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.

Nose rich with cooked agave , oak, cinnamon, vanilla , butter and butter scotch. The mouthfeel is velvety smooth with a long sweet finish. The palate boasts cooked agave, cinnamon and fruit, including berries l, honey and barrel spice. It is complex and well balanced. Amazing product from El Pandillo, especially considering the price! Definitely one of my favorite XAs

Bottle: 25/03/2019, LT0001XA40 Appearance: Hay Nose: Cooked agave, oak, vanilla, minerality, tropical and dried fruit, maple, cinnamon, cream soda, baking spice, wet cement, mint, eucalyptus, butter, molasses, tobacco, white pepper, licorice, and cherry…delightfully sweet, fruity, and creamy. Palate: Cooked agave, oak, barrel spice, leather, black and white pepper, tobacco, minerality, butter, earth, orange blossom, clove, baking spice, licorice, smoke, cedar, nutmeg, raisin, cinnamon, vanilla, and cherry…far more earthy and way less sweet than the nose. Finish: Cooked agave, cinnamon, and earth…medium-long finish, like chasing a blanco with a cinnamon candy. Overall: This

Compared lot 2: LT0002XA40 bottled on 02/10/2020 with lot 3: LT0003XA40 bottled on 16/07/2021, lot 3 has a round seal on the label that states: Limited Release 5 años! Lot 3, points given are for this lot; which is higher than lot 2: Color: yellow to dark yellow. Aroma: almost intense sweet cooked agave! Minty, stone fruit sweetness, very fresh for a 5 y.o. XA, very light wood notes. Palate: sweet cooked agave, minty & fresh, maybe even slightly too minty, anise, red cherries, slightly creamy, wood doesn’t get in the way! Pleasant to drink. Finish is medium to long, agave notes become sweeter in the end and persists! Lot 2 (84 points): Color: dark yellow. Aroma: more pronounced wood notes than lot 2, covers up some sweetness and aromas, and it has a very slight oxidized sensation. Palate: slight oxidized sensation in the mouth too, less agave notes. Finish has more wood notes and less agave can be perceived.

Simply put: My favorite tequila I’ve had. Wonderfully smooth agave and caramel flavor. It’s aroma will knock your socks off (can I get a three-wick candle from Bath & Body Works?) Absolutely perfect. Wish I could rate the value higher but at $100 a bottle, it’s definitely worth it…but “value” is a stretch.

This is very light. The nose is sweet. The flavor is lacking but the finish is all right

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
