Vibrant nose - Agave heavy Extremely soft mid palate, no alcohol presence —vegetative, mineral forward, floral. Peppery. Wonderful finish, extremely agave forward throughout. Nice and clean. Minerality is strong, nice sweetness. Easy drinker.

It is very good, no wonder coming from El Pandillo. However, the value proposition vs. other offerings is hard given they produce such great tequilas. Will compare with the G4 madera to truly say if the price difference is worth it. The bottle is very nice though.

Strong agave notes and malolactic on the nose. Cooked agave, citrus and subtle cheese. Smooth short finish. Easy to sip.

One of the newcomers from 1579. I originally had this at the pool during the summer time and revisited it to see if I still felt the same way about it. Spoiler alert: I did. On the nose, cooled agave and pineapple dominate. Loads of citrus and a minerals, but that fruity pineapple note keeps coming in and out. There’s definitely a lot of other citrus noted but it shifts too fast for me to really pin it down. I want to say grapefruit, but then it’s lime. On the palate, this is full bodied and delicious agave. The 43% does this a lot of favors. That citrus comes through very distinctly, followed by a very mineral finish. Definitely some tropical fruit in there, and there’s something that just feels like like 1579, but I can’t really pinpoint exactly what it is. Overall a delicious tequila. Nice bottle, beautiful top to add to my collection, and very tasty. I’ve shared this with a few people and it’s been a hit. Definitely quality stuff and really par for the course for 1579. It’s different enough to be it’s own thing, but similar enough to know you’re getting the quality you’d expect from El Pandillo.
