Pleasing nose of agave, earth and barrel spice. Nice mouth feel with some viscosity and the nose carries over to the taste with some added spice from alcohol and agave pepper. Some fading sweetness that turns to light bitter oak and tannic notes plus some alcohol.

A 5 year aged Extra Añejo this tequila has been showing up in Total Wine stores in my area (WA state). A nice golden amber this XA presents barrel spice and wood on the nose and a very bourbon forward, Jack Daniels?, taste that has little hint of sweetness. The color and taste indicate an honest product, with no manipulation by additive/s. The extended aging also has killed almost any agave in the taste and the rating reflects that lack. Still for the price AND the 5 year age it is worth a shot.

Baking Spice, cinnamon, rich butterscotch on the nose. Buttery caramel, with sweet agave notes. Very short crisp finish. No bite, but not a huge amount of complexity. Solid extra anejo for the price, but not overtly expressive. Would buy and definitely drink again.
