Bought 2/10, paid $55. 1921 single barrel Anejo, NOM-1079, Mother of some excellent tequila's and my current favorite Herencia Mexicana Anejo. Presentation is classic with a wax sealed synthetic cork that works well. Sampled from a riedel glass neat. Color is straw, in the glass leaves fast legs and gathers to form small tears. Nose is subtle, fruity, agave/alcohol and oak, but nothing overwhelming. Not as complex as some but better than most. Medium mouth feel upon entry and very smooth on the way down. The finish has some heat that will flush to the roof of the mouth then an oak after taste settles in. Again, nothing overwhelming or distracting, less is more in this case. Overall a quality experience, but maybe forgettable sooner than later. 89 points overall for the tequila, price and presentation are outside factors. IMHO, for a few $ more you can enjoy their Herencia Mexicana thats more complex, interesting and has a wow factor not found with 1921.
