Great bang for the buck. A wee bit watery.

I found some acetone notes on the nose. Otherwise, it seems to be a more polished version of the repo, with an added floral note and not quite as much pepper on the finish. Easy to drink, enjoyable. I got 2 for 1 price, and hoped for more out of this. I would recommend the anejo first.

Open the bottle and the first experience was lots of alcohol, so I decided to let it air for few minutes. Have it neat in a mule jar. Vanilla, caramel, fruit, little anise, oak and earth aroma. Light color for a 6 year. Lots of citrus, caramel, oak without alcohol burn in nose or taste reminds me of Clase Azul reposado. Short legs on glass and finish making you want more. Lucky I found this on sale $45 a bottle.

Tasted for the first time on 2/3/19. Medium orange/golden color. Somewhat light for a 6 yr XA. Pleasant aroma of oak, anise with a hint of citrus. Thin, but slow tears that cost the Ridel nicely. Entry is smooth and complements the nose in similar fashion. No alcohol burn in nose or taste. Somewhat reminds me of Casa Nobel XA, but not quite as viscous. Very balanced in taste, but finishes similar to entry and is short. Overall, a very nice XA, but finish lacking in complexity makes it fall short of a great XA.

Very good. Very earthy and mineral like with notes of caramel, pepper, agave, and baking spices. Vanilla midpalate a little artificial

Fruity nose gave way to strong caramel blended with agave. Aftertaste was medicinal unfortunately. No fan of this one.

Love the packaging; I had high expectations for this bottle; initial pour into glass was perplexing as I expected a deeper amber color for an EA aged for 6 years; the nose is disappointing, even after aerating, still not much to speak of; across the palette, same feeling, for an EA, you just expect deeper tasting notes; on the backend, light notes of honey & spice; at a retail of $100+, I will not make another purchase;

Aroma has a fruity sweetness upfront with clay/earth underneath. The flavor has an initial heat/spice that is quickly followed by an oaky sweetness of caramel and vanilla. The finish has a slightly bitter almond taste that is medium length. 12/30/2016 - 4th Annual Xmas XA tasting.

Aroma: Very nice aroma. Hints of clay, pepper, oak and caramel. Definitely better than I was expecting. Flavor: A bit watery upfront and light in general. I get lots of caramel and a bit of smoke. I just wish it had a little more to it. Finish: This is what confuses me. The flavor is mild but the finish is nice and strong. With how light the flavor was I was expecting the finish to be lacking.

Nice and oily in the glass, mild aroma, no harshness at all. Smooth on the tongue, leaves a little bit of tingle behind. A little bit of initial oak and finishes with light hints of vanilla and caramel. Not overly robust, just an overall smooth pour. Leaves a great flavor and feel in the mouth.
