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

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.

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.

One of my favorite blanco tequilas ever. Just gets everything right including the liter size bottle.

My go to blanco. Can't beat the value as far as domestically available blancos go. Lots of pepper, citrus and licorice with a light yet spicy mouthfeel. Leaning towards the less oily body but the pepper flavor will linger for minutes. Have yet to introduce it to a friend who didn't love it.

Spicy blanco! Agave aroma competes with strong notes of pepper and anise and a hint of citrus. Tastes like it smells...starts with strong pepper/anise/herbal flavors giving way to full agave flavor that lingers throughout the spicy citrus finish.

Great blanco! Very vegetal in the aroma and you definitely taste the agave in the flavor. Also, maybe a small hint of anise. This is an amazing price point for such a good blanco. What makes it even better is it comes in a 1L bottle vs the traditional 750ml. Definitely worth picking up a bottle... Or two!

Bright nose of agave, fruit and herbs. Spicier in the mouth- black pepper, anise and agave finishing bittersweet. A great value.

Incredible aroma of agave and fruit. The aroma carries through directly to flavor - fruit and agave. Slightly sweet but nicely offset by black pepper flavor. Long, lingering flavor of fruit and agave. Subtle, warm finish with a hint of anise. A value - great flavor at a very reasonable price.

I don't think you can get a better tequila for the money than Tapatio blanco. With a nose full of black licorice, anise, and pepper, you will be eager to dive right in. The flavor is a minty fresh burst of agave - perfect for a true blanco lover. It is vibrant and fresh and easy to drink.

A bright and mellow nose with lots of agave and citrus/grassy notes. Flavour has minerals and baking spices, with a mild finish that lingers. Very different from the 110 in my opinion, but I enjoy both.

There is something truly classic about Tapatio Blanco. Pepper. Citrus. Licorice. I really enjoy this one when I’m in the mood for it.

Have had a love affair with Tapatio for years. Perhaps not the most complex tequila but consistently great agave/citrus/mineral/lite brine flavor that puts a smile on my face every pour! And what a bargain...

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.
