Anybody try this one?  I saw a bottle of the PVXA for $75 and wondering if it's worth buying. I noticed the anejo and xa don't claim "triple distilled" on the label like the b and r. From 1414.

I like it.  $75 is a fair price.  The agave and aging work well together.  I wish I could provide better tasting notes for you.  I've been meaning to write my review on this one for a while, so maybe this will motivate me to do so.

Thanks for the input. I figured what the heck after no response and picked up a bottle and just now checked back here. I'd say it's  hot peppery, not much sweetness, a little alcohol burn in the finish, not manipulated. Good, but didn't leave me thinking I found  something special. My notes are unreliable so curious if it's even close when you review. Cheers

I got to try some at Casa Mendell, and I thought it was decent but I didn't feel the need to run out and buy a bottle.
