Strong cherry aroma at outset. Over time alcohol becomes more present and other barrel aromas - vanilla, pine, fresh cut lumber. Flavor opens with a spicy heat then moves to fruit notes with strong cherry again appearing. Overly sweet for my taste. Spicy finish lingers for a relatively short time. 12/24/2020 - 8th Annual Xmas XA tasting

Aromas of agave, cinnamon, and oak upon first impression. After a little while I get some fruity notes along with a bit more barrel influence. The taste is all caramel, vanilla, oak, and leather. Not much agave to speak of, so this is definitely a tequila for whiskey drinkers. The finish is a little more spicy with black pepper and oak. I wasn't expecting much for a $40 XA, but this actually pretty good, especially if it's your first experience with an extra añejo.

It’s really rare to find an extra Añejo with agave still present but they have achieved in this case. This is a tequila drinkers tequila, I am a big fan.

The 100% agave version is the one to seek out. Bottles from several years ago were mixtos along with other San Matias products.

San Matias Gran Reserva is a great tequila and at aroound $50, a bangin' deal! Lots of spice and fruit tones, along with some cooked agave, caramel, earth, coffee and leather notes in this very complex and deep añejo. For me, it has too many heavy wood notes, but for people that have a bourbon background, I would highly recommend this tequila to them!

very oaky aroma with a slight sweetness. Very oaky taste, not a hint of sweetness. You can definitely feel the heat throughout. I can’t really make out the agave.

Don't love this one. Sweet aroma but burn on the finish and okay flavor. Not my pick for a sipper but may pair nicely with food or in a drink. Update: after sitting for a week, it's much better and not as sweet

Nose: Baked Agave, caramelized sugar, young bourbon... Palate: Rich and sweet, medium mouthfeel, strong barrel presence takes over leaving the slightest room for the agave to barely remind you it's still there. Finish: a little more presence of agave on the finish than on the palate, dry remnants of the three-year barrel aging, and a hint of burnt marshmallow. Overall, not as sweet as I anticipated and generally not complex. I would say $40 is an appropriate price point for this one.

I enjoy bold Anejo’s. I look forward to the artistry of the distiller and his barrel selections and timing. This one is much softer than what I usually go for. I enjoyed this one for its nice light clean taste. Some hints of soft caramel, pepper and a little alcohol but all nicely balanced.

Caramel with an extra long buuuurn... Tried it on the rocks, and was able to appreciate more complex flavors and finish.

Was so excited to try this after reading about it. I was a little let down as there was definitely too much heat for me. Great value for an XA, notes of caramel, vanilla, butterscotch...hard to find the agave. Would be excellent in a cocktail but I’m sure plenty would enjoy on its own.

Price / value is very reasonable for an xa. Found it to be a little too oily and some bitter heat. A good sipper for comparisons.

Caramel, toasted nuts, vanilla,the agave is there but faded. Great value introduction to extra anejos but ultimately I'd prefer a great blanco at the same price.
