Nose: El Ateo High Proof Blanco presents an intense bouquet, leading with a robust essence of cooked agave intertwined with caramelized accents. Its minerality imparts a sense of terroir, while the alcohol, surprisingly, maintains a harmonious balance. Taste: On the palate, this tequila harmonizes beautifully, with the dominance of cooked agave complemented by delicate notes of sweet baking spices, notably clove, and a subtle, invigorating fresh touch of mint. The overall impression is one of delightful complex profile. It offers a bold yet refined expression that will captivate aficionados with a nice tasting experience.

High-proof blanco tasting may 2024 NOM 1635 This is the only tequila produced at this distillery! Lote 1? L-80224AB 50% ABV Guanajuato agave let it open and breathe 30-45 mins. No lie! Really give this one time to breathe. Nose got better as it opened Nose: at first it is alcohol forward with some sweet agave and pepper. As it opened, it got complex. I got fruit, floral notes, anise, a little vegetal (green pepper) and some minerality. I kept getting more as it opened. Taste: sweet cooked agave, some banana and anise. The alcohol isn't as prevelent on the palate. It's actually very warm and nice. Finish: Nice warm finish that carries on Other: Legs slow and thick. Nice viscosity nice mouthfeel

Known internally as "The Big Bang" this is lote 01. This amps the regular Blanco to 11. Entry is smooth and then explodes in the mouth with as much roast agave as I can recall from recent high proof offerings. Natural sweetness dominates and then eases into a long lingering finish. Well done.
