with this anejo. Slightly oily and leaves the tears we expect from a full bodied Anejo. Now where did i leave my cuban...

I purchased this at first because of the beautiful hand blown bottle. Beautiful! This tequila is great from start to finish. It starts with a flavor and taste explosion, very intense but pleasant. Sharp citrus and agave flavor. A little peppery and fiery and then smooth the rest of the way. A very nice surprise. Well worth the cost!
