Nose: fair amount of cooked agave, caramel, vanilla, oak, and dried cherries Flavor: agave, dried fruit, butterscotch, earthy, lime zest, and light spice Finish: nice long finish with agave and dried fruit

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!

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.

Very light for an XA. Agave forward, with nice balance of fruit and spices. Oak is there but not as much as I expect from an XA. Definitely more of a traditional tequila flavor than barrel flavored like many XAs. Still very enjoyable and different from your average XA.

First time tasting this EA I was a bit disappointed. I went back and tasted again had a different opinion. The light flavor of oak was different from most EAs. Agave was up front with a nice peppery finish. The product has no legs at all, almost thin to the eye. The flavor certainly makes up for that. The finish is pleasant, it has a nice long lasting flavor on the pallet. I will enjoy this one all winter long.

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.
