One of the oldest distilleries in Mexico, Casa Siete Leguas has more than fifty years of experience in the making of tequila by means of a traditional process delivering full-bodied, high-quality spirits of refined flavor. Don Ignacio González Vargas named his tequila company after Pancho Villa's horse Siete Leguas (7 leagues). Thus, in 1952, Tequila 7 Leguas was born.
This anejo, aged for 18 months, has a weighty and smooth mouth feel with flavors of vanilla, burnt caramel, golden apple, pineapple and floral accents. The earthy, roasted agave flavor carries splendidly through the finish for balance.

"Looks more like the typical reposado than añejo in its bright yellow/straw, chardonnay-like color; unblemished clarity. Smells properly peppery and vegetal right out of the gate; as it aerates, the bouquet turns more salty/briny and spicy and becomes far more animated. Palate entry is nicely oaked, but not enough to be resiny and retains enough agave character to be savory; midpalate is beautifully proportioned between a calm oaky sweetness, agave/vegetal character, acidity, and saltiness. Concludes oaky/woody and clean. Nice to see an añejo made in the Partida mode, where its wood maturation hand isn't overplayed and all the natural agave virtues are still present and accounted for. Very nice job here."
