Hey, this is nice. Dried fruit, butter, vanilla, cherry and oak aromas and flavors. The higher ABV (50%) doesn’t seem overwhelming, and adds to the intensity of the buttery finish.

Nose: dried fruit, dark cherries, orange peel, citrus, vanilla, cinnamon, oak, notes of cider, earthy, and some agave in the background Flavor: heat on entry, buttery mouth feel, vanilla, clove, cinnamon, toffee, dried cherries, hints of fennel, some cooked agave, oak, and some saltiness Finish: long, peppery, dried fruit, and light barrel spices Points off for price

Don’t let the dark color of this XA fool you. It is not an oak bomb. Aromas: Intensely fruity. Cherry, honey crisp apples and citrus. A touch of sweet apple cider. Dried fruit, nuts, vanilla and almond cream marry with mellow barrel spice notes. An undercurrent of earthy minerals in the background. This has a very round and polished nose. Flavor: The mellow, elegant aromas do not prepare your palate for the first sip of this 50% ABV XA. After an initial ethanol blast, the heat turns silky. Vanilla, leather, burnt almond and toffee notes surface. Fruit and agave regain center stage. Allspice, cloves, cinnamon and a hint of anise contribute another layer of interest. It is buttery and very viscous. Salinity and a mouthwatering umami nuance tempt you to chew this. A lazy and leisurely finish. Well done.

Every single component of this expression is very harmonious. Complexity level is high in a very good way. Very elegant profile too. Only negative thing is the $$$ Dried fruitiness (apple, cherry, banana, vanilla) Spices/nuts (caramelized walnuts, cinnamon, clove, anise) Lactic nuances (butter, butterscotch, cajeta) Rancio (leather, vintage smell)

Would have been higher but I have the $500 single barrel one and can’t really justify the 100% markup over the regular XA without trying that one as well. Amazing tequila though. Keeping it filled with argon and Parafilmed for special occasions.

Wonderfully sweet and fruity while maintaining the agave flavor. The aroma is beautiful with a nice oily mouthful and complex flavors. Expensive but worth it for what you get.

One hell of a high proof extra añejo thick, creamy, viscous, and loaded with flavors like cooked agave, bananas, apricots, vanilla, Dulce de leche, butter cake, brown sugar, Mexican hot chocolate, cinnamon, green chili peppers, almonds, baking spices, and a little dried fruit.

this is my favorite American oak extra anejo. nose. super ripe cooked agave with cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamon, almond paste, apricot, vanilla, caramel, and coco nibs tastes. viscous mouthfeel with super ripe agave, apricot, cherry, oak, butternut squash, vanilla, sweet potatoes, vanilla, butterscotch ripple, caramel, bittersweet chocolate and pomegranate. one of the most complex and axing tasting extra anejos I have had to date. a must have for any extra anejo lover.

Great nose on this. Agave, butter, butter scotch ,baking spices,nuts,vanilla,fruit and caramel. Flavor of Agave, Oak, butter,butterscotch, nuts, dark chocolate,fruit, vanilla, caramel,Has some heat at 100 proof.I like that,what Tequila should taste like,should have some heat. Nice balance, flavor opens up more as you drink. Nice long finish. Price is on high side,I took some points for that. Excellent American white oak barrel XA.

All I can say is wow. If you have a chance to get this special buy, do it. Only 180 bottles made at 100proof absolutely fantastic. Nose- cooked agave comes through with light oak, vanilla, light fruit like coconut-milk, slight cinnamon... and a lot more Taste- agave forward light oak, slight fruit, light pepper, and a sweetness from the agave and caramel on the backend. Can nose this for days, changes every 5min. Definitely complex.

Long finish. Definitely hot at 50% abv. Value is hurt by very high price.
