I walked into this brand knowing literally nothing about it. I knew that it was from NOM 1137, which could mean just about anything given the huge size of that distillery. It has a premium price, so let's hope it has a premium taste:

Aroma: Earthy agave, oak and an orange/citrus scent. Lots of earthy agave for a 2 year aged tequila. Very rich.
Initial Taste: Earthy agave...and lots of it. The nose doesn’t lie.
Body: A very velvety body. Nice flavors of oak, vanilla and clove compliment the earthy agave nicely.
Finish: Medium length finish. The earthy agave flavor and pepper are very prominent. The sweetness is in the background, but adds a nice compliment.

The moment I tasted it, Senor Rio Anejo reminded my immediately of Cassa Noble Anejo. Same distillery, same age in the barrel, same barrels. It's a really good and complex anejo with an ultra smooth finish. With that said, Casa Noble Anejo is $20-30 cheaper. I'd definitely recommend drinking it, but at the price, I think you can do better...and you can get similar quality for cheaper.
