AGING:

The Anejo is aged in American oak barrels for average of 18 months.

APPEARANCE:

Medium long, roasted, a touch smoky, but far more vegetal than anything else, rich in agave flavor.

AROMA:

The initial inhalations detect sturdy aromas of dill, pickle brine, salt, and green pepper; later sniffs encounter deeper, slightly toasted fragrances of black pepper, jalapeño, toasted almond, linseed oil, and dried dill; the main message is that agave is acutely present and not overshadowed by oak.

TASTE:

The entry flavor is delicately salty, a clear signature taste of roasted agave, and displays a silky texture that’s firm and compelling; midpalate flavor range includes paraffin, prickly pear juice, toasted almond, and a slight trace of wood resin/sap.

OVERALL:

The combination of core substance, satiny texture, high acidity, and a superb balance between oak treatment and agave presence make this one of the best anejos currently in the marketplace.
