NOM 1123 Aroma: Cooked agave, citrus, cinnamon, mineral, brine Flavor: Big cooked agave, earthy cinnamon, wet cement, mineral, brine, olive, anise, pepper. Great mouthfeel. Beautiful long finish. This is a great blanco, thanks to Greg @aged_agave for the opportunity to try it. That said, my value rating is a 4 (even though my pour was on the house), as I'm basing it on the liquor store shelf price. Take out the value rating on TMM and this is a 90+. It really is fantastic though

A good sipping tequila with mild agave, pepper, and earthy notes. The tahona definitely adds complexity to this tequila.

A very clean tasting tequila with mild agave flavor. Approachable for new tequila enthusiasts as there aren’t overpowering notes of alcohol or burn.

Tasted blind against a number of other blanco tequilas. Aroma: Citrus, light pepper, herbs - thyme primarily, and cooked agave. Taste: A full-bodied taste with a silky mouthfeel, slightly sweet and grassy. Finish: A mellow but flavorful finish of agave, notes of lime, herbs, and black pepper. An excellent tequila, but it comes with a steep price point.

This a delicious blanco, Tasted the gray label from 1123, 6 yr agaves, cement fermentation gives a different dimension. Great flavor profile, of citrus, anise, cooked agave, light pepper. Price point is on the high side, but it is excellent

Feb 25, 2023 SANTANERA TAHONA tasted blind in pepe's tahona blind 2/25/23 Note: these samples were 1/2 oz so it was a bit challenging to get the full essence. I let it sit about 20 mins to open. nose: Anise, agave, pepper, white pepper, vegetal, grass, some funky cheese, malalactic notes. taste: Nose is more complex than taste and finish is a little flat. Deducted a few points for value, at $125 i prefer calle23, Ocho Puntas or 7L70, i.m.o. Rated 86 TMM = aroma excellent,  flavor good, finish shirt, value avg
