I think this is the best tequila I've ever tasted. Beautiful dark color; agave aroma and flavor not strong; very very smooth; I taste carmel and vanilla and the oak; great, long finish. Superb. I'm not sure I would pay $400-500 for a bottle of any kind of liquor, but I definitely buy this when it can be found for $200-250.

This is a fantastic spirit with great complexity, beautiful golden, red, copper tones with a nice medium to heavy body. Aromas are intense with heavy char from the barrel, fruit and flower, very little agave. Taste again very heavy with the barrel notes and then you get the fruit, some citrus (orange) and flower, with continued spices such as cinnamon. Long, long finish. For sure a treasure in the Herradura line, my question would be, are they hiding to much of the agave with some much barrel and not hiving enough importance to being a tequila?

So let me preface this by saying that if you really love lots oak and smoke then you will probably like this tequila a lot more than me. That said I have never enjoyed the nose of any tequila/ wine more than the nose on this. The nose was soooo complex with loads of cherry, strawberry and dried fruits. It was truly hard to pull this down away from my nose. The intial taste was a bit disappointing for me as I am not a huge oak/smoke fan (if I was I would probably drink a lot more Scotch than Tequila) and there seemed to be a lot of it, I actually had a hard time pulling out much else. The body was heavy and not as complex or enjoyable as the nose. The finish had good length and was not fairly smooth. The presentation is very nice on this bottle, I still like the presentation on Cabo Uno better but not by much. All in all I know there will be people out there who love this Tequila and as I said the nose is amazing, the style is just to heavy on some components for me and so the overall enjoyability came down.

This is a darn fine cognac...er...I mean tequila.

This juice has been aged for a little over four years in French oak, and it definitely shows. The aroma is fruity and woody like a champagne cognac, and there is little to no agave present on the nose. The initial taste is dry and satisfying, with hints (read: HINTS) of cooked agave showing through while slowly developing into rich flavors of wood, spice, and dark fruits. The finish is long and really quite fantastic with strong notes of vanilla.

All in all, this is a great drink, but I don't think I'd ever buy a bottle. First of all, this doesn't taste like tequila to me. I'm not a agave purist and I certainly don't mind extra anejos (they're some of my favorite), but this one takes the aging a bit too far in my opinion. But that's not to say you shouldn't at least try it yourself.

If I want cognac, I can find much better for less than $300.

CT CRYER "I hesitate to give this tequila all 100s only because of my limited experience with super-premium tequilas"! Observation well taken as noted cabo uno is your favorite. Step up. Money is the issue here. Price justification is a personal issue here. Good deal @ 199.00. "the whole experience from start to finish was sublime." Anxiously waiting your "side by side". Do pick up another one at that price point if you find one at that and let me know , I'm almost dry.
