|Spirits Type||Anejo Tequila|
anejo tequila is often employed as a whiskey substitute in drinks like a Tequila Old Fashioned or Tequila Manhattan. Anejo tequila's flavor profile goes even further than ordinary blanco or reposado tequila, with strong notes of caramel, oak, and toffee that still allow the sweet, peppery agave that is the backbone of tequila to shine through. As the tequila sits in a barrel, it cycles in and out of the wood, picking up color and flavor. That’s why aged tequilas are amber or golden, while blanco is clear.
