I found this to have a light nose compared to some other prized XAs. What I do get is nice with agave and butter and a bit of oak. Taste is fantastic. Buttery toffee, sweet cooked agave, light oak and caramel. A bit of cognac to the finish. Very nice. Not all pretty bottles have bad juice.

The lovely bottle brightened the room, especially since it was raining outside. It was a nice amber color in the glass. Aroma of caramel, oak and butter. Flavor of caramel, oak, cooked agave and some black pepper. The finish didn't last as long as expected. I was surprised to see this distillery also makes Pueblo Viejo, one of my bargain favorites. This one takes a hit in value for being 10 times the price.

After 3 years of having this bottle: The aroma is rich with notes of honey, subtle cooked agave, caramel, and milk chocolate, accompanied by delicate hints of brine and light ethyl. A touch of butterscotch with a soft whiskey tone adds depth and complexity to the olfactory experience. Upon tasting, the palate is enveloped in decadent butterscotch flavor, interwoven with flashes of pepperiness, chocolate, and rich almonds or earthy nuttiness. Notes of cooked pineapple and tropical fruit contribute to the indulgent profile, while a subtle salted butter creaminess adds a luxurious texture. The presence of whiskey enhances the overall flavor medley, harmonizing with the cacophony of flavors and cooked agave. The fruity honey exit is accompanied by fading bitterness and bourbon sweetness, with a lingering spiciness that tantalizes the body of the tongue for some time. This lingering finish adds a satisfying conclusion to the indulgent tasting experience.

Purchased for USD187.50 in November 2021. Rating the value a 7 due to the price I paid, it would be 1 to 2 points lower had I paid retail (USD250). Nose: Sweet, sugary caramel, butterscotch, vanilla, and other oak characteristics. The blend of American and French oak works very nicely. Palate: Creamy, rich agave, enveloped by the oak nuances. Finish: Slight alcohol burn that is faintly peppery. Some oak characteristics linger. Presentation: Beautiful decanter that also comes with a crystal/glass topper (which I'll never use). The box design is great. This is one of the few tequilas with a "pretty bottle" that is actually very good.

Rey Sol's flavor profile has remained consistant throughout the years. This 2016 bottle is no exception. So much goodness here. Upfront agave, dark chocolate, raspberry, berries, honey, mocha, molasses, marshmallow, nutmeg, butterscotch, leather, hint of vanilla. Worth every penny.

Lighter than I thought for an XA aged this long. Great nose, mid palate and finishes nicely. Little nuances of sweet agave. Awesome bottle with good juice

Beautiful presentation but not just a one trick pony. The nose is full of oak, burnt sugar, wet earth, tobacco, apple, and very floral. The palate throws waves of carmel, maple, and butterscotch. Some vanilla and ripe berries present themselves. Sweet but somehow not overdone. Full mouth feel and long legs coat the glass. Long sweet and spicy finish. This tequila is great for the cognac fan or even the bourbon nerd. Perfect to be sipped neat after dinner. This comes in a beautiful decanter and a long 6 years of aging but the price will turn off some folks.

Excellent cognac style tequila. Just dinging a bit for price and a little more heat than I’d expect. Similar to AsomBroso with heavy vanilla tones.

Aroma of agave, sugar cookie, tobacco, caramel, and toasted wood. Flavor is vanilla, light spice, butterscotch and agave. Great balance and complexity. Better as it opens up.

This 6 year XA will give off an amazing aroma of melted butter, roasted nuts and dark chocolate covered cherries - with plumb and apricots. The palate will greet you with barrel oak, but will maintain steamed agave. This is very hard to accomplish with a 6 year XA. Somehow they made it work. It has a sweet, brown sugar finish. Although it comes in a crystal, handmade decanter, the price is still commensurate with the juice. I found this to exceed my expectations.

En nariz: notas de nueces caramelizadas, vainilla propia de la barrica, frutos secos, ligero toque de fruta tropical como de plátano maduro. No percibo ya el aroma de agave cocido en este extra añejo. Un poco de mantequilla en su aroma. Una pequeña nota de frutos rojos como arándano deshidratado. Algo de piñón. En boca: se siente la ligereza de cuerpo debido a la dilución. Predominan los sabores de la barrica: vainilla y caramelos principalmente. De terminado un poco fuerte para su graduación baja de 38% alc vol. Empieza a desarrollarse una nota alcohólica en retrogusto... Su sabor muy sencillo, en comparación con el excelente aroma.

10yr aniversario single barrel. Nice nose, not too much oak for a 10yr. But you get quiet enough taste of it in the front end. Balanced it by the mix pepper dark chocolate, hint of vanilla and heat towards the end.

A favorite extra añejo of mine! A little spicy up front on the palate but softens nicely with a butterscotch finish!

Sooooo gentle considering the time in oak, it’s rare to find balance and restraint in an expensive XA. Toasted nuts and caramel linger far after your last sip, the finish is by far the star of the show.

Nice, fragrant aroma full of fruit and oak. You can literally pick up the aroma from 3 feet away. Flavor is smooth and creamy with sweet fruit and caramel upfront that evolves to a nice baking spice bite. The finish is medium to long. This is a great end of the evening sipper. The bottle is also fantastic. 03-29-2018

Aroma: Big aroma of butterscotch, vanilla and baked tropical fruit. Floral berry notes and hint of wet rocks, citrus and layered barrel spices. Flavor: Balanced and buttery toffee and hazelnut and leather notes. The baked agave is still present, with only light oak notes for an XA. Viscous with vanilla, anise and pepper undercurrents. Trace earthiness. Slow lingering finish with a little black pepper reposing on the back of my tongue.

Maybe it's the moment or it's really great juice but I'm enjoying this at El Presidio in Mazatlan Centro Histirico with my wife of two years. ????????????

This is an extra anejo that has not gone too far, which is rare. Agave is still present and the wood isn't introducing any unwanted spice. Good stuff, if you can afford it!

Extremely sweet - one of the most fantastic aromas and palet from an extra Anejo I’ve ever tasted. Decent amount of agave, but this one is full of vanilla, oak, caramel, and butterscotch. Underwhelming in the finish. It doesn’t stay around long; and I really wish it did. Short finish. Value takes a hit too.

Exquisite XA with complex layers of flavors without losing the agave(almost). Though it is not necessarily an agave forward tequila, its presence is there, albeit subtly. It boasts an amazing bountiful nose which emanates caramel, vanilla, honey, citrus, orange peel, chocolate and cooked agave. The palate does not disappoint and is rich with its expression of caramel, cinnamon, vanilla, dried fruit, cherry, citrus, chocolate and slight cooked agave which are delicately balanced with a velvety mouthfeel and a long lasting finish. Although acknowledging a wonderful tequila, an unexpected sense of sweetness tends to exert a subtle, yet tangible effect on an otherwise excellently crafted tequila.

Lots of floral notes, blossoms, roses and lavender on the palate and nose with burnt caramel and cocoa notes with a smooth finish

Great nose. Agave, caramel, vanilla. Thin mouthfeel. Warm and mildly sweet through a medium-long finish.
