2015 La Latilla | Fucking phenomenal aroma, hard to believe you’re about to taste an extra Añejo! Loads of agave still can be found in every corner of my mouth, goes great with the hard kick in the ass on its way out.....this finished HOT! Another stunning product from Ocho.

2015 La Latilla | This may be the lightest colored Extra Añejo I’ve ever seen. (That’s a good sign that there’s still some agave left.) And there is! Aroma is very faint. Slight cream soda and vanilla, with cooked agave and anise. Flavor has a lot more agave than anything else. It has a sweetness to it that I like. Subtle and natural. Mouth feel has a medium thickness to it and the finish is slightly dry. Definitely an enjoyable tequila.

2015 La Latilla | Incredibly light for an XA - which I love. Instead of being overpowered by barrel notes it is layered, while still retaining some agave - an Ocho signature. Vanilla, bright citrus, and subtle cream soda with a sweet, rounded agave taste with a short peppery finish (hint of fusel oil). A very enjoyable tequila, but as an XA, with XA pricing, its subtleness may be overlooked by barrelheads expecting an explosion of flavors.

2015 La Latilla | Nose: The comforting scent found in a cedar chest. Tons of citrus tang: lemon, lime and faint grapefruit zest. Pineapple, vanilla, creamy agave brûlée, and a clean earthy aroma. A very bright tasting XA - no heavy oak lurking in the shadows. Impressive. Flavors: Zingy, (borderline hot) white pepper joins the robust citrus notes. Caramelized sugar coats your palate. Baking spice undercurrents. There are some tannic elements dancing on the back of my tongue, also strong Oaxacan black coffee laced with some good Mexican dark chocolate. Finish: Ripe pineapple and vanilla reassert themselves on the finish. A light kiss of butterscotch.

2012 El Refugio | Funny it took 3 tries to actually purchase this bottle as several sellers used it as a stock photo but shipped 2014 La Magueyera instead. Both Old Town and Mission did this. Not as pale as some earlier releases, this is still very light as an XA but has a depth of flavor that belies that color equals flavor. Agave, spice, caramel, creme brulee and more agave make this a treasure to savor.

2014 La Magueyera | As always with Ocho this is lightly touched by the barrel and agave dominates the flavor profile.

2014 La Magueyera | Nose: Bright vegetal and mineral notes quickly transition into sweeter notes of orange blossoms, vanilla and caramelized agave. A little smoke emerges as it opens up. Flavor: Butterscotch, cassis, white pepper, rich natural sweetness and counterpoint warm barrel spices. Finish brings to mind the aromas found in a still warm brick horno. Tingling cloves, nutmeg, citrus and pepper linger on... This tequila is not cheap - it is worthy of its price.

2007 El Vergel | Rating is for 2007 XA, the first that was released in the wonderful Ocho lineup. A very lightly aged product for a 3 year old XA this follows the whole Tomas Estes philosophy of minimal impact from the barrel. May not be a favorite if you are looking for a more traditional extra aged product. edit: Copied from my prior review for Ocho XA

2012 El Refugio | Strong aroma of sweet, fresh fruit - pear, apple, banana. No traditional barrel aromas and no agave...more like a delicious dessert. Nice complex flavor - baking spice, black pepper, and fruit all intermingle. The sweet-spice finish is medium length. 12-24-2017 (Annual XA tasting) Ocho XA side-by-side

2009 San Augustin | First, the color of this XA is incredibly light. Poured blind, you may think was a reposado. That said, the 2009 has more oak/barrel in the aroma than either the 2007 or 2008. There is also a bit of sweetness, spice and even a little brine...but little to no agave. Strong spicy flavor upfront that largely dominates everything else. For all the strength in the flavor, the finish is surprisingly short. This one is a little confusing with a lot of contradictions and just not at the same level as the ‘07 and ‘08. 12-24-2017 (Annual XA tasting) Ocho XA side-by-side

2009 San Augustin | Aroma: Incredibly floral with a hint of oak, leather, coffee and vanilla. This one falls between the 2007 and 2008. Definitely a little more on the aroma than the 2008 but not quite as much as the 2007. Flavor: This one is very mild. Slightly Briney with a bit of vanilla and caramel. Not as flavorful as I would like but still really solid. Finish: Nice smooth solid finish. Hangs around for a minute and leaves behind some nice flavor.

2008 El Carrizal | Aroma is fresh, bright and sweet. (Also, distinctly less “toasted” than the ‘07). Again, Agave is clearly present just as in the 2007. Flavor has some significant upfront spice that is nicely smoothed out by a little sweetness. The finish lingers with a nice sweet spice. I definitely prefer this one to the 2007. 12-24-2017 (Annual XA tasting) Ocho XA side-by-side

2008 El Carrizal | Aroma: Much more mild than the 2007. There's a slight bit of caramel and vanilla and also some red apple. But, not as fragrant as the last. Flavor: Lots of pepper with a bit of oak. Some vanilla starts to come through on the finish. Again, much like the flavor, it's very mild. Finish: Some smoke on the finish but still not a crazy finish. Fairly mild but comparable to the '07.

2007 El Vergel | Aroma: Lots of caramel, cherry and candy with a slight hint of leather and coffee. As it mellows, there's also a bit of olive. The sweeter notes definitely are the most dominant Flavor: Lots of cherry, leather and oak. Definitely not as sweet as I expected but still very enjoyable. Finish: Smooth but a little light on the finish. Still very solid but just lacking a slight bit,

2007 El Vergel | Incredible aroma with distinct sweetness made up of fruit and vanilla. However, through all of the complexity in the aroma the agave still shines through. For an XA, this is impressive: great flavor with sweet caramel and vanilla followed by a nice spice. This is not a traditional barrel-bomb that you find in so many aged tequilas. The finish is relatively short. 12-24-2017 (Annual XA tasting) Ocho XA side-by-side

2009 San Augustin | Quite spicy and dry. More like a reposado... The 2008 was a better xa with a richer, deeper complexity!

2008 El Carrizal | Incredible XA with a near perfect blend of flavors. As it says in the notes- "This Extra Anejo was aged the minimum time of three years in oak barrels used 6-7 times previously. This was done to retain as much of the agave essence without covering it with the oak influence of the barrels.".... They got it right...Like it a lot!

2009 San Augustin | Another gift from a friend, this is easily the lightest XA I have ever seen. Compared to the other Ocho XA fom 07 and 08 this looks like a reposado. The nose and the taste of this XA disprove that thought. Creamy agave ,caramel and some dry barrel spice make this a winner.
