JAJA Blanco NOM1137 I get some agave and alcohol on the nose. There is also a vegetal and hay note. I first taste a lot of herbal notes that then turns into a slight peppery note before ending minty. The nose and taste dont line up and when I rub in between my hands im left with a slightly sticky residue and that isnt a good thing. I was expecting more from this product. I do like the bottle and label but if the juice isnt good then all you are left with is a nice package. UPDATE - I reviewed the JAJA Blanco from NOM1416 and it’s better!

Starts off with all the right smells, roasted agave and almonds. My English father would love this, tastes exactly like fruit cake & marzipan, fruit cake is my sworn enemy. Once all the painful childhood Christmas memories fade, the finish has a sour note halfway down your tongue, not really offensive but not a flavour I’m after when drinking tequila. Overall it’s ok, just not what I’m looking for in a tequila.

JAJA Blanco NOM 1416 There are a medley of soft aromas; agave, vegetal & pepper. They are equally striving to take the lead. I taste a peppery agave with hints of mint. The finish is a lingering pepper tingle like peppermint without the overwhelming sweetness. This is a good blanco for the price and an improvement over the prior batches from another distillery. Its a move in the right direction. Salud!

I’m totally puzzled why so many rated well above 80 points. From 1137,the agave notes were covered by an odd, not necessarily pleasant aroma. Mouth feel was thin and dropped out quickly. Finish has a bitter, unpleasant finish. I feel my score was generous.
