The first hit on the aroma is caramelized plum, with secondary notes of brown sugar and vanilla. The flavor follows through with the same notes of brown sugar combined with baking spices, which come through strong and identifiable at the end. The finish is a burst of anise blended with cinnamon sticks, and a port wine sweetness.

Story: Añejo expression of the ArteNOM line, made in the same distillery as Tears of Llorona, Cimarron, Fuenteseca and Don Fulano. Aroma: Lots of pepper, touch of mint, fruity. Caramel and agave, definitely very prominent whiskey notes. Banana, very light ethanol. Vanilla when I tip my glass just right. A little water brings out butterscotch near the end. Wow, this aroma is very complex. Palate: Instantly hit with sweet caramel and pepper. Cooked agave, and that whiskey note coming through. I’m getting only a faint hint of vanilla, but it’s there. Definitely fruity, though I can’t pinpoint a specific fruit. Verdict: Interesting, a tasty tequila, and one I would recommend trying. It won’t be a staple in my bar, but when I’m looking for something fruity and peppery, I’ll reach for this.

This is an absolutely fantastic anejo. In my top 2 or 3. It has it all.

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. Grapefruit zest and oranges. Lots of facets... Finish lingers.

lovely flavor very different for me. sweet without burn. I call this one the wine of tequilas like a Porto to me.

Balanced, not overly sweet. Agave and oak showing well together.

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.

Another 1146 gem. I Always keep one in my stash. ArteNom came out strong out of the gate w/ their 1079 release. This is Agave forward with notes of candied walnuts, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, yams, mocha, leather, with a hint of smoke. Kinda goes down like an XA. Damn solid stuff.

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.

You can really appreciate the wood on the nose. Smells like a good humidor; makes me want to grab a cigar. Unique flavor from the triple barrel aging. Detect something like Sherry. Very smooth.

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).

Color is darker what I’d expect for Anejo, overall reminds me Codigo Extra Anejo in many ways for 1/3 the price. And quite honestly I like arteNom more! Nose - smokey, sweet, fruity, agave, thick, complex. Flavor - complex and deep. Fantastic! Finish is extremely smooth. Overall, my best new discovery. Absolutely love it and worth every penny!

This is what anejo’s should be. Amazing sipper for a nightcap. Nose: cookedagave, dried fruit, sweet berry, spice brown sugar and caramel Taste: whiskey vibes(bourbon), cooked agave, leather, caramel, slight sweetness like a sherry, dried fruit. Great mouthfeel and incredibly smooth . Lingering flavors on the tongue. Wow. Such a complex expression, yet executed perfectly. I will always have a bottle of this at my bar. Beautiful

This is a “classy “ tequila. It should be sipped and enjoyed leisurely. The dark, rich color looks great in the glass and the nice legs upon a slow swirl add to the experience. The aroma begins with cooked agave and caramel. The flavor adds some butterscotch as you become aware of the barreling. Light oak at this stage. The finish is medium oily which creates a nice coating. There is still the agave and caramel but now a touch of citrus and cinnamon. I also get the pepper which gives some warmth. A correlation may be a nice whiskey/scotch that lends itself to good conversation between friends and perhaps a mild cigar.

It’s been about a decade since I’ve tasted this and realize it’s been too long. What a symphony of aromas and flavors. Check Kevin Suriano’s review below, it’s spot on!

ArteNOM 1146 Anjeo I'm with Lou Agave, this has it all. Total Wine for $80 bucks, feels like stealing candy from a baby. Let this one open up to maximize its nose and taste Nose: Luxurious without being overpowered. Cooked agave, caramel, cherries and nutmeg up front. Notes of whiskey, black pepper, cinnamon, and orange zest. Faint cocoa and leather. Beautiful. Taste: Buttery and dry with a nice trace of sweet and pepper spice. Balanced. Cooked agave, vanilla oak, cinnamon and nutmeg all over again. Retrohale bring out the cocoa and whiskey notes and the grapefruit zest and oranges that Remy Newland identifies. Finish: No need to rush. You can relax and really let the finish take over. Warm, rich and delicious. Masterful.

Out of NOM 1146 - Tears of Llorona has it's fingerprints all over this tequila - which is an amazing thing for additive free sub $100 Anejo. Take it all day long

Review #161 - ArteNOM Seleccion de #1146 Tequila Anejo

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