This is an excellent Highlands / El Alto Añejo that has been aged for 24 months in charred American white oak whiskey barrels. The nose is sweet and fruity which I’ve come to expect from agave forward Highland tequilas. The cooked agave is nice and buttery while the fruitiness has notes of dark stewed fruits. There are some light barrel tannins and spices coming from the oak barrel. There’s some faint minerality coming from their masonry horno and massive stone tahona. I taste the buttery cooked agave, natural agave sweetness, fruit and barrel notes all at once. It’s a well balanced Anejo that has many delicious notes. The alcohol gives a nice tingle and slightly spicy finish. Although there are many flavors the tequila still rests easy on the palate with a nice medium body.
Caramel and vanilla on the nose. Agave is very subtle but not surprising for a 7yr. Little heat on the finish. Palate is nice but not sensing the agave coming through. Barrel is definitely pronounced here.
I had tried the aged expressions but not the blanco, this is quite good. It tastes like a blanco tequila should taste - cooked agave with a herbal undertone. Gets several points due to value as it is priced very competitively for a tahona-produced tequila.
Chocolate, berry, whisky, and cinnamon highlight this affordable option for a 7 year XA!
My bottle has a crown but it is 2022 and it says it was aged for 7 years. This was very good and a great value when compared to other equally aged tequilas. Natural sweetness and deep char notes paired very nicely with some cooked agave. The agave is more of a secondary note while in the añejo it still shines, very likely due to the 7 years. Highly recommend.
Tequila distillers are increasingly using the historic tahona wheel to crush agave and influence the flavor of their spirits.
Every year, Suerte Tequila releases a special-edition extra añejo tequila. In 2018, that comes in the form of Lucky Lips, a tequila that’s been aged for eight years.

This tequila has a soft spot in our heart for two reasons: It’s made the old-fashioned way, and it contains the rare aroma of melon, which we love!
The Suerte line is excellent. This is a really well made, tasty tequila. I highly recommend it and the prices are amazing, especially for the labor involved. You will have a hard time finding equivalent quality at this price. Simply Spectacular!!
