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.

Great nose, it “screams” Carmerena although the color is light for an XA its has a wonderful sensation to the palate and a true sipper’s 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.
