Funny it took 3 tries to actually purchase this bottle as several sellers used it as a stock photo but shipped 2014 La Magueyera instead. Both Old Town and Mission did this. Not as pale as some earlier releases, this is still very light as an XA but has a depth of flavor that belies that color equals flavor. Agave, spice, caramel, creme brulee and more agave make this a treasure to savor.

I like this more than the blanco as the barrel mellows out some of the citric/citrus notes and adds some tannins, though very muted. So easy to go back to, open bottles of this never last long.
