Aroma: black pepper, cooked agave, earth, wet grass, butter, salt brine, eucalyptus. Really nice nose. Reminds of a warm cologne in a way. Flavor: lemon zest, cooked agave, hints of vanilla and cinnamon, some minerality which reminds me of a fresh rain, and a soft vegetal finish with a lingering smoky element. The is a really nice supper. Not overly complex but still keeps you guessing. Mouth feel is very soft and leans more viscous. Almost no burn whatsoever. Very solid blanco!

Tastes old school, sweet and clean. Good value considering it’s ~500 MXN. Perfect for sipping or mixing, would recommend as a budget option easily available in Mexico.

Once I open this screw top bottle I get a nice whiff of fresh agave. After pouring a sample into my stolzle jarrito I can see the nice legs and tears. The agave scent is very pleasant. It’s clean and accompanied with a slight vegetal note, faint minerality and some subtle sweetness. There’s some crisp citrus too but mostly it’s just good clean cooked agave that’s free from any defects. - The taste is balanced with the nose. It’s full of clean agave and there’s some natural sweetness that typically follows cooked agave. The citrus is stronger on the palate than the nose and some nice pepper appears on the finish. There’s a nice alcohol tingle and some building heat. The sweetness and pepper linger but the sweetness fades first. - Overall this is a good quality blanco tequila that you can sip on but it’s bold enough that it should hold up in a cocktail nicely.

Didn’t get much cooked agave, but is Somewhere in there. Besides that this profile has a good balance of what you expect from a reposado; barrel spice, sweetness (caramel/vanilla), clove, while also showcasing some grass and herbal notes (raw agave) and a minimal alcohol intake Price is just a bit off at $55

This expression is good and has an appealing framework: Cooked agave, herbal, vegetal, citrus, low alcohol intake, grass, and kick of cinnamon/spices at the end. Slightly bitter and some minerality can be perceived. Wish it was a bit cheaper, maybe in the $30-35 range, since it has pretty good competitors at its current MSRP of $45

Mil Nueve Cuarenta as the bottle says is made to reminisce about how tequila used to be, single state agave (sic), brick ovens, deep well water, your own yeast, pot still distillation, and now confirmed additive free. Some other info is included on the bottle such as altitude, filtering and that this is produced by 100% Mexican owned distillery, an important distinction in an era of multinational brand and facility ownership. For me this succeeds in the execution of these bottle bullets, providing a very nice sipping experience and I look ahead to the Reposado in the US. How does it taste? Completely clean with decent viscosity and oil and with a ton of natural sweetness and surprisingly mild taste of ethanol for all the peppery sweetness carried by it. Bottled on 18/05/2023 and tastes very fresh It’s a screw top too, though opening the bottle wasn’t as easy as that implies.

Aroma: Not a strong, forceful nose, but a uniquely interesting nose. Lots of contrasting notes. Baking spice and grassiness. Green agave with a touch of eucalyptus. Lemon/orange citrus fragrance. Ripe pineapple rind, vegetal nuances and an undercurrent of finely ground white pepper. Flavor: Cinnamon Graham Cracker entrance. Picks up steam with warming pepper, clean estuary salinity, agave and late blooming floral elements. Medium weight and body. A hint of bitterness. The dominant pepper and natural sweetness finish take their time bidding goodbye.
