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.

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.

Nothing too special about the aroma - just sweet agave, alcohol, and mild earthy notes. Heavy agave presence on the palate with a nice amount of black pepper for balance. The finish lasts a while, but it’s on the hotter side. I don’t find this tequila very complex, but the finish/aftertaste is nice. The agave also cuts through nicely in margaritas and palomas. In my opinion, this and Olmeca Altos are the best blancos you can get for around $20. I prefer the latter a bit more for mixing, but both are excellent budget choices.

Nose is very creamy, briny, almost cheesy to me. It's earthy, agave forward. Good budget sipper but not a favourite
