Nose: Aged oak barrel chips. Ripe, slightly bruised dark tree fruit and berries. Cinnamon, maple, vanilla bean and citrus zest. A whisper of white pepper. Pungent alkaline minerals. Flavor: Rich silky texture, with pepper and barrel spices heating up the entrada. Creamy vanilla & maple present as in the nose - but the fruit is taking a back seat on the palate. Citrus notes bloom halfway through.

Nose: Buttery agave aromas marrying with ripe jammy fruit, cloaked in light clove and nutmeg. Just a hint of alkaline wet soil. Light and subtle butterscotch and vanilla nougat notes add another layer to the balanced essence. All aromas are understated and in harmony. Flavor: A big blast of rich agave, vivacious baking spice, medium pepper and barrel oak, are followed up with vanilla, toffee and silky sweetness on the palate. Balance and discretion are hallmarks of this profile. Finish: Vanilla and leather with receding spice and pepper make for a memorable finish.

Nose: Pure, crisp agave nose. Freshly harvested agave and cooked agave. No overly sweet or overbearing vanilla notes sometimes found at #1480. Wet rocks, potting soil and trace wet wood aromas. There is some background spice and light pepper trying to emerge. Flavor: Be prepared for a spirited black pepper and salt start. The subsequent sips bring creamy agave and a kitchen cabinet full of spiciness. Sits nicely on the palate, but with plenty of boldness. Finish: Lengthy and punchy finish. This tequila has character.

for the price you can't beat it, the nose has nice vanilla, oak, caramel, cooked agave, cinnamon, fruit, pepper and cream, which follows through on the taste. Made well and very solid for the price. Great deal for an XA.

Super well rounded. Caveat emptor/ its aged long enough it does REALLY take on the barrel notes. I’m starting to gravitate more towards lightly aged expressions and this one doesn’t quite fit into that category
