It’s extremely rare to find an extra Añejo with agave all over it but here we are. This might rub XA drinkers the wrong way, it’s light on vanilla and baking spice, not very cognac(esk). Excellent stuff.

Nice continuity from the Blanco, still agave forward but with some spice from the bourbon barrels. This Tequila really comes alive when food is present, it seems to make the finish more pronounced.

Another home run from El Pandillo! Roasted agave around every corner, ample mint and black pepper on the mid palette. Citrus and green pepper on a soft, gentle finish. This is an exciting new brand, I expect great things in the future.

Full disclosure- this bottle was sent to me by the brand. I gave this an extra point for "Value" due to the unsolicted gift. Nose is baking spice, roast agave, a bit of caramel. Quite peppery with a great tongue hit from the barrel, ethanol and the agave sweetness. Some barrel sweetness hangs around on the finish as does tongue tingle from the ethanol. Well balanced elements of oak, agave and ethanol make this a treat. I just got done with tasting 10 Additive Free Blancos so this is a great change of pace and another great Ing F. Camarena production.

Nose- baking spice, wet earth, brine, ripe melon Taste- caramelized agave, cinnamon, soft vanilla, more briny minerality, ripe melon, and a little vegetal grassiness Mouthfeel- somehow more oily than the Blanco Finish- Medium and a great balance between the sweet and the spice Value- Sample provided but again it has to be worth every penny

Another banger from 1579! Nose- agave, mango, grass, olive, clay, and wet earth. Taste- sweet cooked agave, earth, briny minerality, jalapeno Mouthfeel- oily goodness Finish- Medium/Long with some lingering spicy heat and dry to balance out any sweetness. Value- Sample provided but the price doesn't matter. These folks don't gouge and it's so good.

If you can find this, grab it. It’s an excellent XA that still manages to retain agave aromas and flavors. Vanilla and caramel aromas and flavors with some dried fruit on the finish. Super pleasant crowd pleaser.
