There is no mixed review in my book. We can talk about all of the different flavors a "purist" may distinguish, but that's not me. I tried the Reposado and thought it was good to be mixed because it wasn't smooth enough for me to drink straight. For the little cost of $45 before taxes, this El Mayor Anejo was well worth a try. Unlike many, I like my Tequila on the rocks and let it breath for a minute. I was shocked at the smoothness for a Anejo for less than $100. It was very smooth going down with no alcohol burn. The after taste was SO smooth and pleasant my glass which holds two shots was gone in a flash. I was getting tired of higher cost Anejo's that had a very distinctive pepper after taste.
I waited until my third bottle was history to put this review out there to make sure I wanted to give it my blessings. As I finish off my second glass........wish you were here :) Until I attend my next Tequila Tasting Party, this Bad Boy in my #1.

My mentor, who owns the store, said this one was well worth a try. At $40, it was well worth the cost. i've spent twice the money and felt let down. The initial nose was very sensual and pleasing with notes of carmel and butterscotch. Very smooth going down with no alcohol burn. There mentioning of pepper is over stated and barely noticed. This one is at the top of my list as a favorite. DAMN, I love the aroma !

I kept seeing this bottle everywhere and never saw it. The reviews seemed mixed and the price seemed a bit high until I found it for $26 at Total Beverage (instead of around $45 like it is most places).

Aroma: A great agave/caramel/vanilla nose.
Initial taste: Pleasant agave and caramel. Not as sweet as the nose might suggest.
Body: A great, dark color and thick body. Some spice notes and plenty of wood and pepper come through in the body as well.
Finish: A nice heated and spicy finish to compliment the anejo sweetness. Maybe a bit more alcohol burn than I want from an anejo.

I can see why the reviews are mixed. Had I paid $45 for this bottle, I would have felt mixed about it as well. However, for $26 (or even the $30-35 range), this is a good value anejo that should please a wide variety of people. The bottle looks nice and is a really nice heavy quality.

The Bottle shape on this tequila is quite unique yet classy (almost womanly) drawing you in for that inital draw. hints of orange mix in with the light smoke and caramel on the nose. The initial taste carries on with the orange and caramel but adds notes of something sage like. The body is robust and extremely pleasant and the finish is long and mellow. All in all this is a very good product and has moved up my list. I am holding onto the last couple of glasses not wanting it to leave the cupboard.

On a recommendation I tried this bottle. I found it for about $30. To my surprise it was very good. I've tried tequila at twice the price and found El Mayor more enjoyable. Give it a shot or a sip.
