Añejo Tequila

Category: Añejo Tequila

Date Tasted:
Country: Mexico
Alcohol: 40%
Medium gold color. Oaky aromas of cedar box, vanilla black tea, mandarin orange flesh and rhubarb, and coconut and english leather with a glycerous, crisp, fruity full body and a peppery, nuanced, medium-long caramelized papaya, galangal, eucalyptus, and lime leaf finish. A very full-bodied tequila to sip neat or on the rocks with a cigar.

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.
