On the nose, I get Agave and spices, like cinnamon or maybe even clove. I get a little vanilla but the agave is the star of the show. Black pepper, some tropical fruit. On the palate, Agave is ever present, I’m not getting as much black pepper as the nose suggests, personally. Definitely getting those nice spices, a little bit of citrus oil. Very full bodied and delightful to drink. El Tesoro through and through, a very honorable aging of the exquisite blanco. For $43 at Total Wine in SoCal, this scores major value points for me.

Oak, cooked agave and cherry or pitted fruit on the nose with hints of orange and vanilla… cooked agave and fruity on the mouth with some black pepper…. Some what complex and full of body

On the nose, loads of cooked agave and some salinity, definitely getting minerals. A honey like sweetness, very appealing. On the palate, honey first, and an aromatic sweetness like agave nectar. Tons of agave, and it’s very oily, completely coats the mouth beautifully. A little bit of spice, but really the agave and honey notes are stealing the show. I get a little bit of aromatic floral notes but it’s faint. Overall, an banger from Carlos Camarena. On my first tasting, I didn’t love it but now that I come back to it, I am finding this to be absolutely fantastic. This is, in my opinion, the platonic ideal of blanco tequila. It’s not necessarily the best I’ve ever had, but it is, in all aspects, very good with no discernible flaws.
