What a treat! It’s hard to believe that the aroma of sweet, cooked, mature agave is the first to hit my nose after 14 years of aging. The high proof (50% abv) helps bring the agave forward. In addition, there are aromas of vanilla, dried fruit (cherry), and cinnamon. Sweet agave and dry flavor with a pleasant finish tinged with hints of spices, like nutmeg. A very complex tequila that comes together elegantly, no doubt due in part to the quality of agaves used.

Whoa! Aroma on this is amazing. Astonishingly, after 14 years in a barrel, there is still cooked agave here. Bravo! Also in the aroma: dried fruit, vanilla, caramel, licorice and butterscotch. The agave, caramel, and dried fruit continue in the flavor. The finish is where the 50% abv makes itself known. Long and rewarding. This might be too high in alcohol for some, but just fine for me. After 14 years in a barrel, I'm shocked that there's still agave left. Another masterpiece from Don Adolfo and his carefully cultivated crop of organic agaves!

Tried in a Riedel. Let it rest for 15 min before tasting. I love the color. It’s a rusty amber goldish color. Aroma: vanilla, maple, caramel, orange rind, black cherry, and dried fruit. Little to no alcohol coming through for being 100 proof. Flavor: creamy entry with a dried fruit, baking spice taste, a bit of some sweetness of caramel along with a nice heat that builds, a slight woody, burnt, bitterness likely due to the length of time in the barrel. Finish: a warmth of the alcohol heat but not overpowering, the heat builds up and has a long linger. You taste all the flavor on the side of you mouth as well as your throat. Left a numbness on the tip of the tongue. Overall, great tequila for 14 years in the barrel. The time in the barrel does not take away from taste.

The best tequila ever! Aged for 14 years and still has an tequila flavor profile. Tons of aromas and flavors evolving from cooked agave, caramel, pepper, apricot, oranges, citrus, mushrooms, and vanilla frosting. Got this for a similar price as Tears of Llorona and this is cheaper than Fuenteseca 10+ year tequilas.

For a 14 year tequila this wasn't as oak heavy as I thought it would be. Def notes of vanilla on the forefront with oak heat on the finish. Letting it sit for 15-20 mins helped tame the heat. A few drops of water helps tame as well.

Because of the extremely high brix level, some sweetness comes through after this was aged 14 years in barrels. There's some heat, being that it's 100 proof, but overall if you let it sit a little, it's very bold and tasty. Aromas of caramel, light vanilla, spice, alcohol, sweet whiskey/oak, brown sugar, toffee, apricot, light roasted nuts, light leather, and light smoke, with some fruit presence. Taste was medium oils, with caramel, honey, vanilla, apricot and spice with light nuts, finishing in a medium to long finish.

A wonderful experience at high proof this XA is aged for 14, yes 14 years!! and still has an undercurrent of agave along with the unmistakable Jack Daniels bourbon profile of stone fruit and toffee along with vanilla and caramel from the oak. More please...
