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.

A classic, you can’t go wrong with Don Julio. The nose picks up oak, agave and toasted vanilla that are present in the body and finish.

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.

yummy, one of my favorite anjeos. Costs around $65 so a bit pricey but worth it for a special occasion. I like the Espolon repo almost as much. Great agave, caramel, oak flavor. very smooth and easy to drink. great sipper straight up.

It kind of burned the nose, a little hard to identify what I was smelling. But it was so smooth, it glided across the tongue. I think personally I have to get better at identifying what each individual flavor / aroma I’m looking for is like.

Little to no aroma. Traditional tequila flavor that is bold but slightly watery. Flavor is not memorable good or bad as there are no notes in particular that stand out. However, the flavor doesn’t present anything to complain about; it’s very middle of the road and unassuming. Mild spicy aftertaste.
