Anejos DR Don Ricardo de Hawaii March 25, 2007 108864
Tequila Don Julio Anejo sampled for the first time 10/13/08 from a Riedel glass. NOM 1449. Clear with a fairly light golden yellow color. Body is on the thin to medium side. Nothing overpowering about the the smell with milder elements of smokey wood, pepper, carmel, and vanilla. Seemed to me a rather youthful anejo. It has mild heat and tingle with slightly bitter but sweet tastes of butter, spice, and wood on the tongue. A medium duration finish with a pleasing balance of toasty oak and earthy green agave. I never did smell or taste much in the way of alcohol. Not a standout tequila, more middle of the road. It doesn't quite reach the level of better anejos in intensity but none the less a satisfying and enjoyable anejo. Presentation is unique Don Julio line, but plain. I have no complaints or problems with this afforable anejo.
