Aroma : Light agave with vanilla, caramel, almond, and oak. Taste : Vanilla, caramel, oak, cinnamon, and baking spices. Agave is ever so light here, just like in the aroma. This is medium bodied and somewhat dry in texture but still oily to an extent. Finish : Long with more oak, almond, and baking spices. Like the Añejo, this doesn't have the nice buttery texture of the other Alquimia bottles, but there's still some great flavor here.

Earthy, smoky, vanilla and oak. Brown sugar and berries on finish. Pretty good.

If you are an Alquimia fan, which i am, this will not disspoint. As an XA, it will of course pick up the oaky, vanilla and caramel flavors, but its not overpowering. The cooked agave still shines through. With the single estate agave and traditional methods of cooking, i put this distillery as one of my favorites.

creamy vanilla nose. very sweet entry, almost cloying. sweetness fades on finish, just a hint of southern sweet tea at the end.

Blind tasted. This a nice quite smooth XA. It's sweet but not too much. Not a lot of oak and not very complex either. The value compared to the other samples gives it quite few points, although it definitely not the most remarkable in terms of taste.

A bit of Vanilla on aroma. I taste a slight cinnamon on the finish. I liked the flavor, but the finish over-powered the flavor.

Subtle fruit notes. With some sweet agave chocolate and cherry. Medium mouth feel. There is a bit of alcohol burn on entry with wood,fruit and slight anise. Has a slight warm finish with mellow wood and earth.

Kind of bland for the price point. Hints of butterscotch, but not a lot of depth.

Pleasant aroma of agave, wood and citrus. The flavor takes on spicy cinnamon and baked apple notes to compliment the wood and vanilla. This one seems to improve with every sip

Rated blind. Citrus and refined wood notes, without sweetness. Virgin oak? Low toast? Refined. Bottom of the glass has a great buttery nose. Really nice and a great price!

This XA starts off with a nice aroma with notes of caramel, coffee and oak. The flavor however is lacking a bit. I was hoping for it to be a little more complex but I mostly get oak and a slight bitterness. It finishes nicely and well balanced throughout. This is a solid XA that I would definitely recommend. I just with the flavor was slightly more complex.

I miss the smoky nose that you get from the brick oven, but this a beautifully smooth extra anejo. Pricey but a fantastic sipper for special occasions.

A solid extra anejo. A little light on color for 6 years of aging which I like, not overpowered by the oak. Less sweetness then the repo and anejo, more prominent are the oak and agave with a stronger peppery finish. A little on the pricey side.

6 yr anejo. vanilla oak carmel agave, and same on the palate with some cinnamon, apple, a little smoke. sweeter drier finish than the anejo. finish lingers. interesting that tbis XA was aged in different barrels than the repo or anejo. no French oak barrels used in aging this 6yr. it's my favorite alquimia expression so far. still need to try the 14 yr

I’ve been trying to find this one for a while. I like the Blanco Alquimia very much. Resting it six years brings a whole different experience. It is rich, complex and delicious! I let it breathe for quite a while. The aroma is fruity, sweet and earthy. I’m still getting plenty of agave! And there’s even a slight hint of cinnamon and spice. Taste is full and almost like butter melting on your tongue. There is a dark sweetness to it that I like. It lingers for quite some time. Yes there is vanilla and caramel but also some fruit and citrus. Finish is good… I wished it lasted a little longer. The sweetness fades into a light butterscotch. This might be one of the best extra Añejos I’ve had. Very clean and full of complexity.

Aromas of sweet agave with vanilla, and I get a chocolate cherry scent too. Easy sipping especially after a nice dinner. Great balance of agave, oak, spice, and heat.

Such a delightful tequila to sip on now in the Fall months. This is super easy to drink!! It’s an amazing tequila for a great price. I wish I can buy this locally but cannot. I always make sure I have some on hand. The agave and barrel notes from Jack Daniels are very well balanced. Thank you Señor Adolfo for this amazing tequila.

Aroma of vanilla undertones. Front loaded alcohol hits you very harsh. Hard to tell it’s aged it’s like a high end Jose Cuervo shot.

Tequila Alquimia Reserva de Don Adolfo Extra Añejo – “The Art of Agave”

Like all the other Alquimia products, this tequila expression is something special. The main reason: although it’s an extra añejo the agave still shines through. Amen for that!

Review #118 - Alquimia Tequila Extra Anejo

A tequila that all tequila lovers should try. A really well aged (6 years) tequila with a ton of character.
