El Tesoro Paradiso Tequila

For father's day I'm considering splurging on this interesting tequila. According to my research this is an anejo that's been barrel aged in cognac barrels. Normally I don't (nor does my Dad) go for anejos -- we prefer reposados. BUT I'm thinking this might be something cool to try out. Anyone out there given this particular bottle a whirl? Care to share your impressions?

FROM EL TESORO (please excuse the superlatives)

Created by Don Felipe Camarena and Alain Royer of A. de Fussigny Cognac, this unique, handcrafted blend of 100% blue agave tequilas takes on a remarkable elegance from its distinct, Cognac-barrel aging process. Aged for 5 years, El Tesoro Paradiso® is irresistible and deliciously smooth.

  1. Did you try it? I've always enjoyed the El Tesoro Reposado. Have never had their Paradiso, would be curious as well.

      I ended up buying (and sharing) this bottle with my Dad. Extremely smooth bottle and to be honest a little too round for our tastes. This isn't to say that we didn't enjoy it BUT it really lacked some of the bite that I enjoy while drinking tequila. However if you enjoy Anejo tequila you'll like this if you can get over the sticker price.
