Grade: A (Drinkhacker)

"Big with caramel and vanilla on the nose, it comes across a lot like an extra anejo, with well-integrated but subdued agave notes and a slight touch of lemon peel. Much the same on the creamy, lush palate, where an herbal quality is a bit more evident along with a sprinkle of barrel char and some toasted cereal notes. Whether this is all driven by the agave, the rye, or both is indeterminate, but whatever the case is, the addition is complementary and engaging, adding a little kick to an otherwise dessert-heavy experience that might otherwise come across as a little too sweet. Surprisingly light in color, the tequila tricks you up front into assuming its barrel influence will be restrained, bringing things closer to blanco territory. Not so: This is a groovy, seductive tequila that’s built for after-dinner sipping and reflection. Lovely."

"A plethora of fruit flavors mingle with rich, toffee sweetness and vegetal spice on the nose, translating to a rye-tinged palate that's sure to entice whiskey enthusiasts and agave heads." - Vinepair (93 pts)

"Knob Creek, which is recognized for its approachability because of the relatively low rye content in its mash bill, contains less than 55% rye. So unlike many high-rye expressions, it delivers more sweetness than spice—and that same distinct characteristic follows through in El Tesoro’s latest release. There’s a rich (but balanced) dark chocolate-caramel note that soon gives way to warm baking spices and orange rind—certainly the kind of flavors that make for an añejo that does justice to its blanco." - Forbes
