Aroma of cooked agave with strong cedar notes (I know it was aged in oak), then some oak, mint, spices. Flavor of agave, briwn sugar, light caramel, mint, cinnamon. For sure can taste the El Tesoro profile. Well balanced, not over woody. A gem.

This Lot 1 was from Felipe Camarena's last barrels, so if you have the 1st lot, treasure and savor it. Not as dark as his other XAs but still a worthy bottle to continue his legacy. Agave, fruity, herbaceous, buttery, butterscotch, caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, spices, not too oaky. Nicely balanced. Some lot 1s may still be out there and the price seems to be going up on these. I grabbed a case upon release at 69 and now I see them at up to 169...

Tried this during a Tequila Tasting event. After going through a Blanco, Reposado, and an Añejo this was the ultimate price. It was amazing. Creamy, caramel, dark chocolate finish. Not too oaky. One of the best tequilas out there.

Aroma: Light, clean aromas of honeyed cooked agave, minerality, and sweet vanilla. Taste: Naturally sweet agave and honey, with the same clean minerality. Finish: A tasty conclusion of flavorful agave notes combined with vanilla, light caramel, and cinnamon. The flavor lingers for a while and does not lose any of its pleasantness. Overall: A superb, well-crafted tequila.

Nose: Floral with tropical fruit. Ripe melons and bananas. A hint of tart apricot and minerals. Warming vanilla and almond aromas. Gentle white pepper and an herbal element trying to peek through. Flavors: Medium pepper heat initially crowds out some of my earlier floral and tropical impressions. As my palate acclimatizes, I pick up salty caramel, some nuttiness and a coffee note. Also some honey, licorice and delicate oaking. Lots of sweet agave still on center stage here. Some slight bitterness creeps in.

Nicely balanced xa, slight heat with light barrel notes. Prefer the Paradiso 5 yr over this expression

Incredible XA. A real joy. Vanilla notes while keeping the agave. Very easy to drink.

Another great one from 1139. First, the light color is just amazing for an XA. Then, the aroma is filled with vegetal and mineral notes and virtually no classic barrel. The agave is also clearly present in the aroma. The flavor opens with a nice pepper spice and flows to present the sweet agave and subtle mineral notes. The finish is medium length with a slight bitter almond taste. This is a great tequila. 12/24/2020 - 8th Annual Xmas XA tasting

Super clear for an extra Añejo. Really warm, inviting aroma. Agave, slight pepper, caramel, butterscotch, citrus and a little lactic on the nose. Agave carries through nicely on the pallet. Definitely get oak, mild cinnamon, vanilla and a little smoke. The finish has a little oaky bitterness with semisweet chocolate coming through and ends with a hint of almond and mint. Great expression but probably not what some would expect from a tequila that’s been aged 5 years. The agave still shines here and it’s complemented nicely by the barrel.

Aroma : Sweet cooked agave with dried fruit, oak, and caramel. There is also some earth and mineral tones as well. Taste : Light bodied with a notable agave presence for an XA. There is some fruit, oak, and caramel here from the nose, as well as some butter and hazelnut. Finish : Long with sweet barrel notes, as well as a certain grassy quality that melds well with the earth and minerality. Another great expression from El Tesoro. Now I just need to get my hands on one of their special edition XA's.

Used a jarrito glass for this expression and it was the right choice. An explosion of aromas that stay around for a good while. Impressed on how much cooked agave flavor I could taste accompanied of black pepper and oak towards the end. Very well done XA.

No nonsense clean-tasting tequila that still pulls the agave forward with layers of oak, vanilla, honey, cinnamon, and orange peel. For an XA the oak isn’t overpowering in flavor or color. This is a near perfect XA.

This is tied with Carlos other perfection, Tapatio XA for the greatest nose ever. Caramel, agave and sweet vanilla get chased off by butterscotch and cinnamon. The taste is perfectly similar. No burn no need for anything but enjoyment. This is excellence

Light in color for an Extra Añejo, though not as light as cousin Ocho, this has a very powerful aroma in a jarrito glass. Cedar wood, agave creme brule/burnt sugar, cinnamon all set up the first sip. Pepper, both agave and black were the first impression on sipping, followed by caramelized agave, stone fruit, and oak. The wood is well done and allows the agave to come through the layers of aging. A long satisfying finish that is all about flavor and those layers and less about alcohol, though there is some of that with some nice lip buzz. Very, very well done as you might expect from La Alteña. I like that the bottle label pays homage to Don Felipe Camarena Orozco the founder of what is NOM 1139 in 1937.

El Tesoro XA Nose: Vegetal Agave Earthy Mineral Floral Anise Light barrel Almond Light vanilla Taste: Clean fresh agave Light oak Nuttiness Pepper Grassy Light carmel/barrel Very mild pear Finish: Medium to long finish really impressive for an 80 proof Peppery Agave Grassy Slight burn Earthiness Cinnamon Conclusion: El Tesoro is a classic… legendary in the tequila world and I am glad the brand is still repping hard! This tequila is what I’m going to refer to as a real man’s tequila. TBH, I’m not sure 100% what that even means, but I think it sums it up:)! Based off my tasting notes, I have to say it’s fantastic (along with the entire El Tesoro line. It’s well rounded, priced appropriately, and brings a level of complexity that most 80 proof tequila misses. The color is lighter than expected given what I am tasting however it delivers across the board. This bottles brings it: from vegetal mineralogy and floral rich agave on the nose to a nice barreled earthiness compounded by an amazingly long complex finish! Absolutely a must have-like all the El Tesoro offerings.

nose: chocolate, agave, spicy and smoky palate: Sweet agave and chocolate notes. Hints of cinnamon, smoke and bourbon. finish: Wonderful agave chocolate aftertaste. This is definitely the gold standard of XA. $100 for this bottle is a Steal. Can't wait for more.

aroma: toasted agave, marshmallow flavor: agave, marshmallow, and bourbon. enjoyable. straightforward and clean like other ETs finish: lingers nicely, soft. overall really nice sip, took a few points off for value - there are similar tasting anejos that can be had for much less came back to add points to aroma and taste after the bottle opened up. notes of chocolate, like s’mores. very delicious, but points off for price. i’ve seen it in AZ for $170 and in CA for $110 - ET could ditch the box and it would be a fair price at ~$100 but i get the gift appeal. coming back 3rd time to add point to finish - gets even better the further it opens up. really nice. batch 5 better than batch 6 - deeper flavor, richer caramel color. excellent.
