Nose: Floral with tropical fruit. Ripe melons and bananas. A hint of tart apricot and minerals. Warming vanilla and almond aromas. Gentle white pepper and an herbal element trying to peek through. Flavors: Medium pepper heat initially crowds out some of my earlier floral and tropical impressions. As my palate acclimatizes, I pick up salty caramel, some nuttiness and a coffee note. Also some honey, licorice and delicate oaking. Lots of sweet agave still on center stage here. Some slight bitterness creeps in.

Another great one from 1139. First, the light color is just amazing for an XA. Then, the aroma is filled with vegetal and mineral notes and virtually no classic barrel. The agave is also clearly present in the aroma. The flavor opens with a nice pepper spice and flows to present the sweet agave and subtle mineral notes. The finish is medium length with a slight bitter almond taste. This is a great tequila. 12/24/2020 - 8th Annual Xmas XA tasting

Aroma : Sweet cooked agave with dried fruit, oak, and caramel. There is also some earth and mineral tones as well. Taste : Light bodied with a notable agave presence for an XA. There is some fruit, oak, and caramel here from the nose, as well as some butter and hazelnut. Finish : Long with sweet barrel notes, as well as a certain grassy quality that melds well with the earth and minerality. Another great expression from El Tesoro. Now I just need to get my hands on one of their special edition XA's.

This is tied with Carlos other perfection, Tapatio XA for the greatest nose ever. Caramel, agave and sweet vanilla get chased off by butterscotch and cinnamon. The taste is perfectly similar. No burn no need for anything but enjoyment. This is excellence

Light in color for an Extra Añejo, though not as light as cousin Ocho, this has a very powerful aroma in a jarrito glass. Cedar wood, agave creme brule/burnt sugar, cinnamon all set up the first sip. Pepper, both agave and black were the first impression on sipping, followed by caramelized agave, stone fruit, and oak. The wood is well done and allows the agave to come through the layers of aging. A long satisfying finish that is all about flavor and those layers and less about alcohol, though there is some of that with some nice lip buzz. Very, very well done as you might expect from La Alteña. I like that the bottle label pays homage to Don Felipe Camarena Orozco the founder of what is NOM 1139 in 1937.

Oh man! Cooked agave, mint, vanilla, pepper, more mint, baking spices in the back. The arrival is sweet and salty with still more mint. Medium-long drying finish of agave, minerals and you guessed it, mint. Love it!

Love the floral, almost perfume nose. Sweet cooked agave on entry with tropical fruit and light pepper mid palate. Nice long finish with light heat & various flavors lingering (fruit, anise, light barrel notes, cinnamon, etc). At this price point (sale $89) not sure which is better, this or Paradiso?

Nicely balanced xa, slight heat with light barrel notes. Prefer the Paradiso 5 yr over this expression

Layers and layers of aroma. Immediate note of lactic that mellows into banana, chocolate and cinnamon. Flavor is a rollercoaster. Oak, whiskey, agave, Smokey, sweetness and a dollop of catchers mitt.

Wow. Quite possibly my new favorite non-limited XA. I love Paradiso, but this is more my style. A natural progression from the wonderful Añejo, it’s an extremely well-balanced aged tequila. Agave is still present, with notes of oak, vanilla, caramel, earth, pepper, but no one flavor overwhelms the others. Great finish. Absolutely delicious.

Super clear for an extra Añejo. Really warm, inviting aroma. Agave, slight pepper, caramel, butterscotch, citrus and a little lactic on the nose. Agave carries through nicely on the pallet. Definitely get oak, mild cinnamon, vanilla and a little smoke. The finish has a little oaky bitterness with semisweet chocolate coming through and ends with a hint of almond and mint. Great expression but probably not what some would expect from a tequila that’s been aged 5 years. The agave still shines here and it’s complemented nicely by the barrel.

Wish I had the sophistication to accurately describe this. Unique in aroma and flavor. Unique color also - very yellow color. This drinks like a reposado to me. I don’t detect any normal barrel that you get from aging. I get like some fresh wood on the nose and agave. You cannot detect the alcohol at all. Has a really mellow flavor. It has a sweet, rounded profile. No rich/spice flavors that dominate some aged stuff. It does not remind me of an XA at all, but really delicious.

Very good with notes of cooked agave, anise, grass, vanilla, mexican chocolate, citrus, melon, papaya, canteloupes, mango, and pineapples. Find it to be the weak link among this, el Tesoro paradiso, and el Tesoro 80th anniversary

Strong flavor, a little bite to it. Over ice it’s nearly perfect.

Visually this looks just like the reposado, very light in color for an XA. Aromas are light with a sweet citrus smell that covers the alcohol smell. I have to say from this point on I was very disappointed because I really enjoy the reposado. For an XA I fully expected more barrel aging flavors and no blanco heat but that’s not what you get. For my money I would buy two bottles of the reposado and skip the extra Anejo and the Anejo they peaked at the reposado

its interesting but too cooked i would say. The aroma is overwhelming sometimes and has floral notes.

Used a jarrito glass for this expression and it was the right choice. An explosion of aromas that stay around for a good while. Impressed on how much cooked agave flavor I could taste accompanied of black pepper and oak towards the end. Very well done XA.

Interested 2 see how this compares 2 their Paradiso, one of my favorites for years; nice, light golden hue, great legs when swirled; light, sweet agave across the nose; earthy, agave with hints of butterscotch & caramel across the palate, warm light notes of agave, caramel & toffee on the backend; at $95+ this is expensive, but hey, they gotta pay 4 the “rebranding & new packaging!” I’ll definitely be purchasing more!

Wow, this is the best new tequila I’ve tried in a while. No nonsense clean-tasting tequila, that’s agave-forward with a touch of vanilla, oak, and cut grass before going down sooooo smooth. For an XA the oak is very subtle, and so is the color. This is near perfection.
