Immediately on the nose I’m getting Cinnamon and berries, and definitely peaches. Some whiskey, and that Terralta minerality, but not as intense in lesser aged offerings. Butterscotch, Vanilla, not a ton of oak. There’s a lot going on, and this has a very sweet, fruity nose. Almost like bubble gum after it opens up, very fruity. Some molasses. Very complex nose, so much going on. Almost reminds me of a panadería. The tasting is delightful. More agave than the nose suggests but those baking spices, very fruity and surprisingly sweet. I’m getting cherry, butterscotch and vanilla, and the agave comes through more on the finish. Stunning expression from Felipe, this is damn good. I picked it up for $75 and for me, it’s hard to beat that. High points on value for an XA.

Well balanced. Soft Aged Agave, alcohol, lightly sweet. Perfect sipper. Light enough to show the cooked agave.

Aroma : Berries, minerality and baking spices. A hint of black pepper too. Taste : Light cooked agave and cinnamon. Caramel and more baking spices, and somewhat peppery, and some minor oak notes. This is light in flavor. Finish : Long lasting with with stronger emphasis on fruity notes and caramel. Another top tier bottle of Terralta. I really like how this is so light in flavor but offers enough complexity to be a great extra añejo.

Bright lively nose. Ripe red fruit, berries, and peaches. Great depth of aromas with spices, a hint of minerals and a savory note. Flavors: Viscous with agave, cinnamon, dark brown sugar, and the slightest bit of amargo. Finishes harmoniously with pepper, caramel and fruity agave. Medium long in duration.

Like the G4, the Terralta has the light touch on the XA aroma. This one is a bit more stony with a definite minerality upfront. It's always nice when the agave is still present in the aroma of an aged tequila like this. Nice peppery spice upfront that develops some cinnamon and baking spice notes. The finish lingers for a good long time. 12/30/2016 - 4th Annual Xmas XA tasting.

Aroma: Very light and mild. I get a bit of pepper, cinnamon and caramel. Possibly a slight hint of oak. Flavor: Flavor is very similar to the aroma. Bits of pepper with lots of caramel and some oak on the finish. Nothing overpowering and because it's so light I think I even get a bit of agave. Finish: Nice strong finish that's not too overpowering. Very solid.

A very smooth, soothing aroma. It has hints of cherry and vanilla. The taste brings more cherry/berries and adds cinnamon with a little agave. I know it sounds odd but it is fantastic. The classic Terralta finish (watery, smooth, some minerality) keeps the light agave and maintains the flavor profile. A definite must. This will stay on my shelf. A great sharing choice to bring out with your friends. They will love it.

It’s a decent value… my only complaint is it’s an extra Anjeo… it is still completely focused on cooked agave so much so, that the barrel flavors are overshadowed. When I pay for an Extra Anjeo I expect a very strong barrel flavor. While good it’s not amazing

cooked agave and mineral dominate the aroma, with some earth and oak. flavor leads with the cooked agave followed by cinnamon, butterscotch, ripe cherry, earth, vanilla and oak. can't believe this XA was only $69, a great value

lightly sweet nose. A light Extra Añejo, agave, peppery, hints of caramel throughout. Very enjoyable.

I’ve tasted through all of the El Pandillo brands at this point and I must admit that the Terralta Añejos have surprised me the most. Never have I found such beautiful nuances in an aged Tequila before. Orange blossom, blistered stone fruit, and stewed Los Altos agaves are the first new few notes that lured me in from the nose. Aged expressions of agave spirits are typically the last that I reach for, but this is seriously a cut above. Wow.

Aroma - bourbon, vanilla, roast agave Flavor - vanilla, pepper, sweet agave, whiskey Finish - warm in the mouth, but finish is pretty smooth, agave is the final note Needs a minute to open up in the glass. Excellent value!! One of the rare XAs that retains the agave!

Delicate notes of apricot & cooked agave on the nose. Sweet agave & fruit entry, pepper/light mineral mid palate and a long satisfying cinnamon/blk pepper finish. Balanced.

Wonderful! A lot of agave is still present, in perfect harmony with the barrel influence, i get a lot of apricot/peach ice tea on this one.
