so, so butterscotchy and warm on the nose...all memories of young agave disappear. Hands down mine & the TequilaSnobs' favorite.

Bold, complex nose... Cherry, fruit and caramel. Some black pepper and tannins. Medium finish with some alcohol. Interesting, although not agave forward expression.

Smooth and delicious. More cognac than tequila, in that the agave doesn’t shine but the caramel does. Despite the 5 year oak aging, the oak doesn’t show up in the flavor. Aroma has a bit more alcohol than The Collaboration, but this is 1/10th the price. Excellent price point compared to the other anejos from AsomBroso, especially with the deals offered direct from AB.

I gave this spirit very high ratings for flavor, aroma, finish... I truly love it... If you're an fan of Blanco Tequilas with lots of agave flavor, this one will very likely not satisfy you, the taste of this spirit is far away from being the typical tequila flavor profile..and I mean this in a good way... It's imho light-years better than the more known DJ1942 or JC reserva de la Familia... I do love it...

I didn't like this at first but several samples over the last few weeks have changed my mind. Vanilla, raisin, cinnamon and some oak have started coming to the forefront. It's growing on me

The nose on this tequila is amazing. tastes of caramels and dark chocolate. all is not perfect however. The Spirit looses points in finish however. there is slightly too much alcohol burn in the mouth and the price paid for this is not equal to the finish expected.

One of the most flavorful Tequila's I've ever had. Smooth with a buttery texture. Great chilled and the flavors blossom as it transitions to room temperature.

Interesting as many NOM1146 older expressions are. Vibrant barrel spice and a looong finish make this XA an interesting if expensive bottle from the brand owners and Señor Fonseca.

Review #120 - AsomBroso Tequila Anejo (5 year)

What an amazing tequila...and a really odd bottle. It's difficult to convince people that it's a premium one before they've tried it...strictly because it's being poured out of something that looks like you bought it an adult novelties store.
