This anniversary release from 2007 takes it to another level right where the Paradisos left off. Agave punches you, then it opens up to dark chocolate, mocha, almond, orange zest, vanilla, cinnamon, marshmallow, melon, crumb cake, nutmeg, plantains, so rich and viscose. This is next level shit.

Thank you Lou Agave (Long Island Lou Tequila) for the opportunity to taste the 70th anniversary addition from 2007 and for sharing this amazing XA, great aromas and finish. Only 12,000 plus bottle made.

Wow, this was worth the wait. A little over 12k bottles made back in 2007 for the 70th anniversary, I’m finally getting my hands on a bottle 12 years later. This XA has some wonderful flavor with agave, orange, oak, and pepper. Really nice.

Aroma: Has a strong note of caramel and hints of almond and oak. Flavor: Very strong oak flavor with a lot of heat upfront. Finishes with a nice caramel note. Finish: It hangs around for a while in your mouth and slowly works it's way into your throat.

Aroma is intensely sweet and fruity. Aroma carries over directly into a sweet, fruity flavor with very subtle spice/heat. The flavor coats the tongue and lingers with a nice heat that diminishes the sweetness of the flavor. A definite end of the evening sipper. While XA is not my preference in tequila, this one is absolutely one of the best. 2017 UPDATE Nice complexity in the aroma that is not just sweetness - agave, citrus and menthol(?). Very nice. Flavor is again a fantastic blend - opens sweet and quickly moves to some fiery spice. All the complexity of the barrel is there too. Long, lingering finish. Definitely one of my favorite XAs. 12-24-2017 (Annual XA tasting) 70-75-80 side-by-side

A well crafted and well aged tequila. Not really a great value at $100+ but if you have the means this is a worthwhile bottle.

One of the best extra anejo tequilas ever to come out of the El Tesoro distillery.

Intense aroma of grapefruit and wood. Great for some, but not for me. However, this is a very well-done unique tequila, and I know plenty of people who think it's among the best they've ever tasted.

El Tesoro's 70th Aniversario is a great tequila that is very well balanced, with a ton of agave for a product that has been aged for 7 years. Notes of green olive, orange, and leather sit on top of a thick, earthy, agave core. The finish is long and complex, yet not overwhelming. But it is still slightly noticeable an hour after my last sip. There were not many of these bottles when it was released in 2007. From what I remember, there were 2007 cases released, which would be 12,042 bottles. Unlike many other "anniversary" releases, this really was a one time offering. So, I would highly recommend having a bottle or two in your collection - as well as any other tequilas made by NOM 1139!

This one is very interesting but amazing. Made by one of the best master distillers. Agave, oak spices, caramel, maybe an orange rind, light white pepper and some would say a touch or light pettiness. Very nice and complex but very mellow. This is a nice after dinner treat

One of my best tequilas. Mellow, banana-like aroma. The taste is gorgeous. Smokiness in the finish. Even when the glass is empty, I keep sniffing it because I don't want to waste time washing it.

Tasted watered down? Neighbor said it was 10 years in the bottle and special. Wasn’t terrible, just didn’t taste like anything. Wondering if someone did add water to it without him knowing. Barely any aroma.

Very sweet aroma Flavor begins with a smooth buttery taste immediately followed by spicy and smokey with a slight bitterness. Lingering aftertaste focuses on spicy but smoothes out quickly.

Tasted in Riedel glass on New Years Eve 2015. Fairly thick tears. Aroma is nice, inviting, cognac like with hints or dried fruit and burnt oranges. Nice medium golden color. Somewhat bourbon like in the first few sips with nuances of the aroma. Excellent taste, but expecting to be more complex. Not stellar, but a stand up limited production from El Tesoro. B++
