I bought a bottle from a friend, but the retail is USD60 and, in my opinion, worth much more, hence the value rating of 9. Ratings for other aspects are high because the aroma is quite vibrant and the tequila is very flavorful. Neither has anything offensive or obtuse. Nose: some yeast, citrus, cooked agave, sweet earth. Palate: citrus, agave, some yeast, minerality, sweet earth. Finish: Brief alcohol up front, which turns into minerality with a small amount of earthiness.

Slightly disappointed as I expected better. I find other Ocho XAs have the edge over this 888 at a lower price point.
