Pale amber color. Attractive, creamy, oaky aromas of caramelized tropical fruit, butterscotch and leather, mint and oregano, and toasted marshmallow with a thick, lively, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, intricate, long creamy cashew butter, steak seasoning, salted grapefruit peel, and roobois tea finish. An oak forward tequila to sip and ponder.

Anejo Tequila

Añejo ("old") Tequila is aged in wooden barrels (usually old Bourbon barrels) for a minimum of 12 months. The best-quality añejos are aged 18 months to three years Beyond three years they can be called extra añejo.

Aging takes place in barrels formerly used to mature bourbon and rarely Cognac. Those aged in the latter vessels have more of a mellow edge, with aromas ranging from vanilla to tobacco, while those aged in former bourbon barrels often have notes of dill and coconut from the American oak. Añejo tequilas should be sipped neat, after dinner in a copita or snifter and perhaps enjoyed with a cigar.
