Añejo Tequila

Category: Añejo Tequila

Date Tasted:
Country: Mexico
Alcohol: 40%
Medium golden straw color. Aromas and flavors of vanilla and caramel, prosciutto wrapped cantaloupe, butterscotch dipped banana, and woodsy green tea with a round, vibrant, dryish medium body and a tingling, charming, medium-length finish revealing notes of caramel plantain chips, vanilla, candied melon, and incense. A really pleasant aged Añejo that delivers on all of the flavors that you expect for the category.

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.
