This older añejo aka XA hits on a whole other level. Doesn't compare to the newer post-diffuser era Herraduras, and I've had both. While the newer versions are thinner and not as complex, this older one, packs an agave punch with mocha, plantains, tapioca, dried pineapple, butterscotch, raisins, with hints of churros!. Thing of beauty the older one is. Hard to find nowadays.

Make no mistake my tasting notes are based on a 1999 pre-diffuser anejo Beautiful viscosity and full on agave forward. Followed by candied walnuts, cherries, almond, mocha, butterscotch, light vanilla. Had a chance to taste it along with a newer Herradura Seleccion Suprema XA, and this old añejo blew it away...
