Released in 2014 to celebrate Don Julio's 70th anniversary, unusually this 100% agave añejo (highland grown agave from the Los Altos region of Jalisco) is crystal clear having been filtered to remove the colour that would normally be present after 18 months maturation in American white oak barrels.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 20/09/2014

Appearance

Crystal clear.

Aroma

Wet cement, green olive, chocolaty roasted agave and white pepper with faint vanilla and pineapple.

Taste

Initial light sweetness, clean with light peppery spice, caramel, milk chocolate, toasted coconut and almond.

Aftertaste

Clean with elegant black pepper spice and faint chocolate and toasted coconut. Overall: Clean and peppery with coconut and chocolate. I’d use in place of a blanco rather than treat as añejo. Great with dark chocolate.
