Nose- Brown sugar, Caramel, Butterscotch, Alcohol Palate- Caramel, Vanilla, Oak Finish- Woody, hot, dies off quickly Overall: Clean — Good flavor, very oaky, however a bit hot. Wonderful extra añejo expression for the price.

Amazing value XA. If you like oak and butterscotch this is for you! That’s not really my thing so the rating suffers.

On the nose, Initially cooked agave but then caramel swarms the nose. Butterscotch and maple. Hazelnut and chocolate, like Nutella but not nearly so sickly sweet. A cognac like note for sure. Definitely fruity, I swear I’m getting a hint of pear. On the palate, Spicy, sweet, and oaky. There’s cooked agave, but it’s definitely mixed in with the the flavors and not the star by any means. Definitely a cognac type of note and caramel. A little bit of heat, but not too much. Very interesting. A tasty tequila, agave is definitely not the star of the show but it is very tasty and a tremendous value.

Don't love this one. Sweet aroma but burn on the finish and okay flavor. Not my pick for a sipper but may pair nicely with food or in a drink. Update: after sitting for a week, it's much better and not as sweet

Strong cherry aroma at outset. Over time alcohol becomes more present and other barrel aromas - vanilla, pine, fresh cut lumber. Flavor opens with a spicy heat then moves to fruit notes with strong cherry again appearing. Overly sweet for my taste. Spicy finish lingers for a relatively short time. 12/24/2020 - 8th Annual Xmas XA tasting

Aromas of agave, cinnamon, and oak upon first impression. After a little while I get some fruity notes along with a bit more barrel influence. The taste is all caramel, vanilla, oak, and leather. Not much agave to speak of, so this is definitely a tequila for whiskey drinkers. The finish is a little more spicy with black pepper and oak. I wasn't expecting much for a $40 XA, but this actually pretty good, especially if it's your first experience with an extra añejo.

Price / value is very reasonable for an xa. Found it to be a little too oily and some bitter heat. A good sipper for comparisons.

Caramelized agave, chocolate, maple, vanilla, a touch of heat. This is a bargain XA. Good after dinner sipper.

The 100% agave version is the one to seek out. Bottles from several years ago were mixtos along with other San Matias products.

San Matias Gran Reserva is a great tequila and at aroound $50, a bangin' deal! Lots of spice and fruit tones, along with some cooked agave, caramel, earth, coffee and leather notes in this very complex and deep añejo. For me, it has too many heavy wood notes, but for people that have a bourbon background, I would highly recommend this tequila to them!

Not particularly crazy about it. Subtle agave on the nose, but it’s overpowered by alcohol. Same deal with the palette, which has a sort of butterscotch flavor. Not terrible, but I expected more from an extra anejo.

This has to be the best bargain going right now. This is a really good XA for the price. Not the most complex but…Getting a nice amaretto flavor. Also tasting vanilla, caramel, butterscotch, cherry and some maple.

Expected more wood or at least barrel aging here. Tastes more like a repo. Good but not great.

Not as tasty as the mixto MX version, but $40 for an XA… that’s an insane value.

I went ahead and listened to folks great reviews about this extra añejo. I’m happy I listened to those that spoke well of this extra añejo! I paid $43 for the bottle in LA and it was enjoyed by all at the party. Smooth tasting is what I enjoyed most of all! The day after report is that I spent the day feeling groggy until the afternoon. Reposados and añejos normally have that effect on me.

Very nice sweet vanilla, caramel and oak nose. Butterscotch and vanilla palate with some agave background. Really nice and light finish. Perfect for transitioning into tequila from Bourbon/Whiskey. Bargain for the price
