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.

This nose and palate have a strong sweet maraschino cherry and apple element to them. It’s very silky and easy to drink, but it doesn’t really taste like tequila to me. It’s more like a cherry liquor. I don’t get any of the typical cooked agave notes at all. It’s definitely sippable (if you enjoy the flavor), but it doesn’t do well in mixed drinks due to the sweetness and odd non-agave cherry flavor.

Wow. Just a simple and great bargain tequila that should be used in all house tequila cocktails. Great price, excellent simple flavor that makes it palatable for those who are not tequila fans. Try it In an up margarita with a little salt, or personally I love it in a watermelon based marg with Cointreau.

Nice. Would be ok to sip or mix. Seems very neutral with no crazy flavors or aromas. Good balance. Solid.

Nice agave on the nose. Very green, vegetal and clean on the nose. Agave, cinnamon and alcohol on the palate. A little hot on the finish but overall a good Blanco.
