Fruity, floral, honey, and earthy on the nose, the juicy aroma is fantastic! On taste I also get some light vanilla, oak, and agave to balance out the flavors. Like all 1579 the oak complements and doesn’t overpower. Combined with the softness from oxygenation and this is really easy and pleasant to drink.

Delicious, a great product from El Pandillo. Hits all the right notes that Terralta XA hits for me with the minerality blending so good with the vanilla, oak and cooked agave. The oxygenation is clearer on the finish making it dangerously easy to drink like Volans. Nevertheless it still keeps you thinking and wanting to taste more.

Smells exactly like Terralta xa, light honey, earthy scent, more intense flavors than the repo. Excellent xa with strong agave notes.

Don Vicente XA Right away I’m met with that fruity highland agave scent. It’s stone fruits (cherry, peaches, mangos and plums) and then the buttery cooked agave. There are hints of oak, caramel and vanilla. The nose is so juicy that it’s hard to let it rest. The buttery cooked agave and baking spices (nutmeg, anise & vanilla) hit right up front. There’s some light pepper notes and oak notes that follow. A nice alcohol tingle is present and the agave sweetness carries from beginning to end. There’s nothing dry about this excellent XA. This XA is NOM1579 goodness. Its mature estate grown agave that’s cooked in Felipe’s unique stone ovens before it’s shredded by Igor and then crushed by Felipestein. It’s then fermented in jacketed stainless steel tanks with before being double distilled in copper stills. After that the tequila is oxygenated to help unify the flavors and soften the mouthfeel. Currently this tequila is only in Texas but its worth seeking. Salud!

By production notes, this is similar to Terralta extra añejo, but with oxygenation. This is definitely a different product, though. The nose is different, and to me, has a very nice apple characteristic (may be perceived differently by others). I have found this apple like note common amongst aged products out of El Pandillo, which I really like, but it's much more vibrant in this one. The peppery notes present in the blanco and reposado are less pronounced as more oak characteristics take over from the long aging process; these oak characteristics are still quite subtle, likely due to the subsequent use of older barrels, which is common at El Pandillo. The finish is medium in length and the peppery notes come out for a bit.
