Aroma : Full of cooked agave, vanilla, oak. This also carries some fruity undertones in the form of apple/pineapple/pear notes. Taste : The fruity undertones from the aroma carry through strongly here, accompanied by agave, citrus, and some minerality. There is also a hint of spice here that contrasts the sweeter fruit flavors, and the texture is oily and full bodied. Finish : Decently long and carries stronger notes of oak and vanilla that invite you back for another sip, and another, and another... This is like Cascahuín Extra Añejo's long lost cousin when it comes to the cooked agave/fruity flavor dynamic with some barrel notes; one of the possible routes a distiller may take in making a great Extra Añejo. In other words, buy this.

Another classic Pandillo/Felipe Camarena XA with its pale color and complex aroma of cooked agave, citrus, sweet fruit (apple, plum) and underpinning minerality (wet stone, clay). Spicy heat sits right on top of sweet fruit flavor at the open. (This is a contrast to many tequilas that open with sweetness then shift to spice. A really nice blend here.) These two continue to blend and dissipate at a similar pace in a mid to long finish. Again, the higher ABV is hardly noticeable in terms of heat but does push the agave and other flavors forward. Quite a bit of similarity between the Pasote and the Volans but to my taste the Pasote comes out slightly ahead. 12-24-2019 7th Annual Xmas XA tasting

This 4 year XA from Felipe is special. The nose is complex. I detect cooked agave, sweet juicy plum , vanilla and some slight oak. I taste a sweet mineral brine, cooked agave and toasted brûlée. The finish is as wonderful as the first taste. This is truly a sipping tequila. ¡Salud!

Aged 4 years in used barrels, this XA from the mind of Felipe Camarena has a golden color with some copper highlights. Presented in a polished, heavy glass bottle and a basic clamshell case this resembles the well known Avion 44 package. At a similar price point to the A 44 this XA has a very different flavor profile with a full and robust flavor imparted by Bib & Tucker barrels in El Pandillo's cellar. At 45% ABV this has a ton of spice on the palate from agave and barrel spice of caramel, oak, clove as well as a nice bite from the higher ABV. The taste is full with natural sweetness and some nice oiliness and really blooms with a small amount held in the mouth and worked around the tongue and gums for 20-30 seconds before swallowing. This finishes with a hint of bitter from the barrel but with everything else going on it isn't worth taking score away.

Light in color. Heat, whiskey, cooked agave. I wanted to really like this since I am a huge Pasote Blanco fan. Will need to retaste at another time. Didn’t feel it lived up to its reviews.

Way too much resin flavor, and not enough sweetness. Seems and looks much more like a young reposado in untoasted barrels than an extra anejo. Might be interesting if it were $100 cheaper. At this price point it's completely outclassed by every other tequila I've tried

Pasote does an excellent job with this extra Añejo. It brings buttery smooth aroma and flavor throughout with subtle hints of vanilla and caramel. Very smooth on the tongue without being overly sweet.

Light amber color for an extra anejo. of course all Felipe's tequilas are typically lighter in color to most other tequilas but they do not lack in complexity. Peppery nose, cooked agave taste with hint of caramel and vanilla. Nice, rich mouthfeel. Rich consistent finish that I come to expect Pasote tequilas.

Nose is wonderfully bright cooked agave, nutmeg, cinnamon and citrus and it just delivers Taste is just a fantastic as the bright agave turns into cinnamon for a moment and then solid black pepper. Just as you appreciate the pepper, the ride starts again as caramelly/vanilla finish lasts for the perfect amount of time. What a journey

This Extra Anejo from El Pandillo and Felipe Camerena is a treat! On the nose you get the crisp water smell from the use of rain water and natural spring water in the making of this amazing tequila. It has a nice oily mouthfeel. The taste of citrus comes through with the wonderful explosion of cooked agave. It also has a nice influence from the Dickel barrel used but weirdly and surprising enough not what you expect. While it does have a nice vanilla flavor some other flavors surprise you like grilled pineapple! I don't get any chocolate or caramel from the barrel and I seriously don't mind it at all! It's a must have for anyone serious about tequila. Wonderful experience!
