Just reviewed this as my #tequilaoftheweek number 45 on @the_tequila_wanderer IG page. Can’t say enough good things about this. I obviously enjoy everything coming out of el Pandillo and this Anejo is no exception. Light oak and caramel on the profile, plenty of cooked blue agave notes and light pepper on the back end of the profile. Highly recommend

Bottle#771 Nose: Fruity agave leaps out at you on first whiff, with just the faintest trace of bourbon oak. There are incredible spice and fruit notes: dark berries, ripe Rainier cherries, vanilla, citrus, white pepper and cedar shavings. Minerals and earth in the background. Flavor: Jerk seasonings, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, red pepper flakes, salted caramel, almonds and leather in an oily, mouth coating experience. This is thick and creamy and kissed with honey. The 55 months in the barrel has in no way obscured the rich agave that was clearly meant to be showcased. Pretty close to perfection.

Aroma : Cooked agave, oak, black pepper, caramel and some light fruit. Taste : Cooked agave still comes through after 5 years in barrel. I also get some black pepper, oak, butterscotch and leather, and the texture is full and oily. Finish : Long with more agave and some light alcohol heat. FINALLY got a bottle of this after looking for so long. This a wonderful agave forward XA. Priced a bit high, but if you're a G4 fan it's worth it.

In the glass, very light yellow tinted and with nice long tears much like the blanco. In the nose there’s loads of agave, some minerals, rain, oak, vanilla, citrus (grapefruit maybe?) On the palate this picks right up where the blanco left off but somehow accentuates the good parts even further - cooked agave, pepper, butter, citrus, and oak. It’s got a long beautiful finish with notes of vanilla and a sweet burn at the very end. Definitely one of my favorites!

In the glass it’s perfectly clear and clean with tears that definitely linger. The expected mouthfeel is something to look forward to. On the nose it’s agave front and center. Fresh rain and minerals are also there, waiting patiently. The palate is again cooked agave dominant with minerals, black pepper, and grass complimenting nicely. Great mouthfeel as expected. It’s got a long finishing heat with a lingering vegetal component that is not unwelcome. Definitely a regular in my home collection!
