Nose: Agave, clear as day, rounded off with a little caramel/butterscotch sweetness. Touch of ethanol, though very light. Smells very naturally sweet. Palate: Cooked agave is front and center, surrounded by a soft caramel sweetness. A touch of oak/barrel spice, but it comes and goes for me. After sitting for a few minutes, I noticed a stronger spice in the final sip and a lot more buttery richness. Relatively light body. Definitely an easy sipping añejo, not overly complex but a solid example of quality. Paid $57.99 at Total Wine, absolute steal for a 1L of quality añejo.

Really nice añejo. Cooked agave comes through as you’d expect from a Tapatio product. I get lots of butterscotch, caramel and vanilla. A little bit of oak and just a touch of heat on the back end. Definitely light for an añejo but I tend to prefer that. Only recently been able to get my hands on Tapatio and it quickly becoming a favorite brand and the price point is unbeatable.

Aroma : Cooked agave still fairly strong on this for an Añejo. There is also some dried fruit and oak. Unique herbal / dark chocolate combo I haven't seen before. Taste : Agave is still very dominant here. There is also some notes of oak, orange, and some black peppery spiciness. This is medium bodied and fairly oily. Finish : Long and somewhat hot and spicy with agave sweetness and mild oakiness.

Another finely aged product from 1139 in Los Altos. The aroma is absolutely outstanding. Light in color with oak and dried fruit with dark chocolate on the nose while retaining the fruity and agave. Palate: agave, minerals, orange/citrus. Cherries, chocolate, caramel. Agave is actually still front and center on this aged juice.

It’s almost impossible to find Añejo tequila that retains its agave roots but this is definitely a perfect example. The oak supplies nice complimentary flavours but never steers you away from the core, this is great juice.

Light in color - heavy in aroma. Vibrant baked agave shines through, ripe berries, spices, a hint of pungency reminiscent of cheese, and a touch of earthiness. This tequila possesses one of the best aroma profiles, IMHO. Flavor: Spicy with black pepper and light oak. Agave is the star. Nice mouth feel. Long pleasing finish with a balance of heat and sweet. Mexican 38% version. Love this stuff!

Bottle dated 8/13/09. As always aging is on the lighter side color wise, though not in length as Tapatio añejo is usually almost 3 years old when bottled. Sweetness from agave complements the oak presence here and makes for an excellent sipper, the equal of any in the market regardless of price.

You may have to have a sip with dessert to really appreciate the sweetness on this one. Caramel, toffee are really pronounced. Had it with dulce de leche custard recently and the flavors were almost a direct match. All the tapatio brand are a great value compared to their competitors and this is no exception.

Aroma: Sweet Caramel, Butterscotch, Vanilla, Agave, and a little pepper. A strong oak presence. Flavor: Vanilla, Butterscotch, a little caramel and a decent amount of pepper. Finish: Very smooth finish but a quick finish. I wish it would hold on just a little bit longer. Overall: This is a very solid Anejo. It is very tough to beat at its price point. You could put this up against some other higher priced Anejo’s and this would hold its own. Tapatio Anejo is a great bottle to always have on hand.

Nice agave on the nose. Comes through beautifully with minor barrel notes. Palate is very easy to sip with not a lot going on.

I don't drink many Anejo, so the coloring was unexpectedly light, looking more like a reposado. Pricing is very favorable for my area. If my first two comments are coloring and price, then safe to say, not overwhelmed. It gers better, as I sit with it, a buttery mouth feel after resting the glass, maybe vanilla and definitely agave/pepper on the sip

Not normally an Anejo guy. But hey.... Damn solid. Like the rest of the brand. Tasty stuff indeed.

It’ll burn in the beginning with a lot of sweetness at the end

More like a reposado than an anejo. Vegetal and long lasting mint with touches of agave and vanilla showing through at times. Some flashes of vegetation, white pepper and cinnamon. The mint makes me wonder if this was aged in a high rye barrels but it isn’t as strong after the bottle is open for a couple of weeks. The finish sticks to my pallet for a long time. It’s a good experience but not what I’m really looking for in an anejo. I would buy this again.

Oak and agave then pepper before any caramel or vanilla. This is very light on the color, more like a reposado. Just ok for me, lacking flavor to bring me back. Surprised by the high reviews, not one of my favorites.
