Excerpt: On the palate, again it comes across with well-matured caramel and vanilla notes, plus secondary notes of banana, orange peel, cloves, and oak-driven spices. The finish follows suit, racy with spices and a bit of heat.
Excerpt: The mouthfeel is thick and unctuous, providing the perfect vehicle for deep oak, agave, roasted pineapple, vanilla pound-cake and piloncillo sugar. Hints of saddle leather, cinnamon, red apple and pear are evident.

Roast-y and rich on the nose, bold sourdough, pepper, baking spice and honey. A touch of rye bread, it’s malty and rich, savory and packed with spices.
Pleasant on the palate, moderate mouthfeel. Maple, a touch of honey, pepper and clove with a hint of anise. Agave character is full and bright, toasted sesame and sourdough notes accompany.
Long finish, spice forward and pepper laden, the sweetness of the agave pairs perfectly, making this a satisfying departure for a pour I was entirely uncertain about.
Overall, this is quite nice. I like it quite a bit, and more than I was expecting to, if we’re being frank. It excels in balance, and while not the boldest or most powerful Extra Anejo on the shelf, it’s quite satisfying if the budget permits.
