An outstanding extra Anejo from Felipe, solid flavors, agave forward, lingering finish. Looses a point or 2 for price ($600-$1000) Only 1000 bottles produced, great wood box / presentation

Excellent! The nose is fruity and very inviting, not over-oaked. I tasted more fruit—probably dried cherries or plums, along with leather, cinnamon, and slight bitter oak. Sweeter vanillas and caramels are hardly noticeable. It’s actually quite light for its age. Rare special release comes with a HEFTY price that knocks points off, but otherwise a delicious XA.

Fortunate enough to have tried this along with Felipe & Oscar at El Pandillo. Aroma: NOM 1579 fingerprint with a touch of mastery and legendary elegance. Initial notes are floral, fruity and vintage (think of an old cellar) As soon as you serve it you can indulge in the aroma with harmonious nuances of red dried fruits (cherry and raisins), vanilla, caramel, cajeta envinada, walnut shell and oak. Accompanied by rancio oak notes (oxidized tannins) that will take you to when you walk down to El Pandillo's cellar. Taste: Agave sweetness crafted by nuances of vanilla, butterscotch, baking spices (nutmeg, clove, slightly cinnamon, and allspice). Mid way you will find notes of flowers, red fruits (dried cherries), and citrusy lingers of orange peel and bitterness of grapefruit, along with white pepper and clove spiced sensation. At the end, vintage flavors of tobacco, leather and barrel spice will mellow down the previous rollercoaster. Great XA and looking to get my hands on a bottle soon!

Lot LEXP01XA43, bottled on 31/10/2022, this is the Mexican version, a total of 250 bottles were released for the Mexican national market, I was told this is the exact same lot/tequila that was released for the U.S., U.K., Japan, Australia and Taiwanese market. Color: light yellow. Aroma: I let this tequila sit for 20 minutes to oxygenate to open up, intense sweet cooked agave! Slightly minty, stone fruit sweetness, a hint of vanilla, almost no wood note which is great because it allows agave & other much more interesting notes to shine through, fresh and lively for a 6 y.o. XA! Light cinnamon sweetness. Small white jasmine flower aroma and sweetness! Very aromatic. Palate: lively & fresh sweet cooked agave! Stone fruit sweetness, minty freshness, good sweet, sour and minty balance, resinous sweetness. I can feel light wood and vanilla notes through retronasal which are very subtle and don’t bother, slightly earthy at the end. Finish is medium to long, sweet cooked agave sweetness with mint freshness and a touch vanilla sweetness lingers! 300th rating.

This is really fruity on the nose. Typical of G4, the 6 year XA is very agave forward, not much barrel flavor. It gets points off for being so pricey!

Was lucky enough to try it at El Pandillo with El Ingeniero Felipe Camarena and his staff. It definitely is another outstanding solid creation out of NOM 1579. On the nose, sweet cooked agave, lightly citrusy fruity, light caramel (cajeta), oak, matching the pállate. With a long delicious finish.

Floral and fruity with hints of spices and citrus peel zest. There is leather or tobacco leaf. The barrel influence is vanilla with nutmeg. Bittersweet, long, finish with some of the familiar G4 pepper still standing after 6 years underground at El Pandillo.
