Anejo (meaning 'aged') receives a minimum of one years ageing, with luscious vanilla, creme caramel and oakiness combining with the original agave character. A maximum of 5 years ageing is generally the limit, beyond which the barrel influence tends to overwhelm the agave character.
A rare single barrel bottling of Ocho's Añejo tequila, bottled at an almost unheard of cask strength. This is about as close to drinking tequila straight from the wood, and is a great example of the brand's spirit focused style.
To celebrate the 70th Anniversary of Don Julio Tequila, they have produced this fantastic Añejo tequila. Their finest agave plants are hand selected for distillation. This tequila is then aged for 18 months in American White Oak barrels, and then filtered to a pure silver colour. The result is an Añejo Tequila with the smoothness of a blanco.
The Extra Anejo tequila from Ocho, made by the famed Camarena family who are also behind Tapatio and El Tesoro. It's aged for 3 years and a day using a mix of refill casks and new French oak to give a tasty and easy drinking tequila with a slab of woody complexity.
A European release of the increasingly legendary Don Julio 1942 tequila, named for the eponymous Don who passed away in 2012. A rich, old and chocolatey tequila with the trademark pepper notes backed up by loads of fruit. Impressive.
A super premium tequila from Arette, Unique Extra Anejo is aged for 6 years and is produced from specially selected agave hearts for a rich and full bodied spirit. Please note that this is a 35cl bottle
The 2012 release of Don Julio's 1942 tequila, an excellent extra anejo now made in honour of the eponymous Don who passed away in March of 2012. He leaves an incredible legacy of tequilas, including this pepper and chocolate laden pinnacle to the range.
A legendary special edition tequila bottled for the Millennium from the very oldest and greatest of Cuervo's vast stocks. With a depth of flavour, softness and complexity that is quite astounding for a tequila, this is a true connoisseur's treat.
A simply stunning 100% agave anejo from Carlos Camarena of the La Altena distillery. This Excelencia Gran Reserva Extra Anejo from Tapatio made shows incredible peppery agave character, with buttery grilled veg and a spicy kick. A simply stunning tequila, this is our own Tim F's all-time favourite.
A 100% agave tequila, as one would expect from the excellent Herradura, produced as the top of their range. It's made using their best agave plants, the oldest and most traditional parts of their distillery and matured for over 5 years to produce a tequila with a legendary reputation.
The old presentation of Don Julio 1942 is now extremely scarce. A phenomenal tequila, incredibly smooth and with a simply stunning texture and flavour. White pepper & white chocolate on the nose and palate - it sounds like it shouldn't work, but believe me it does. Awesome.
