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.
The nose has lots of caramel,leather. Taste has butter, vanilla, sweet with a little spice and subtle well balanced oak. It's a full-bodied anejo with a slight oily feel, very little alcohol burn with good agave flavor. At a price of $42, it's a steal! Very attractive modern looking bottle. It's easy to see why this anejo won the gold at the 2008 Agave Spirits Challenge, you will love it.
