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.

Caramel, clove and butterscotch aromas are backed up on the tastebuds, but the finish was lacking. More alcohol showing than other similar price/age tequilas.

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.

Really had to change my mind here. First pour seemed great then upon a revisit, it was missing a lot and I just got a lot of oak. I eat time I’ve had a bottle seem to go backwards after opening. Maybe I have Covid now idk

I added this 37 month Extra Anejo, single barrel for Hi Time Wines. 50% ABV, aged in used American Oak Bourbon barrel with a medium toast. Natural sweet caramel and vanilla on the nose. Updated after additional tasting - less satisfied as the oak is a bit overwhelming for my preference. Those who enjoy heavy barrel influence will enjoy this tequila.

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

New bottle design, same as 10 year. Lots of oak influence on the nose and palate. Rich oak, caramel, vanilla bean, with hints of key lime pie, graham cracker and agave. Coming from the bourbon & Scotch world this pour is right in my wheelhouse.

Great XA Still keeps its Agave sweetness after the Bourbon Barrel. Will be purchasing another when the time comes

This is a nice anejo with caramel and spice notes. Smooth but not amazingly so. A little disappointed since the price was not indicative of the value. Just as good out there at a much less price point.

Loaded with agave, pepper, and dried fruit with hints of chocolate and caramel. Very smooth. Tastes similar to old centinela 3 años.
