Review: Herradura Anejo Tequila

Posted by Arctic Wolf on May 14, 2018

The Herradura Tequila brand is owned by Brown-Froman. It is produced thirty miles from Guadalajara, in the state of Jalisco, in the town of Amatitan, at Brown – Forman Tequila Distillery Mexico, S. de R.L. de C.V. which is also referred to as Hacienda Herradura.  The agave spirit produced here uses agave cooked in traditional old stone ovens, and distilled on old copper pot stills.

The subject of this review, the Herradura Anejo is a true 100% Weber Blue agave tequila.According to the Brown-Forman website:

Herradura Añejo matures in the barrel for 25 months, which is more than double the 1-year age requirement for a tequila to be considered an Añejo by Mexico law. This aging gives it both a deep amber color and a complex, spicy taste. Herradura Añejo was introduced by Casa Herradura in 1962.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Herradura Anejo Tequila

“… Firm fruity agave gives the spirit a strong lowland character. Black pepper breaks through heating the palate, and then some light oak flavours of caramel and vanilla come through as well. The overall flavour is more balanced than either the Silver or the Reposado was. Although fruity agave dominates, the oak and the characteristic tequila spice play a strong role as well. I find that when I sip the spirit over ice, the tequila is quite pleasing with additional flavours of raisin, chocolate and perhaps even a touch of walnut appearing …”

Please enjoy my review which concluded with my recommended cocktail, the Tequila Anejo Old Fashioned.

Chimo!

    Any idea when we might be able to buy Ultra in Canada? It’s the tipple if choice and it is a lot of trouble to procure. Clear Anejo

    • I have asked Brown Forman about the Ultra, but have not received any reply as yet. Luckily for me a buddy brought up a bottle he bought in Mexico so I have added it to my review list. Much softer flavour than the rest of the Herradura line-up.
