Golden amber color. Aromas and flavors of chocolate espresso bean, caramel chocolate coconut dream bar, olive brine, and chili pepper in chicory coffee with a satiny, bright, sweet medium-to-full body and a swift finish imparting accents of vanilla-caramel sauce drizzled pancakes, and cola float. A curiously confected Añejo for shooting.

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.
