Nose; agave / vanilla/ pepper / oak / apple/ pear / grapefruit/ lenongrass/ orange blossom/ chocolate / maple Taste: sweet agave and pepper blast / vanilla/ caramel/ cinnamon/ tea / pineapple/ peach / orange peel / peppermint Finish: sweet agave through and through/ clean low viscosity with an enjoyable peppery finish This extra anejo has some great nose and palate notes. The nose is weak compared to the blast of sweet and pepper on first through last taste. There aren’t very many barrel notes here and it may be that the agave and pepper blast just overwhelm any barrel tastes.

5 Anos release. Nice nose and palate but a bit muted and not a lot going on for me personally. The 110 proof XA wows me.

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.

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

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.

This extra anejo from El Pandillo impressed, and maybe, just maybe showed me that a well aged tequila(3-4 years) can be just as enjoyable as an outstanding blanco or lightly aged expression. On first glance Terralta XA looks unassuming, a very light amber color, but upon closer inspection tartrates are seen dancing throughout the bottle. The nose has a defining bourbon barrel characteristic along with vanilla, dark maple, and cooked agave. The palate has much to unpack; vanilla, caramel, subtle roasted marshmallow, black berry, plum, cooked agave, pepper, oak with a minerality throughout the front, mid, & back palate. A good viscosity and a mid to long finish rounds out this stellar XA. Perhaps my favorite part of this expression is how, although it clearly has an aged profile, Terralta XA sticks to its roots with delicious cooked agave center stage. I was able to pick this up for a ridiculous 40$ at a local store and my value criterion will reflect it(10). This sets the standard for extra anejo tequila. LT0001XA40 25/03/2019

What a great extra Anejo It’s fresh!!! Believe it or not, it’s supposed to be an extra añejo, but its flavours are young and natural. It all comes together exactly how it should be. All those flavours are tight. They’re well-balanced and well-integrated. It’s a young extra añejo in the sense that it is not heavy and that the wood is present with the freshness of the agave. The agave comes into play, and it doesn’t fade away. Everybody should drink.

Agave, Stone Fruit, Melon and cooked agave that takes me back to Arandas. I feel so cheated that I slept in this one for so long. buttery carmel, cinnamon, and black pepper on the finish! What in exquisite Extra Añejo. This one easily makes it to my top 5 Extra Anejos.

Easy sipping, well balanced XA that is soft enough to let the agave be the star of the show. Nose: cooked agave, oak, cinnamon, vanilla, barrel spices, berries, caramel, butterscotch. Palate: cooked agave, cinnamon, oak, vanilla, caramel, butterscotch, baking spices, and minerals from the use of the deep well water that Terralta is known for. Bonus for value as I was able to get this for $70.

Aroma - fruity+++(pears, green apples, artificial grape candy), vanilla, sweet agave Taste - sweet agave shines through, vanilla, raw green peppers, spearmint. Finish - bitter and earthy. Very short. Pepper lasts the longest. Very good XA for the blanco lover. The color is lighter than others I have sampled. Agave shines through on the taste. It has the savory agave notes that I love from 1579. Smells and tastes great. It’s sweet which I like. It turns bitter for me on the finish though. Great value. I purchased it for $83.

The nose starts with a faint hints of alcohol, followed by cooked agave, vanilla, caramel, dried fruit (raisin) and barrel spice. Straw colored in the glass - super light color for an XA. Medium-thin but silky mouthfeel. The flavor follows the nose - sweet, agave-forward, dark chocolate, some cherry and barrel-spice with a mild alcohol presence like a quality grappa. Finish is medium-long and a bit medicinal for me.

A very solid XA in my opinion. Agave is still shining through but in no way overwhelmed by the barrel. I’ve heard that after a week it opens up even more so I’ll update my review then.

The first pour was a bit underwhelming but after a week the nose and flavors really shined. This may be the best XA for the price ($80-$99).
