Great old-time tequila- peppery, nice agave punch, citrus, earthy, herbal, vegetal. For the price of around $30 to $35... you can't beat it

What a tequila should smell like! A very herbal and vegetal profile, with some earthy and grassy notes. Friendly alcohol attack, then you get orange peel, green fruits flavors covered by a light mint layer that lets you savor it. Was expecting more as Tapatio 110 is my favorite blanco, this was just missing the wow factor I was anticipating. Nevertheless a good blanco to have in your home bar. Will need to revisit and re analyze.

Nose similar to most products at La Alteña. Surprisingly complex for the price with a medium finish and little heat. Excellent value.

Revisiting after a year and bumping some points. Beautiful agave nose. Comes through strongly. Little pepper on the pallet and some heat but overall pleasant

Really nice, classic tequila. Lots of cooked agave, pepper, vegetal on the nose. A hint of alcohol but in a good way. Flavor is full of agave, as you’d expect from Carlos Camarena. Nice vegetal, grassy flavor, anise, minerality and some cinnamon. A little more alcohol but it adds to the flavor without overpowering it. Finish is a little mild but really, really long. This one sticks with you and it’s amazing. Absolute classic, artisanal tequila that is a delight to drink.

Nose- Cooked agave, loads of black pepper, melon, a little pineapple, some citrus fruit, and a touch of grassy vegetal notes. Flavor- The nose carries over but adds minerality, dry earth, and mint. Faint alcohol but not off-putting. Finish- long and pleasant. I'm in love.

Aroma : Cooked agave, pear, minerality, and black pepper. Some citrus. Taste : Cooked agave and black pepper. There is also some unique mineral/earth notes going on here. There is some spiciness from the black pepper and light anise. This is medium bodied and oily in mouthfeel. Finish : Medium/long in length with stronger spiciness and some mineral/earth here as well.

LOTE: TB-050 39/01/2020 40% 1 ltr Initial nasal impact has a nice prickle with sweet and sour notes. Aroma of cooked agave, jasmine, lime, grapefruit, cinnamon, honeysuckle and pepper. Oily mouthfeel with generous heat. Pepper, cinnamon, grapefruit, lime zest dominate the flavor. Fennel / anise hit on the back end. Some grass on the retro nasal. The pepper and anise hold on the long finish of this great blanco. Everything you could ask for in a classic blanco. Added bonus: about $35 - 40 for a 1 ltr bottle and a screw cap for easy travel. Another awesome tequila from Carlos Camarena

Love this blanco. Tasted right from the source (and from the still) at La Altena. You can taste the iron in the water. Interesting use of both tahona and roller mill mosto for this brand. The brix of these agaves are at around 30+. Smell and taste cut pears. Earthy, citrus, this is a traditional highlands blanco. Very unique.

One of my all time favourites, just oozes with agave and it’s practically free!!

Nose: Starts with vibrant nose of baked pineapple, cooked agave, pepper and pear. Some mineral aromas catch your attention. There is a cream soda aroma that soothes. Flavor: Oily with clean flavors. Heavy agave and pleasant heat. Nice pepper and cinnamon blast. Dynamic mouth feel, yet creamy. Medium long finish with a hint of anise.

Aroma: Baked agave, and a hint of earthiness. Quite smooth and very pleasant. It seems to have a slight medicinal (more like old school Listerine)in the finish. Slightly warm and makes to go back for another taste. Value is huge, as you get a one liter (1L) bottle, not 750ml!

Rated blind after aeration. Long slow legs. Nose of faint agave, maybe a little antiseptic. Entry is easy, tastes of slightly sweet agave, melted butter, mellow. The agave flavor might come out a bit more in the fumes/aftertaste. Then pepper grows into the finish, tingly and moist. This is a great quality value tequila, but when I put it up blind against Olmeca Altos, it surprisingly didn't measure up. I'll have to revisit this comparison again.

Review #170 - Tapatio Tequila Blanco

Brand new to the US market, Tapatio has a large following amongst tequila lovers. I'd never had any of the juice sold in Mexico, so I was very much looking forward to trying this one.
