Añejo Tequila

Category: Añejo Tequila

Date Tasted:
Country: Mexico
Alcohol: 40%
Brilliant gold color. Oaky aromas and flavors of straw, banana chips, pear sorbet with honey, caramel, praline, and toffee with a satiny, bright, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, medium-length finish that shows shades of limestone, dried pineapple, and buttercream frosting finish. A whiskey-like añejo that will appeal to highland scotch drinkers.

Anejo Tequila

Serve in a Copita
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.
