Copper color. Herbal aromas of fresh mint and freshly stained furniture with a velvety, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a breezy magnolia, honeyed wood, mesquite, and coconut cream finish. A creamy and delicate añejo for sipping and cigars.

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.
