Overall, this anejo came through as a very pleasant surprise. The initial tasting was a very rich experience. Among our group of "50 somethings" tequila drinkers, we have reached a consensus that this is a very complex and exciting tequila to sip. We have sampled several different bottles of this label and found variations of the overall taste. Very aromatic with a hint of earthiness and floral, teases a sense of vanilla at times. Very good for the price in its market, could use a little adjustment to the bottling, maybe a cork. Aroma: Floral, berries, and a mild earthiness Taste: Light at room temp, with very little bitterness (just ask the women) Body: Complex and probably not for the beginners Smoothness: Very light taste that does not linger and finishes with a very subtle warmth
Very nice anejo. In the nose I picked up strong vanilla, slight floral, a hint of perfume, and even a little touch of bazooka bubble gum/sweetness. Flavor is a bit more complex than many anejos, and a good balance of agave and oak. Can't put my finger on it, but just not overly impressed despite the complexity and decent balance. Presentation is pretty boring, and I don't like the plastic screw-on top they use. Maybe I'm just picky but I prefer a cork. I paid $43.99 for this bottle in NY. For that price it's a very good value.
Tasted in a snifter glass coating the glass. 7 Leguas Anejo Color: glimmering brown Aroma: butter popcorn, wood and agave Taste: spicy butterscotch, agave and very little wood with medium oil mouthfeel and a smooth spicy finish At a Tequila tasting in Mexico the presenter mentioned the 7 Leguas as his top anejo. He was on target. This is one of the best. If you want a spicy anejo this is the one.
Tasted on 01/20/09 out of a snifter. A pretty darn good anejo with a taste all its own. 7 Leguas is a very unique tequila and one of my favorites. The presentation is pretty darn cool too. Not one I'd recommend to beginners( I think it would be too complex for a new tequila drinker), yet something I'd recommend to an aficionado!
Aroma: A semi intense aroma of floral, berry and vanilla.
Initial Taste: A thin mouth feel, it was sweet with low bitterness.
Body: A nice woody agave with hints of smoke, vanilla, earth, and spice. A pretty complex body if u ask me!
Finish: A lightly heated finish of short duration with a lingering aftertaste of earth, and vanilla.
7 Leguas Anejo NOM 1120 Tasted on 4/20/07 at 6:30pm. I tried this tequila, which cost me $12, at Zocalo and tasted it in a snifter. With a yellow golden color, this tequila has intense aromas of floral and vanilla. Other aromas include moderate fruit with mild caramel. The tequila has a heavy mouth feel and on the first sip is sweet with a hint of bitterness. 7 Leguas Anejo has numerous arrays of flavors due to its 24 months of aging. Intense flavors of earth and floral are followed by moderate notes of agave. With a medium duration of flavor, tastes of mild fruit and caramel with a hint of smoke bring this tequila to a subtle numbing finish. 7 Leguas Anejo has received the rating of 91 points out of 100.
