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.
A bit bourbony...
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.
For an añejo it’s pretty light in color and the barrel doesn’t over power. Ton of cooked agave and the tequila isn’t changed as much by the barrel as many añejos that pick up the oak and vanilla from bourbon casks. The aroma is more enjoyable than the taste for me. Great value though and would recommend for an añejo that still packs an agave punch. I prefer a little more of the barrel flavor so excited to try their extra añejo.
Cooked Agave and muted honey aroma. slight cactus flower hint as well. Light agave with a little pepper ash on the pallet. Very light pepper on the finish that leaves a little warmth on the tongue that remains longer than the taste on the finish. Easy sipper. Pleasant and would rebuy and would recommend.
2007 Añejo Nose: Honey, maple, caramel, oak, cherry, wood/oak, cinnamon, and chocolate. The nose is more enjoyable than the palate for sure. Palate: Vanilla, alcohol, oak, hint of agave and pepper with a light mouthfeel Finish: Light black pepper with the flavors rapidly fainting
Spicy, strong alcohol flavor
38% ABV De color muy claro en comparación a la mayoría de añejos, cuerpo muy aceitoso. Caramelo, mantequilla, canela y un poco de agave en la nariz. Sensación cremosa al paladar, sabor a madera y agave con algo de especias. El remate es algo astringente. Very light color in comparison with other añejos. Very oily body. Caramel, butter, cinnamon and a bit of agave on the nose. Has a very creamy sensation on the palate, wooden taste with agave and barrel spice. The finish is a bit astringent.
Really enjoyed this anejo. Flavor was solid with less barrel flavor, which I like. Really nice finish. Excellent.
Darker smell. Nice smooth taste on pallet. Good after finish. Similar to Repo. Nice after taste. Like! :)
Appearance: very light straw-colored yellow, just slightly darker than the repo. Nose: agave, light pepper, some mellow spice notes Taste: very light, agave still present with some baking spices and pepper, though very mild on the pepper. Not a very long finish, but very pleasant. I think the barrel just mellowed out the agave without overpowering it Overall: fantastic expression, priced very nicely. Agave forward, not overly oaky compared to other Anejo expressions. Highly recommend it.
Nose: Cooked agave, light oak, vanilla, caramel, baking spices. Palate: Lots of cooked agave still coming through. A nice agave forward anejo with hints of baking spices, vanilla, and caramel.
Incredible value! A must have.
Aroma is kind of peaty and peppery? Sweet taste but a bold finish.
Very light. Subtle nose. Balanced flavor. Exceptionally smooth. Agave. Some oak. Caramel in the background. Finish is firm. pepper. some cinnamon. Nose is just ok but taste and finish really stand out…loving this even more as the weather gets warmer. Got another bottle to break out this Summer.
nose citrus wildflowers honey alcohol taste flowery citrus honey-spice herbal mineral delicious warm finish edit after enjoying second bottle I realize the need to adjust the rating: delicious delicate anejo
Aroma: amazing. Lots of oak, what you would expect from a great Añejo. Compared to the G4 añejo I sampled and reviewed yesterday, this has a stronger agave smell and I get some sweet caramel, and vanilla, but the agave is the most prominent aroma. Palate: less complex then aroma, but still amazing. Agave, black pepper, and sweet caramel and vanilla. Much more spice to the palate. The finish is smooth, but shorter then other high end Añejos. Value: star of the show. 9/10.

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