Aroma: Fantastic aroma. I get cherry, almond, vanilla, mineral/dust, and pineapple. Each time I go back I get something different. Flavor: A lot more mild than I was expecting. I get cherry and vanilla very strongly on the front and it finishes with clove and cinnamon. Finish: Because it's so light, the finish is fairly light as well. There's it's still incredibly smooth but I wish it was ramped up a bit.

This is a very light XA. The aroma has a distinct sweetness that comes from fruit notes rather than the traditional caramel or chocolate of so many XAs. There is also a clear minerality/earthy aroma that is a characteristic of El Pandillo tequilas. The flavor is surprisingly light with clear fruit and vanilla. The finish is brief. The presentation of these bottles is impressive. The full wood case has a leather strap on top and metal latch on front. Lift the latch and the box opens to display the two bottles plus a small drawer with a branded drinking glass. The bottles have a beaded skull on the front that looks great. 9/11/2017

Aroma: Strong vegetal and earthy aroma. Lots of wet clay, pepper, and snap peas. Incredibly complex and exactly what I love in the aroma of a solid classic Blanco. Flavor: Tons of snap peas and grass, hints of pepper and cinnamon. Kind of spicy but in the exact right way. Not overpowering or hot. It's very smooth and complex. Finish: Finish is a little soft mostly hangs around in the back of your mouth but nowhere else. Wish it had a little more but tons of flavors linger. Value: Although a little pricey it has to be noted that the bottles and display are incredible. Doesn't add to the tequila but I won't knock it as much as I would a similarly priced Blanco in not as nice of a presentation.

Aroma is strongly vegetal with clear agave flavor. There is also a significant dirt/earth note as well as a bit of brine. The flavor is true to the aroma - rich, green vegetal flavors with noticeable agave and a bit of salinity/brine. The finish has good flavor but lasts a relatively short time. The presentation of these bottles is impressive. The full wood case has a leather strap on top and metal latch on front. Lift the latch and the box opens to display the two bottles plus a small drawer with a branded drinking glass. The bottles have a beaded skull on the front that looks great. 9/11/2017
