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.

clean, crisp, no alcohol burn. Earthy, peppery? lowlands from the town of tequila. named for a one eye horse that won gold at the Olympics for Mexico.

I never really had a tequila with “smoke” in the nose and flavor but now I see it. Nose has a vegetal root quality, almost like the base of a carrot then followed by the smoke, and finally something sour. A bit weird. The flavor is fairly one dimensional and flat. It finishes with a sharp pepper bite on the tongue. I was expecting more complexity.

Smells and tastes like bubble gum. But not even good bubble gum, more like baseball card gum - or even worse, that bubble gum flavored toothpaste you’d get at the dentist when you were six years old. I find very few agaves totally undrinkable, but this I can’t even. Even in a margarita that gummy flavor takes over. A big, unpleasant surprise. I’d sooner use some bottom shelf mixto if it was the only other option.

Simple review: Aroma: cooked agave and light alcohol Taste: cooked agave and light alcohol Finish: light, faint cooked agave. Short finish Despite the alcohol smell and taste, it went down really smooth and easy. Was expecting the worst at $22 for a 1L bottle. Pleasently surprised.

To me this is the value tequila I would recommend anyone to try owned by the respected Orendain family. This tequila usually beats all the others of its price range. Its aromas are somewhat lacking and I prefer to have a more masculine taste but the finish is really nice with lots of cooked agave that is really long and makes this tequila really enjoyable!

First impression - tastes a bit thin. Flavour of grass and earth. Decent agave. I get more smoke over pepper. Alcohol aroma at pouring and burn finish. Not long lasting. Not terrible..... But not blown away. Ok value at $46 at the Legacy Liquorstore in Vancouver. But can get better for cheaper. Heavy alcohol aftertaste (and possibly mediciney) that I am not used to among premium tequilas. A campfire sipper? In desperation only. Thoughts are that they are not getting enough flavour out of this that they could (high pressure autoclave). Aroma on the empty glass test was actually pretty good. Second impression.... Nothing wrong with it... But thin aroma and flavour. Strange aftertaste. Really picking up that earthy flavour which I do appreciate. Day 2..... Nope. Just not feeling this one Dawg..... After a week the bottle has aired out a bit. Forward agave. But the aftertaste. Thinking aspartame like. Has been relegated to "Margaritaville".
