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.

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

Way overpriced to start with. Not the seminal tequila people say. nice balance in aroma and flavor. Harsh a bit into the sip and on the finish.

I get a decent amount of cooked agave on the nose along with oak, caramel, baking spices, vanilla, butter, and a touch of pepper. The barrel notes comprise most of the palate along with a nice touch of butterscotch, but there’s a lingering, unnatural sweetness on the finish that I’m not a fan of. I like this tequila, but the weird finish makes me think there’s additives involved. I still enjoy it and I don’t think it’s an additive “bomb” (compared to a brand like Casamigos), but I’m sure there’s still better añejos out there for the same price. Bonus point for the bottle design though - I think it’s awesome

Nose: Cooked agave, oak spice and black pepper. Palate: Hot and alcoholic. Slighlty creamy vanilla notes with black pepper. Finish: Peppery, alcoholic and very short.

Aroma: Sweet cooked agave, with hints of vanilla and oak. Taste: Slightly sweet with a light oak and vanilla flavor. Finish: Smooth and light on the finish, with a slight alcohol burn mixed with a pleasant sweet vanilla taste that dissipates quickly. Overall: Quite a good añejo tequila, especially for the price, I was surprised by how much I like it. That said, I do not know if the flavors are achieved through the use of additives. If there are any, they are very subtle and well done.

Good sipper. Always a default go to. Recommend it for people trying to learn tequila. Many bars stock this as an alternative to Patron and I like it much better.
