Aroma : Light agave with vanilla, caramel, almond, and oak. Taste : Vanilla, caramel, oak, cinnamon, and baking spices. Agave is ever so light here, just like in the aroma. This is medium bodied and somewhat dry in texture but still oily to an extent. Finish : Long with more oak, almond, and baking spices. Like the Añejo, this doesn't have the nice buttery texture of the other Alquimia bottles, but there's still some great flavor here.

Aroma of vanilla undertones. Front loaded alcohol hits you very harsh. Hard to tell it’s aged it’s like a high end Jose Cuervo shot.

Excellent aged tequila. The profile shows a lot of oak and cooked agave, but I thought it had great balance with nice vanilla notes. Extremely smooth and a pleasure to drink neat.

Earthy, smoky, vanilla and oak. Brown sugar and berries on finish. Pretty good.

If you are an Alquimia fan, which i am, this will not disspoint. As an XA, it will of course pick up the oaky, vanilla and caramel flavors, but its not overpowering. The cooked agave still shines through. With the single estate agave and traditional methods of cooking, i put this distillery as one of my favorites.

Oh so good. Inviting aromas of vanilla and cooked agaves with the slightest hint of brûlée. Taste starts with a healthy dose of agave and caramel. The finish lingers for a bit and sautéed pie spices and butter toast. Maybe cinnamon

Smells good and tastes good but it just isn't worth the price.

I was expecting a much more mellow flavor from this after being aged but it retains a lot of its original flavor and is a bit harsh for an XA. Update as of May 4th2019. It’s still a bit harsh on the alcohol flavor but overall the flavors of oak aging and the very very light hints of vanilla are there. Still have to knock this down on the price 99$ a bottle is a bit too much. Maybe at 50-60 $ I’d buy it.

creamy vanilla nose. very sweet entry, almost cloying. sweetness fades on finish, just a hint of southern sweet tea at the end.

Rich, intense and very complex aroma and flavor. Quite woody, honey, bitter almond, vanilla, butterscotch, cloves and coconut in the flavor.

Blind tasted. This a nice quite smooth XA. It's sweet but not too much. Not a lot of oak and not very complex either. The value compared to the other samples gives it quite few points, although it definitely not the most remarkable in terms of taste.

A bit of Vanilla on aroma. I taste a slight cinnamon on the finish. I liked the flavor, but the finish over-powered the flavor.

Didn't seem like an extra anejo since it was pretty light, but I liked the salinity and vegetal notes.

Subtle fruit notes. With some sweet agave chocolate and cherry. Medium mouth feel. There is a bit of alcohol burn on entry with wood,fruit and slight anise. Has a slight warm finish with mellow wood and earth.

Pleasant aroma of agave, wood and citrus. The flavor takes on spicy cinnamon and baked apple notes to compliment the wood and vanilla. This one seems to improve with every sip

Tequila Alquimia Reserva de Don Adolfo Extra Añejo – “The Art of Agave”

Like all the other Alquimia products, this tequila expression is something special. The main reason: although it’s an extra añejo the agave still shines through. Amen for that!

Review #118 - Alquimia Tequila Extra Anejo

A tequila that all tequila lovers should try. A really well aged (6 years) tequila with a ton of character.
