I rated an older bottle from 2015-ish. not sure how this compares to newer bottles

Aroma very faint, light oak, agave, figs, tobacco. Flavor of agave and oak really nicely balanced. The wood really is more of an accent than overpowering. For an XA it's not too heavy but imparts just enough character.

A very spiced up XA, not of my liking at this moment I believe the barrel overcomes

Cedar, bourbon, caramel, clove, pepper — a whiskey lover’s tequila. Nice legs.

I thought I was buying a tequila, but it is dominated by the bourbon barrel aging. I see the quality is there, but the bourbon overruns.

It’s so unique to find an agave forward XA, look no further if that’s your thing. Loads of agave on the nose with the smell of grilling pancakes in the background, this is as appealing as I’ve ever experienced. Birthday cake and agave coats your mouth, this has a perfect a perfect finish in intensity and duration. This stuff is incredible!!

This is the Mexican 38% version... This was one of the first memorable tequilas that I tried back in 2008, shortly after I moved to Mexico. As I remember it, the bottle was before there was the designated class “Extra Añejo”. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. It will remain the runaway best of the ones that I had tasted in my early years I’m on my third bottle now - each one a bit different in the profile emphasis. Still a high quality tequila and recommended, but my personal preferences have moved along...

Woody Vanilla Oak

Bottle No. 91 of 120. Heavy aroma of oak/wood. Slight sweetness in flavor but dominated by wood and tannin. Lasting, warm peppery finish.

Aroma has notes of vanilla and a slight smokiness from aging. The flavor is nothing like what I expected. I thought I would get a sweet smooth flavor but instead I get a harsh oak taste. Maybe something more for a person who enjoys whiskey. But as someone who is a much bigger fan of less aged tequila (blancos & repos) this isn't my cup of tea.

It's a good sipper, but it is overpriced in the US. Price forces me to not recommend it.

Lots lots of floral, chamomile like agave essence on the nose. The flavor is full body floral citrusy, vanilla, kind of reminds me of Four Roses bourbon, the finish has a touch of oak spice from the Bourbon barrel and it’s simply delicious.

Bourbon barrel influence over powers the agave on this EA, slight cooked agave, with mild pepper finish.

My work’s barrel pick: Extra Anejo "Hi-Time Barrel"; aged 37 months in used Bourbon barrel, distilled in 2014, toasting level medium. This extra anejo tequila boasts a complex profile. On the nose, expect inviting scents of cinnamon, oak, subtle vanilla, caramel, and cooked agave, with a touch of baked apple-like fruitiness. The palate opens with a burst of sweet agave, followed by midpalate oak and tannic notes. As the journey concludes, vanilla, caramel, and the enduring presence of cooked agave shine through. The finish leaves a lasting, natural agave sweetness complemented by a pleasant warmth from the high 50% ABV.

Lote: LF112045, bottled on 28-08-2020. Color: brown to medium brown. Aroma: butterscotch, vanilla, slightly herbaceous which would be the characteristic most similar to agave, wood aromas are very intense, buttery. Alcohol sensation is medium low. Palate: confirms aromas perceived, wood aroma dominates. Finish is medium to long, creamy butterscotch persists.

Tasted this at the Arette distillery in Tequila. Amazing moderate size distillery, quality product, all natural. I enjoyed the hints barrel notes and the smooth finish. Very flavourful. Highly recommend the brand and artesenal line of tequilas.

Slightly sweet, good viscosity, taste of higher proof, but only 40% Somewhat of a dry finish, slight burn, but the finish last a while

This is an incredible extra Anejo.. agave, Carmel, oak, orange peel, nutmeg, more fruit on the nose which all flavors follow through on the palette. Not overally oaked in the mouth. Great viscosity. Finish is unbelievable and balance is amazing. Not usually one for aged tequila, but this really does hit all the marks.

Store Pick From Nana Kitchen 10yr at 46% Some might think this is over oaked, but for a 10yr Xa this is money, and considering it was around $165, it is a great value. Brown sugar, cooked agave, molasses, vanilla, caramel, some heat a very nice dram

Both the Mexican and export versions parlay dominant barrel notes with cooked agave flavors. Enjoyable and approachable, with a pleasant finish.

48% Cask Strength Bottling On the nose you get a lot of cedar, bittersweet chocolate, clove, cinnamon, and cooked agave. Tones of bitter oak, vanilla, coffee, and some herbal qualities. The finish is long, bitter, and oaky. At $300 it's pretty expensive, even for an extra anejo, but the nose is top tier. But this is a tequila, not a candle, and that bitter oak is really overpowering. Very strongly flavored XA, and the only knocks are the price tag and that strongly bitter oak.
