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

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.

My favorite tequila so far, woody aromas and upfront sweet cooked agave. Strong character and taste with its 43%. Delicious aftertaste. Reason I gave 100 is because this this the benchmark of tequilas for my taste, I prod to be represented as Mexican with this product. I always keep 2 bottles of this on my shelve, cant ran out anytime. Mi tequila favorito hasta ahora, aromas amaderados y un dulce agave cocido presente. Un tequila con caracter debido a sus 43%. La razón de que l doy un 100 es que es mi punto de referencia. Me siento orgulloso de ser representado como Mexicano con este tequila. siempre tengo 2 botellas en mi cava, no puedo quedarme si reserva nunca.

Distinct nose - medicinal and piney but more going on and hard to pin down. Agave is less noticeable than the oak and alcohol. Flavors are strong and pronounced on the first sip but mellow and almost disappear after 2-3 sips.

This Tequila is exceptional. A more complex tasting. You can taste the agave, caramel, vanilla, and that bourbon taste. Highly recommended.

I’ve had this a few times before and figured I would give a rating. On the nose this time I’m getting butter and raisins. Tasting butterscotch and some orange chocolate, among other things definitely. Feels almost creamy, in a good way. I love it, it’s definitely one of my favorites.

Lots of oak and whisky on the nose. Sniff gently, surprising burn for tequila, but not out of bounds. Lovely oak and spice presence with agave cutting through. Heat dissipates quickly. Leaves citrus, banana candy and move agave behind.

One of my new favorite brands; Nice golden color; honey & alcohol on the nose; slight alcohol burn on the front of the tongue; warm honey notes with slight caramel across the palette; at a price north of $100 USD, not certain if I’ll purchase again; the Cascahuin Tahona is just so much better;

This is the goods. An Extra Anejo that should be the bench mark. Dried fruit, fresh vanilla, caramel and sweet cooked agave. Light wood and alcohol. I really like this XA, might be the favorite.
