Had it not been for a local bar that had me try a shot of this tequila I probably would have never tried it and that would be a shame as its in my top 5 favorites. You would NEVER think a $35 Anejo could be this good. The nose and the finish go so hand in hand together and thats an awesome thing because the nose is buttery/cream/butterscotch. There is a very minimal bit more alcohol burn than I would like but the finishing flavor is just so buttery. So glad I discovered it.

Corralejo Anejo is one of my favorite anejos! A body and finish that are absolutely spectacular! The flavor is rich and full. An incredible sip across the board. For most this will be priced on the high-side, but it will be quite average for more experienced tequila fans. The presentation is elaborate with bottle that is a striking red that looks handsome in any setting. :) handsome in formal settings. Stand up for a formal salute for this drink!

Tasted in a rocks glass on January 25, 2008 showing long, thin and medium lasting legs down the glass. Tasted in a bar along with food & friends unable to give my full attention for a dedicated review. Though here it goes.

Corralejo Anejo

Color: light carmel color
Aroma: oak and vanilla
Taste: light wood, fruit, vanilla, light agave with a less oily body than Corralejo Reposado, long smooth finish with a smooth burn

A good anejo for the price and even complimented by guests at the bar that have not experienced an anejo tequila before. The Corralejo Anejo would be a good rookie sipping tequila.

This is my last review of the Corralejo line. I've been really impressed with rest of the line. Very good flavor and really good value. I hope the anejo is as good as his younger siblings.

Aroma: Sweet cooked agave, vanilla and light citrus.
Initial Taste: Agave, vanilla and a bit of earth and citrus.
Body: Light anejo body. Not oily at all. Feels more like a reposado. Light vanilla, oak and spice (mostly pepper).
Finish: A light finish that lasts a fairly short duration. Agave, light oak, pepper and a hint of mint. Good, but not memorable...but very smooth as well.

This tequila is a pretty good value, but I think that I like the reposado better overall. Corralejo anejo is versatile enough to be sipper or a mixer and light enough to please most palates. I like it, but I don't really love it. The red bottle looks great, it's widely available and the price of under $40 is very good. I'd recommend it, but I'd recommend the blanco and repo from Corralejo more.

Tasted on 12/26/08 out of a snifter. This anejo that sipped more like a reposado to me. Go figure. Still, it was a decent anejo, although I found nothing special to report, and a bit overpriced though.

Aroma: straight up vanilla for my nose!
Initial Taste: A semi oily mouth feel, it was sweet with a slight bitterness. Initial taste of cherry (?).
Body: A body of agave, spices, and cinnamon.
Finish: A short heated finish with a lingering of vanilla.
