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.

An outstanding XA from an outstanding distillery, great balance of agave, oak, and citrus with a smooth finish

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.

I know G4 is a cult favorite but even though this one is an Extra Añejo it still has a lot of burn. Not as complex as expected for an XA.

Nose: cooked agave Taste: cooked agave, subtle sweetness, somewhat soapy. Finish: grassy, some bitterness, earthy Overall: there’s nothing Extra Anejo about it. It’s a good tequla but I expected a lot more. Nothing special, not worth the price.

Great long finish. Agave is forward , slight sweetness with not a whole lot of oak. Lacking complexities but a decent sipper. I say do it!

Second bottle I purchase of this great extra añejo. Great aromas of grass, vanilla, oak, agave and butterscotch that are also detected when you taste it. Just so perfectly balanced nice creamy mouth feel with a great finish. This is for sure in my top 5.

Best XA I’ve tried. Had it for my birthday and enjoyed it, tried it a week later and it was at least 5x better. Always let G4 open up and you see why they are elite. For an XA 120$ ain’t bad, but if you aren’t rolling in the cash, it’s not a bottle you can have every week.

Fresh cut grass on the nose. Hints of vanilla going down. Very little burn on the finish. This bottle goes over like a crisp spring day after a rain. Don’t expect heavy oak or sweetness, this is more akin to some of the best reposados I’ve had than an EA.
