Aroma : Oak, some vanilla and caramel, trace amounts of agave and pepper. Taste : Lots of oak with a bit of underlying agave, cinnamon, and a little bit of the fruity, citrus notes I get with other expressions from Don Julio. Also some amount of honey on the palette, as well as caramel/vanilla and hazelnut. Finish : Fairly short with some predominating oak and black pepper, and some agave. This is a good Añejo, but it doesn't have enough character to speak of. The oak did too much to mask the agave and there were no new flavors that replaced it, so something seemed missing.

Sweet, oaky, caramel and vanilla. Seems to be served just about everywhere. Served neat it’ll do the job.

Take this with a rain of salt because I really don’t like most Anejo’s, this one is not my jam. Nutty flavour reminds me of sherry, I can’t pick out much agave and the last sensation is a bitter note.

Somewhat older bottle, 2009 SAT tax stamp, 38% Mexican version. Nose: Barrel spices and ripe fruit. Some caramel. Palate: Nice mouth feel. Spices, pepper, nuttiness and subtle oak. Balanced finish with a marriage of pepper and sweetness.

The aging in this mini sample from the same time frame as the blanco shows none of the yeast influence of the blanco distillate. Oak and spice dominate here and the glass displays some thin, fast legs after sipping. My palate has changed from when I first aquired these bottles and I now consider them just servicable.

Smooth barrel flavor, was a regular sipper when mixing last Los Skeletone Blues album 'Operation Avalon'.

Had to let this open up a bit due to the strength of the alcohol. From the body to the finish I get more wood than I like. Reminds me of cazadores anejo.

This is a sweet Anejo. Lots of vanilla with agave and wood. Smooth finish of caramel, oak and just enough spice.

Aroma of yeast and agave. Flavor of wood and spice is very tannic. Simple easy finish. This is a nice, middle of the road tequila. Easy to drink, nothing overpowering or overwhelming but also nothing really special.

A subtle but solid tequila. Rated blind. Straw/hay and toasted vanilla flavors. Not overly oaked, thankfully. Seems more like a Reposado. (A good thing.)

I'm more of a repo guy. Añejos feel like spicy bourbon to me. I like bourbon, but with my tequila, I want to taste the fruit, not the barrel.

Not as smooth as I expected when tasting next to others.

This is just ok for the price. Too much spice and not enough flavor. Just paying for the name brand, there are plenty other options in this price range that are better.

Aroma of caramel and agave. There is caramel, vanilla, cinnamon and agave in the flavor. The oak treatment is not overdone here, it seems just right. Nice enough finish. I understand why this tequila is so popular, it’s easy to sip and it’s satisfying. My only complaint would be that I wish there was a touch more agave in the aroma and flavor. That being said, I enjoyed it and will try it again.

Great combination. Sweet & spicy. Not the overwhelming sweetness in other añejos.

This Anejo is very good. Just discovered it about six months ago. It taste like Don Julio 1942 before they changed the bottle shape. I did a taste test between the two and this Anejo came out on top. All the same taste as 1942 , but a better finish. It is also less than half price of 1942. My wife and I love it.

This isn’t as smooth as the blanco, reposado , 1942 or real, but it’s ok. I taste a little oaki-ness. I smell a lot of alcohol and it has a strong alcohol finish.

A smooth, on the light side Anejo from a good producer. Available everywhere, would choose this over patron Anejo for the money

Very nice nose with sweet notes of vanilla and caramel. Flavor a bit more muted but did show some additional wood/earth and leather flavors. Decent finish with a little sweetness
