Bottle#771 Nose: Fruity agave leaps out at you on first whiff, with just the faintest trace of bourbon oak. There are incredible spice and fruit notes: dark berries, ripe Rainier cherries, vanilla, citrus, white pepper and cedar shavings. Minerals and earth in the background. Flavor: Jerk seasonings, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, red pepper flakes, salted caramel, almonds and leather in an oily, mouth coating experience. This is thick and creamy and kissed with honey. The 55 months in the barrel has in no way obscured the rich agave that was clearly meant to be showcased. Pretty close to perfection.

Aroma : Cooked agave, oak, black pepper, caramel and some light fruit. Taste : Cooked agave still comes through after 5 years in barrel. I also get some black pepper, oak, butterscotch and leather, and the texture is full and oily. Finish : Long with more agave and some light alcohol heat. FINALLY got a bottle of this after looking for so long. This a wonderful agave forward XA. Priced a bit high, but if you're a G4 fan it's worth it.

One of the best examples of Los Altos tequila. Nice floral, agave forward, butter, light spice and pepper with a little citrus...just absolutely amazing

Aroma : Cooked agave and floral notes with mint and citrus. For an extra añejo that was definitely a surprise. Not much oak or aged notes to speak of. Taste : Crisp underlying agave and light oak. Caramel and almond/hazelnut predominate with some degree of baking spice. This is lightly sweet and somewhat spicy. Oily and complex too. Finish : Long and prolongs all the taste notes with some stronger baking spice. Top tier extra añejo. I hope I'll be able to find the "55" version soon because this was a hard one to put down.

Aroma : Cooked agave, grass, apricot/peach fruity notes, and cinnamon. Taste : Light in character but full bodied with oils and cooked agave, light oak, vanilla and black pepper. Some earth notes as well. Finish : Long lasting with previous taste notes with some stronger agave here, and some almond and toffee notes. This is a really nice Añejo. However, this would probably score in the 90+ range if there had been more of the fruit notes on the taste and finish.

Aroma : Cooked agave, black pepper and earth. Small amount of oak and cinnamon here. Taste : Agave and fairly peppery. Much like the aroma there is trace amounts of oak and cinnamon. Some baking spices as well. This is light but still oily. Finish : Long and peppery, but not so much like Siete Leguas Reposado. All flavors are prolonged here, with some cinnamon hotness on the way out. This is top quality, but it could do with more complexity.
