Might be the best finish of any XA I’ve tried, just keeps going! Rich and full, really leaves nothing to be desired other than dessert and a cigar.

A bit pricey, but delivers more than other expensive tequilas.

Deep gold color with elegant slow legs. Nose goes on forever, offering up new layers at every turn. My first aromas were of new oak notes mingling with ripe agave. Then a vanilla cinnamon custard sensation crept in. Following were meaty, earthy notes. All this wrapped up in spicy cinnamon, anise, fruity package. Flavor: Considerably more oak presents on the palate than did on the nosing. More whiskey flavor. The agave and fruit notes take a step back from the nose. Given a little more time, I got more vanilla, nuts, pepper, minerals and a hint of cherry. Finish: A long, complex and elegant finish. The price knocked the rating down a few points, and a little too much oak presence for my preference. A revisit and tweak on my original rating. June 16, 2018

Blind tasted. A nice oak presence in the nose and palate, without being overpowering. A nice complexity, mouthfeel and spice. This is definitely an excellent elegant tequila, I wish it had a bit more agave presence and a little less alcohol burn. Also the fact is quite expensive doesn't help. But in the end in terms of taste it's definitely my favorite between the sampled ones.

There is a really nice big aroma, dessert like- think bananas foster or other caramel type desserts. Fairly thick mouth feel. Sweet but not overly with minerals and barrel. Then all this comes through on the nicely balanced finish which stays with you for awhile.

Wow. Crazy smooth. This would go great with dessert. Amazing flavor, but I wonder if maybe the smoothness is TOO extreme? It almost rolls down your throat before you've tasted it.

A somewhat subtle aroma of wood, floral and caramel. A spicy cinnamon and wood flavor with hints of vanilla. A good tequila at an extraordinary price.

Rated blind. Beautiful rich color. Alcohol and wood on the nose. Mellow on the palate. Nice finish. Some agave on the nose after it opens up, but not much agave left for the palate. Goes down smooth and finishes a bit dry. There's no way I would pay $300 for this, or encourage a friend to pay that price, but then again, I'm a big fan of agave flavors found in the lesser-aged expressions.

From a blind tasting. Much darker, richer and more like a cognac in terms of legs in the glass than #1, the Alquimia Extra Añejo which I am comparing it to for the Tasting Panel. Deeper, more refined wood notes suggesting longer aging as well. A big burst of oak and nutmeg in the mouth and a long lingering finish. Edited to add brand names.

Complex aroma with fruit (cherry and orange in particular) up front then vanilla and oak underlying nicely. Flavor is initially dominated by oak but followed by fruit and a very nice spice. After such a big, complex flavor the finish is only moderate. Overall, a very nice sipping tequila. However, the at $340 the price relegates this tequila to special occasions.

The aroma is very heavy. I get a mix of some very bold notes: cherry, oak, chocolate and tobacco. And it shouldn't come as a surprise that the flavor is very bold as well. It's very strong with notes of chocolate, tobacco and leather. The finish is extremely good. It really hangs around. The biggest issue with this XA is the price point. Otherwise it would be a home run.

A nice, fruity nose. I like the mouth feel on the finish, it's almost creamy and the berry flavor present in the aroma also comes through on the finish. I had to go down on the value though. The aroma, flavor and finish all appealed to me, but I just have a hard time with the price point.

Tons of citrus on the nose. Wonderful thick oily mouth feel. Nice caramelized agave still comes though. Aging is done to perfection here. The finish is spicy but not "scratchy" or rough like many other extra añejos. Very delicate and balanced. This is a job well done. A bottle of this will set you back $400, so it's a sipper best saved for special occasions.

Nice citrus notes and rounded French Oak barrel flavors- vanilla and baking spices. It has a great oily mouthfeel and pleasant, medium-length finish. But, at nearly $400 a bottle, it does lose some points on value.
