I’m drinking this in a restaurant so my notes might not be a deep as usual. The nose is great. Fresh agave, bright citrus (lime), white pepper and brine. I taste sweet cooked agave, olives & minerals. The finish is perfect for a higher proof tequila. I paid $21 for 1.5oz and I’d do it again. Salud! AustinTequilaConnoisseurs

Deceptive nose, I get a lot of vegetal and nutmeg but not overwhelming agave. Completely different story in my mouth, this is so clean and pure agave, reminds me of tasting ordinario straight out of the tank! Really great juice, lovely aftertaste fades slowly.

Nose is big and bold, I love it. Agave, citrus, a pinch of cinnamon and wet grass after rain. Really round and full mouthfeel. Cooked agave, I get slight olive notes that round into pepper at the end. Long and complex finish that keeps me thinking about the flavors dancing in the back of my throat.

Aroma of dried fruit, oak and a bit of earthy mustiness. Tannins are clearly present upfront and the spice is smooth and subtle. The finish is short. After having been through 8 other Fuenteseca XA agings (7-7-8-9-11-12-15-18) this one is an anti-climax. Nothing special in aroma, flavor or finish. For a bottle that costs $900 this is a disappointment. Surprisingly, the older agings (15-18-21) were not at all barrel bombs that you might expect. But, and it is a big but, they were also not the nuanced flavor treats that you might expect. When the price of these older bottles is considered, it’s hard for me to tell anyone that they are “musts” when there are other fantastic XAs at a fraction of the price. 12/24/2018 - 6th Annual Xmas XA tasting

Aroma on this one seems much different from earlier years. Sweet fruit is much more subtle and buried beneath barrel oak and a pine/cedar note. Flavor opens with a peppery spice that is softened with fruit sweetness. The finish has a slight bitterness and is medium length. This one is hard for me to rate. The aroma is outstanding but the flavor is pretty middle of the road. I really want to love it but keep winding up at average. 12/24/2018 - 6th Annual Xmas XA tasting

Other than the oak, what are extra añejo drinkers looking for? Do they still want the presence of agave, or are they hoping that extra time in the barrel will bring more complexity? Or, is it something else entirely? We conducted a blind taste test with 2
