Tres Rios Tequila Anejo

Tres Rios Anejo Tequila - Aged to perfection after eighteen months in charred wooden barrels, this Tequila displays a deep, intense caramel color that embodies its complexity. The unmistakable taste of sweet vanilla and smoke imparted by the ageing enhances the original fruit. The result of this exclusive technique is a complex taste, balance, and character that form a symphony for the taste buds.

The yeast in Tres Rios is allowed to ferment for 24 to 28 hours, no more, no less, to achieve the perfect balance that is observed in this fine and smooth tequila. The Ojeda family uses artesian well water from a depth of 90 meters below the surface to compliment the quality of the distillation process. After the Agave is cut, it is stacked to bake in a brick oven for 36 hours, compared to the average of 12 to 24 hours, to impart the particular nuances of Tres Rios.

2007 - Vince Neil, lead singer for heavy metal band Mötley Crüe, launches Tres Rios Tequila at the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival.

The first thing that attracted me to this tequila was the box it came in. On the top and sides it said "Tlaquepaque Tequila." Well, I had been to this suburb of Guadalajara and I never saw Tres Rios there. I bought the bottle in Salisbury, Maryland and brought it back home (Va. Beach, Va.) to taste test. This was about three years ago in 2010. Over the past few years I have purchased a lot of tequila and sometimes it takes me an extended period of time to write up my tasting reviews. This is the case with Tres Rios.
Let me say that I am always suspicious when a tequila is introduced with an endorsement from a famous person. The term "Kiss of Death" comes to mind, but I am open-minded and try just about everything - so here goes. In a Riedel glass, Tre Rios Anejo has a nice honey/champagne color. The legs are varied and do not run symmetrically down the glass. Giving the tequila sufficient time - there remains spotting, like rain drops on a window pane. Aromatics are light with fruit, toffee and butterscotch overtones. The initial taste is quiet alcoholic and the liquid coats the tongue. teeth and palate. I tasted spices, leather, wood and possibly a bit of smoke. In other words, this tequila smelled one way and tasted another. On the finish or second swallow - the alcohol remained strong and lingered throughout the tasting. Tres Rios Anejo is a good tequila (at a reasonable price) and the bottle lends itself to pouring caballitos again and again. Really good to sip with sangrita between glasses. I add a few drops of lime to each shot - just to mellow the taste.

well I was surprised to find that there were no reviews of this tequila to date. Our "Tequila Hounds" found this in one of our local haunts and brought it to the party. Turns out it has one of those marketing hanging tags, to help you feel better about your purchase. Info from the tag says that old 80's rocker Vince Neal found this "where the three rivers converge". 'Nuff about that, onto the review.

Not bad...not very bitter...no real alcohol burn...fair price...fairly pleasant aroma. For the most part...no where nearly as bad as the worst, but not above the 94-95 rating range. I'd say this tequila falls into the 91-92 range.
