Found this at a little out of the way tequila shop in Cabo San Lucas. Paid $55 USD... which seemed a little steep, but tequila prices in Cabo seem to be inflated on everything..... when I realized the original price tage was 1800 pesos... or $90 USD, I felt a little better about my little find.... :) Like all of Ocho's other expressions, this anejo is VERY pale and influence of the barrel is kept to a bare minimum, which I absolutely love! In the glass, it looks more pale straw like a reposado. Further proof that the colour hasn't been enhanced or altered. Great legs....slightly oily mouthfeel... great substance for such a deceptively pale juice. Lots of agave on the nose, with hints of oak... there's a sweet but citrusy undertone that sets up the flavour profile to a tee.....roasted agave, pepper, citrus, green olives.... I generally prefer bright, clean agave-forward blancos, and normally get turned off of anejos with too much oak... but this anejo is well crafted and VERY tasty.... BUT, if you are a big fan of aged tequilas with lots of wood, vanilla, molasses, brown sugar- steer clear! You won't find it here. I am an unabashed fan of what Tomas Estes and Carlos Camarena are doing with Ochos. This was an awesome find and one more terroir to add to my growing list!

Pretty much as good as it gets for Anejo’s, tons of agave still present and the perfect amount of oak influence to round everything out. This is on the sweeter side but not in an offensive way, just makes it so easy to tip back more and more.

Quixote says: “do you want to comment?” What the heck? That is our obligation to tequila! Which means, Quixote wasn’t terribly impressed with 2013 tequila Ocho anejo. And to be honest, I happily pulled the score up a bit. Quixote is not a fan of the more reposado traits of ocho anejo. Legitimate. I love his high bar, which is why tasting with Quixote is such a treat. So, we were mixed on this tequila. Rocinante thought this tequila was just as good as the one we tasted before it. From my standpoint, who can buy a 2013 Ocho these days? If you have it in your collection, great! You’ll like it a lot! But if you don’t, don’t spill any tears. Unless you like a really minerally agave flavor. Then, find Rocinante , who still has half a bottle in her bar.

Bottle # 2629 Very light color with long legs, aroma has hints of smoke,white pepper,picking up some sweet floral notes also. You can taste the white pepper with smoke and little bit of fennel. Nice long finish, over all a solid tequila.
