Cooked agave, oak and vanilla on the nose with some minerality and citrus. Cooked agave and oak on the mouth with a buttery feel and black pepper finishes with a hint of citrus.

Very sophisticated EA. Great balance between spices, nutty, right amount of oak and a nice creamy finish. Highly suggest it at the price!

Nice aroma of cooked agave with a caramel/ vanilla. Also get a little floral on the back end. Taste has a low to medium heat which is good. Let’s me know I’m drinking without it being to harsh. Taste is like the smell agave, vanilla, , oak in the middle with a medium finish of the vanilla ,floral and a little citrus. Very good extra anejo Potpourri and let it rest, and it’s even better

Aroma : Cooked agave and floral notes with mint and citrus. For an extra añejo that was definitely a surprise. Not much oak or aged notes to speak of. Taste : Crisp underlying agave and light oak. Caramel and almond/hazelnut predominate with some degree of baking spice. This is lightly sweet and somewhat spicy. Oily and complex too. Finish : Long and prolongs all the taste notes with some stronger baking spice. Top tier extra añejo. I hope I'll be able to find the "55" version soon because this was a hard one to put down.

G4 Extra Anejo This nose is full of cooked agave and buttery vanilla. The agave punches through nicely, you only get some slight oak but a sweet clean finish. I appreciate that Felipe utilizes older used barrels for aging. This allows the tequila tastes to still dominate without the oak taking over. Well done. ¡Salud!

This XA is one of my favorites to date. For the price, the value is excellent. Felipe is a mad scientist when it comes to creating epic juice and this is no exception. The aroma is of cooked agave, butterscotch and caramel. On the palate you will be treated with an agave-forward taste with a slightly orange blossom, citrusy taste with an oaky/woody, black peppery finish.

Vibrant nose of pineapples, citrus, agave and nuts. Clean feel to this one. First comes caramel and nuts, followed by baking spices, anise and pepper. Kissed with a lactic note. Nice agave presence - no overpowering oak at all. Lingering finish that invites another sip and another sip...

Vanilla on the nose, with taste of vanilla, oak, and citrus—all balanced nicely. Very good.

Tasted some of JW's G4 XA . Such a delight from Felipe's private barrel. Great to have friends with connections.

The aroma is interesting for an XA...it is not understated or discreet but does not have much if any barrel in the mix. Floral notes and agave predominate with a bit of an almost honeysuckle sweetness. Everything is nice and light. The flavor has a nice initial sweetness followed by baking spice and peppery heat. The finish has a nice lingering heat and is medium long. At the price ($63), this is an incredible value. 12/30/2016 - 4th Annual Xmas XA tasting.

Aroma: Interesting notes for an extra anejo. I get pine, mint, and it's also slightly floral. These are notes more traditionally seen with Blancos (at least for me). But, there is also hints of oak and caramel. Flavor: Slightly spicy but heavy in winter type notes. Caramel, clove, oak, and definitely one I could see myself sipping on a cold winter night. Finish: Very nicely balanced and hangs around for a while. Not overly strong and tons of flavor hangs around.

Added: BAT 2016 bottling of this juice is absolutely the highest proof XA I have tasted. Truly a one of a kind bottling of tequila made by Felipe Camarena. A well rounded extension of prior expressions, this 3 year aged extra añejo is very easy to drink. Never sweet or syrupy it has a nice feel in the mouth and reminds me very much of Ocho XA, which was also developed by Felipe C. in the early days of the brand. Get some. Might see some importation soon as G4 grows it's distribution in MX.

The taste of actual agave nectar

When tasting/sipping this I had to give it a few tries to let it unfold. Right off the bat I’ll say it’s a great XA and nothing awful or concerning of the aromas, tasting notes or finish. Solid for sure as pretty much everything from G4. I taste vanilla, leather, citrus, oak, pepper, agave. One must sit and wait for the after aroma which is agave but it takes a couple minutes for this to shine through, so patience is a must. Overall is it worth the bottle price? I believe so, especially taking into account there is only 800 of these bottles produced. If you like XAs it’s solid and smooth.

The aroma of this tequila is undeniably enticing, with prominent caramel and cooked agave notes that immediately capture the senses. Subtle hints of light ethyl and honey add depth to the aroma, while the lingering essence of bourbon enhances its allure. Upon tasting, the palate is treated to a symphony of flavors that unfold gracefully with each sip. The distinct presence of whiskey and black cherry pepperiness commands attention, balanced by nuances of tropical fruit and anise that grace the taste buds. The gourmand taste is further enriched by hints of freshness and honey, accompanied by the rich flavors of caramelized brown sugar and faint sarsaparilla, all notably underscored by a subtle alcohol tone and a whisper of date. As the tasting journey reaches its conclusion, the finish gently tapers down to a lingering sensation of whiskey and light pepperiness, leaving behind a haunting minerality and freshness that pleasantly coats the palate. An excellent XA imo.

Sweet aroma of citrus and vanilla, along with agave. For taste you get pepper, anise and caramel. Would rate it higher if it was $130+ and difficult to find. Will revisit in a few days to see if it opens up more.

2024 version has way more bold agave flavor than 2015 version. Sweet bubble gum agave barrel flavor. One of the best tequilas I’ve tried.

Very pleasant smell, slightly sweet, definite agave hints. Super smooth, not hot or strong. Gets slightly sweet with a bit of ice. I wish my nose & tongue were more sensitive to get more flavors from this. Definitely will buy again when I can find it.

Soft nose…. Agave, vanilla, caramel, wood notes. Light amber in the glass. Medium-thin mouthfeel. Mildly sweet with vanilla, caramel, dark chocolate and oak. Nice cinnamon-spice finish.
