This Lot 1 was from Felipe Camarena's last barrels, so if you have the 1st lot, treasure and savor it. Not as dark as his other XAs but still a worthy bottle to continue his legacy. Agave, fruity, herbaceous, buttery, butterscotch, caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, spices, not too oaky. Nicely balanced. Some lot 1s may still be out there and the price seems to be going up on these. I grabbed a case upon release at 69 and now I see them at up to 169...

Aroma: Light, clean aromas of honeyed cooked agave, minerality, and sweet vanilla. Taste: Naturally sweet agave and honey, with the same clean minerality. Finish: A tasty conclusion of flavorful agave notes combined with vanilla, light caramel, and cinnamon. The flavor lingers for a while and does not lose any of its pleasantness. Overall: A superb, well-crafted tequila.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Amazing mellon when I opened the bottle and in the glass. Vanilla. Straw color. Full body and great agave flavor. Only slightly sweet. Really enjoy this. Long finish.

Strong tahona essence and great earth and cooked agave notes. I’m not as distinguished to detect the other complexities but sure are they nice. Awesome tequila, great mouth and finish colored with herbal notes with subtle barrel aging flavors. Not your super sweet extra

Taste: cooked agave, subtle vanilla sweetness (natural), with a black pepper that hits mid palate. Easy, tingling tongue finish. Great buy for the price.

On the nose is sweet cooked agave, oak, white pepper, pineapple, vanilla. The taste now are just as the nose, but a bit bitter from middle to finish. This feels like it was a combination/blend if Paradiso with some Añejo.

This stuff is awesome. On the nose, some cantaloupe, creamy agave and maybe a little orange. On the palate, I’m now getting heavy dose of melted dark chocolate immediately followed by an orange peel with more citrus and melon. Understated oak (which I prefer). Thick mouth feel and Kick ass finish that lingers for days. Thus far the only anejo I can see myself craving in the summer. The best. At $110 easily the best valued extra anejo I’ve had. 10/10

Oak and butter dominate the nose with scents of charred wood. Smooth and soft mouthfeel. Surprising appearance of sweetness of cooked agave in the flavors and the oak that was so prominent on the nose becomes wonderfully balanced in the flavor profile. Finish brings forth floral essences. This is additive-free so the complexity and balance and evolution of aromas and flavors is something to behold. I kept going back to the glass over and over to confirm what my senses were telling me.

Lot 1—An agave nose with a light hint of sweetness and vanilla. The taste is more agave that is smooth and creamy. The finish adds some pepper to the agave and vanilla. The high scores are an honest reflection of this product.

Tried this during a Tequila Tasting event. After going through a Blanco, Reposado, and an Añejo this was the ultimate price. It was amazing. Creamy, caramel, dark chocolate finish. Not too oaky. One of the best tequilas out there.

Am I actually getting melon notes from this? Yep. This is a great extra anejo with just enough oak to give it complexity without overwhelming the agave with sweetness or whiskey notes.

Lot EA001, light color for 5 years in a bourbon barrel, burnt carmel predomiates the layers of flavors and a nice finish. Best tequila in the ET lineup and best value at about $100.

Wonderful extra añejo with notes of oak and black pepper on the nose and butter minerals and vanilla on the tongue. Would pair wonderfully with a cigar or a nice grilled steak. You can’t go wrong with this aged one!
