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.

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.

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.

This tastes amazing... huge amounts of cooked agave, caramel, vanilla and oak with a silky smooth finish. Delicious and to my palate a fantastic dessert tequila. Salud!

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.

Lots of wood, earth and fruit. Very complex flavor profile. Smooth and aromatic. One of the best tequilas I’ve had.

An amazing tequila. It is uber smooth with flavors of roasted agave, chocolate, caramel, and pepper. I had batch 1 which was distilled in 1996 and bottled in 2013, meaning this might be 100% tahona crushed considering La Alteña didn’t install a roller mill until some time at or a bit after 1998

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.

Alcohol & agave on the nose; light, cooked agave on the front of the tongue; butterscotch; caramel & vanilla on the backend; good value at $160.00 with the liter bottle;

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

The nose was fantastic! The first sip was great and complex . After letting it breath a while, the oak just took over and no other flavors were detected. Highly disappointed as I wanted this to be upper level. Maybe I had a bad lot?

So I do t like the taste of alcohol in general and now a days I dilute it with distilled water but always do a shot when I first open bottle. Most tequilas I have to add juice or something in addition to the distilled water to make me not cringe after taking a sip.. But this tequila went down nicely with just distilled water. ( about 2 shots worth in a 16oz glass with distilled water). The aroma was pleasant fruity. Normally I hate the smell of tequila as well

It has a minty, pear and woody aroma and flavour like El Tesoro Añejo and Chinaco Negro (Extra Añejo).

Beautiful expression of tequila. Scent of fresh cut wood. Easy to drink. Mildly sweet but not cloying. Essence of Werthers Original caramels.

While we note our rating is lower than average, we don't mean to put anyone off this tequila. Definitely try it! It reminds us of a guy who's been out at a campfire and is coming to get a hug. It seems like a tequila master's rite of passage to make an extra Anejo that conforms to a set piece where all the key elements are there. This is that creation, only we like some others a bit more.

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.

Dark amber/copper color with thick legs. Spiced apple, cigar box & pumpkin spice on the nose. Mouthfeel explodes on palate and sides of tongue but not overly oily. Caramelized pear, custard, & cooked agave predominate the flavor profile. Finish is long with heavy cedar & cognac notes.

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
