Amazing aroma. Smokey and waxy. Very mineral driven palate. Lack of complexity though and finish lacks

To me this tastes clean and pure. It's very mellow and the taste of agave is nicely integrated with the alcohol.

One of my favorites. Soft, smooth, slightly Smokey - extremely palatable but still interesting.

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.

Purchased 10+ years ago in MX; old school bottle with plastic pour cap, very authentic! High alcohol coupled with earthy agave on the nose; immediate burn across the tongue, peppery agave across the palette; more pepper on the backend with slight caramel and lemon possibly? Wow! This was a terrific deal in MX ten years ago! Now, of course, I own the entire portfolio.

To me a very different Blanco. Lots of spice, pepper, and Vanilla...the Agave seems to get lost in the hot mess...but def worth a try for the experience...

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.

8/13/15 On the nose a definite earthy funk, barn yard aromas intermingling with robust agave notes. Can definitely sense the cooked sugars and the hand of the distiller in this blanco. Ripe tropical fruit also make an appearance in the back ground. Papaya, guava and mango The palate is soft, almost muted when paired with salty food. I think it's best expression is with spice. There is a sugary and oily quality that thinly coats your lips. A weightier blanco to be sure. Here in the palate is where you notice the agave with a big earthy punch. Cinnamon and spice is very minimal compared to the other flavors. The finish lingers but is very subtle. The oily, tactile elements remain as a nice feeling begging for some acidic food to join. Overall a nice departure from those blancos that are pushing for the bright and vegetal. This is a thoughtful blanco that almost belongs with aged tequilas. A true delight!!!
