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.

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.

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!

Used to be one of my favorites but the flavours changed a lot when they started making it a mixto, so disappointing but I saw it coming.

Still getting used to añejos. This is my 1st extra. Dried fruits and tangerine peel in the aroma. Oak, vanilla and caramel in the taste. Finishes with a cherry, chocolate, white pepper.

Faint as others noted. Oak, earthy. Has pleasant subtle bite at the end. Overall for $43 it’s a great value!

Vegetal nose with lots of oak and faint dill. Interesting flavor profile of sweet cabbage and oak. Very faint flavors of agave and citrus. Peppery finish that lingers.

Sweet cherry aroma. Unusual but I like it. The flavor only has minimal agave but is smooth without being artificially sweet. The finish does have some spice but is also muted. This is a situational tequila. If the mood is right.......... It is also a good intro into XA. Worth the purchase as you expand your tequila expertise.

Very sweet, would pour over ice cream level sweet. Round notes of caramel and agave. Lingering finish on your tongue. Almost a coating.
