At Cantina Feliz there are 8 different tequila flights available and about 50 different tequilas to choose from.  So of course we went right for the Anejo Tequila flight with Don Julio, El Tesoro and Tres Generaciones.   Check out the brief history of these three tequilas and a taste test review.  The Reposado Tequila Flight review featuring Correlejo, Hornitos and Casa Noble is coming soon as well as a Cantina Feliz restaurant review. 

Chef Tim Spinner previously worked with Iron Chef Jose Garces at Stephen Starr’s El Vez and then at Garces’ first restaurant, Amada. Spinner also helped Garces open Distrito and served as chef de cuisine. Spinner’s business partner and high school buddy, Brian Sirhal, served as beverage director at Garces’ Distrito and as general manager at Cantina Feliz.

Established in 1942 by Don Julio, this tequila is made with 100% blue agave.  Matured in American White Oak Barrels for 18 months, the Don Julio Anejo Tequila is light and golden in color.  With a vanilla scent and sweet flavor, well rounded and tangy, this Anejo has a great bite.  There is a complex and charming finish with a sweet aftertaste.  This is an excellent Anejo.

Made with 100% agave and the winner of 9 gold medals in international spirit competitions, the El Tesoro Anejo Tequila is handmade and aged two to three years in oak barrels.  Founded by Don Felipe, the El Tesoro Tequila is a family recipe dating back to the early 1800’s and the current La Atena distillery was founded in 1937.  The El Teroso scent is complex and the flavor is spicy, dry and tasty.  Also having sweet and buttery notes with hints of nuts, oak and wood, the El Tesoro Anejo is a unique and flavorful tequila.
