There's a lot of really well aged and rich tequilas that come out of NOM 1146. Enrique Fonseca really knows what he's doing with a barrel...and the base juices are pretty tasty as well. So it goes without saying that I'm looking forward to tasting this añejo from Purasangre.

Price: $45-55/bottle

Aroma: Vanilla/Caramel, dried fruits (raisins, peaches), pak, anise and spice. A complex array of scents.

Initial Taste: Cooked agave, caramel and fruit. The oak is there as well.

Body: There's a dark color and a rich, oily body for this tequila. The body brings forward a lot more of the wood flavors. There's dark spices and dark chocolate in the mix with the fruity agave flavor.

Finish: A long and woody linger with this tequila. The sweetness is still there, but it combines with cloves, oak, black licorice and smoke to linger for an eternity.

This bottle is a very good example of the juices coming out of NOM 1146. A lot of oak and spice in the añejos. If you like a rich, woody and smoky añejo, you will love this one. If you have liked aged tequilas from 1146 in the past, you should buy this. I dig it and very much recommend it at the price point.

Aroma: Tropical fruit, berries, wood, licorice, raisins, vanilla.
Initial taste: Sweet on entry, with a semi-oily mouthfeel, and no bitterness. Very smooth with wood and agave hitting first.
Body: Well balanced with fruit flavors developing around wood, agave, and caramel.
Finish: Medium-to-long with wood and spice lingering.

Overall, a fine extra anejo and very quite enjoyable. I love the presentation and would probably have a bottle on my shelf at all times just to show it off. The juice inside is worth a try as it is very good, but not quite enough to knock off the big boys.

I really liked the nose on this - a strong fruit presence, but unusual and took me a minute to hone in on what was a nice and unique blend of banana and a light leather aroma. Very nice. I think this would go well with a nice cigar because of the aroma alone.

There was a pretty good oak/agave balance, although it was a little too oaky for my liking and a touch too peppery. It is a nice, complex tequila though.

The bottle is cool; unique but not overstated, with a cactus blown into the bottom that you can faintly see through the tequila in the bottle.

Purasangre Gran Reserva Anejo, tasted 3/28/2008, 9:00 PM. I was drawn to this tequila because I liked the rich look of the aged tequila and I wasn't disappointed. It has a bright, deep, rich amber color, a very plesant nose with a sweet aroma of carmel. Buttery taste and medium body with a nice balanced agave taste, rich medium finish with a short alcohol intensity and a really good flavor. I haven't learned to identify all the flavors and tastes of tequila yet but I thought it was very smooth and enjoyable to drink, I liked it allot. The presentation is top notch with a nice decorative bottle in a rustic glass front wooden case and 2 stemed glasses. It was a good purchase.
