As I approach the glass I first get a sweet floral scent and then when I get closer I pick up the mix of minerality, brine, petrichor and cooked agave. There is a hint of American oak right at the end. The aromas make themselves known but they don’t overpower your nose. The buttery cooked agave hits first and then the right behind follows a nice pepper and jalapeño. The minerality and brine are the backbone. The anise is nice and round and it sits in the middle. These flavors meld well are are soft on the palate due to it being oxygenated. This tequila deserves to be enjoyed slowly. Right now it’s being enjoyed by some lucky Texans but Don Vicente will be expanding. Watch for it!

Compared to the Blanco this is a sweet and balanced reposado. Very easy to drink, buttery and oily. The ageing really helped mellow the boldness of the Blanco, this is a good one. If the reposado is an indicator the XA is sure to be a very good one.

Bold mineral and grassy notes, very full mouthfeel. I enjoyed it very much, another good offering from El Pandillo. However, I could see this being too much for people that like the more gentle profile that G4 or Volans has. Kind of reminds me of the “Fibroso” experiment (although not as good). Thanks Don Pepe for the free sample!

NOM1579 - El Pandillo I can smell the cooked agave and then some freshly sliced green bell pepper. There is some minerality and hints of black pepper and wet clay. Its a nice balanced and clean aroma with no detectable alcohol vapors. There is a faint floral note that keeps the nose on the softer side. Overall I’d described the aroma as sweet agave and earthy. On the palate I get buttery cooked agave and natural agave sweetness. Then I get some vegetal notes; green pepper, jalapeño. There a nice minerality throughout and some black pepper on the back end. It has a nice mouthfeel and finish. The oxygenation keeps the flavors nice and rounded while the pepper still punches through and lingers on the finish. I don’t detect any alcohol burn on the finish.

This is a very well round tequila. The more you drink the more you want. I can definitely smell the minerals at first glance then smell of agave hits smell very good. You can definitely taste the cooked agave when you drink it the sweet taste along with the minerals make this my favorite Blanco.
