Review: Don Julio Añejo Tequila

Posted by Arctic Wolf on April 9, 2018

Tequila Añejo Old Fashioned

Don Julio is a 100% Blue Weber Agave Tequila made from agave grown in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. As a highland tequila,we can expect the Don Julio to exhibit strong fruity citrus notes and to have a little hot pepper in the finish. The company was established by Don Julio González, who apparently began to examine the prospect of making his own Tequila in 1942. He established his distillery called, La Primavera, (TEQUILA DON JULIO NOM 1449, DOT 163, LOCATION: Atotonilco, Jalisco) and spent nearly forty years refining his Tequila into the spirit which now bears his name.

Don Julio Añejo is produced in small batches, aged in American white-oak barrels for eighteen months.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Don Julio Añejo Tequila

“… The agave flavour is mellow accented by mild touches of white pepper, and the sweetness of light caramel. I taste a light oak presence and an underlying honey-like sweetness which is very appealing. There are some fruit flavours, in particular lime zest and apricot jam, and these flavours are melded very well into the agave, the light oak, and the caramel …”

Please enjoy my review which concludes with my cocktail suggestion, the Tequila Añejo Old Fashioned.
