This XA greets you with a juicy fruity aroma, which I love on an XA. I’m tasting agave, fruit, vanilla, slight bitters, and a kiss of oak. It’s a light XA in the 1579 style.

This continues brilliantly from the blanco and repo. Golden medium straw hue. Agave driven of course, cinnamon, butterscotch. honey, orange zest, citrus, clove, white pepper, plum, wood notes don't over power anything, but leaves a nice cedar feel, (oak, of course). Solid AF.

1579 has never disappointed and the Volans is one of the best examples of a great tasting tequila. Thank you Felipe!

Aroma : Cooked agave shines through with classic barrel notes of caramel, vanilla, oak, and some dried fruits. Taste : Notable agave presence alongside vanilla, butterscotch, oak, and more dried fruits. The minerals here are ever so light, but still noticeable after all that time in a barrel. The texture is nice and oily. Finish : Long lasting with a nuttier quality than the initial taste would let on. This one is interesting because the color in the glass is absolutely NOT indicative of an extra añejo. But then you take a sip and are welcomed with complex depth of barrel notes from an XA, AND agave you might see in a reposado. Another fantastic XA from El Pandillo.

Very light butterscotch, sawdust, baking spice and mineral. Baked apples, Cinnamon, cooked agave, white pepper. Short but interesting finish. Agave forward XA as expected and enjoyable, but leaves me wanting just a bit more.

Very light in color like other Pandillo XAs. Cooked agave is front and center in the aroma with minimal to no oak notes. The aroma complexity is filled out with citrus (lime?), light honey and a stony minerality. The flavor shows through as tequila first and foremost not a big barrel bomb. Great combination of cooked agave, warm baking spices (cinnamon, nutmeg) and black pepper spice. Also, an earthy minerality underlies all the other flavors. Long, warm finish. This is another great tequila out of 1579. 12-24-2019 7th Annual Xmas XA tasting

Volans Extra Anejo I’m a huge fan of El Pandillo - NOM1579. This XA is a special treat. On the nose I first detect sweet cooked agave then some vanilla and light oak. This tequila is very viscous, which feels great on the palate and lends to a longer finish. I taste cooked agave, butterscotch, white pepper, orange peel and a hint of oak. This is an excellent XA if you’re a true agave fan because the oak takes a backseat. This is a must have tequila! ¡Salud!

This XA from Felipe is as amazing as it gets. The barrel notes are fantastic. Its a quintessential Los Altos/El Pandillo tequila. I like that he’s using older barrels to let the agave shine through and not be dominated by wood. Although the beautiful wood is still present. What makes this so wonderful is that nothing dominates. The agave blends with the plum, ripe grapes, cherries, lime blossoms, vanilla and lightly toasted nuts. It’s fruity, its mineral-y, it’s aged to perfection. Nice work FC.

Barrel spice and agave on the nose. Nicely aged with minimal barrel influence. Felipe knows tequila.

Love the barrel notes here- pitted fruit, a hint of raisin, mellow cinnamon and vanilla. Not overly done for an XA. Flavor is tasty sweet agave with a slight mineral finish, characteristic of El Pandillo. A great new edition for tequila lovers.

Wow, where do I start with this one. First, it's fantastic. The color is as light as most reposados because it has been aged in 20+ year old used bourbon barrels for 3 1/2 years. But don't let the color fool you. The aroma and flavor shows every bit of character that you want in an extra añejo, including agave. You'll find a lot of gentle and natural vanilla and pitted fruits in the aroma and flavor, and a nice fruity flavor that lingers on the palate along with cooked agave. Only 1,000 bottles made, so this one is a rare find. Grab it if you can.

Nose it’s like standing outside a barrel room. Not in it but just outside on a breezy day with the smell of bleeding oak barrels wafting out and mixing with the blossoms then mixing with the fertile dirt and vegetal agave. Maybe the churro cart is down the street. Taste. Slightly medicinal with sweet cooked agave and cookie dough Finish. Hint of white pepper nice tingle in the center of your tongue. Solid XA. Not overly oak. But still lots of character.

Volans XA is another sensational spirit in this stellar line up. Priced at Sip Tequilla at $150, this isn't a budget buy, but the quality is remarkable. See Erica Boorim's write up, as she is spot on.

It feels great grabbing a tequila that comes from El Pandillo distillery because you know is going be great and something you will be enjoying and drink again and again. This guy is impressive in the sense that is bright, young and fresh compare to any other extra añejos. It has a lot of green notes in it which are hard to get in extra añejos. The aroma and flavours are very appealing and, makes you feel warm, welcome, it’s like going to a party where there will be “adults” but they know how to party because they have been around and know perfectly the timing to get things going. That is Volans extra añejo of Felipe Camarena. It’s the party You don’t want to miss it out.

unbelievably smooth, lightly oaky upfront but not overpowering, has a slight fruity aroma, caramel, earthy, agave sweetness throughout. Very even flavors though nothing seems to take over. Very pleasant to drink.
