Golden yellow color. Aromas and flavors of tinned pineapple, apple compote, vanilla, Maria cookies with cream cheese, and dried bell pepper with a satiny, bright, dryish medium body and a peppery, breezy hot peppers finish. A solid Añejo for cocktails and mixed drinks.

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.
