Hearing a lot about Hermosa Tequila, I purchased a bottle of the Hermosa Añejo Tequila and again decided to add a review. I am a huge fan of reposado, but there is many times you want a longer finish that añejo tequila presents. I pulled out my fancy tequila glasses and opened the bottle, the aroma was incredible. I poured a few ounces in a glass and found the aroma growing wood, spice, vanilla… I swirled it and found long legs that slowly dripped down the side of the glass. I could wait no longer and took a few sips and was impressed with the balance of spice, wood and sweet. I know the 1414 NOM distillery and know they make some amazing blanco and silver tequilas, yet this añejo is right up there with the top añejo tequila brands I have tasted. The finish is sweet yet leaves your mouth salivating wanting more, it truly is a beautifully made tequila. This is at the top of my favorites in the añejo category and for under $60 retail it is well worth the money, very smooth, with a long finish 10/10.
