Anejos DR Don Ricardo de Hawaii April 08, 2007 54659
This is an underrated top-shelf tequila. A quietly forward sweet/spicy sour/fresh floral nose. Taste has light sweetnesses beneath a very tasty agave. Soft vanillas and caramels remain on the tongue long after a terrific peppery finish and after-heat. This is when you realize you're drinking a beautiful thing. This anejo is subtle and complex, something you may initially want to discard as being too undefined or too not-enough. But it's a surprise. This is a tequila to sip and ponder on, as the nuances make themselves more and more apparent with every pour. The bottle's curious monolith design turns out to be a perfect representation of what's inside. This is an excellent tequila.
