Rey Sol 6 Year Extra Anejo Tequila 750ml 40% alc
Comes in a crystal decanter with a display box.
It has an intense amber bright color with orange intense copper highlights.
The aroma is of oak, chocolate, vanilla, hazelnut, roasted almonds, and dried fruit.
The first taste is sweet with dominant oak notes. Then, it leaves a long lasting flavor of chocolate and almond.
To be served in a Riedel glass for fine dining. Pair it with red meats and as a great accompaniment to be enjoyed with dessert and coffee.
A truly exquisite Extra Anejo! Incredibly complex with layer after layer of flavor without losing the agave character. It isn't agave forward, but it is definitely there taking part in the symphony. A stunningly good XA.
The issue that I had with this tequila, and I tried it a few times thinking it was me is that it leaves a strange caramel/sugary after taste towards the back of your throat.
Bought this on the recommendation of a friend, who absolutely loved it. Bought him a bottle too as a gift, he's thrilled. I'd certainly pay $75 to $100 for this but $200 does not match the quality of the tequila. The packaging presentation is beautiful and graces a shelf with the open box. As to the tequila, It is very tasty and sits well but nothing really special for me. Very smooth with nice notes of caramel and vanilla.
We have 30 amazing tequila's mostly Anejo or Extra Anejo, ranging from 40/btl to 500 per btl. This ~ 250.00 bottle does not drink as nicely as (an example), Asom Brusso Extra anejo at 100/btl or Avion 44 at 125/btl or diablito.... A nice bottle but worth ~ 70-80/btl
Treat yourself at least once in your life , this is the best tequila I have experienced in my tequila drinking time , just the right amount of fruit and sweet with a touch of burn so you know you are drinking a very fine tequila . Highly recommend .
This tequila is not bad. Not my favorite and certainly not worth the price tag but a decent, smooth extra añejo.
