Light and balanced, slight pepper on the front rounded out with floral and herbal notes. Nothing dominates. It’s an even drink and a wonderful sipper

Aroma, light but definite agave, burnt brown sugar, and vanilla tones. Flavor, kind of faint at first followed by burnt brown sugar, agave, wood, and anise. Finish a touch hot for its aging but overall a good sipper and sharer (meaning it's one I won't be hoarding)

Terralta Añejo lot 1 Lote: LT0001A40 (Oct 13, 2016) Date tasted: June 17, 2022 Nose: agave, fruit, peach, a little oak, pepper Taste: sweet agave, vanilla, oak, slight pepper Finish: sweet agave slight oak and pepper, warmth. very nice finish Other: This is an old bottle with about 1/4 left in the bottle. it was still very good and well balanced. Nice legs, viscosity is not too thick not watery. Just right. Another easy sipper. smell the glass when it's empty. Caramel on the nose!

On the nose, Light oak, agave, and fruit. A little bit of berries. Canteloupe, or maybe honeydew, some type of melon for sure. Beautiful aroma, one of my favorite notes and I rarely get it. On the palate, Intense flavor. Spices, minerals, agave. Definitely get the oak, definitely get the earthiness. It’s got a nice balanced sweetness, and a bit of vanilla. I swear I’m tasting almond and maybe butter, but sweet. A tiny bit of mint in the finish for me. Many people consider this the weak spot of the Terralta line but I would have to completely disagree. This is fantastic, full of flavor. I almost feel like the reposado is more subdued in comparison. The first sip was an exposition of flavor and at $51 at my local spot, I’ll keep this in stock forever.

Slight oak, dry wood and spicy aroma. Ripe plum, a bit of milk candy, and some melon. Wood taste slighty overcomes the agave taste in this one, although wood taste is really balanced and not overwhelming due to the exhausted bourbon casks used to age the tequila. In the aftertaste, rich agave taste richly appears in an underlying layer: first I get cooked agave and then raw agave comes to scene. Not the average woody, vanilla and caramel taste on this one, and that is just great!

Aroma : Cooked agave and apricot predominate here. There is also some brine and light oak. Light earth as well. Taste : Light agave here with some oak. A small degree of brine here as well. Peppery with some almond and caramel. Full bodied. Finish : Long with stronger notes of an oak and caramel barrel influence.

Nose: Full on agave. Ripe peach, apricot and berries. Undercurrent of barrel spice - very light oak! Flavor: Coats your mouth with silky vanilla, almond and jerk-like spices. A nice pepper sensation. A hint of brine and cured cheese. A slight tongue numbing, satisfying finish.

I was excited to try this tequila. It was one that I didn't have.I have seen plenty of good reviews raving about it. I was looking forward to tasting it. To be honest, I was rather disappointed. It did not live up to that hype. On the nose..minerals, lots of agave, ethanol, some citrus and very weak barrel presence. The barrel did not tame it down at all. Still get a lot of ethanol on the nose and pallet. The barrels they used did not infuse this tequila with that beautiful caramel and vanilla that you would expect from a good Anejo. You can barely nose or taste it. It's there, but very weak. To my pallet, it tasted more like a Reposado. Is it good? Yes. Is it worth the money? Yes. I would rather spend $20-30 more for a proper barrel infused Anejo that doesn't take away the agave nose and flavor. I don't like a heavy whiskey barrel that overpowers the Agave, but I do love those nice sweet barrel notes of carame, butterscotch and vanilla. The finish on this Anejo was mediocre. A good Anejo takes the agave to the edge where you get a good balance of barrel and the agave Anejo expression.

Nose: vegetal, earthy and floral notes Palate: butterscotch with citrus and floral flavors For an anejo, the flavor profile is interesting. Value of this expression is very good but this bottle provided a somewhat disappointing taste experience coming from one of the finest distilleries.

This is the biggest let down in their lineup to me even though it's still very good. Just not as good as the others. Aroma: This is my biggest issue with it. it's very muted. Slight cooked agave and some subtle baking spices. The barrel influence is minimal which I like. Taste: The agave comes through better than on the nose. It's not cloyingly sweet like some of the other Añejos I've had and the barrel influence is very muted. I get some baking spices and a little floral note that's not in the nose. Just a tad bit of vanilla on the back of the throat. Finish: Medium at best. It's not like some Añejos that sit with you for a long time. This one comes and goes relatively quickly. It's not your typical Añejo. It's much heavier on the Agave than any of the barrel effects. If you like your Añejo on the sweeter side this one is definitely not for you. It's got the dryness of a barrel aged expression but concentrate on keeping the Agave front and center. That's the hallmark or the entire Terralta line and this is no different. It's a very good Añejo and just off the top tier for me. Still a great sipper though. Also, you aren't going to find a better value in high quality additive free Tequila than Terralta. I have everything in my cabinet except the XA 110 because I can't find it. **Edit - Tried it again and had a much better experience. Beautiful agave and light barrel influence but very well constructed. It's really delicious after it opens up a bit and doesn't lose its identity.

Aroma is good. I can’t really put my finger on what I smell…oak- pepper- agave. Flavor is velvet agave with oak and light pepper. The flavors continue with barrel spice- caramel and hints of vanilla. Finish is smooth with agave pepper- wish it lasted longer.

Apricots sizzling in butter on the aroma! Sensational flavor and a good finish. Wow. What took me so long to find this one! If you like fruity and savory, this one is for you! I’m picking up a bottle soon.

Terralta Anejo - What An Amazingly Pleasant Surprise

Lou and his friend Warren get into Terralta Añejo, made at the famous El Pandillo distillery.

Terralta Añejo Tequila – “Earthly Pleasure”

If you think the term terroir only applies to wine, the Terralta line will make you think again. Aromas of soil (earth, mushrooms) and minerals remain even in the añejo, mixing pleasantly with barrel flavors such as vanilla, maple, and caramel.
