Tasted 07/23/08 out of double ball glass. 4 Copas anejo was an amazing experience. I actually prefer their anejo more than their reposado or blanco. And this is coming from a blanco drinker! To me, a very complex and memorable anejo. If I was to stock an anejo in my house, this one would be a candidate.
Aroma: I detected notes of vanilla, caramel, and agave. Actually, in that order.
Initial Taste: On the tip of my tongue, very sweet and almost syrup like. No bitterness.
Body: A very complex body with many flavors. Agave, a sweet vanilla, smoke, and wood.
Finish: I was a bit disappointed, but it was a short finish with a decent alcohol intensity.
Tasted in a snifter glass coating the glass with nice forming legs. 4 Copas Anejo Color: brown tint Aroma: brown sugar Taste: agave and brown sugar with slight oil mouthfeel with a smooth spicy finish The 4 Copas anejo is sweet with the taste of a dark brown sugar with a smooth long lasting finish. This is a superb sipper and being organic is not a stunt. This is a wonderful anejo ! The 4 Copas moves up with my favorite anejos as of this writing.
4 Copas Anejo NOM 1457 tasted 2/29/08 in Riedel glass. This tequila is one of the top rated anejo's out there for a reason. There's not much more I can say about this exceptional tequila except to add myself to the list of people who thoroughly enjoy it. It's top notch all the way. Full intense agave, just the right amounts of sweetness, blends of vanilla, carmel and smokeyness. Smooth and bold at the same time. Not to be missed.
4 Copas Anejo NOM 1457 Tasted on 4/30/07 at 10:20pm. 4 Copas anejo cost me about $100 at BevMo. I tasted this tequila in my home and used a Riedel glass for tasting. The bottle is similar to a normal bottle except for a unique design on the back of the bottles which is a man on horseback whose head is an agave plant. 4 Copas ages their anejo for at least one year which causes it to be a dark golden color. Intense aromas of this tequila include earth and floral are followed by moderate notes of fruit, vanilla, spice, caramel, and smoke. In the mouth, the anejo is oily and heavy. While the tequila is sweet and almost syrupy, there is only a minimal hint of bitterness. When examining the flavors of 4 Copas Anejo, first impressions include intense earth and floral accents. On a second sip, I noticed moderate flavors of agave, vanilla, and smoke. When searching for deeper flavors upon tasting the tequila, one can taste mild notes of fruit, wood, caramel, and spice. Unfortunately, this tequila only has a medium duration of flavor but did have a nice numbing alcohol intensity. I awarded 4 Copas Anejo the rating of 90 points out of 100.
