From the makers of the $225,000 world’s most expensive tequila comes Tequila Ley Anejo. This is our first time sampling a tequila from the company and we decided to go straight for one of their top offerings. This is obviously not their “top” offering but our budget was a little under $225,000 so this will have to do for now.
This bottle instantly jumps into our top favorite designs, joining the ranks of Kah and Esperanto tequila. The overall design concept is a dragon theme, from the scales covering the bottle to the metal dragons tooth hanging around the neck. Tequila Ley comes in a box so you will have to look for their logo instead of the stunning bottle on the shelf. While the box does cover up the unique design, it makes a nice package if you were to gift it to someone.
According to their website, the tequila is aged 18 months in oak barrels. The aroma and initial flavors are mostly agave, vanilla with a mild wood presence. It’s a little light in the body which we believe contributed to an additional impression of smoothness. This anejo is easy to sip and a few friends that normally do not sip tequila found that it went down easy.
This tequila costs about $52.99 for a 750ml bottle which is only $224,947.01 cheaper than it’s rich uncle Ultra Premium Tequila Ley .925 Pasión Azteca. Since we haven’t won the lottery recently, this version is more in our price range and about what you would pay for similar quality tequilas.
Because of it’s overall appeal to all that tried this tequila, we recommend this anejo. The packaging makes it great for a gift or just a unique piece to sit in your bar. If you have tried Tequila Ley, we would like to hear about it in the comments below. If you have a bottle of their ultra premium and would like to share, please email us.
