Another masterpiece from the Rosales family. Melted butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and spice lead the way before cooked agave takes over. Subtle oak notes present, but it doesn’t overpower the agave. I get raisins at the back end before a warm finish. Bravo

Aroma : Dried fruit with pear, raspberry. Almond, vanilla, and caramel. Some baking spices and a small touch of cooked agave. Taste : Full bodied with the same dried fruit notes with cooked agave as well. Oak, nutty with almond, and light sweetness with vanilla and caramel. Finish : Long lasting and prolongs dried fruit notes with a little bit of cherry, and the same nutty and sweet notes from before. This tequila hit all the right notes for me. Plus I love that there was cooked agave AND dried fruit notes. With many Añejos and Extra Añejos it seems like you only get one or the other. This is top tier.

Lots of oak on the nose, need to let it breath for a bit after initial pour. Very soft flavor.

Cherries and tropical fruit on the nose, with hints of agave. Initial taste of pepper, immediately followed by tannins and caramel. Long and complex finish, nice heat on the tongue and throughout. An exceedingly interesting XA that hasn’t lost its soul in the barrel.

Appearance: Dark amber color. A corona forms, and eventually some of the slowest tears that I have ever seen. Nose: Caramel, vanilla, ripe berries, green olives and vibrant baking spices. Hint of oak marries well with the agave. Flavors: Explosive. Baking spices, toffee, cafe au lait, pepper, and nice round fruit and agave. Balance and finesse make this exceptional.

This México only tequila has a nice golden color. The nose starts with caramel and cooked agave. There are notes of creme brulee, vanilla and orange peel. The taste is a sweet mix of agave, oak and pepper. The finish is smooth and short. Overall this is a great tequila but I think it drinks more like an Anejo than an XA. If you can find a bottle, purchase it!

Dried fruit (apricot, apple, plum?), pecan, vanilla & caramel nose. Aromas come through in flavor with dry American Oak finish balanced with sweet agave. Real, rounded and delicious. One of my favorites.

This is one incredible extra añejo. I almost don't know where to start. First, the aroma is so killer that it almost brings me to tears. So real, honest, legit. This is how it's supposed to be, folks. No additives, no bullshit, 100% what it's all about. Cooked agave, yes. And dried fruit, cherry, nuts, almonds, caramel, vanilla, peach. Flavor is intense dried fruit and agave with some caramel and vanilla. Not the fake "caramel" and "vanilla" additive that can be easily dumped into a batch, but the real stuff that can only come from spending a long time in a barrel. Balanced like a fine crafted work of art that can only be done with time and patience. I SO wish more tequilas could be like this. It is (currently) only available in Mexico, so coming home with this (as a non-mexican) is a serious score. <3

Aroma: Very nice and clean aromas of cooked agave, with a slight vanilla sweetness. Taste: Sweet on the tip of the tongue, creamy smokiness with a flavor of cooked agave and pepper. Finish: This is where it’s falls short for me, a grassy cooked agave overwhelms the palate, along with an alcohol burn that I find more pleasant in other tequilas. Overall: Was looking forward to trying this one, and it’s an excellent tequila, it’s commendable what Cascahuín is able to do with an additive-free tequila like this one. That said, I find myself preferring other premium XA tequilas to this one.

An initial heat that opens up nicely. Lightly sweet, peppery, spicy yet smooth all the way through with a bit of a fiery finish. Quite delicious.

So happy I bought this XA. Well balanced Agave and barrel flavors. It’s one of my favorites! Wish I could taste the French Oak version.

Cascahuin XA: this has absolutely wow-ed a blanco purist. Cherry jumps out first, then caramel and a beautiful spicy oak that doesn’t overpower. Agave is still there, and this is one hell of a sloooowww classy fade on the finish. A complex caramel covered cherry, just amazing. As you let it open up and enjoy it walnut and hazelnut appear too. Yes, there are wonderful XA’s.

A little bit of heat at first pour at 43% to be expected. Ten minutes resting evens it out. earthy, cellar type musk. bit caramel not too sweet agave still present. Memories of Mexico in a bottle reminds me of barrel rooms.

Strong oak aroma. Cooked agave and oak flavor with a little sweetness...caramel and vanilla. Slight pepper to it. Slight burn that fades pretty quickly.

This is a delicious tequila and definitely in my top 5. It has a lovely cooked agave flavor, with no shortage of complexity. If you prefer more delicate notes (with some sweetness of vanilla, cinnamon, and dried fruit), this is definitely a tequila worth trying. It runs neck and neck with Tapatio Excellencia for me; but, it’s far more delicate. I guess it depends on my mood and how bourbon-y I’m feeling. Moreover, it’s a lot cheaper! My high scoring is reinforced by its reasonable price point. An excellent sub $100 XA...yes, please!

Very delicate flavour - a little light on the nose. This is a very elegant tequila, and has no artificial notes. I will be back. I keep saying tequilas are my favourite, but this I definitely one of them.

First few times I tried this, I was getting a lot of heat and it was distracting. After coming back several times over a couple of months, it mellowed. Get a lot of caramel on the nose and in taste. Alcohol is there. More heat than a lot of other XAs. Spice and pepper. Lot of agave for an XA. No heavy whiskey barrel stuff going on. Beautiful color - might be one of the better looking tequilas in the glass I’ve had. Really nice oil and mouthfeel. Coats the glass beautifully. After giving it some time, really strong overall. Good price point for XA. Got it for $100 or so. Deserving of a buy and the money.
