Aroma : Light cooked agave and oak with caramel and some vanilla, and barrel spice. Taste : Medium bodied and light oils with with the same light amount of agave and oak. Caramel and vanilla here, as well as some cinnamon. This is light and somewhat sweet in flavor. Finish: Medium length finish with stronger emphasis on caramel and cinnamon notes.

Not a huge departure from the repo, it’s still very soft and goes down without and fight. The extra time in barrel has improved and lengthened the finish, it’s my favourite part.

I’m drinking this not long after tasting the white label añejo version..... I realize this is going to be a tough act to follow. Nice round and balanced flavors. Great reverence is shown to the agave in the barrel aging. Nice. A great tequila but not the white label...

This was a Denton imports white label. It was exquisite. Too bad it is no longer available.

Nose - Alcohol and some smoke Taste - Light agave and barrel spice Finish - Short and sharp with alcohol numbing From a blind tasting

the aroma is clean and sweet, with light pepper, citrus and honey. front is nearly nonexistent, then after a few seconds she kicks in with white pepper, agave, and small herbs. the end is quicker than the beginning. easy slide from pepper and citrus with a little that lingers in the throat.

The aroma is interesting. I get butterscotch but also something slightly metallic. The flavor is super smooth and the aroma definitely comes through. The finish is nice and smooth. A good Anejo for the end of the night.

Caramelly aroma and taste- less earthy than the Mexico version but still nice.

Subtly sweet aroma of vanilla but agave still shows up. Nice that the agave shows up in the flavor as well and is not overwhelmed by the barrel. Long subtle finish is very nice.

A great anejo tequila, but not super exciting. Simple in a lot of ways but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Compared to Fortaleza anejo, all dials are a little turned down. Very smooth and easy to drink and no burn. Buttery finish.

The simplicity of this añejo just may be it’s strength. Nice aromas of agave, light oak, and enough caramel to not be overdone. Peppery bite reminds you why you prefer tequila to other spirits.

About $99 a bottle a little over priced for it. Not as complex as other tequilas

The aroma is sweet, the tequila is really smooth and packed with flavors. It’s a bargain for a premium añejo tequila.

Carmel, oak, baked agave in the aromas. Citrus, barrel spices, with a lemon cinnamon in the taste. Good complexity and good finish with some honey and a little dried fruit on the end. For an añejo, this is awesome.

Almost perfect. A little too much bitter sting immediately off the taste. Dies off quickly leaving a pleasant sweet agave barrel after taste.

very light on the nose..hints of citrus, wild flowers beautiful scents... on the palate there is a burst os flavors with very little heat. strangely enough i get lightly toasted pumpkin seeds, and sweet feta cheese... with earthy dirt like taste. nice viscosity in the mouth. toast and cinnamon apple butter. super complex. the longer it rest the spices begin to appear. like aged bourbon.. the more i sip the better it gets. if it wasn't that it is certified additive free, i would swear it has some syrup.. just became one of my faves. beautiful finish.

Review #102 - El Tesoro de Don Felipe Tequila Anejo

This is one of the first premium tequilas that I ever bought and sipped. It's a good solid tequila with no special tastes that make it unique.
