Nose: Very strong, agave-forward nose with floral, vanilla, and wood notes.
Initial taste: Surprisingly neutral and quite earthy.
Body: Semi-oily, though not as rich as you might expect for an extra anejo. Agave is ever present, with caramel and spice lingering against a wood background.
Finish: Floral and fruity with a wood fade.

Exquisitely smooth, though it drinks more like a younger spirit. All-in-all, quite delicious and a favorite of many.

Herencia Mexicana Extra Anejo NOM 1079 Tasted on 6/8/08 at 6:45pm. I tried this tequila at Zocalo in Sacramento and tasted it in a Riedel. With an amber brown color, this tequila has intense aromas of earth and cooked agave. The cooked agave on the nose of this tequila is exactly like being at the distillery and I have never experienced a tequila with this much cooked agave on the nose. Other aromas include moderate spice, mild caramel and floral notes, with hints of vanilla and fruit. The tequila has a medium to heavy mouth feel and on the first sip there is a low level of sweetness with no bitterness. Intense floral and earthy flavors with moderate to intense agave are followed by moderate caramel. Mild notes of fruit and spice are also present with hints of smoke, wood, and toasted butteriness. With a medium to long duration of flavor this tequila ends with a slightly numbing finish. Herencia Mexicana Extra Anejo has received the rating of 91 points out of 100.
