Tequila 1519 Anejo

Tequila 1519 Anejo is 100% Blue Agave, aged in oak barrels for a minimum of one year, and is a tribute to the Tequila connoisseur.

Tequila 1519 is intended as a salute to the first Andalusian steeds brought to Mexico in 1519. These horses became the seed stock for our famed Azteca Stallions lineage, now part of Mexico's pride and history.

Ana Maria Romero is the Tequila Master for Tequila 1519, and is responsible for the profile development of this brand. Ana Maria is known for her tasting and aroma expertise in the Tequila industry.

Tasted 08/31/14 from a Riedel Tequila Glass.
Appearance: Clear medium-light amber color.
Aroma: Light agave, oak, caramel, pepper and a hint of pear.
Initial Taste: Smooth agave, oak, and caramel with a hint of chocolate and baking spices.
Body: Light tears on glass and nice silky mouth feel. Flavors are very well balanced.
Finish: Medium-long very smooth finish of agave, oak, and spice.
Price: RRP: $39.99

This is a nice sipping anejo in the $30 price range. If you can find it on sale for under $30 buy a bottle, I doubt that you will be disappointed.

I'll just put it bluntly...whenever I hear the combination of the words Hi Time Wines and Closeout, I start salivating like some sort of Pavlovian Dog. It's just exciting when a place that sells 500+ tequilas discounts things steeply. This little fella was under $15 and just begging to find a new home in Minnesota. The call was just too strong. It comes out of NOM 1541 which makes some other nice brands like Montalvo and 916. I had the blanco a while back and it was pleasant, but a bit muted. Let's see if the barrel can kick things up a bit.

Price: $25-30/bottle (but $13.99 at Hi Time Wines currently)

Aroma: Complex combination agave, oak, anise and dark chocolate.

Initial Taste: Lots of barrel flavors without being syrupy or sweet. Dark chocolate, mint and baking spice.

Body: Medium bodied with a nice color. The wood flavors are still strong. Big spice notes and wood combine with agave kick. A nice balance.

Finish: A long linger of oak, dark chocolate and brown spices (nutmeg, cloves).

I like the balance of the aging in this one without it being too sweet. It's well worth the price with th unique profile at $25-30, but at under $15 it's nearly a must buy for your tequila collection. I love closeouts...
