Plenty of cooked agave in the aroma along with light caramel, fruit and a little citrus. The cooked agave is also present in the flavor but somewhat overwhelmed with baking spices and heat. There is also just a hint of caramel sweetness at the open before the spicy heat takes over. Long, warm finish. The 48.8 ABV on this one seems more hot than the 50.0 on the Alquimia and may be just a bit much for my taste. 12-24-2019 7th Annual Xmas XA tasting

Bottle #5, Barrel 01 Nose: The aroma is special: round and comforting, but punchy. Tropical fruit, pineapple, peach and a floral note. Vanilla, cardamom, coffee and light butterscotch. There is oak here and subtle cedar notes - but restraint has been given to respect the agave that still shines through. Flavor: Silky, buttery smooth texture, but carries a potent spice zing. Citrus, green peppercorns, butterscotch. There is a dessert quality to this XA. Similar to a rich Mexican flan? At 48.8% ABV, this does not present “too hot”. But be warned, as easy as it is to sip, it will sneak up on you. Finish has staying power, with pepper and spice zip and offsetting creamy agave mouth feel.

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.

This is an amazing Tequila and would be worthy of a mid 90s if it wasn’t so pricey. I can’t believe that it’s been aged 8 yrs 8 mo and continues to retain significant roasted agave flavor.
