El Tequileno Anejo Gran Reserva Tequila (750ml)
Released January 2021, the nose of this aged expression is more restrained by oak than the Platinum Blanco or Reposado, but exhibits more elegance plus added layers of fruit bread and vanilla intermingling with white pepper, sappy agave and menthol tobacco. Silky yet peppery, the palate has an appealing grassy / roasted herb / agave character with hints of vanilla and brine entering through the chalky finish. 40% Alc./Vol.
Other reviews... This Tequila has a golden and bright appearance and buttery, toasty aromas. The palate opens lightly sweet, suggesting honey-roasted nuts and a gentle honeysuckle note into a brisk, drying finish laced with black pepper. Created in collaboration with winemaker Randy Ullom, this is a blend of a two-year old añejo and six-year-old extra añejo. 93 points - Kara Newman, wineenthusiast.com
