90–95 pts.Wine Enthusiast: May, 2004
Concentrated, intense aromas include lead pencil, steamed asparagus and rubber eraser; another seven minutes sees the raw aroma transform into a bouquet that features scents of palm oil, jalapeño, oak resin and stone/graphite/mineral. Palate entry offers subtle, semisweet tastes of toffee and egg cream; by midpalate, the taste includes vanilla, cocoa, margarine, peppercorn and honey. Ends in sweet, creamy tastes that highlight the toffee.
F. Paul Pacult’s Spirit Journal: December 1, 2003
The engaging appearance is pale gold and unblemished; the opening inhalations find concentrated, intense aromas of lead pencil, steamed asparagus, and rubber eraser — aeration time of another seven minutes sees the raw aroma transform into a sensuous, toasty agave bouquet that features scents of palm oil, hot green pepper (jalapeno), oak, resin, and stone/granite/mineral. While I liked the bouquet, this tequila saves its best moment for the flavor phase as the palate entry offers subtle, semisweet tastes of toffee and egg cream — by mid-palate the taste profile includes vanilla, cocoa, margarine, peppercorn and honey; it ends in a flurry of sweet, creamy tastes that highlight the toffee, a prime example of how oak casks can heavily and positively influence agave spirit; Though reposado is usually my favorite tequila category, this beauty provides an extremely compelling case for anejo tequila.
