Casamigos Agave Azul Anejo Tequila 750ml
$114.99 price per bottle
As with the other Casamigos tequilas, the entry for the Casamigos Anejo is light and delicate with soft, sweet roasted agave combined with light white pepper. The midpalate adds toffee, chocolate, salt, and a touch of oak to the mix. As with the nose, the oak here is fairly restrained and it adds more of a tannic, drying quality to this tequila over spice. Towards the end of the midpalate the white pepper increases in intensity, but it never gets too spicy or aggressive. The white pepper spice drives the finish which is medium, light, and ends clean.
As with their other offerings, Casamigos has delivered an anejo which is very clearly best consumed neat or over ice. Casamigos Anejo is a light, delicate, and remarkably easy tequila. It has a nice balance of sweet and spicy and uses the oak to dry things out rather than amp up the spice. Our only gripe is that the finish is a touch too dry, but that's not enough to hamper the enjoyment of this tequila.
