Black pepper, cooked agave, minerality, great complexity. One of the best!

Agave, citrus sweetness, herbal aromas. On taste it was equally balanced with agave, herbal and minerality. A little burn on the back end, but smoother by the 3rd sip. Definitely a great tequila and even with the price a good value. Don’t buy just to put on it on your shelf. Drink it with friends.

While this is a Special Release it isn’t the limited release that they claim. 70k bottles were produced using 700ml bottles. This blanco is made using wild agave and it’s 100% tahona crushed and bottled at 42%ABV - 84 proof. - I love the nose. It shouts clean well-made additive-free traditionally made blanco. Immediately I smell earthy minerals and cooked agave with some pleasant alcohol vapors. There’s some white pepper and lemon-lime citrus. The more it opens up and the more I nose it I start picking up some mint and grass. It’s slightly vegetal but with the softness of floral notes. It’s not overly complicated but it’s SOLID. - While sipping I taste the buttery cooked agave along with some natural sweetness. Once I consume the sip the pepper appears. It’s not overpowering, it’s pleasant. There’s a mix of white and fresh jalapeño peppers that meld to give it some heat. The creamy agave is also present on the mid-palate. It has a full-bodied mouthfeel. There are some slight earthy and vegetal notes with some light overlying lemon-lime citrus zest notes and a medium finish. - This is a great blanco and it can be found if you’re looking for it but it’s going to cost at least 120. I love the tequila but not the price. - ¡Sorbe sabiamente!
