Appearance: medium gold with red highlights. Medium tears.
Aroma: caramel, vanilla, orange, brown spices (cinnamon, clove?)
Initial taste: soft, satiny, and sweet, building to a medium heat.
Finish: warm, sweet, dominated by vanilla, ending in a woody sharpness. Long.
Overall, this is a very fine super anejo. I cannot justify the price, however, when compared to top flight anejos like Riazul. But, if you want to spend the money, it's darn good, and a nice change from the usual.
Herradura Seleccion Suprema Anejo NOM 1119 Tasted on 6/15/07 at 7:00pm. I tried this tequila at Zocalo in Sacramento and tasted it in a Riedel glass. This bottle has a unique design and comes with a wooden box. With a golden amber brown color, this tequila has intense aromas of vanilla and floral. Other aromas include moderate fruit and caramel with mild earth and spice. The tequila has a heavy mouth feel and on the first sip is sweet and syrupy with a hint of bitterness. Herradura Seleccion Suprema Anejo has numerous arrays of flavors due to its 49 months of aging. However, I thought this tequila was somewhat overpowering. Intense flavors of caramel, floral, and vanilla are followed by moderate to intense agave. Moderate notes include earth and wood. With a long duration of flavor, tastes of mild fruit and hints of spice bring this tequila to a numbing finish. Herradura Seleccion Suprema Anejo has received the rating of 94 points out of 100.

Oh yhea los Altos are up there too..So I highly recomend people that want to taste tequila that is smooth has a good taste, and where tequila was originaly discover try herradura brand tequila and especially gran suprema.. my favorite
I think this is the best tequila I've ever tasted. Beautiful dark color; agave aroma and flavor not strong; very very smooth; I taste carmel and vanilla and the oak; great, long finish. Superb. I'm not sure I would pay $400-500 for a bottle of any kind of liquor, but I definitely buy this when it can be found for $200-250.
