The nose is nice. Sweet, caramel. A bare hint of mint. Something like honeycomb and chocolate. As it’s opening up, I’m getting a distinct note of green apple, and the. brown sugar. On the palate, I get that minty coolness, and the nice but subdued sweetness. Maybe a touch of chocolate, some burnt sugar. The Apple is coming through as well. Very interesting. Picked up for $23 in Tijuana, an absolute steal for something this good. I’d drink this all day.

Super interesting tequila. The Mexican version had me fooled. I wasn’t expecting such a deep profile considering how it it made. I am pleasantly surprised.

The Mexico version is a mixto, but don't let that scare you. This stuff is good!

The nose has elements of cooked agave, caramel, vanilla and oak. The taste is a sweet agave with more vanilla and oak. The finish is smooth with a nice warm finish. Purchase this tequila if you can find it. Salud!

Amber in color with nice lágrimas. Aromas of fruit, flowers, agave and medium oak. Spicey with green apples, cherry and a hint of mint. Flavors start with cinnamon, tingly heat and toffee. Mellow but with pepper warmth. A little more oak on the finish, a pleasing medium long finish with the pepper as a counter point to the sweetness. I wanted to edit this after sitting with this for a day. It hits all the right notes and gets a high rating from me, but there is something lacking. I wouldn’t want to drink more than one glass of this in an evening.

The aroma is wonderful. Lots of carmel, fresh roasted agave and chocolate notes. Entry is smooth and rich with vanilla and more chocolate plus a hint of whit pepper. Finish carries the soft pepper notes. Toasty oak and a bit of sweetness along with that touch of heat on the center of my tongue. De-lish!

Very sweet and syurpy. Not my favorite but it is very budget friendly for an XA.

I wasn’t sure what to expect with a mixto extra añejo definitely interesting. I haven’t tried the U.S. version but I really enjoyed this one. Very light on the nose, good legs beautiful honey amber color, subtle black pepper, chocolate notes and a nice medium finish. An outstanding sipper for its value.

I thought this was a great sipping style reserva . For the price, for the low profile packaging I definitely appreciate this brand. Much smoother than the American version . Yes it’s the Mexico version but I feel it could have wings if it was sold in the USA . Good job guy

Interesting tequila. The Mexican version is a mixto, but aged as an extra Anejo. It’s taste is clearly it’s strength. I keep wanting to say ‘great for a mixto’, but it is pretty good whatever it is. It’s a little thinner than a 100% Agave tequila, but still quite tasty. The nose is a bit weak although not bad. The finish is fine, but again suffers from a mild weakness. Anyway, it is a great value; and while not a high end XA it is highly drinkable and comes recommended.

Mixto - but best that I've tried - cooked agave aroma and taste up front and center - sweeter taste than I prefer. Bottle looks good, tequila tastes decently and priced very fair.

Although the Mexican retail version is a mixto this is a great sipper. I always relate the flavor profile of this tequila to a candied Christmas cake with spice and dried fruit and baking spice notes on the nose and palate. A great entry Añejo tequila for people that "hate" tequila but don't know what they're talking about.

This is the Mexico version which is a mixto. My understanding is that this is 70% agave. Aroma of cooked agave, caramel, alcohol and a hint of orange. Flavor of cooked agave, oak and vanilla. Medium long finish with a pleasant sweetness. Good value considering the prices for Extra Añejo. Would be a nice pairing with a good cigar after dinner.

I do like the anejo over the extra anejo, because there is more agave aroma. This one could convince whisky & aged brandy lovers. Anyway, this is good stuff.

My wife and I throughly enjoy this tequila. Soft and East no harshness as I would expect in an extra añejo.
