On the nose, it’s fruit. Some butterscotch, im getting the oak. Some citrus, a little bit of chocolate. Almost like those Cointreau chocolates but not as sweet. A little bit of banana. The palate is…tantalizing. This goes down like silk. I’m getting some nuts, cinnamon, caramel. The agave is light but enough is there to let you know you’re drinking a fine tequila. Definitely some fruitiness, that banana note from the nose is there. This is a rock solid, delicious XA. A little pricy, but very, very good.

Oak, cooked agave and cherry or pitted fruit on the nose with hints of orange and vanilla… cooked agave and fruity on the mouth with some black pepper…. Some what complex and full of body

Not too much of a difference between the multi- colored Paradisos from 2016 and on and the newer brown packaging. Both have similar profiles on nose and palate. Warm agave, mocha, candied walnuts, nutty, citrus, figs, cinnamon, apple pie, butterscotch, vanilla, banana, tapioca... so complex and superb balance with a beautiful lasting linger. The older ones especially the Denton bottles are true treasures. The pre-2010s are a few notches above the current releases. One of the best XAs made.

Really like this sipper. 5 yr XA light on oak notes. Sweet cooked agave. Great finish and after taste. Incredibly balanced.

Aroma : Tropical fruits, citrus, and light herbs meld well with sweet cooked agave. There is the smallest amount of oak too. Taste : Agave and tropical fruits are the main characters here. There is also some underlying cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, butterscotch, and a unique earthiness/minerality as well. Finish : Long lasting and balanced with more butterscotch and light pepper. Note that this review is for the newer label of Paradiso. If I do find an older bottling, I'll update this review to include it.

C series bottle. Very nice blend of sweetness and spice. Finishing with a Balanced herbal, buttery notes that stick around for a while. a 5yr XA over all.

El Tesoro Paradiso is an extra Añejo that has been aged for 5 years in French oak ex-Cognac barrels. It has a light honey color and an inviting nose. I smell the sweetness from the cooked agave and then there are some light fruit notes and a hint of smoke. I taste sweet buttery agave, minerals and a separate alcohol that must be attributed to the Cognac. The finish is butterscotch and a peppery brine with some oak notes. Its complex but light on the pallet in a good way. I recommend trying this product if you have the opportunity. Salud!

New Label- It's a 5 year french oak cognac barrel aged tequila, which gives a lot of fruit (apricot), sweetness, herbal, smoke and spice, and some nutmeg. I really like it. A solid deal for 129.99

Have this neat at Señor Tequila. Excelente taste and finish, with agave, fruits, tropical fruits, vanilla, flowers, banana, cherry flavors that transcend into lingering taste and a great finish. $12/ shot

It’s bold. Smells like oak barrels, then mangos, oranges and cloves. Flavors are layered. Getting wood, herbs, especially anise, giving way to the cooked agave, spices and dried fruit. Complex and quite delicious.

2000 Denton inport... Great aroma, you can pull the cognac right off the nose. Tropical fruit, plenty of cherry, but not overly sweet. Finished clean, not super long. Very enjoyable.

Nose: Tropical fruits, vanilla and flowers are the first wave. Then comes agave, spices, over ripe pineapples and citrus. Lively. Flavors are singing! Licorice, cinnamon, sweet agave, ripe cantaloupe and vanilla offset with pepper. Great balance. Finish: nice retro hale. I could drink this all night, if I could afford it!

Aroma: Very complex on the nose. I get hints of almond, cherry, clove and oak. Flavor: For me, the flavor has a lot of oak notes but you also get a lot of the complexity like the aroma. The main thing that stands out is the cherry. Finish: Smooth finish that lingers and leaves a nice dry feeling in your mouth.

Not good at all. Harsh, strong back, fruity, banana-y

Delicious sweet aroma that still retains agave aroma despite aging. Incredibly subtle sweet, agave flavor with lots of oaky tannin. Nice, easy finish with sweet agave flavor. 2017 UPDATE Aroma is an interesting blend of barrel - chocolate primarily - and sweetness. There is some agave present but it is subtle. Flavor begins with caramel sweetness and evolves with some black pepper and spice. Finish is medium to long. 12-24-2017 (Annual XA tasting)

Definitely a treat! Had the vintage Lot C series Paradiso, flavor wise it’s very complex mainly characterized by red dried fruits notes, then complemented by chocolate and citrusy nuances.

Amazing Nose!!! light agave, pear, cherry, tropical, light charred wood, tobacco, tahona minerality, butterscotch. Different everytime you go in and let it sit. Palate is a smooth heat and leans more towards the tobacco, wood, light butterscotch mid palate. smooth lingering finish despite heat up front. enjoyable oily mouthfeel. Slight let down compared to the nose.

The aroma reaches out immediately. It has chocolate, agave and caramel. Outstanding. The flavor has the oak intermingled with the agave and some residual caramel sweetness. The finish brings some pepper to go with the agave and some of the general barreling characteristics you find in an aged product. A very, very good expression.
