Tried in a Riedel. Let it rest for 15 min before tasting. I love the color. It’s a rusty amber goldish color. Aroma: vanilla, maple, caramel, orange rind, black cherry, and dried fruit. Little to no alcohol coming through for being 100 proof. Flavor: creamy entry with a dried fruit, baking spice taste, a bit of some sweetness of caramel along with a nice heat that builds, a slight woody, burnt, bitterness likely due to the length of time in the barrel. Finish: a warmth of the alcohol heat but not overpowering, the heat builds up and has a long linger. You taste all the flavor on the side of you mouth as well as your throat. Left a numbness on the tip of the tongue. Overall, great tequila for 14 years in the barrel. The time in the barrel does not take away from taste.

The best tequila ever! Aged for 14 years and still has an tequila flavor profile. Tons of aromas and flavors evolving from cooked agave, caramel, pepper, apricot, oranges, citrus, mushrooms, and vanilla frosting. Got this for a similar price as Tears of Llorona and this is cheaper than Fuenteseca 10+ year tequilas.

For a 14 year tequila this wasn't as oak heavy as I thought it would be. Def notes of vanilla on the forefront with oak heat on the finish. Letting it sit for 15-20 mins helped tame the heat. A few drops of water helps tame as well.

Earthy, smoky, vanilla and oak. Brown sugar and berries on finish. Pretty good.

Because of the extremely high brix level, some sweetness comes through after this was aged 14 years in barrels. There's some heat, being that it's 100 proof, but overall if you let it sit a little, it's very bold and tasty. Aromas of caramel, light vanilla, spice, alcohol, sweet whiskey/oak, brown sugar, toffee, apricot, light roasted nuts, light leather, and light smoke, with some fruit presence. Taste was medium oils, with caramel, honey, vanilla, apricot and spice with light nuts, finishing in a medium to long finish.

A wonderful experience at high proof this XA is aged for 14, yes 14 years!! and still has an undercurrent of agave along with the unmistakable Jack Daniels bourbon profile of stone fruit and toffee along with vanilla and caramel from the oak. More please...
