Many credit Herradura for kick starting the ‘añejo’ category when this product was launched in 1962. This 100% agave tequila is aged 24-25 months in ex-American whiskey casks, double the mandatory one-year period set for añejo tequilas.

Review and Tasting


Sampled before 1st May 2011

Appearance:

Clear, amber.

Aroma:

A nose of stewed vegetables, sweet banana, oiled leather, vanilla, caramel with oaky, nutty notes, olives in brine and subtle fruit maraschino cherry.

Taste:

Perfectly balanced palate. Vanilla rich oak, caramel, cinnamon spice, banana cake and dried fruit.

Aftertaste:

Generously spiced finish retains fruity, vanilla notes with the merest dusting of freshly ground black pepper.
