Mackenzie's Tasting Notes:
The nose is very complex, and not what you might expect from an anejo. Up front there is a noticeable green quality: Asparagus, spring mix, and fresh cut grass. Then the barrel and agave influences kick in with aromas of oak, clove, vanilla, white bread, and cooked agave.
The taste is more inline with what you'd expect from an aged tequila. Flavours of cooked agave, holiday spice, oak, and vanilla.
The finish is long and slightly sweet. For those tequila enthusiasts who enjoy the agave characteristic of blancos, but are looking to branch out into aged tequilas Tapatio Anejo is a great starting point.
