This Excelencia Gran Reserva by Tapatio is a treat. This sipper smells as good as it tastes. The nose starts with oak but the cooked agave quickly punches through. There are also hints of sweetness. It reminds me of a caramel crème brûlée. I definitely nose this tequila several times before I dive in and taste it. I then taste the cooked agave and oak simultaneously with the agave giving way to a long oaky sweet warm finish. The lingering taste is nice since this tequila is so well made. I would recommend that you allow this tequila to finish out a nice tequila flight. The price brought the rating down a little bit but I’d still highly recommend that you find it for the best price possible and go for it. “You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.” Wayne Gretzky

Very smooth XA, but for the price and reviews I was expecting it to be a tid better, I would drink it again but have reservations about overall value for the price.

Excellent extra anejo. Unique and complex nose with agave, orange peel, peach, and oak. Flavor picks up most of the same, with heavier wood tones on the way down. Aged a long time producing a dark color, but still retains its agave and doesn’t get too sweet. This girl has nice legs too.

Amazing nose, but the taste is extremely woody. Almost like drinking a Scotch. I like that this isn’t a sugary mess but it’s just a bit too barrel for me.

A good tequila. Hints of brown sugar , agave, and oak. A little on the pricey side, but if your willing to spend the money, worth it!

Beautiful expression of tequila. Scent of fresh cut wood. Easy to drink. Mildly sweet but not cloying. Essence of Werthers Original caramels.

Oh my god. This was amazing. Had this in a blind tasting. Wife opened and poured me a random bottle. Smells of cooked agave and caramel hits the nose. First sip was citrus on the forefront followed by whisper of smoke and finishes strong in butterscotch, tobacco and buttery caramel. This was divine

A woody aroma. The flavor delivers a peppery punch. I would've enjoyed it more with a gentler finish.

Nice aroma of caramelized agave and brown sugar. Flavor has some sweetness, a good amount of wood and a hint spice. Nice mouth feel and slightly thick and oily. There is a lot of wood on the lingering finish.

Awesome. Does Siete Leguas DO extra anejo? Especially good with bacon. (-: I can taste the char of the plant. Super deep and complex.

Aromas of wood, nuts, caramel, vanilla. Flavors of wood, baking spices, smoke, vanilla and almonds. A smooth, well balanced finish. Delicious but pricey. I loved this one.

Rated blind.A lot of wood in this one. Buttery on the nose with a hint of smoke. Not much agave left on the nose or palate (well, agave for the nose at the bottom of the glass). Finishes dry. It's nice, and I would certainly keep the bottle, or drink it if someone else was paying, but I don't think I could bring myself to buy this twice.

Very unique tequila. Definitely recommended sipper. Great Aroma, mouthfeel and taste. Very flavorful yet very smooth. One of my favorite Extra Anejo so far.

Too dark, spicy and burbony for me.. But still enjoyable with lots of character. Burbon drinkers would like this

In all honesty I haven't had too many xa's. The scent I would wear as cologne. It smells like a delicious bourbon and baked agave with banana and fruit. It tastes a slice of baked fruit cake with this stuff poured all over it. I love it if you can't yell. At $140 a liter it's very well priced

Incredibly dark color. Heavy oak aroma dominates but slight floral and caramel scents also appear. Flavor has strong oak and peppery spice with dry tannic sensation. Nice, warm lingering finish.
