Proof66 Notes

Cazadores anejo tequila is aged "for at least" one year in American white oak barrels imparting both color and flavor. They call it "Your palate's greatest dream come true."

Cazadores tequila is made in the tradition of founder Jose Maria who first began making tequila in 1922 in secret. Descendants built a distillery and began marketing in earnest in 1973. The name "cazadores" translates as "hunters" with an image of the stag on the botte. The tequila is made using 100% agave and they say that the fermenting is done to the sounds of 24hr classical music (see the write-up at the Luxist for confirmation of Mozart improving the tequila). The brand was acquired by Bacardi in 2002.

If you like a sweet tequila this ones for you. I don't . I know an anejo tequila comes with plenty of vanilla and sweetness but this is a bit over done. Almost loses all of the spicy qualities that make tequila standout. Almost like a whiskey that is long aged with no characteristics. Not harsh or offensive. Jus too sweet and too plain.

This tequila has almost no agave presence, and all you can taste/smell is wood and vanilla then has a finish like a REALLY light bourbon. This is the most dissapointing out of 3 cazadores and one of the more dissapointing tequilas i have tried. When i drink a tequila, i want it to taste like a tequila, not some smooth juice that is overpowered by oak. If you want a overoaked, cheap Anejo, i'd rather go for the 1800.

I thought the product tasted very clean consumed neat. Not too fiery. Fairly complex sipper had me contemplating the flavor.
