Very expensive, but one of the best XAs out there. Awesome nose. Flavor of stewed fruits, chocolate and agave. Huge finish with just the right balance of oak.

Sweet agave, whiskey, honey, caramel, vanilla, butterscotch, smoke, leather, citrus and fruit. This is the extra anejo others are judged against, and for a price range of $140 to 160, this is well worth it.

This doesn’t require a lot of words, it’s on point and should be respected as an elite product. Still some agave left in there unbelievably.

Dark rich color. Ripe fruit, dried fruit, peach notes, dark spices and oak. A lot of aromas going on. A definite olive note mingling with the butterscotch undercurrent. Taste: Buttery, pitted fruit, pepper with some bite. Finish lasts for ages. It is an assertive tequila.

Probably my favorite XA and I would rate it higher if it wasn’t so expensive.

Still my favorite XA. At $140 a liter it's a bargain. The aroma of layer after layer of dried fruit and oak make it delicious in the aroma and during the taste. The finish lasts and lasts with a soft bite to remind you that it's still tequila.

This Tapatio came to the US by special order from England, after a small group of us had found out that this was basically Excelencia, although it came in an añejo bottle. This tequila has a great nose, with notes of citrus and cooked brown sugar. Sweet and peppery, the taste is big and complex! My favorite part is the finish as it goes on for days and ends with a really nice earth tone that only an agave spirit can produce!

For whatever reason it took me a bit to calibrate to this one. Smells like butterscotch, caramel, spice, and Christmas Eve. Perfect little numb after each sip. Extra points that Tapatio puts it all in a 1L bottle. Yes I would drink again. Yes I would recommend to a friend.

A full bodied XA, dried candied fruit, with nutty characteristics, the undertones are sweet yet subtle. Complex flavors of caramel, vanilla and wood. Liter bottle makes it a good value.

Was looking for a while for this bottle as we don’t have it here. Great gentle smell with oak, strong taste of oak and great finish. Full of flavor once exhaling. I would definitely recommend this tequila to any whiskey/rum lover and anyone that fancy’s an oaky tequila. As the bottle is 1L would make this a high level medium priced bottle.

With over 70 bottles in my collection, I consider this one of the finest. The best Extra Anejo I have experienced to date...if there are better, can't wait to find them.

Gorgeous color. Wood/oak, pine needles, agave, friut and forest floor (in that order) on the nose. The palate has dark chocolate, cherries, plums and peaches, dried fruits and nuts. There is a nice, long finish that gives off some heat in the way back of the throat. Carlos made an outstanding XA with this one. It will set you back some pesos, but the quality is commensurate with the price.

I had the pleasure of meeting Carlos Camarena when I purchased this bottle. He said it was the best batch he’s made to date! One of the best tequilas I’ve had for sure.

What Are People Really Looking for in Extra Añejo Tequilas?

Other than the oak, what are extra añejo drinkers looking for? Do they still want the presence of agave, or are they hoping that extra time in the barrel will bring more complexity? Or, is it something else entirely? We conducted a blind taste test with 2
