Does anyone else feel that synthetic corks are taking a negative effect on their anejo's such as El Tesoro and others who have switch from real cork to synthetic?

I have. I find it affects a blanco more so though. By the time they get to repo and anejo some of synthetic effect seems to be somewhat accounted for. ie. I seem to enjoy El Tesoro reposado and anejo to a point but I don't enjoy the blanco as much as I once did. I'm referring to olive oil bottles on the shelves these days.




yeah. I'm not a fan of synthetic corks, at all.

I sure am enjoying Partida anejo once again this evening. Partida has become one of my all-time favorite anejo's.

I am ready to try the less aged siblings though.

It's time to come up with a complete Top 5 Anejo list. So far on the list in no particular order:

Partida anejo
Chinaco anejo
El Tesoro anejo
Casa Noble anejo (Based on 1 bottle)
Aha Toro anejo

Honorable mention: Fina Estampa anejo, 7 Leguas anejo

To date I have not tasted anything above the $60 price-point. (After all these years) (The above CNA was sold as a 2 year anejo at $55. It was a 5 year!)
