NOM 1173 | Yes it has additives and tastes artificial. However for the money it’s not that bad, I could think of many others that would be worse.

NOM 1173 Some flavors of caramel and oak, but otherwise overpowered by artificial sweetness. Taste and texture seems very thin and watery, and the finish is short and sweet. That is: short, and sweet like cotton candy. Stay away.

NOM 1173 | This is awful. Thick, syrupy, glycerin manipulated for mouthfeel. Sweet on the palate with a fake cinnamon presence makes this a solid disappointment. Not sure the point of contracting with Santa Lucia to produce this... well to make money for both obviously but as a spirit? No. The previous añejos though not world changers were at least decent, subjectively natural products. This is not that and in fact is more in line with the whole current bullshit in tequila, skirting the rules and changing what a whole generation thinks tequila even is. It IS $20 for a liter, which is cheaper than sustainability, even for Costco.

Is there anything Kirkland doesn’t do well? Loads of agave from start to finish, that’s not the norm for Anejo’s and a nice surprise. Heavy oak on the back end that reminds me of a port or dessert wine, not something to begin the evening with.

Strong up-front notes of cooked agave and celery. Black pepper, burnt sugar and bourbon finish. Strong butter on the nose. Nice juice for $20.

NOM 1472 | This rating is for the old bottlings from NOM1472 in the taller square bottle. A pretty good añejo for the price of 20-22 bucks for a liter. My bourbon drinking friends like to drink this as do I for the simple fact that it has a lot of bourbon elements going on. Oak, caramel, vanilla all combine to make reminders of the barrels used to age this spirit. Not really any agave which is probably the point. Scored down for that.

NOM 1472 | I'm not really sure what to do with this. It's a low-end añejo, but priced at a value. I wouldn't serve it as a sipper and I prefer blancos or certain repos for margaritas. My mom would mix it with Coke. I could drop it in a coffee or a mocha, or infuse it with espresso. I'm just getting too much astringent/antiseptic to want this añejo to be the primary flavor in my glass.

NOM 1173 | Good margarita tequila, there are many better sipping tequilas than this one.

This is a delicious tequila! I tried it when it first came out a few years ago, but was completely disappointed. This one is different, improved and amazing. The fragrance of vanilla & brown sugar hits you first. along with some minor alcohol scent. Although 100% agave, the agave is not the strongest player here. Upon sipping, the maple taste shines through, in a warm, smooth, buttery flavor, maybe with a hint of tobacco. It is FANTASTIC. My only hope is that they lower the price, I know it's not that much but on my budget it is for $30 per 750ml. Definitely a sipping tequila, but I'd wager it makes the best margaritas in the world. This and the Kirkland Silver Tequila are my all-time favorites, and sipping straight tequila is my go-to alcoholic beverage. Neither has ever given me even a hint of a hangover. Truly the nectar of the gods. Cheers!

Nose is oaky, earthy, and slightly sweet. Initial flavor is fruity, followed by strong notes of oak and earthiness, with a slightly sweet finish. It's neither exquisite nor offensive, and frankly for the price it's unbeatable.

Don’t let the brand fool or sway you. If you’re just getting into Tequila I highly recommend it. Good vanilla and caramel aroma and the price is awesome.

NOM 1173 | Good value. Can give me a slight headache, which is unusual for tequila and me. Good aroma. Very vanilla. Good price point, but if Costco has the Gran Centenario, I think that one is better.

NOM 1173 | Let me begin that for $21, this anjeo is much better than a lot of $75 tequilas in a smaller bottle. Aroma is almost bourbon like. Taste is smooth. Lots of vanilla, and cooked agave. I did the sticky taste and it passed. I’m not 100% convinced it’s additive free, but the price point places this tequila higher than most in my opinion.

Kirkland Signature Anejo Tequila from Costco - you get what you pay for

Even more exciting is the price: a 1 liter bottle will only set you back $23.99. What a steal!
