Nose: agave / vanilla/ chocolate/ banana/ melon/ hint of grapefruit/ tea/ nutmeg/ hazelnut/ molasses/ cream soda Taste: cooked agave sweetness bomb / vanilla/ caramel / pepper / earth / butter / banana/ pear / orange peel / anise / tea / spearmint Finish: clean rainwater finish with lingering vanilla and chocolate notes, some pepper spiciness, followed by a fresh chocolate mint sensation This anejo brings a lot of nose and flavor to the table. The chocolate notes are so nice. The flavors are all delicious, but being in the barrel may have muted some of them. It’s a very smooth enjoyable anejo.

Nose: floral/ agave sweet / vanilla/ chocolate: caramel/ pear / lime / tea / nutmeg/ hazelnut/ Taste: agave sweet / chocolate/ vanilla/ peppermint/ banana/ lemongrass/ tea / nutmeg / baking spice / molasses/ Finish: very bright and distinctive flavors linger in a very smooth and velvety mouthfeel. Chocolate just keeps coming back even when you think the finish has completely dissipated. This reposado has a chocolatey flavor and a velvet mouthfeel that just hangs on and keeps going. It’s a great sipper but that big chocolate note could make this a candidate for a dessert tequila. It also has a beautiful sweetness and a nice overall flavor.

Nose; agave / vanilla/ pepper / oak / apple/ pear / grapefruit/ lenongrass/ orange blossom/ chocolate / maple Taste: sweet agave and pepper blast / vanilla/ caramel/ cinnamon/ tea / pineapple/ peach / orange peel / peppermint Finish: sweet agave through and through/ clean low viscosity with an enjoyable peppery finish This extra anejo has some great nose and palate notes. The nose is weak compared to the blast of sweet and pepper on first through last taste. There aren’t very many barrel notes here and it may be that the agave and pepper blast just overwhelm any barrel tastes.

Nice nose filled with Agave. A good citrus smell. I get a hint of minerals and a touch of alcohol. The taste is quite pleasant but does come with a strong alcohol finish. For taste I get agave, minerals pepper and alcohol. Even with the strong alcohol presence this is a good HP. For me, a high proof done well enhances the flavor without extra alcohol burn. This should be the ultimate goal of a high proof in my opinion. I can easily recommend this one but be prepared for the alcohol forward bite.

5 Anos release. Nice nose and palate but a bit muted and not a lot going on for me personally. The 110 proof XA wows me.

Wow! This is fantastic. I could nose this all day as it is so well done. Beautiful vanilla, caramel and oak notes on the nose and palate but not overpowering and oh my that 110 proof is present in a delicious way on the palate and finish which lingers in a beautiful heat. I’m glad to have tried this.
