Tonala 100% Agave 4 Yr. Suprema Reserva Extra Anejo Tequila - NOM 1472. The appearance is a warm deep amber color with the standard pearls and slow legs. The fact that this tequila was aged in sherry and bourbon oaks barrels is very obvious in the nose. It's fruity with high bourbon, sherry, and spice, but not as much as you'd expect after aging 4 years. This is still very much tequila, with a very smooth body and not as hot as single barrel bourbons. It has a full smoky agave flavor, semi sweet, with mild bitterness. There are definitely more bourbon elements here than sherry with a dominate slow woody alcohol burn and a mild agave finish of medium duration. Everything I'd hoped for from this fine tequila was delivered, but it didn't exceed my expectations. The strong bourbon traits of this anejo diminish somewhat after the bottle has been open for a while. There is a fancy version of this bottle, hand blown with a couple of shot glasses encased inside, mine is the plain one with a wood and cork stopper but without much else to mention. I purchased this bottle on-line at Hi-Times for 52.99 per 750 ml. If you prefer a unique aged anejo and like bourbon I think you will enjoy this one.
