The flavor in this anejo was very surprising. What influences the taste of this tequila most, I think, is that it is rested for 18+ months in used bourbon barrels. The nose, initial taste, body, and finish are all affected by the bourbon flavor and aroma.

Trust me when I say I enjoy sipping a wide variety of reposado and anejo tequilas, but there is something about the bourbon influence that has turned me off to this anejo. Behind the bourbon was a slightly smoky, thin, sweet, and spicy initial taste and body, but the finish almost resembled a mixed drink, as the bourbon influence became overpowering.

I found a bottle on sale for $22.00, and since I like trying new tequilas I picked it up, but I won't be buying another. It is in a slick bottle and it smells interesting, but beyond that, I believe the barrels they chose have killed a potentially premium tequila. At full price ($62.00) I would definitely steer clear of this tequila.

Trago Anejo NOM 1474 Tasted on 4/4/08 at 9:10pm. I tried this tequila at the Grad Tequila Bar in Davis, CA and tasted it in a snifter. With a golden amber color, this tequila has intense aromas of smoke and spice with moderate to intense earth. Other aromas include moderate floral followed by mild vanilla with hints of caramel and fruit. The tequila has a thin mouth feel (for an Anejo) and on the first sip is sweet with no bitterness. Trago Anejo has intense flavors of caramel on the back end followed by moderate notes of agave, fruit, vanilla, and wood. With a long duration of flavor, tastes of mild floral and earth bring this tequila to a numbing finish. Trago Anejo has received the rating of 89 points out of 100.
