Pale golden green color. Attractive aromas of aloe vera, sweet orchard fruit, vanilla nougat, and singing minerality with a slightly chewy, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, intricate, very long citrus peels, earthy tomato and sage, dried white flowers, and sweet vanilla caramel with roasted sesame finish. Sip this añejo tequila neat or on the rocks and enjoy lush aromas and rich flavor with an outstanding, traveling finish.

Añejo ("old") Tequila is aged in wooden barrels (usually old Bourbon barrels) for a minimum of 12 months. The best-quality anejos are aged 18 months to three years for mixtos, and up to four years for 100% agaves. Aging Tequila for more than four years is a matter of controversy. Most Tequila producers oppose doing so because they feel that "excessive" oak aging will overwhelm the distinctive earthy and vegetal agave flavor notes.
