Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - Intriguing aromas of citrus fruits, papaya, stone fruits with undertones of sweet spice and toffee. The flavors in the mouth offer a lot more vanilla and candied sweetness, with subtle spiciness lingering through to the finish. The texture is round and ultra smooth. (Apr 2014)
Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Butterscotch and almond toffee aromas are very bold before giving way to vanilla cream, ripe peach and a very faint trace of licorice and mint. In the mouth, rich vanilla and toffee flavors jump forth to mask a balanced mix of gentle smoke and salinity. The finish is slightly sweet and possesses an alluring smokiness.
This silky añejo reads more like Bourbon than Tequila, from the maple syrup color to the caramel-bomb flavor that echoes through and through. Only a faint peppery not whispers "Tequila.” Good value.

Añejo, which means "aged" in Spanish, is el Jimador's richest expression. Crafted from the finest 100% pure Tequilana Weber blue agave, this refined tequila is aged for 12 months in toasted white oak barrels and emerges with an extraordinary amber color. But color is just part of the story. el Jimador Añejo also follows the traditional aging process to deliver plenty of flavor: vanilla and oak, balanced with subtle cues of cinnamon & caramel. The result is a tequila you truly have to taste to believe.
