This is ALL about the barrel, if you’re a Bourbon or Scotch fan then you are gonna be a fan! Spicy and punchy, this kicks your ass from start to finish.

This is quite wood influenced from the 5 years spent in the barrel and the higher bottling proof. Very heavy rye whiskey presence in the taste which reminds me of the aged Celestial Tequila products aged in Wild Turkey Rye barrels. I know there are fairly pristine WT Rye barrels in the NOM 1480 barrel warehouse along with another rye and some other not often seen whiskey distillery barrels as well. It has a very rich flavor of rye whiskey from the extended aging and the 50% ABV. If rye whiskey barrel aged tequila is what you seek, go for this at La Cata in Tequila, Jalisco MX. Edit to add that I have tasted this XA to the tune of a half bottle over the last month, both from a Glencairn glass and Romeo's jarrito to form this opinion.
