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.

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!

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

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)

Great aroma! Solid tequila, but strong alcohol and finish for an XA. I definitely prefer El Tesoro's standard XA!

This C33.945 2012 is delicious. Haven’t tried the new release Paradiso yet but the floral/tropical fruit nose & taste takes me to a tropical island every time! Love the delicate cognac barrel notes ...

Really tasty. On the nose, agave, cherry, oak, and a faint hint of caramel. When tasting, agave, caramel, and oak. Really liked it. For the price, definitely worth it. Highly recommend!

Seriously fruity nose, more oak than I prefer, but it’s an EA, so no surprise there :). Finish is cleaner than I expected, with agave and mineral notes.
