Tasted 08/05/14 from a Riedel Tequila Glass.
Appearance: Crystal clear pale straw color.
Aroma: Mild agave, with hint of oak and light fruit notes, i.e. pear and honey.
Initial Taste: Agave, caramel, oak, spice, and mild fruit.
Body: Medium-light body with medium tears; very light buttery mouth-feel. Flavors are well balanced.
Finish: Short to medium smooth finish with peppery agave that is complimented with hints of caramel, oak, and spice.
Presentation: Very distinctive hand-blown red bottle with a colorful “old” Mexico label.

This is a smooth and balanced anejo but the flavors besides agave are light and the fruit flavors were difficult to discern. It is not bad for sipping, it’s just that nothing really stands out. The current retail price for Corralejo Anejo in Southern California is in the $37 to $49 range. It is a pretty good value around the $30 price point if you can find it on sale.
