Another masterpiece from the Rosales family. Melted butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and spice lead the way before cooked agave takes over. Subtle oak notes present, but it doesn’t overpower the agave. I get raisins at the back end before a warm finish. Bravo

Aroma : Dried fruit with pear, raspberry. Almond, vanilla, and caramel. Some baking spices and a small touch of cooked agave. Taste : Full bodied with the same dried fruit notes with cooked agave as well. Oak, nutty with almond, and light sweetness with vanilla and caramel. Finish : Long lasting and prolongs dried fruit notes with a little bit of cherry, and the same nutty and sweet notes from before. This tequila hit all the right notes for me. Plus I love that there was cooked agave AND dried fruit notes. With many Añejos and Extra Añejos it seems like you only get one or the other. This is top tier.

Lots of oak on the nose, need to let it breath for a bit after initial pour. Very soft flavor.

Cherries and tropical fruit on the nose, with hints of agave. Initial taste of pepper, immediately followed by tannins and caramel. Long and complex finish, nice heat on the tongue and throughout. An exceedingly interesting XA that hasn’t lost its soul in the barrel.

Appearance: Dark amber color. A corona forms, and eventually some of the slowest tears that I have ever seen. Nose: Caramel, vanilla, ripe berries, green olives and vibrant baking spices. Hint of oak marries well with the agave. Flavors: Explosive. Baking spices, toffee, cafe au lait, pepper, and nice round fruit and agave. Balance and finesse make this exceptional.

This México only tequila has a nice golden color. The nose starts with caramel and cooked agave. There are notes of creme brulee, vanilla and orange peel. The taste is a sweet mix of agave, oak and pepper. The finish is smooth and short. Overall this is a great tequila but I think it drinks more like an Anejo than an XA. If you can find a bottle, purchase it!

Dried fruit (apricot, apple, plum?), pecan, vanilla & caramel nose. Aromas come through in flavor with dry American Oak finish balanced with sweet agave. Real, rounded and delicious. One of my favorites.

This is one incredible extra añejo. I almost don't know where to start. First, the aroma is so killer that it almost brings me to tears. So real, honest, legit. This is how it's supposed to be, folks. No additives, no bullshit, 100% what it's all about. Cooked agave, yes. And dried fruit, cherry, nuts, almonds, caramel, vanilla, peach. Flavor is intense dried fruit and agave with some caramel and vanilla. Not the fake "caramel" and "vanilla" additive that can be easily dumped into a batch, but the real stuff that can only come from spending a long time in a barrel. Balanced like a fine crafted work of art that can only be done with time and patience. I SO wish more tequilas could be like this. It is (currently) only available in Mexico, so coming home with this (as a non-mexican) is a serious score. <3

First time trying the extra añejo. Beautiful yellow, straw gold color. Legs and tear drops for days. Nose is roasted agave, no harshness, caramel, vanilla, orange, pineapple, oak, hint of chocolate and menthol. On the palate it is agave followed immediately by vanilla, caramel, oak, honey, some of the pineapple. On the finish hints of black pepper, more agave, caramel, menthol. This feels very refined, rich, very creamy, well balanced, approachable, dangerously subtle, complex, dry. Primera vez probando el extra añejo. Hermoso color amarillo pajizo, dorado. Piernas y lágrimas que perduran. En nariz es de agave tostado, sin asperezas, caramelo, vainilla, naranja, piña, roble, un toque de chocolate y mentolado. En boca es agave seguido inmediatamente de vainilla, caramelo, roble, miel, algo de piña, plátano. Al final notas de pimienta negra, más agave, caramelo, mentolado. Se siente muy refinado, rico, muy cremoso, bien equilibrado, accesible, peligrosamente sutil, complejo, seco.

Friendly on the nose... notes of agave, caramel, vanilla and spice. Pronounced agave flavor for an XA, with all the flavor influences of the aforementioned aromas. Good stuff, indeed.

Beautiful agave, carmel, vanilla, oak, pepper, and subtle alcohol on the nose. Very delicate on the palate. Carmel, roasted agave, vanilla, nice oak presence, and a little cinnamon on the tongue. Pretty quick finish makes you want another sip. Very good XA. Thanks Cascahuin!

Complex on the nose. Nice mouth feel and finish. No artificial sweetness upfront on the palate and a nice amount of spice/heat. Cooked agave and oak.

Bottle I tried had a strong bitter note that I didn’t enjoy.

If you like sweet, caramel-vanilla añejos, I recommend you try this. However, I was not overly impressed. After a few sips, it became almost unbearably cloying with an artificial-like sweetener taste setting in. Flavorful caramel, vanilla and agave. But again, after a few drinks/sips, candy sweetness is mostly what I taste. Nice mouthfeel, smoother than others, great after dinner sipper but just not what I’m looking for in an añejo. I will revisit this in a few days… Few days later and same outcome.

The word that flounced to mind as soon as I sniffed at this was ‘mellifluous’ - I’m not sure why, since it’s not entirely appropriate, but damn, try this juice and tell me the word doesn’t capture something about it. This stuff is so rich and flavourful that you could spend several minutes on the nose alone. Another great entry. Let’s all get absolutely shitfaced.

Very sweet aroma: honey caramel -favourite smelling tequila Taste: I usually don’t like the flavour of anejo but I loved the flavour -it kept the sweeter flavour and I got strong caramel notes in taste rather than bitter spicey bite which I usually find with anejo Has a slight bite that comes with anejo, but sweet flavour balances it out and makes it very smooth Very enjoyable!!

The aroma cooked agave, nutty. The palate dried fruits, vanilla, caramel and hint of chocolate, wood (oak) is definitely present. The flavor lingers medium to long. The higher proof It’s brings out rich and bold flavors of this juice. I purchased this in Dallas, Texas for $99.99, even at $120 the price point is solid. I definitely do recommend it.

Aroma: Very nice and clean aromas of cooked agave, dried fruit, and a slight vanilla sweetness. Taste: Sweet on the tip of the tongue, creamy smokiness with a flavor of cooked agave and pepper. Finish: Dried fruit and cooked agave flavor fill the palate, coupled with oak, pepper, and a slight vanilla/caramel sweetness. Overall: Was looking forward to trying this one, it’s an excellent tequila. It’s impressive what Cascahuín is able to do with an additive-free tequila like this one. A unique extra añejo that is still clearly tequila. One of my favorites.

An initial heat that opens up nicely. Lightly sweet, peppery, spicy yet smooth all the way through with a bit of a fiery finish. Quite delicious.
