Another great expression from Volans. Great nose with agave first and foremost (nice for an XA). Vanilla on the nose with oak and caramel. Nice fruity nose. With cinnamon. Love this nose. Nice sweet agave to taste. Vanilla and oak follow with fruity notes. I taste butterscotch and cinnamon a touch of lime and honey. Great tasting tequila Mouthfeel is is nice and balanced. Not to thin not too oily. A bit of alcohol on the finish. I very much recommend this XA.

Absolutely gorgeous nose. A face full of sweet agave and floral notes. Minerality, citrus and mint. I also get a hint of peach. Nice on the palate and again a nice sweet agave punch. While not so much on the nose, I do get black pepper on the tongue. Definitely citrus and mint. Less floral on the palate but still there. I am getting some brine/saltiness but only lightly. It is a nice touch. Great clean finish with medium viscosity. There are so many great blancos in this price range. Everyone will have their opinions and palate differences. You owe it to yourself to try this one. I could easily see how this might become your favorite blanco at this price point

Nose: sweet agave / pepper / citrus / spearmint/ flora / Taste: sweet cooked agave bomb!! / cinnamon/ banana/ pear / green apple / orange/ lime / lemongrass/ spearmint/ cream soda / hint of alcohol Finish: sweet and cinnamon spicy linger throughout an incredibly wet mouthfeel that is clean / like a highly filtered water that’s cool / minty fresh on final swallow that lasts and lasts and lasts… This still strength takes full advantage of the higher abv to provide an enormous sweet agave bomb that blows up your palate only to be held together by spicy cinnamon notes that linger until your next sip. This is a fantastic high proof.

Nose: agave sweet/ vanilla/ cinnamon: / banana/ pear / apple / bell pepper/ tea / floral / chocolate/ Taste: sweet agave / vanilla/ oak / earth / cinnamon/ banana/ red apple/ hint of lime / peppermint / tea / Finish: clean water feel / almost no viscosity / lingering sweetness and mint / vanilla aftertaste This extra anejo has an excellent smoothness and provides big single taste notes, in a relaxed way. Not a flavor bomb….the great flavors are harmonious and not overly powerful, but what’s there is very enjoyable.

Nose: oak /earth / vanilla/ cherry / herbal/ tea / hay / tobacco/ leather / lactic / tiny bit of smoke / rubber Taste: cooked agave / pepper / vanilla/ oak / cinnamon/ apple / orange peel / mint / nutmeg/ molasses Finish: sweet and bitter/savory finish that ends completely on a fresh note of clean water and mint This is the single barrel from barrel 10. There was one unwanted nose note that had a ‘rubber’ smell, but it didn’t come through in the taste. There’s a lot of flavor considering the basic 40% abv.

Okay I really like stuff from 1579. To be honest, I usually go for high proofs and while I certainly like reposados they aren’t my first grab. This repo is so good that I can’t hold down my excitement. A good friend of mine bought this for me and now I need to find something equally as amazing to give him. The nose is so good that it is hard to start sipping it because I can’t stop smelling it. Oh it has the agave but it is also fruity and oaky with cinnamon, caramel and vanilla. If you have a friend that is new into this additive free artisanal tequila, give them a taste of this one. This tequila is so easy to sip and has wonder sweet agave with hints of oak and vanilla and caramel and butter. This will show a Casamigos lover just how good an AF tequila can taste without the additives. If you can’t tell, I absolutely love this one.

Nice strong aroma of cooked agave with jalapeño, vanilla, cedar, and corn syrup. Flavor, some initial heat up front which subsides into agave, cinnamon, chiles, then warm vanilla, black pepper, a touch of anise then a heated finish.

This is a great food XA, the next time I do my chocolate crème brûlée this will be served with it.
