Cooked agave, vanilla, caramel, slight oak on the nose. Some floral notes as it opens up. Cooked agave comes through in the flavor with oak, pepper, a bit of mineral. Finish starts buttery and ends long and spicy. One of my favorite reposados without a doubt!

Great value for an XA. Proof is spot on, not too hot. Not too oaky. Maintains the agave with vanilla and pepper. Well balanced, wish I'd bought more.

Similar to Pasote, in that it tastes like you're drinking refreshing water from a spring. It's so full of sweetness from the agave, earthy anise, buttery, that it's unbelievable.

Aroma : Lots of cooked agave, some minerals, and green apple. No strong alcohol notes. Taste : Thick and oily and with crisp agave. There's a small degree of minerality here as well, but there is also olive and cinnamon. Finish : Long and somewhat alcohol numbing with plenty of cooked agave lingering for a while after. Normally I would think this level of alcohol would be a distraction from the quality, but it ends up complimenting it considering the simplicity, but full flavor of all the notes.

Aroma : Complex with pear/peach fruit notes, cooked agave, vanilla, oak, and mint. Taste : You can definitely taste the extra alcohol on this one. But that does play nicely into the baking spice/black pepper spiciness this tequila has going on. There is also some degree of peach here as well as caramel and a small amount of oak. Finish : Long and somewhat hot with emphasis on the black pepper/baking spice. Some vanillla. This is definitely the 'hottest' tequila I've had from NOM 1579. Great complex flavor but interesting to see such an alcohol presence on a bottle like this. But then again, this is a 110 proof, so I'll have to see how similar ABV's measure up.

Aroma : Berries, minerality and baking spices. A hint of black pepper too. Taste : Light cooked agave and cinnamon. Caramel and more baking spices, and somewhat peppery, and some minor oak notes. This is light in flavor. Finish : Long lasting with with stronger emphasis on fruity notes and caramel. Another top tier bottle of Terralta. I really like how this is so light in flavor but offers enough complexity to be a great extra añejo.

Terralta Añejo Tequila – “Earthly Pleasure”

If you think the term terroir only applies to wine, the Terralta line will make you think again. Aromas of soil (earth, mushrooms) and minerals remain even in the añejo, mixing pleasantly with barrel flavors such as vanilla, maple, and caramel.
