Deleon Anejo Tequila 750ml
Select highland Tequila is aged for over a year, first in American Oak and finally finished in French Oak wine casks for an indulgent profile as rich caramel, sweet oak and dried fruit combine for a delicate finish.
Classification: Tequila Añejo
Color: Dark amber
Aroma: Elegant notes of honeyed agave and baking spice
Taste: Entry of rich caramel balanced with a wisp of toasted oak underpinned by subtle dried fruit
Finish: Soft and silky with layers of toasted vanilla bean
We have tried over 100 different tequilas in the last 3 years. Some much more expensive and some cheaper. So far, this is the best we have tried for the money. We've had some really good $200 bottles and some terrible $200 bottles. The Deleon Anejo is the one we use to compare to others. Not many have beaten it for the $$$
Love the toasted oak flavor. Also, the dark color caramel amber look and flavor notes.
If you remember the Deleon Anejo that has been off the market for years you will be disappointed in this version. Not the same flavor profile as befor. Tried the "old" vs "new" side by side. New one is sweeteer,lighter colored,lighter body and not as complex as old. Over 3 years ago I paid $150 for old, so @$50 this is a good buy
