Lote1 gift set. Have always liked this brand. They have new bottle design, but the current tequila is just as tasty as this first lote . Salud Adolfo Murillo!

Aroma : Light agave with vanilla, caramel, almond, and oak. Taste : Vanilla, caramel, oak, cinnamon, and baking spices. Agave is ever so light here, just like in the aroma. This is medium bodied and somewhat dry in texture but still oily to an extent. Finish : Long with more oak, almond, and baking spices. Like the Añejo, this doesn't have the nice buttery texture of the other Alquimia bottles, but there's still some great flavor here.

Rich amber color and an aroma that definitely shows its 14-year aging. Great mix of caramel and dried fruit but also cooked agave in the mix. Also a bit of smokiness - burnt caramel, wood char. The 50% ABV shows up in the flavor and brings the sweet fruit, caramel and agave fully forward. The higher alcohol also brings a bit of heat to the finish but not to the detriment of flavor. Finish lingers for a good, long time. This is a great wintertime XA. Light the fireplace and watch the snow fall. (But, also such a significant contrast to the lighter touch of the Volans XA.) 12-24-2019 7th Annual Xmas XA tasting

Aroma : All cherry, berry, agave, oak and caramel on the nose. Taste : Notes from the aroma carry through here too, just with a little more spice. Finish : Medium/long with more fruity notes, and some caramel as well. Another great expression from Alquimia. The Blanco and Reposado definitely have a more "buttery" aspect to them, but this has the fruit notes, which is always welcome.

Aroma : Cooked agave, caramel, vanilla, oak and cinnamon. Taste : Cooked agave, vanilla, butter, and cinnamon. There is also a certain degree of oaky spice that plays well with the sweeter notes. Great, oily texture in the mouth. Finish : Long with a little stronger emphasis on the buttery, vanilla sweeter side of this tequila.

Aroma : Cooked agave and pear. Taste : Cooked agave and pear show up here too. There is also a small degree of black peppery spice, but not much. Oily texture. Finish : Long with stronger emphasis on cooked agave and and pear. This is a phenomenal example of a very simple and uncomplex, but richly flavored tequila. Blancos like this and G4 are a must have.
