Very good xa, on the lighter side for a 10 yr xa, sweet cooked agave shines in this bottle

Lot 70 of 122. An amazing nose and taste. Nice fruit with some heat, caramel, vanilla, apricot/fruit, orange citrus. Sweet agave passing through, and not all oak with the 10 yr aging. Taste has a sweetness with alcohol (but not excessive for a 110 proof), caramel, vanilla, raisen/apricot. orange citrus. Amazing!!

Way too much barrel aging for me, personally, overwhelms the tequila, but clearly an exceptional and well made example of being exactly what it is supposed to be. If Extra Anejo is your thing, but it.

It’s a whiskey lovers tequila. It is heavy on vanilla and caramel, with some earthy spice. Agave is there, but it blends into the sweetness. I’m a whiskey lover and adore this bottle. It’s not what I would call ‘traditionally’ perfect, but it’s an excellent bottle.

This is my all time favorite and only score it 97 because I have never given anything in life a perfect score. This is genuinely a slow sipping slice of heaven. Señor Orendain has crafted a barrel strength Tequila for the ages. It is additive free and it's Carmel overtones occupy the majority of my taste buds with a heavy Agave character and a taste of honey. I would choose an evening sipping this over anything that wasn't a night of wild passion with Heather Graham. if you can get some, do not miss out.

This is smooth and citrus blast... kinda reminds me of the move starship pain. Smooth move but with a bright slam at the end...bottle 128 of 170, Barrel# CLXX

Nice sweet agave for an extra Anejo. When I did a tasting at el Murcielago Tequileria in Monterey, MX, Arette extra Anejo was a stand out for the way it expressed the fruit. Good bit of jalapeño, bell pepper and oiliness of oak in the nose, light bodied entry, orange and citrus spice in finish along with vanilla, apricot, chocolate. At $100+, it is still a great value and lot of nuanced complexity.

I love this one. You can really tell it’s a lowland despite the heavy oaking; it’s got lots of vanilla, caramel, dark chocolate and orange, but also a very unique mushroom flavour which I have yet to find anywhere else. Too bad it’s so expensive or I’d drink it all the time.

Just kinda there...nothing necessarily remarkable. Fairly smooth but odd aroma and harsh finish. Then again I am new to Tequila and my favorite so far is Dos Artes Especial...that said I have had a few others that I have liked more.

They make a 55% that cannot be purchased in the States, it’s made in very limited batches and not every year. I have a bottle #55 of 125, and yes this is validated by the family of the Distillery. This is a very fine example a true sipping tequila, and not just with anyone, but for someone who appreciates the craft. The final roll of the back of the tongue is what separates this from everything else. Do not ruin this with a slice of pear, orange etc, keep it as neat as possible and enjoy.

Great find. Expensive but still at a better price point than competing brands, especially for the quality of this tequila. Smooth, not too peppery, not too sweet....just right with a nice warm finish. This will definitely be one of my top favorites.
