So smooth, so soft, so delicious! Still has s touch of agave left but this is really about barrel manipulation and how it can be soooooo great of done correctly. This is the first XA I ever loved and nothing has changed over the years, it’s friendly and familiar.

Very spicy and oaky, a little overly aggressive for my liking. Would be great for a whiskey drinker.

Nose: Jammy tropical fruit with berry undercurrents. A graham cracker nuanced cinnamon creeps in. Flavors: Oak and bourbon step in and overpower the fruit and agave nose. Some vanilla peeks through. Finish is longish and fairly balanced, but not inspired.

I like the flavor, but I don't taste any flavors distinctive enough to mention and the finish is rather mild. I can't imagine spending this much for this bottle.

Aroma is musty, nutty and earthy with a touch of citrus. Sweet on entry which quickly turns musty and woody. Nicely balance finish that is warm, sweet and woodsy. Tasty.

Aroma: wood, brown sugar, vanilla. Flavors of wood, honey, black pepper and vanilla compliment each other. The smooth finish takes on flavors of vanilla and nutmeg. An enjoyable tequila with a prohibitive price point

Rated blind. Amber color with slow thick legs. Very woody nose at the top of the glass. More of a toasted almond nose toward the bottom. Enters smooth and thick. Woody on the palate with just a touch of heat. Long finish, dry. It's pleasant enough, but even if someone else were paying for it, I would probably ask for something else. I don't like this enough for anyone to pay $300 for me to drink it.

The aroma is very light and mild. On the nose there is a slight hint of butterscotch and vanilla. But, there is also another note that is bitter and not super pleasant. The flavor is slightly oaky but very heavy in mint. The flavor again is slightly bitter. I was hoping more of the butterscotch would come through in the flavor but it definitely gets lost.

From a blind tasting. Very bourbony, very. Second sip reveals some creamy agave and oak that resolves to a moderately sweet finish. Some slight numbing goes with this.

Note: this is the older version. Bottled in 2002. Immensely tasty.

I tried this at the tasting held at Traveler Montlake. This was my favorite out of the three and surprised me because it is not my usual taste palette. I am no expert when it comes to cognac but to me this compares to the best cognac I've had.

Great Googly Moogly. Can someone please buy me a bottle of this once a month? This might be my perfect mouthful of tequila. Crazy clean mouth feel, touch of bright citrus, no weird side effects in the finish. My first 99.

This sample has a very nice aroma with a hint of an apple note, which appears also in the palate. It's quite balanced and with the right amount of oak. The turn offs which prevents it from being a life changer are the too faint presence of agave in the nose, palate and in the short finish, plus of course the hefty price! A very good juice nonetheless.

Exquisite! From the beautiful box to the gorgeous bottle to the stunning red amber color and the beautiful clinging pearls to the side of the snifter, this TequilaSnob loves this sip! Nice warm, heat and finish that we love. After resting for 4+ years in a clean, new Oak Barrel the vanilla and caramel notes really shine through. Hurrah for Herradura!

I don’t know where to start. Nose is a caramel bomb, but overwhelmingly caramel then vanilla. Little agave. Palate is way lighter than expected which is good, but there’s not much else, especially for an XA. It’s diluted and agave strives to be seen. The finish is dry and VERY weak...an hour of sipping now and a tad of pepper caramel finally shows its face. Overall: completely lacking the complexity I expected. In all fairness I love their Plata y Reposado but I’m sorry this is a rip-off. And I paid a discount in Mexico! I can’t help but think of all the G4 & Pasote blancos I could have bought with this money.

The best extra I have ever tasted. If I won the lottery, I would have barrels shipped to my house!

Jack Daniels flavor in the mouth, caramel on the lips. Nice smooth finish.

The tequila coats the glass very well. Very strong hints of what could be of rye whisky. The taste is very good the agave comes thru and then you get a stand barrel taste which is not necessarily bad.
