This Lot 1 was from Felipe Camarena's last barrels, so if you have the 1st lot, treasure and savor it. Not as dark as his other XAs but still a worthy bottle to continue his legacy. Agave, fruity, herbaceous, buttery, butterscotch, caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, spices, not too oaky. Nicely balanced. Some lot 1s may still be out there and the price seems to be going up on these. I grabbed a case upon release at 69 and now I see them at up to 169...

This anniversary release from 2007 takes it to another level right where the Paradisos left off. Agave punches you, then it opens up to dark chocolate, mocha, almond, orange zest, vanilla, cinnamon, marshmallow, melon, crumb cake, nutmeg, plantains, so rich and viscose. This is next level shit.

Not too much of a difference between the multi- colored Paradisos from 2016 and on and the newer brown packaging. Both have similar profiles on nose and palate. Warm agave, mocha, candied walnuts, nutty, citrus, figs, cinnamon, apple pie, butterscotch, vanilla, banana, tapioca... so complex and superb balance with a beautiful lasting linger. The older ones especially the Denton bottles are true treasures. The pre-2010s are a few notches above the current releases. One of the best XAs made.
