Don Julio! Always a treat to the taste buds. Many years ago when I knew almost nothing about good tequila, a colleague insisted that I try Don Julio anejo. "This is what the president of Mexico drinks", he said. If it's good enough for him then, by golly, it's good enough for me. I was thoroughly taken in by its excellent bouqet and smooth rich flavor. And now, all these years alter, it still pleases me whenever I'm in the mood for that agave goodness. A little sweeter than most other fine anejos, but with good character. In the many years since, I've come to prefer reposados, but this anejo is always welcome.

Bought Don Julio NOM-1449 at Costco last yr, paid $55 for 750 ml. Recently had a couple oz.s for this review from a big shot glass. Bottle is not a reason to buy, although it is complete with info you expect from a quality product and the top seals nicely. Amber in color and leaves some legs. Nice earthy nose with caramel and a bit of fruit in there. Medium mouth feel and the barrel starts to come in a bit. Goes down smooth, has a bit of heat in the finish and an oak/spice tingle is left on the tongue and roof of the mouth. Over all very nice, complete, everything there you would expect but nothing "extra". I am indifferent to the presentation. There are other Anejo's I prefer for the $. Don J. has been collecting dust for quite some time and I don't see it changing anytime soon. 88 overall.

A good staple tequila, makes a great drink and nice in a snifter too. Still affordable and can taste both agave and wood, with a light sweetness in the nose and taste.
