Nose: agave / mineral/ cinnamon/ earth / vanilla/ grapefruit/ orange/lemongrass / Taste: agave sweet grenade / cinnamon/ banana/ apple/ grapefruit/ mineral/ spearmint Finish: very nice watery mouthfeel/ lingering sweet and cinnamon/ alcohol This high proof blanco has a nearly perfect amount of alcohol- the higher abv is allowing for a very bold version of the flavors within. The sweet agave and cinnamon notes tend to be the key players until you get to the back of the swallow where some earthiness and minerals pop in. A very enjoyable experience!!

Oh My! Lote 500, batch 012 is a HP tahona Blanco which has been fermented in brick and fiberglass with bagasse and double distilled before being rested in glass demijohns for more than 7 months before bottling. At 49.5% ABV you need some caution approaching this distillate. Small sips will prepare the palate for tasting this and doing so will reward you with an explosion of agave in the mouth like few others can do. Nose has minerality, agave and ethanol. After letting this sit in the high proof jarrito for a few minutes and then sipping, this has a nice natural sweetness right from the start which fades on the tongue to some mid tongue buzz and a fuzzy fade of ethanol and roast agave. This is so good...

Nose: agave / pepper / smoke / minerals / earth / apple / lemon / bell pepper/ lemon grass / lavender/ alcohol Taste: agave sweet / so delicate!! / incredibly balanced flavors / smoke / earth / apple / touch of citrus / spearmint/ touch of salt Finish: watery clean with almost no viscosity/ quick clean finish that even removes a lot of the smoke/ lingering soft sweet agave flavor and a cinnamon like after taste This is a treat for everyone except those who don’t like smoke. There’s a great flavor and aroma on this tequila and it is well balanced. It’s very much able to make the smoke a supporting role that then amplifies the other flavors snd smells. It’s possible that if the smoke wasn’t there that many people might think it to be a favorite blanco.

Tasted this one blind on a Fuerte Friday. So this one is going to be great for some people and for others it will not be their cup of tea. On the nose there is smoke. After getting through the smoke you can find some agave. It is earthy and vegetal. Taste is once again, smoke. Sweet agave does come through on the taste. You do get a strong hit of alcohol. Other tastes that stand out are citrus, black pepper and olive. Has a nice mouthfeel. Finish is still strong on the smoke with a bit of mint. I you are a Mezcal fan. This is a tequila for you.

Tasted as part of a Fuerte Friday blind. Nose is agave forward with a smells of orange, citrus, flowers and lemon. On the tongue, beautiful sweet agave, citrus and black pepper. I also get mineral and brine. There is a little bit of alcohol but it is not overpowering. The ABV influences the flavor and works very nicely. Minor complaint is that the finish is too short. Highly recommended.
