CT CRYER "I hesitate to give this tequila all 100s only because of my limited experience with super-premium tequilas"! Observation well taken as noted cabo uno is your favorite. Step up. Money is the issue here. Price justification is a personal issue here. Good deal @ 199.00. "the whole experience from start to finish was sublime." Anxiously waiting your "side by side". Do pick up another one at that price point if you find one at that and let me know , I'm almost dry.
This is a magnificent tasting tequila. Very light in body and with a wonderful aroma. It is a little on the sweet side. The price is on the high side for an extra anejo, but not out of bounds. The availability is difficult.
Wonderful tequila, love Seleccion Suprema although there are equally great tequilas for a much better price.
Great wood aromas such as coffee and caramel, the cooked agave dose come through, some nice fruit and very typical flowery notes from the house of Herradura. Nice body and color, long finish that is very woody.
This is a very nice tequila. It's got a sweet heavenly aroma with a very faint alcohol smell and a nice smooth taste. Its not as herby as other lowland tequilas either. I didn't find it smokey like other reviewers had mentioned. It's comes in a very nice bottle as well. My biggest issue with this tequila is the price. I've seen this sell for $400. For $400 I'd grab a Clase Azul Anejo or a Gran Patron Burdeos. However, I got mine for $275 so it wasn't too bad.
To sum it up, this is an amazing tequila. Its definitely the best all around sipping tequila I've had in the $200-$300 price range. The aroma alone will have you hooked. Whether or not it's worth the $275 to $400 price point is up to you. At $200 a bottle, this would easily be my go to sipping tequila.
I'd actually like to get another bottle of Clase Azul Anejo and compare the two at the same time. This tequila is pretty good.
