Pitted fruit, raisin, and licorice oak aromas with slightly sweet agave, burnt caramel and honey flavors and a bright, pungent finish brought by the high proof (48.8%). A dry extra añejo that is not over-oaked, despite 8 years in the barrel. (I’ve always appreciated Ocho’s light touch when it comes to aging.) A tightly packed XA with a high-proof kick.

The color of this Extra Añejo is very light, which is a visual clue that it may still contain agave, not just oak. In this case, it does. Cooked agave, hay, dried fruit, tobacco and slight peach aromas. At 48.8% abv, the alcohol is also in the nose but isn’t overly aggressive. Alcohol doesn’t dominate the flavor at all, as I find this easy to drink. Cooked agave, molasses, and vanilla flavor. Really long cooked agave on the finish. Nicely done, not over-done.
