One of the first really nice anejos I tried and still one of my favorites. In Oregon you pay about $55 per bottle which is a little steep for liquor aged 1-2 years when compared to a bottle of single malt scotch aged 12+ years that costs the same here.

I have had Don Julio Blanco many times, and as I write this there's a bottle and a half of the Reposado in my cabinet. But believe it or not, I hadn't had the Añejo until very recently. I love the other offerings so it was of no surprise that the añejo now has become a favorite too. Don Julio Añejo has an excellent all around palette, from a sweet nose and intitial taste, to an exceptionally smooth burn as it goes down. It has a fairly rich consistency, maybe a bit oily which I kind of prefer in a preminum tequila. Although it can be spotted at a multitude of bars, I still feel that the presentation is very fitting for a distinguished tequila that has been around for years. This stuff is a benchmark añejo; try it if you haven't yet.

This is an old standby. It's a fantastic tequila and it's always easy to find. While it doesn't have the big taste of anything that makes it really unique, but it's always wonderful and represents everything that a good anejo should be.

Aroma: Agave, vanilla/caramel.
Initial Taste: Very sweet...almost like a dessert. Agave flavor and vanilla are really what you get first.
Body: Medium body. You get a little oak taste, but mostly you get more of the same of what you got with the initial taste.
Finish: Very little linger and no burn at all. A pleasant end to a very good tequila, but it doesn't remind you that you drank it. However, it does still leave you wanting more.

This is a near perfect anejo to get non-tequila drinkers into enjoying the juice. It's ultra smooth and has a nice flavor that should be pleasing to most anyone. Well done, Don Julio.

What more can I say that hasn't already been said?

Don Julio Anejo is a very good, all around sipping tequila. It's not the best, and it's not the cheapest, but it is a very good tequila that has earned its reputation honestly.

I have my personal favorites, but this sipping tequila is one that I keep on hand for when company is over. The nose, taste and finish are pleasing and the name is known to most--even those who may not drink tequila on a regular basis. With that combination, it's hard to beat when sharing with friends.

I love the DJ Blanco, so I made the plunge from my Blanco binge and chose this Anejo. I tried several Anejos since I purchased the bottle, samplers and 50mL versions. I acquired a taste for Anejos in that time and have since found great pleasure in this Anejo, I find it second to only the Corzo Anejo, which I find to be a little smoother and have a little more flavor.

Lets get into this.

Color: A light caramel with medium legs.
Nose: Citrus and Caramel
Taste: Caramel and oaky butterscotch with Vanilla, just what you want from a good Anejo and this delivers. It is smooth too with little or no alcohol burn. Great Agave flavor in here too.
Finish: Sweet and woody with touches of honey for a long delicious finish.

I love it. It has turned me into a customer for life, and an Anejo drinker.

The bottle could look a little nicer.
