Lot 150 | Muted agave nose and subtle palate with some bitterness on the finish. Glad I didn’t buy a bottle

Nose: agave cooked / earth / pepper / mineral/ apple / citrus / lemongrass/ lavender/ lactic Taste: cooked agave bomb / pepper / cinnamon/ melon / orange peel / citrus / lemongrass / mint / brine-salt Finish: so much agave and pepper creating a cinnamon flavor sensation that lingers even though the mouthfeel is wet and totally non-viscous. Clean rainwater taste stays with you This blanco (lote 150) gives you everything on the palate. The nose was good, but underwhelming considering the strength of the taste. The finish has a few notes that stay, but otherwise there’s a quick clean finish that is enjoyable.

Lot 157 | Very nice legs. The nose is sweet with agave and less briney than some lotes I have tasted. Smell of mint, vegetal, orange peel. The taste is agave sweet with earthy notes and honey. This is a nice lote with less olive and brine than others I have had. I like this lote a lot and would buy it again if I see it.

Lot 166 | Nose: Pre swirl yields some mineral presence; green and vegetal notes gently emerge. Post swirl offers fresh raw corn, earthiness, faint cinnamon and a suggestion of sulfur. Hint of lemon lime soda. Flavor: Pepper zing, cinnamon heat and sweetness. Medium texture with balanced salinity. Pepper heat has staying power, and picks up some bitters as it subsides. Finish builds richness into to the profile.

Lot 161 | Nose: Cinnamon, cloves, citrus. Horno fresh sweet agave. Dry earth/soil. A touch of acidity. A passing whiff of Juicy Fruit gum. Flavor: Rich sweet notes. Nutty: salted filberts. Rounded blend of baking spices with a kick of pepper warmth. Rolls nicely over the tongue and palate. The finish brings no surprises, but provides an extended enjoyment of what has preceded.

Lot 150 | When I nose this one you can tell it isn’t your everyday Fortaleza blanco. I am guessing it is the bags of fibers floating in the mosto but it has a nice sweet agave nose and while earthy, not as pronounced as say Lote 157. I am pulling in cinnamon and citrus along with a little black pepper. On the tongue this is a sweet agave bomb with some black pepper. I am getting a touch of brine and very much undertones of earth and citrus. This has a great mouthfeel and linger great on the palate and back of the throat. This is a unicorn to find nowadays but it is one when I can grab it, I do.

Lot 162 | Nose: A fresh impression of minerals and cooked agave aromas, laced with medium sweet citrus and spice. Floral notes and mint. Taste: Honeyed sweetness and nuanced baking spice carrying some heat and punch. Light colored orchard fruit, full mouth salinity and oils. A touch of bitters mid palate. Spices dawdle in the finish. The mint cranks up volume in the last moments - becoming borderline too dominant for my tastes.

Lot 151 | Nose: Greets with an agave sweetness reminding me of brown sugar on buttered toast. Minerals, green herbs and mint. Next offering up warm spice notes and a whiff of freshly clipped grass. Flavors: A tummy warming cinnamon pepper Firestick entrance. Medium oils, salinity and faint flesh of mandarin. The brown sugar agave impression persists. Can’t find some of my “go to” signature markers for a Fortaleza blanco - nonetheless a delightful sip.

Maybe the most drinkable tequila for people ive ever had. Will recommend to people as a "gateway drug" :) Aroma: very very clean fresh aroma. Earthy and vegetative: mushroom & mint. Licorice and pineapple. The smells are all over the place but blend into a smooth smell that is somewhat indistinct. Almost smells like the ocean which is really refreshing. Taste: unbelievably "smooth" for a tequila. Almost tastes low proof. Slightly sweeter than the nose and cantaloupe is the unique flavor i get here Mouthfeel: runny. Less body Finish: short finish. Maybe 10-20 seconds. Unbelievably short honestly. Baking spice and then leaves a hint of sweetness as if you had a drop of vanilla extract

Lot 154 | Nose: All the usual goodies. Green olives and white pepper. Dusty minerality. A hint of smoke. And of course agave dripping with sweetness. Flavor: Thick in the mouth, briney. Honeyed sweetness with a soft vanilla roundness lingering on the tongue. A bit of coconut? A kick of pepper. Finishes with agave, pepper heat and spice playing off each other with poise. This one is growing on me.

Lot 150 | Creamy earthy agave pepper with a sight bitter back end. Good stuff but not a standout lot like I hoped.

Lot 150 | 2nd Night: Much sweeter and herbaceous than I anticipated. The aroma was soft and verdant with green olive, agave, vinegar, light ethyl, fresh cut plant stems, and pistachio. The taste of stone was more subdued and I gathered sweet plum, green grapes, citrus, some floral, earthiness, grassy bitterness, anise,and sugar cane. Finish is spicy, herbaceous and semi-tart before slackening into an earthen watery essence. My wife doesn’t prefer Forta Blanco typically but did enjoy this Lote noting the sweetness right away upon sipping and remarking that it was easier for her to enjoy this rendition moreso than other she’s had.

Lot 153 | Nose: Rich agave with hints of caramel. Minerals. Round spices, anise and green peppercorns in brine. Flavors: An extension of the aromas, with a velvety texture. Pepper heat ramps up slightly. Silky sweetness with the tiniest bit of almond/maple on the back palate fade. Finish: Given a little time, a wonderful finish evolves.

Lot 106 | 2nd weekend: Bottled 3yrs ago, I found this lot in a dusty store in East Oakland (Fruitvale Area). The aroma is a mild agave, cherry,pear, brininess that’s very soft to inhale, The ethyl is subdued but still makes a faint sting in the nostrils. Overall very sweet smelling. This lot is the sweetest tasting Iv’e had so far; buttery stone, soft agave, pear, plum tanginess, salt, orange and green citrus, with the dry down conjuring thoughts of faint smoke, salt and white wine.

Lot 150 | Another line-drive up the middle by Fortaleza. Sweet agave w/ somewhat spicy cinnamon, followed by herbal nuances and lemon zestiness... I felt I had to let it breathe for a while. Glad I did! It evolved into a more complex blanco but falls a little short. Slight citrus popped up w/ cinnamon subduing its bit, and now showing its sweet side. I honestly preferred the lot 100 and 105, but this is a proper and worthy blanco!

Lot 150 | Nose: After a few minutes of gentle coaxing, the irresistible combo of cooking agaves, fermenting mosto and distillation aromas fills the senses. Remarkably sweet agave laced with subtle cinnamon, citrus and pepper. A faint undercurrent of hay, farm and wet earth. A touch of sweet, musty jackfruit. A subdued aroma profile…then… Flavor: Wham-bam! A creamy, silky sweetness explodes on the palate upon first sip - followed up with a backend kick in the butt of pepper and cinnamon. A kiss of olive brininess. The fruity sweetness takes on a thick, chewy texture, showing both sweet and savory personalities. Take your time letting this one hit its stride. And if you are lucky enough to find one - share it. *This one improves over subsequent tastings.

Lot 150 | This profile is packed with flavor! The cooked agave just explodes in your mouth along with notes of jamoncillo (creamy), minerality, earthy, subtle spiciness/citrus compared to other lots, caramelized fruits, silky, natural sweetness, some olive/briny at the end, with medium complexity body. People will love this!

Lot 142 | Nose: Sharp and crisp. Citrus, thyme and wet gravel. Spice. Flavors: Salinity and intense agave sweetness. A pepper backbone accompanied by cinnamon heat. Caramel/toffee notes on the back palate. Nice body and texture with a spicy medium length finish.

Lot 141 | Nose: Lime oils, minerals and mountain pine. Slightly sharp on the nose upon entry. Then rich fruit aromas emerge. A blend of banana, pineapple, lemon and orange. Lightly spicy. Flavor: Creamy, peppery agave. Less sharp than the aromas suggested. Nice spice balance. The profile is more sweet than savory. But a few herbal notes make a late appearance.
