Tasted on 12/22/08 out of a snifter at home. Purchased bottle for $38 bux. This line is unique in that I like the blanco the least, and their anejo the most. This is a very good anejo, and for the price I'd say Ill definitely put this anejo is one of my more liked anejos. Also, for some reason, the presentation on their anjeo is alot more appealing than the rest of the line. Very nice cork stopper. Good job, Cazadores!
Aroma:A strong presence of fruit and floral, with a lighter presence of vanilla.
Initial Taste: A semi oily mouth feel with a very nice entry, its sweet with no bitterness and the first taste being of fruit.
Body: A somewhat mild body ( in the agave regard), with hints of wood and smoke.
Finish: A semi heated and sweet finish of long duration with a woody/fruity lingering.
I sipped this out of a shot glass after eating pizza (not ideal, I know). Cost me about $45 in MI.
Nice scent, not extraordinary, but nice - some floral, pepper, and very slight vanilla presence.
I loved the initial taste - very sweet, almost buttery, which was evident to me in the body as well. The body was more oily than I expected, not too much, but definitely there. The finish was a little warm and oily, and flavors were slightly peppery, oak, with a little more subtle agave presence than I would hope for, but delicious still.
This is a great value anejo, and I'd recommend it, but not my favorite. In the price range I think Don Julio's anejo has it beat hands down.
Good well balanced anejo. A sweet vanilla nose, followed by a good agave taste, the finish is a little strong but that's what I like in a good anejo. I can get this at a great price of $47 a liter, if you can get it for this or cheaper, you won't be disappointed. I'll be keeping this in stock at my bar. :)
This may not be a perfect anejo, but I think it's highly enjoyable; particularly at the price point. In Ontario, this tequila can be had for between $40 and $43. By comparison, other anejos available at the LCBO: Don Julio 1942 - $139, Gran Patron Burdeos - $699, Avion Anejo - $95, Patron Anejo - $100, Sierra Milenario Extra Anejo - $68.
Now, while this anejo is not as enjoyable as the 1942, it is certainly much nicer than the Patron.
It is not terribly complex, but there are enough hints of wood, vanilla and spice to make it enjoyable.
Considering the price point and the other available options, I would say that the Cazadores is a no brainer to buy if looking for an anejo in Ontario.
