Don Fernando Tequila Anejo

Don Fernando Tequila Anejo

Don Fernando Anejo Tequila is aged for 24 months in French Limousine oak barrels. Full bodied, dark amber color with golden tints, the taste confirms the cooked agave, very smooth and double distilled. Don Fernando is an exclusive Tequila for fine palates who appreciate the value of real 100% Añejo Tequila.

Revisiting Don Fernando. I loved the reposado and what I had read on the anejo looked promising. Upon pouring, this looks like a dark, rich anejo. Let's see how it tastes.

Aroma: Honey, Oak and spices (cloves)
Initial Taste: Rich caramel and toffee flavors. A bit of agave and oak too.
Body: Thick body. Tons of spices like cinnamon and cloves to go with the rich sweetness of the caramel and wood.
Finish: Medium-long and nice and spicy for an anejo. A slight dark chocolate bitterness with the dessert like sweetness. A really nice finish to a nicely aged anejo.

This is just flat out a great sipper. Nice rich flavors, nice tequila spiciness and a great nose and color. In the price range this is a very nice buy. I highly recommend it.

The nose has a slight hint of colves and honey. I was very surprised with the inital taste of this tequila. It has a soft and very sweet entery that is nice and smooth. The first taste that you get is a massive mouthful of honey and vanilla. The light sense of nuts, lead pencil, and popsicle sticks followed in the finish.

Wow. I tried Don Fernando Anejo at El Carmen in Los Angeles last weekend and was really impressed. As a preface, however, the bartender told me that the deep blue 3-litre bottle he poured from was over 7 years old and that he was not a fan of the new Don Fernando Anejo. That being said, here are my thoughts on the bottle that I tasted.

This is a really smooth tequila. The aroma is sweet with a hint of clover. The oak does not overpower the agave and is accompanied by notes of caramel and coffee. This medium-bodied tequila has a medium to long duration of flavor with a hint of bitterness that really activates the saliva glands at the sides of the mouth.

At $33/shot at El Carmen, it falls into the "high-priced" category, but well worth it in my opinion.

My next goal is to find a current bottle of Don Fernando Anejo to compare. Until I can confirm that it "ain't what it used to be", I would strongly recommend this tequila.
