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.
Cuervo's super-aged ne-plus-ultra 1800 Colección comes with its own fabulous pewter-framed decanter decorated by a local artist, with a different design for each year. A truly beautiful bottling and a hugely sought-after collector's item - this is the 2008 edition.
