1 1/2 oz at room temperature in a mini snifter.
My indifference to Milagro's regular anejo kept me from paying the significantly higher price to try this one, but after reading some good reviews, I decided to give it a try.
Im glad I did, it was significantly better.

A good agave scent and smooth beginning taste was very pleasant, smooth with a oaky taste,which I tend to like in some anejos.
I didnt notice much of finish to it, but it was not unpleasant. A little bit of a numbness on the tongue crept in, but it wasnt a full fledged burns, which usually turns me off.

It has one the best looking bottles out there. But you pay for it. $84 in the Western Massachusetts area. You are definitely paying a sizeable surcharge for the bottle, but it would make a fantastic display.

Wow, this is a must have for any collector or Tequila Connoisseur. I was very skeptical paying 100.00 for a bottle I couldnt find much of a review on but I sucked it up and did it anyways. I couldnt of been more pleased. To my initial suprise there was no alcohol burn whatsoever. Along with probably the collest designed bottle of tequila out there, there is so much this product has to offer. I could sip this like a scotch and that brings up a good point. One thing I'm not fond of is the product lost a lot of Agave flavor after the aging in oak barells, making it taste similar to a scotch...a very high quality that is. You can really taste the oak and the smokey flavors although I must say, this was my 17th different bottle of Tequila to buy and review and it exceeded my expectations. I loved it and if I were rich I would consume it very often, it was quite worth the price. A+
