Querendón Blanco - I’m getting a unique bouquet of aromas. There is a creamy quality with hints of red macerated grapes which I believe is coming from their proprietary yeast that they extracted from wine grapes. There’s an underlying buttery quality and soft alcohol vapors. I’m reminded of a lemon meringue and almond paste but more floral with some hints of sweetness and a fleeting baking spice note. - I taste a minty melon note up front. It then gets creamy from the cooked agave. There’s a spearmint note before the white pepper hits. It has a thin to medium body with a herbal quality. It’s short finish but the sweetness and pepper linger. It’s a pleasantly unique blanco with many layers but also perfect for people that are just starting to sip tequila neat. - AUSTIN TEXAS OWNED
I love that this is additive free and 100% single origin Agave. Fragrant floral aromas, indicative of Amatitán. Hints of banana, cinnamon and white pepper. Beautifully balanced with a delicious lingering finish that can only be achieved from slow roasting in an Horno.
This nose has some classic notes of French oak spice. That FO sweetness punches through as well. There’s some buttery cooked agave that sits behind that spice. That grape note from the blanco is still present along with some floral alcohol vapors. It’s a really pleasant FO Repo nose. - The spice hits first with a FO backbone. The spice is nice and warm and the FO provides that unique sweetness. The cooked agave creates the creamy mid palate and the FO spice accompanies some pepper to create the lingering finish. The alcohol provides some palate numbness which allows for easier subsequent sips. - 2017 Release from NOM1466, Estate grown Amatitán agave, Horno cooked, Roller milled, SS Fermentation w/o fibers, Proprietary yeast, Deep well water, SS Still, 40% ABV - French White Oak aged - AUSTIN TEXAS OWNED
