I was surprised by the overwhelming herbal and earthy notes in Arrete’s blanco. Maybe the subliminal message of the horse got to me, but the aroma reminded me of a farm and the taste reminiscent of an herbal tea. I can’t say it’s bad, but not my cup of tea (pun intended).

Good value proposition, I recently realized I hadn’t rated this while sipping it so as good time as any. It probably is the expression I like the least in the lineup but it is still very good both as a mixer and for sipping.

On the nose, agave, and lots of floral/fruity notes. It’s got a salty aroma, and I’m getting something that is almost like banana. Very interesting. On the palate, Sweet, floral and fruity right off the bat. Definitely cooked agave, but it’s mixed in the floral and fruity medley. Very soft, tasty. Not a ton going on, but very easy drinking. A little anise on the finish. Very little heat. I am kicking myself in the ass for not forking out the extra $4 to get the 1L. This is rock solid, and amazingly priced at $22, which I paid in a random liquor store in San Diego. This is the cheapest sipper I’ve ever had, and I think it’s gonna be a damn good mixer if I go that route. Superb, definitely grab a bottle if you’re interested in a neat budget bottle that drinks way above its price.

Aroma : Cooked agave, light fruit, pepper and earth. Somewhat floral. Taste : Agave, pepper and citrus. Also some light cinnamon, and slightly hot. This is fairly light in oils. Finish : Medium length with higher emphasis on peppery spice, there is some cinnamon here too.

Takes a minute to build up but nice agave and green pepper corn notes, finish lingers on without end. Gotta say this is a complete bargain for the price.

Nose: Light colored fruit and agave start. Followed with pepper, an herbal and a floral note, and earthiness. Flavor: Vanilla, cinnamon and a hot pepper blast. On the “rustic/macho” side. Finishes with pepper and hints of grapefruit rind. A Jackfruit tang finish.

The first time I tasted Arette was at the Tijuana Tequila Expo in 2005. After tasting somewhere around 50 blancos (although my mouth felt like it was a thousand, as it was in my early days of tequila tasting), Arette was one of only 2 brands that I was blown away by, on that day. Ever since, I have had a fondness for Arette! And while I may not find their blanco to be overly complex these days, it has has some nice machismo-ness to it, a good finish, and a singular taste that helps it stand apart in the vast sea of tequila brands.

Vegetal flavor profile with lingering vanilla. Not something I would keep on the bar. Not a bad tequila, just way too many better options in this price range.

Ok so this fails in comparison to Cimarron both are the same price but the Cimarron has more flavor and the finish is smoother I can sip Cimarron but not Arette I will say this Arette is a fantastic mixer get your ranch water and margaritas ready because this is great!

Agave and Pine were the flavor notes I pulled. For a bottle in this price range, definitely a great pick.

$30 for 700ml at Binny’s in Chicago. Nice full agave aroma. Initial bite and strong flavor with a decent peppery finish. Ok as a mixer but didn’t lobe it to sip on.
