Nose: Initially I was hit with French oak and some lumberyard oak aromas. Given a little breathing time, rich sweet notes emerged: butterscotch, dark chocolate, vanilla, cafe con leche, and the slightest hint of maple. Herbal/earthy root cellar aromas, thyme and green pepper mingle with spicier notes of finely ground white pepper, orange rind, nutmeg, cloves and powdered ginger. A pleasing marriage of scents. Flavor: Spicy zing enveloped in sweet, buttery, agave richness. Caramel, toffee and almond paste. Lots of facets... Finish lingers.

Aroma : Vanilla, caramel, and light cinnamon. There is also some oak, orange, and butter. Taste : Lots of oak, along with some chocolate, toffee and berry fruitiness. Light butter and orange here as well. This is a good balance between sweet and spicy, while still letting you get the full complexity of each side. Finish : Long with stronger notes of vanilla, berry, and oak. There is a lot going on here. It's obvious there is a ton of complexity with this one to the extent that if someone told me this was an extra añejo, I'd probably believe them. Some may find the oak overpowering, but that's why you have to give tequilas like these time to open up, otherwise you'll miss out.

This is a barrel heavy influenced tequila that does it the right way. Caramel and baking spice notes are very present, but without losing the agave essence. It's a touch pricey, but also unique.

Hints of vanilla, sweet but not cloying. Nice, clean finish but not weak

This low score maybe the result of my high expectations. I found nothing extraordinary about this tequila . Disappointing .

Aroma: I get a strong note of coffee and berry. There is also a hint of caramel and oak. It's super complex. Every time I go back I get a different note. Flavor: For me this is pretty barrel heavy. I get a lot of oak with a subtle hint of chocolate. I was hoping for something more complex an in line with the aroma. Finish: The finish is pretty complex. It goes up and down and lingers for a while.

Light vanilla aroma and less barrel than the reposado. Sweet, fruity flavor and pleasant lingering finish. Great cold weather tequila (noted on 12-23-2012).

The Anejo starts starts with with a dark amber color and a nice agave, grass and alcohol aroma. On the pallet- cooked agave, light pepper, punky wood and again a slight alcohol flavor. Outstanding lasting flavor, ever so slight peppery velvet smooth finish.

Fantastic tequila! Well balanced aged aromas of cooked agave, wood & spices/ tobacco. Perfect for those seeking a tequila that has dry /scotch-like profile and not overly sweet but has a nice finish. Pairs well with a cigar.

I got this one as a Bday treat and wow ! What an exceptional anejo. I love what Enrique did with this and that it was NOT aged in whiskey/bourbon barrels from what I’ve read . A very unique tasting anejo with so many flavors to discover upon every sip. Such a nice price and presentation if you’re lucky enough to get the wood box ! LoL

Aroma: Apple, allspice, oak, dried fruit Taste: smokey apple with hints of caramel and roasted agave. Finish: little burn, dry. Oak notes. Tastes like a bourbon Add a few drops of water and it completely opens up

Rivals most, if not any Añejo or Extra Añejo that is even double the price in terms of barrel character, viscosity richness, and downright value. Although you will find a cornucopia of desert flavors and many other oak tannin nuances across the nose and palate, it doesn’t necessarily bring the round edges and a soft finish that you may seek. This is THE Bourbon drinker’s Tequila.

One of my favourite aged expressions particularly when introducing whiskey drinkers to Tequila thanks to its oak, caramel and vanilla signature flowing though from the barrels. And I really love their story that attempts to create some distance between great artisanal product and the billions spent in brand marketing to ‘buy’ the success of lesser quality agaves. The true Art of the Distiller (NOM) on show.

A cool idea for a brand and tequila from a great distillery. I had to give it a try.
