TEQUILA HERRADURA Seleccion Suprema Edicion Limitada Anejo NOM 1119. This tasting is from LOT # 020429064 from December 2005. This anejo is so good I was disinclined to do a review fearful that I would not be able to do it justice. I decided to go ahead to encourage others who may be uncertain about rather this tequila is worth the price. Without any hesitation I say it definitely is. I bought this bottle at a great price of $189.00. There is considerable debate about the differences between the older batches (2005 and lower) and the newer bottles labeled "Extra Anejo". I cannot comment on this as I only have tasted this older batch. I would list HSS as a top contender in the extra aged category. Appearance is a complementing dark reddish brown amber color. Nose is a well developed and perfectly intense blend of roasted agave, caramel, cream soda, wood, coffee, and tobacco. I also pick up components of raisins, a mixture of fruity sweetness, and delicate citrus. The taste follows suit and is outstanding with pure sweet aged agave. A medium and refreshing mouth feel, yet it still conveys the fullest of extra aged flavors and it is scary smooth. There is a moderate bourbon aspect here but it is certainly complementary and not overpowering. I could find no bitterness anywhere and this anejo introduced new meaning to the term "duration of aftertaste"Â. I have never experienced such an enjoyable aftertaste that goes on forever. It simply has everything I look for in a dark anejo period. The awesome presentation could be judged a bit over the top and I'm sure brings up the price, but it is functional and believe me once you taste it you will want to protect this bottle.
