Tequila AñejoDistilled from 100% blue Weber agave, it is aged for at least a year in barrels not to exceed 600 liters. Any type of wood is acceptable, but ex-bourbon barrels are most common. Añejo tequilas are also known as "aged" or "extra aged".

"The aging in American oak comes through on the nose with a mix of milk chocolate, cinnamon, and vanilla notes. The underlying vegetal agave notes do peek through so that it isn't completely overwhelmed. Moving on to tasting, the tequila is of average weight with the more vegetal and herbal notes from the tequila taking over which is a good thing. The finish is on the spicy and dry side with the aftertaste more bitter than sweet. A solid cristalino offering."
