After seeing the reviews, I was anxiously awaiting trying this tequila. It didn't fail to deliver what I was expecting at all.

Aroma: The nose doesn't do the complexity of this tequila justice. It does smell a bit like a cognac, but with agave presence.
Initial Taste: Sweet agave and mild spice with some citrus.
Body: This is where the tequila shines. As it sits on your palate, you really get the spices and citrus along with the cooked agave. Cinnamon really stands out.
Finish: Pleasant tingle, very light burn and a nice long finish.

This is an outstanding tequila from top to bottom. It's a bit pricey at about $60 a bottle, but it's worth it. I'd recommend it to anyone. The presentation is good. The bottle is heavy duty and looks good on a shelf. The cap is poorly thought out, cheap and more difficult to get off than it should be.

Overall this is an A tequila.

A wonderful surprise ! You could enjoy this tequila the way you would a fine single malt scotch. A beautiful aroma, smooth taste, but I think the finish is the biggest surprise. A smooth, slightly sweet, almost cognac taste. Not the usual peppery taste of most tequilas.

I recently had the opportunity to taste Riazul Anejo tequila and I must say it is one of the tastiest and smoothest tequilas. Some popular Anejos have appealing intital tastes but lack a good finish. It also has great aroma and body. I had Riazul before dinner neat and after dinner on the rocks...it is a great before and afterdinner/lunch drink. An original presentation with beautiful balance, Riazul Anejo tequila is a superb find!

An extremely unique experience.
The nose is of light agave and I could swear a bit of bubblegum, though it's quick.
The mouthfeel is very soft and silky. The inital taste is of light agave then transitions to a cinnamon spice flavored body. The finish doesn't linger and leaves with zero burn.
This is completely different than any other Tequila I have had and it's made it's way into a permanent spot onto my Tequila shelf.

First off talk about a bottle scaring you away. It looks like a large bottle of cologne. I usually buy my liquor online, but needed a last minute gift for a dinner party. Found it locally (NYC) for $59. I don't pay that much for favorites like Corrido or Don Pilar. I tasted it in a shot glass which was not my choice. I was expecting quite a lot with such a high rating from members and editors, but I was quite disappointed. While I did find the nose interesting with scents of wood and vanilla, I found the taste very un-tequilalike. I think the spices were a bit much. They were too overpowering and, for me, seemed to mask the earthiness I come to expect from the agave. My rating is generous.
