Lot 16 | Nose: Gobs of caramelized agave accompanied with citrus: lemon, lime and tangerine. Very herbaceous. Rosemary, thyme, dill and mild white pepper. Notes of moist earth and clay. Cinnamon and a hint of vanilla. Flavor: Lively pepper and cinnamon delivered in a velvety sweet agave package. Bright citrus notes punch through - including grapefruit peel that carries a bit of bitterness. Fruitiness, an almost ripe berry flavor. Warm, oily, round feeling on the tongue. Finish: A lazy, full mouth finish.

Lot 13 | Nose: Slightly muted nose. Pine needles (think Christmas tree) and citrus rind. A little mineral “tingle”. A slight hard cider note, with warm cinnamon and vanilla undertones. Loads of brown sugary sweet agave. Green olives. Flavors: Nothing muted in the tasting. Pepper, citrus and spice bite. Brine. It soon transitions into a creamy texture, buttery rich agave, anise and oily green olives. Sits really nice on the tongue. And lingers...

Lot 15 | Nose: Creamy agave immediately in your face. Zesty spice, minerals and citrus notes. Hint of mint and allspice. Flavor: Brown sugar, black pepper zing and toffee. Savory buttery agave playing off robust spices and olive brine. A very nice lote, indeed.

Lot 13 | Side by side with lote 09 this has a bit sharper nose and is a bit more astringent in the mouth. Finish is Mmmmm good. Recent OldTown order.

Lot 11 | Nose: Crisp mineral notes, accompanied by a green pineapple, citrus and agave medley. Nice spicy cinnamon. Trace smokiness. Flavor: Whoa! There is a blast of fiery black and white pepper, and spicy hot cinnamon; this blazing hot blast quickly mellows with creamy sweet agave blanketing the tongue. The tiniest bit of brine adds more depth. This finishes with sweet and heat, but also with some last minute spicy nuances not normally found in blancos.

Lot 09 | New shipment from OldTown. More of what is loved from the Still Strength. Aroma, taste and finish are all topped by only a small handful of other products. The rest are wanna be tequila.

Lot 07 | The current latest release in my possession. Creamy roast agave along with the ABV make this special.

Lot 03 | Fortaleza Still Strength Blanco I love the higher proof tequilas. I get fresh agave and some green apple on the nose. I also detect some pepper and alcohol. I taste green agave and white pepper. There is a tingle on the tongue that the proof provides. The finish is very clean and pleasant. Overall this is an excellent high proof tequila.

Lot 10 | Nose: Round rich aromas greet the nose, even before swirling the glass. Green olives in brine. Bright spicy notes: cinnamon, cloves, a vanilla tease and green peppercorns. Herbal notes and roasted green peppers. Piquant mineral aroma sharpens up the profile. Flavor: Mouth clinging, ripe agave sweetness on entry. Fiery cayenne pepper/finely ground white pepper combo generates some heat going down. Spicy, tingly sensation on the mid tongue with some accompanying numbness setting in. Silky caramel... Olives and familiar Fortaleza umami character from the aromas follows through to the tasting. Finish: This tequila is firing on all cylinders. Kudos.

Lot 10 | Tasted on Lobster Bus 13 at Angel del Mar in Puerto Nuevo, Baja CA, MX. Creamy roast agave with a slight bit of fennel and the trademark Fortaleza parmesan cheese.

Lot 01 | Aroma : Lots of cooked agave, earth, black pepper. Some olive and grassy, vegetal notes. Taste : Very thick and oily, full flavored. Lots of cooked agave here as well. Some more earth and black pepper. Grass, vegetal notes and celery. Dried fruit, butter and citrus. Finish : Long and prolongs more of the oily mouth feel. Cooked agave and earth, trace amounts of black pepper. I also get a small amount of honey here as well. This is exactly what I want to see in a Blanco. Maybe it could improve with some Pasote minerality, but it's hard to say since this is so full of flavor, I'm not sure if I'm missing out.

Lot 01 | As close to perfect as you’re going to find, this is bulging with agave from start to finish! Surprisingly balanced considering the ABV, this kicks you in the ass on the way out but otherwise it’s incredible. This tequila is elite, grab a couple bottles and stash them away!

Lot 03 | Lot 3. Incredibly smooth. Rich agave, earthy with a bit of spice and a lingering finish.

Lot 03 | Striking and complex nose. Green olives stuffed with anchovies, ripe cheese, minerals, vegetal notes, and wet rocks. Juxtaposed with ripe fruit and abundant agave. Flavor: Green peppercorns, black pepper, smokey buttery honey. Meaty. Ripe cheese notes persist. A different umami/sweetness covers your tongue. Edit. 7/30/2018. My initial impression was a little bit reserved. This expression has grown on me considerably. There is so much more complexity and depth of flavor than I originally found. This is an exceptional tequila.

Nice aroma of agave, mint and a slight floral note. Big burst of cinnamon as immediate flavor evolving to fruit and almond. Good complexity in the flavor. Medium length finish. The 46% ABV definitely adds some punch and nuance to this blanco. There is a little fire in the initial flavor but it settles out nicely. This probably becomes one of my first-choice blanco (along with 7L, Suerte, and Uno [1]). 03-24-2018

Excellent agave forward nose. The heat is obviously present, but not overpowering. Cooked agave through the finish. An excellent example of traditional, straight from the still blanco. As enjoyable as it gets.

Lots of cooked Agave on the nose. Reminds me of standing near the tahona at the distillery. Great taste with long finish at the back of the throat.

More of everything you like or love about Fortaleza blanco. Caramelized agave in abundance on the nose and in the mouth with some added punch to the tongue and palate from the higher ABV. A bit of buzz to the mid tongue with lingering natural sweetness fades slowly. Stock up.
