Aroma : Fruits and earth predominate. There is the lightest touch of cinnamon and agave. Taste : Light fruits with caramel and vanilla make up the sweet side of this tequila. The less prominent, spicier notes can be attributed to light oak and black pepper. The texture is very well rounded. Finish : Medium in length with a little more spice than the initial taste. The higher price makes this lose some points in value considering there are other, even better extra añejos that cost less.

Can’t believe I haven’t tried this yet. I will definitely add this to my collection.

Rich floral dried fruit full nose. Big butterscotch and vanilla blast. Rounded balanced vibrant entry. I’m pleasantly surprised so far. I’m liking this! This is Don Fulano at its best.

Prior rating was deleted from the database due to an error a while ago. Tasted blind with other XA. Solid and flavorful this had been a favorite. I prefer the older, larger blue ceramic bottles to the new ones.

Aroma: Much like the Anejo it has strong hints of oak but then also has notes of vanilla, caramel, and cherry. Strangely, it also has an earthy quality that I would normally associate with a blanco. Flavor: It definitely has a strong oak flavor with hints of cinnamon and cherry. Finish: nice long smooth finish. It also leaves your mouth feeling a little dry which I think is a unique characteristic.

Aroma of caramel, dirt and citrus. Incredibly smooth, slightly sweet flavors of caramel, vanilla and cinnamon. Fairly tannic and mouth-drying but not overly so. Great finish that lingers for a good, long time.

This tequila has bright peat, cinnamon and earthy aromas, and a delightful almost fruity flavor. The finish seems to bring a few surprises as it delivers waves of delicious complexity. This is a real treat.

This tequila's aromas of earth and agave don't hint at the delicious, slightly sweet carmel, anise taste that hits your palate upon the first sip. A treat for sure, but a bit pricey.

Tasting the Don Fulano imperial blind, I had no idea as to how much I would dig this juice! For a tequila that has been aged for 5 years (in I believe, heavy charred casks) there is a ton of agave in the nose and in the taste! Notes of cooked agave, dry earth, orange peel, cinnamon, white pepper, dark caramel, toffee, coffee, leather and honey this tequila has a lot of heavy oak nots, but not overly sweet. I'm totally diggin' it!

Pitted fruit on the taste, sweet but not overly sweet still had to search for the agave.... easy to sip

Loads and loads of oak. Definitely overpowers the natural agave. A decent bit of caramel and light pepper on the back end. Very syrupy mouth feel. Not the best XA but definitely not the worse

Another excellent XA from NOM 1146, great balance of agave and barrel aging

Profound taste, deep wood, agave is present, strong at the begining and great aftertaste. Savor profundo, gran sabor a madera presente, fuerte el primer trago y luego el retrogusto te incita al siguiente trago. Un retrogusto madera muy rico.

Got to drink this at the distillery recently and had not tried it in 3 years. It was still as amazing as remembered, lots of agave still present event after a long maturation. I got peppery notes which balances well with the sweetness from the barrel. Delicious!!!

My 2nd bottle, 1st review; 1st bottle was older, nicer packaging; I’m neutral on the nose, just not very impressive for this price point; nice tones of caramel & agave on the front end; slight sweet honeysuckle on the back of the palette; this is a very smooth tequila but just a little shallow for the price point of $150USD;

This great tequila defies odds by proving how wood and agave can coexist without wood dominating. Flavors of charred wood, agave, pepper, coffee, citrus, nutty sherry, peat, caramel, and chocolate. Bourbon, rum, brandy, and tequila in 1.
