It’s a powerhouse bottling that melds two worlds in an intriguing trend, one which’s not often seen within the tequila world. First up, there’s the nostril, which doesn’t instantly telegraph sherry however which slightly finds peppery agave as its major punctuation. Citrus fruit and a reasonable vanilla character are clearly evident, although whether or not the previous is pushed by the spirit or the barrel is an elusive query. On the palate, the sherry affect turns into clearer: Extra aggressively citrus-driven with notes of oxidized wine, albeit additionally fairly creamy and laced by way of with vanilla and notes of chai spice, apricot, and a few almond notes. The peppery notes of the agave return on the end, which echoes the extra conventional XA notes discovered on the nostril, any sherry affect fading into the background. Daring and pungent from begin to end, that is no additional anejo sugar bomb however slightly a weighty tequila that doesn’t appear to love to let free its grip.

80 proof. NOM 1603.
