On the nose, Oak and caramel, masking cooked agave underneath. Some pepper. Whiskey. A touch of vanilla and apple. Fruity. Some citrus. Not bad. On the palate, Sweet agave, and something almost like apple juice. Caramel and vanilla, light whiskey notes. Really not bad, I can’t find any flaws. It’s not mind blowing, but it is pretty solid. I hear there’s diffuser juice mixed in, and that may be the case, but this is just a really easy drinking, clean and perfectly fine tequila. I can see the appeal. It’s got no heat, some tasty flavors, perfect for sipping or shooting, if you’re into that. I may be a little contrarian here, but I think it’s got a place. If you’re gonna drink a super commercial Cuervo product, this would be the one I’d suggest. I think it lacks that distinct diffuser chemical funk.

This is a vintage Green Label Gran Centenario añejo, from back in the day...Not what you will find on store shelves today. Nose: Ripe red, jammy fruit. A warm vanilla and baking spice blend. Some orange zest. A little “snap” to the nose. Rich and fruity round oak aromas. The oak notes creep up in magnitude as it opens up. Flavors: Oily, spicy, peppery. A Cointreau note. Dark ripe cherries. Vanilla, nutmeg and leather. It’s like an opulent dessert with kick. Finishing impressions: Not crazy complex, but has a pleasing warm, comfortable style.

Average Anejo, whiskey like on the palate. Light in style. Prefer the repo from this producer for the money.

Gotta say I like this tequila, great use of oak and blending to achieve a good balance. This product could be an easy stand in for bourbon when recruiting new agave lovers.

Sooooo much better and different than the current blue label. Nice crisp aromas of citrus , agave and vanilla/caramel. Those carry over into the flavors with a bit of alcohol and chocolate. Nice lingering finish with little burn compared to current version. This is actually the juice that got us started on this awesome agave journey. Getting harder to find but still some bottles out there for around 60 bucks or so, even from collectors. Great "old school" juice IMHO.

From a 3L green label bottle @ 38% ABV. This is very nice with a spicy finish. Cooked agave and barrel spice (caramel, cinnamon or clove and vanilla) on the nose. Nice mouthfeel but not oily or viscous. Some alcohol numbing even at the lower proof. Good long finish. Proves that Cuervo can make good tequila when they want to.

Carmel, vanilla, aged longer Than most anejos. whiskey like taste. not as sweet as many anejos.

This is more of an old school/purist style of tequila than it is a modern/sweet anejo. Instead of being heavy on the sweet caramel or vanilla flavors it has more pepper and agave but not so strong that it isn’t smooth or undrinkable. It’s a very good anejo at a great price.

TMM says otherwise but this smells like straight diffuser juice to me. The gross, grassy, musty notes mostly overpower the nose but there’s a bit of (fake?) caramel sweetness underneath them. The palate is flat, thin, peppery, and dominated by alcohol. It has a bitter aftertaste that makes me think additives are involved. I almost never go this low on my ratings but this was just dreadful. I’m glad I only bought a small 200mL bottle but I still feel robbed. Please just buy Espolon or Arette instead of this, they both blow it out of the water for less money.

Nom 1122. Costco had it for $27. Amazing price for what you get. Good aroma, good taste. Slight alcohol burn, but not bad. I’m impressed for the price. Whiskey like flavor of vanilla and oak, but nice tequila aftertaste.

Wood, vanilla, butterscotch. Very whiskey-ish. Sampled this from a 200ml bottle. Only $5.99. Score rated higher for pricing.

Good Anejo for the price point. Would recommend it as a budget sipper.

The nose made me excited and curious. She taste like she smells, and that’s where this bottle takes a hit from me. Enticing scent but overbearing a bit on my taste buds. Stylish ass bottle though.

Nice product with notes of oak agave and vanilla on the nose with a little butter on the tongue. A great product for the price for sure!

Smells sweet and earthy/woody with a touch of caramel smoothness. Flavor was surprisingly smooth with a rich vanilla and buttery caramel sweetness resembling many bourbons. There was an interesting and soft wood taste, that I personally haven’t found in a tequila, that was delightful and matched perfectly with the smooth rich sweetness. The finish was smooth enough, though left a desire for less burn after the rich taste I had just experienced. Overall a very good sipping tequila and an unmatched bargain at its less than $30 price point.

Oak, vanilla and faint citrus on the nose. Oak, vanilla and citrus flavors. Well balanced with an oily mouthfeel. Mild peppery finish. I’d keep a bottle around.

Vanilla on the nose. More noticeable in the flavour. Slightly sweet, carmel flavour and smell. Oak as well. Finish is not very smooth, heavy alcohol. Love the Depression-era ribbed glass bottle - classic.

It feels as if a good amount of the aroma and flavors have been removed. It lacks enough character, but at the same time it doesn't have anything wrong with it. It's not too smooth or too hard. Could be good for sipping, wouldn't recommend shooting.
