Maestro Tequilero Tequila Anejo Clasico

Maestro Tequilero Tequila Anejo was created by the acknowledged masters of the art of producing Tequila. It was created at the request of true Tequila connoisseurs, who suggested using an ancient and painstaking Tequila production process and only the finest of Mexico's agave plants.

In making this Tequila, we begin with carefully selected agave plants from the family's estates, where they have been lovingly tended as they mature. The chosen agaves are harvested prior to the rainy season, when they have stored up the highest concentration of sugars and the most intense essence of agave flavor.

These special agave are cooked slowly in ancient stone ovens. In this unhurried cooking process, the agave hearts release a concentrated "honey" which is separated and fermented naturally with yeast from the contentrated juices. The resulting mixture is then distilled slowly two times, yielding the very heart of this precious liquid. The Anejo is then aged slowly in selected fire-charred white oak barrels.

The result of this handcrafted process is the masterpiece known as Maestro Tequilero Tequila.

Not available in my area, I brought some back with me after a trip to Mexico. Upon presentation to friends, I was offered bribes to sell a bottle to a couple of guests. Maestro Tequilero Tequila Anejo was a hit at our cook out.

Agave aroma, initial taste agave and a little of wood, body is well so the legs and tears in the glass complain with a slow motion. The finish is marked with agave and a little wood flavour.

It has a little strong alcohol flavoured sense in al tasting mixed with the agave and a little woody note, very constant and not many complex with the progress of time rolling in your mouth.

There are better añejos out there and artesanales that definetely are much better for the same price but for this one the price is not excesive to me.

I first tried Maestro Tequilero in Cuervo's restaurant in the town of Tequila and was not impressed... we didn't even bother to finish it. Now that someone has given me a gift bottle and can try it at my leisure, I remain unimpressed. Attractively and securely packaged (so you can get it home intact, to be sure) colour is an unusually dark mahogany-gold. Nose is diverse with deep herbal and chemical aromas - something similar to camphor. Nose fails to improve with exposure. An over-reaching bitterness dominates the body and the agave fails to present itself. This tequila stumbles and muddles into a harsh, unsatisfying finish. Aftertaste is mineral and chemical with strong alcohol bite. Hmmm.... Like the 1800 Anejo, Maestro Tequilero is a Cuervo product, but apart from the NOM 1122, it carries no mention of Jose Cuervo anywhere on the product. I'll have to find a home for this one, too... but not on my bar.
