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.

The bottle I tasted is from the ‘90s. Somehow, it has the lovely mustiness of a wine cellar!

Had to rate again! Tasted a bottle from the '90s! Totally different profile from the current expression. I wish they had lot #'s. I rated the current expression an 83.

On the nose I get cooked agave,peppery,baked spices. The taste is very mild has a natural sweet flavor on the mouth. For 25.99 for 1 liter you can’t beat that . I was actually surprised by how good it tasted for that price. You can enjoy sipping on this or a good mixer.

Very on the nose hints of cooked agave and a honey sweetness. Contrasting differences in taste, giving a fuller more robbust taste of earthy, bitter walnut, sweet agave and very apparent fresh water notes. Finishes super smooth for a blanco, with a sweet and smoky touch.

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.
