Very good tequila at a very good price.

Aroma: Sweet nose. Lots of agave and caramel scents.
Initial Taste: Again very sweet with agave, vanilla, caramel and spices.
Body: Light body for an anejo and really smooth.
Finish: Very pleasant finish. Remains sweet and there is very little burn. A very easy tequila to drink.

I purchased it for $28 at Hi Time and for that price, it's a steal. Dos Lunas bottle & presentation is classy, but unspectacular. I'd recommend this to seasoned tequila drinkers or people looking for a nice value to start their collection.

The intial scent is of vanilla and agave as is the first sip. The body has a silky mouth-feel with plenty of vanilla. The finish disipates with only a touch of warmth leaving me with a touch of light agave.
I enjoyed this Tequila enough to go on a fairly sizable hunt for it while I was in Denver. I was lucky enough to find it since the distributor for that area dropped it.
It was priced very reasonable at $50.

After reading an article on Dos Lunas Grand Reserve, I knew I had to try the Dos Lunas brand. Tasted 6/12/10. The nose presented some complexities....the blend of spice, vanilla and caramel was perfect and fit the moment. From the first moment the tequila hit my lips and tongue, I was pleasantly surprised. With enough agave and minor alcohol presence, the body is well balanced. Then the finish sealed the deal for me....smooth and rich. Presentation is tasteful with a well designed bottle. Since this tequila will become a consistently stocked item for my bar, I will refer this brand to all who ask. Fortunately this bottle does not cost $2,200 like their Grand Reserve and worth every penny of the $45 I paid.

Purchased 2/10/10 for $40 a great price for a quality anejo. Sampling as we speak out of a 2 oz. shoot glass. My wife bought this because of the bottle... go figure. Wow, I'll let her buy from now on. This anejo has a nice complex nose, caramel, floral, vanilla and some pepper comes through. Sets in the mouth well, no burn or alcohol residue on the way down. Well balanced, smooth and full bodied but nothing over powering on any aspect. This anejo is slightly oily and leaves some tears. If I want a great tequila that everyone will enjoyand not break the bank, this is it. There are many excellent anejos, this is most certainly one to consider.

I bought this in NY for $49, which is a very good price for an anejo this good. It's pretty oaky, but also has a nice hint of butter/butterscotch flavor. A very notable aspect of this is it's smoothness; while it's slightly numbing, it is still incredibly smooth. This is a pretty complex anejo - if you told me I was drinking a $100 tequila I would believe you. A great tequila overall; one of the better I've had. If it were more widely available and had a touch more agave flavor I'd consider making this my go-to Tequila. This is definitely worth trying if you get a chance though, and a wonderfully made tequila!
