Sauza Hornitos Tequila Anejo

Sauza Hornitos Anejo Tequila - A 100% de Agave Tequila, exceptionally blended and aged one to three years or more in American oak barrels and contains hints of vanilla, toasted wood and chocolate for a soft, smooth taste. Deep, rich and complex, Hornitos Añejo is an excellent choice for savoring on its own neat in a snifter.

After reacquiring a taste for tequila I tried the usual brands, and then got into the ANEJO's. I realized that most of the premium brands only come in .75 ml's, of course this could be a regional thing (Cape Cod) is not exactly the tequila capital. But after trying many I found HORNITOS ANEJO to be as good and smooth as any premium brand for the money. I have a liquor store that only carries the RESPADO in 1.75's, but they order me ANEJO by the case in 1.75's. As any body knows the best price is in quantity, especially in alcohol. The only real problem I have is just like anything else, if you possess a lot you will more than likely drink a lot. But I have to say its a real good tequila for the money.

This is a decent follow up to the Hornitos Reposado.

Aroma: Caramel, Agave and Ripe Fruit.
Initial Taste: A nice sweetness that is unique to this one in the Sauza line.
Body: A decently thick body that coats the mouth with vanilla, oak and light spice.
Finish: By far the best of any Sauza product. Not much burn at all. A nice caramel linger that is quite sweet (probably too much for some) and is a nice change of pace.

This tends to be in the $25-30 range, so I'd bypass it for others, but it would be alright in a pinch if you need something widely available.

This is one of the smoothest and flavorful drink I have ever experienced. I am not a REDECK drinker, bt a very intellectual person, who is looking for the smooth and flavorful drink to enjoy - but I will write about my direct experience with an entire bottle of this Sauza.
A friend provide me with this Sauza as a special gift directly from Mexico. I took this bottle with me on a South Texas Hill Country get-a-way between San Antonio and Del Rio, Texas. The get away consist of a very remote hill side cabin, with campfire, South Texas Country Music, and the Big Texas sky.
When I cracked the seal on the bottle, the smell was very warm and aromatic. My girl-friend and I went shot-for-shot for about 10 rounds and this Sauza is very smooth going down and after about the 3rd shot the numbing effect started to kick in - and even to the point of being somewhat drunk afterwards, we never got past the point of losing control. The next day, we had absolutely no hang-over and even went on to do 11 shots the following night and still not burn/bite to the taste. This Sauza inital taste does have a carmel flavor after taste, but the fruitfullness entices you to go back for more.
I rate this very high simply because it is absolutely good to drink!!! The presentation of the bottle is simple and pleasing to all aspects to handle and access these spirits.

I'm a big fan of Sauza Hornitos Reposado as being the most affordable and drinkable 100% agave tequilas available in the U.S. - however I'm disappointed in the anejo.
I firmly detect added sugars. This is the same trick that Jose Quervo uses which is responsible for the horrible hangovers that people experience after drinking barely too much of it.
I would have hoped that Sauza could have just trusted in the time honored recipe and give as a quality and affordable 100% agave Anejo without the need to sweeten it up.
I'm completely happy with the earthy, hint of oak, smoky flavor of a decent anejo without the candy.

Sauza Hornitos Anejo NOM 1102 Tasted on 2/22/08 at 9:30pm. I tried this tequila at the Graduate in Davis, CA and tasted it out of a snifter glass. The tequila is amber brown in color. The Hornitos aromas consist of intense fruit and floral aspects followed by moderate earth and caramel. On the lighter side, this Anejo has mild aromas of spice. On the tongue, this tequila is mellow and has a oily mouth feel. While the tequila has moderate agave flavor, it is fairly sweet and has only a hint of bitterness. The flavor of this tequila contains intense notes of earth, coffee, and caramel followed by moderate agave, floral, and wood aspects. Deeper flavors of Hornitos Anejo consist of mild vanilla. Upon finishing this tequila, there is a medium duration of flavor and subtle numbing alcohol intensity. I have rated this tequila at 87/88 out of 100 points.
