The Full Review
Añejos at this price point typically look artificially colored and taste overwhelmingly sweet. Neither is true of Gran Centenario’s offering. A period of 18 months in French Limousin oak barrels (best associated with Cognac production) lends an attractive hue, but the aromas of this tequila remain fruity and vegetal-forward. The palate is fiery (read: spice not booze) with just a hint of pleasant oaky sweetness.
