Balanced, not overly sweet. Agave and oak showing well together.

I had some difficulty getting the aroma right but the taste is fantastic. It has a good finish. The taste from the barrel is very well cooked which I think gives it a sweet taste. Very good tequila!!

Aromas of caramel, confectioners sugar, kind of butterscotch and oak. Agave seems hidden under the aging, but it's still nicely balanced and enough to let you know it's tequila. I think this is the darkest tequila I've ever had. Tastes like it has been literally mixed with a bourbon like Eagle Rare. There is a hint of agave and some pepper, but it is just dominated by vanilla from the oak. It has the perfect viscosity and a medium-long finish that is both sweet and dry at the same time. I've had XA's that don't even compare to this.

I probably need to give this one another chance, when I get my own bottle. This was a tiny sample in a plastic cup. My impression was too much barrel influence from the French wine barrels in combination with the American whiskey barrels. I couldn’t find enough agave...

Aroma : Vanilla, caramel, and light cinnamon. There is also some oak, orange, and butter. Taste : Lots of oak, along with some chocolate, toffee and berry fruitiness. Light butter and orange here as well. This is a good balance between sweet and spicy, while still letting you get the full complexity of each side. Finish : Long with stronger notes of vanilla, berry, and oak. There is a lot going on here. It's obvious there is a ton of complexity with this one to the extent that if someone told me this was an extra añejo, I'd probably believe them. Some may find the oak overpowering, but that's why you have to give tequilas like these time to open up, otherwise you'll miss out.

Smooth finish. Nice feel in the mouth. Notes of butterscotch and the use of the French Oak wine barrels in the aging gives it a different quality.

As a bourbon drinker, this is the closest tequila I've had so far that tastes like a whiskey. It's definitely good, but I'm getting more bourbon tones than tequila. Interesting pour.

Is this black pepper flavored tequila? I think it's black pepper flavored, in the best way.

You can really taste the flavors from being aged in wine barrels here. So many great flavors come through. This is one of my favorite anejos and try to always have a bottle around.

Smooth start. Raspy finish. Has a whisky-ish smell and taste. Aged in White Oak barrels which is what whiskey is aged in.

Nose: spice, cooked agave, rich chocolate, fig, vanilla, caramel, oak, marshmallows s'mores. Taste Oak. Slight alcohol numbness of tongue, sweet cocoa, very sugary viscosity very light. Slight Mineral bitterness towards the end. smooth exhale with a pleasurable lingering aftertaste.

On the nose this tequila has a beautiful baked agave with a hint of apple and has a nice pronounced pepper and to it but not too overpowering. Upon entry there is a nice pronounced baked agave flavor that slowly transitions to an oak and quickly finishes off with a nice lingering pepper. Overall this tequila is very smooth and showcases the wonderful baked agave which it concentrates on it, one factor which brought down the score a bit is the finish really dissipates quickly.

An excellent tequila full of flavors like caramel, chocolate, some cooked agave, and pepper. This is technically an extra Añejo as it’s aged 2-3 years in French wine casks, then a year in American oak, making 3-4 years of aging.
