Somethings not quite right about this anejo as a sipper. Its getting reasonable marks here but I'm not feeling it. A very strange off fuelish nose with barely there agave. Harsh entry. After taste leaves a lot to be desired and little to admire. Long on lip numbing. No tongue coating body. Fast legs. First time I've seen a plastic fake crystal stopper. Worth the $19 paid. I think someone already figured that out. Just not for me.

A simply amazing anejo from a great lesser known line.

Aroma: Caramel, Oak and Agave. A great nose.
Initial Taste: Sweet caramel and agave with hints of spice and wood.
Body: A great full body that coats the mouth and allows you to taste all of the flavors of oak, caramel, brown spices, agave and pepper.
Finish: A great complex finish that lingers for a medium length. You taste something new and wonderful every time you drink it.

At $40-50, this is a steal. The reposado is equally so. This is a real gem of an anejo that is aged perfectly. The bottle is decent, but the fact that it houses such a good tequila is the best part of it.

EDIT: This is a revised review. Although I still think very highly of this line, I am backing off on the throttle a bit after another year of experience.

The nose is very pleasant, albeit predictable, with caramel, vanilla, and only the slightest tinge of oak. The taste has a background of mildly charcoaled oak, with sweet caramel and vanilla definitely present as well with only slight spice. A well-balanced body in all respects. An ultra smooth finish with a mild, balanced burn; cooked agave comes back to make it sweet all over again.

This should satisfy any sweet-tooth out there. It is a very nice anejo that is the epitome of what you expect from an aged tequila - sweet cooked agave with a bit of oak. It is not the most complex anejo out there, but definitely a solid example of what an anejo tequila can be. I got this bottle on clearance for about $23, which is a steal for an all-around good anejo like this. The bottle design on the anejo is totally different than the blanco and reposado in shape and size, but it is still quality glass. They stick with the plastic stopper as well, but pouring is a little more difficult with this design.
