Sampled neat in a brandy snifter at a restaurant for USD17 a pour. Price seems fair. I've had the other Azuñia expressions and this is the stand out. Aroma and flavor: agave, caramel, heavy barrel influence, toffee, slightly minty, cherry, stone fruit. Finish: pepper, agave sweetness, barrel notes, long and lingering. A pleasant mouthfeel, but no / next to no noticeable alcohol.

Azuñia Black Anejo I smell rich buttery caramel and some vanilla. I also smell some light plum and faint cinnamon. It’s a vibrant nose but not a lot of agave punching through. It’s spicy. Cinnamon and nutmeg up front. I then get some leather, tobacco, raisins and sweet agave. It reminds me of a dark spiced rum. There is some lingering pepper on the finish. The finish is sweet and peppery with a pleasant alcohol tingle.

Full bodied Anejo that drinks and taste more like an XA. Well made, good balance.

Absolutely amazing !! Maybe my favorite heavy anejo. This is a bold, complicated, full but balanced anejo, which rivals some extra anejos. This is a double barrelled treat. The nose is exceptional with cherry, honey, smoke, sweet whiskey, oak and caramel. Tastes of vanilla with roasted nuts, some fruit with melon on the backend. Not cheap, but compared to some XA's I've had....this is a deal.

Aroma is the strongest point here, taste is also fantastic, but struggles a bit on the finish compared to the rest of the experience. There is a great deal of oak throughout, but on the finish the oak becomes a bit dry, alcoholic, tannic and slightly more bitter than I’d prefer, and it tends to linger like that for a while. Nose is lovely…I could sit and sniff this one for hours. Strong oak and maybe even an old, rolled, unlit cigar type of tobacco undertone, and sweet caramel overtone. Flavor is wonderful and is where the oak really punches you in the face. Very little sweetness on the palate compared to the nose, as there is more of a cinnamon and baking spices presence that takes over. Only taste complaint is that it does lack a bit of body and mouthfeel compared to some other premium tequilas I’ve had. Granted, I’m not sophisticated enough to know whether I’m comparing this to tequilas with additives or not, so perhaps others I’ve had are “cheating” somewhat on that point, but I just feel it’s a bit thin on the palate. I detect zero agave here as it has been fully conquered by the oak and aging.

Kinda boring EA tequila. It just doesn't have depth or any special interests. Pretty much what you should expect from a diffuser and stainless tank tequila.

Sipped on patio at Barrio Queen in Old Town Scottsdale. Fantastic, complicated, bold aromas and flavors of caramel, vanilla, almond, cinnamon, nutmeg & oak. Super smooth finish.

This is a great gateway transitional tequila for bourbon drinkers. Very tasty pour. Definitely purchase again and recommend it highly.

this is definitely a well made spirit, but for me it lacks the agave forwardness that I look for. yes, it's an XA, but for me it's too close to a whisky. if you like the barrel to be the star of your tequila and not the agave, this is for you. again, it's well made, it just doesn't satisfy my palate when I want tequila. I would recommend it to someone who likes that flavor profile, but I would only drink it again if I wasn't paying for the bottle. I understand I'm in the minority on this one

Fairly unique XA nose of butterscotch, carmel, vanilla and agave. Smooth on the tongue with a mid tongue sweetness and long finish with hints of charred oak This is my new favorite XA
