Trianon Tequila Añejo

Trianon Tequila Añejo is 100% Agave produced at Tequilera Las Juntas in Amatitan, Jalisco, Mexico. Trianon Tequila Añejo is aged for 18 months in both American and French oak barrels and is blended before bottling.

Third generation master distillers, Alejandro and Saul Ocampo, use traditions and techniques created long ago. Every batch of Trianon Tequila is small and not mass produced, and created only when the time is right. The distillery is located in Amatitan, which sits at the foot of El Colcan de Tequila (the Volcano of Tequila), where the rich, volcanic soil makes the Blue Weber Agave grow larger and more luscious than anywhere else.

I am quite angry about this purchase. At $53 before tax I was expecting much more. A letdown right from the nose that just wreaks of cheap tequila. Lowland agave are used in all of my favorite juice but I just found one that is junk. This tequila's only saving grace are the notes of caramel and baking spices but even they are short lived. This stuff should be in the $20 range but even then I'd rather have a bottle of Espolon or Olmeca Altos.

My final review of the Trianon line up. The first two have been solid entries for sure and I'm in love with the trio bottle packaging which you can buy in stores as well. This one is just the añejo, which also has a nice and sleek look. Trianon is still the only effort I've ever had from NOM 1500 (Tequilera Las Juntas, S.A. de C.V.). The color on it is really dark and inviting. I'm going to take that invitation to dive into this bottle.



Price: $40/bottle

Aroma: A nice nose with agave, ripe fruit and cinnamon.

Initial Taste: A rich and caramel filled entry. Some agave and spice too, but a nice desserty richness.

Body: A thick bodied añejo with a really nice mouth feel. The caramel and spice richness remains. Not the most complex tequila, but it does these flavors very well.

Finish: It's exactly what you should expect. A strong spice linger that lasts a while. A good finish to a good tequila.


Trianon Añejo might be my favorite of the line. It owns it's profile well and is a really pleasant drink. For the price, if you like dark, caramel, cinnamon and a hint of bitter oak, this is for you. A very nice effort.

The anejo definitely has the best nose of the flight with caramel and slight oak. The taste has continuing caramel from the nose, and some cooked agave, with maybe a hint of fruitiness. Body is light and fairly thin. I would like a little more substance from this anejo. The finish is smooth...really too smooth with nothing to remark on other than continued caramel sweetness.

The anejo is the best one of the flight, but that's because the barrel-aging is covering up sub-par juice IMO. This is priced in the premium category where, frankly, it doesn't belong. I purchased the flight of stacked 375ml bottles, which is clever. I have also seen the individual 750ml bottles in stores - attractive, but not anything special or unique. Note that in the stacked set, the bottom two are the aged products, and the spout is very short and difficult to pour from, with a very small natural cork.
