My brother bought me this 1921 Añejo in the Mexican border town of Progresso, Tamaulipas circa June 2012. I finally got the nerve to break the wax-seal (ala Maker's Mark bourbon) and open it up recently. The aroma is vanilla-sweet; has me thinking whiskey barrels? Topped off with a less discernable but pleasing agave smell, which makes for a very inviting tequila. The color and consistency seem lighter than many other añejos. It is sweet on the entry, but complex through the finish, with agave, charred oak, and spice lingering along with some alcohol potency. I noticed that a few seconds after tasting, there were still some good quality flavors hanging around...definitley an añejo with character. I recommend trying this sipper.
