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.

Loved the 1L bottles, and what’s inside is equally excellent. Starts off with a whiff of something like rubber cement and/or plastic. That sounds bad, I know, but it’s minor enough to just sort of be unique and endearing, as it coexists with a very good, thick nose of agave, a little fruity, not especially peppery, and just a hint of wet pavement. Palate is very good, green agave, lightly sweet, medium+ body, and with very excellent smooth and lasting finish. This is really great stuff and the value is superlative - the epitome of the perfect house tequila.

OMFG! New fave. The aroma is wonderful. The flavour sensational. FANTASTIC tequila and a true Blanco. I detected earth, agave, citrus..... Strong agave. Excellent oily finish. Very peppery. The bottle is simple and old school. And that is not a bad thing. Doing 1 on 1 comparisons. 1.5 ounce warm in a tumbler Tapatio Blanco vs Herencia de Plata Blanco. Winner (by a fairly close margin might I add) - Tapatio Blanco!!!!! Herencia has a bit of a mediciney alcholol aroma but wonderful floral and citrus flavour. Smokey and fruity. The Tapatio just plain kicks ass. Solid cooked agave. Peppery. Great oily finish. The Tapatio..... Just plain SOLID tequila.

I get aromas of cooked agave, citrus, and black pepper, along with a spicy, earthiness. After opening up, there are vegetal notes and raw agave. The flavor has a nice spiciness and follows the aroma. Very earthy, and strong white pepper. Finish was medium length and spicy. If you don't mind spicy tequilas, this is the way to go!

A wonderful aroma of pineapple and agave. Agave, black pepper and alcohol flavor. The alcohol flavor does not overwhelm, it is balanced with the other flavors perfectly. An excellent finish. Such a bargain for the quality of this juice. In all aspects, this is what a tequila should be. Outstanding!

Crisp, floral, beautiful. An amazing blanco, and it comes in a litre bottle for the price of a 750. Buy two when you see it.

Fresh agave, citrus, lemon and flowers on the nose. Vanilla, cooked agave and pepper in the mouth. Earthy butter, roasted nuts and fruity in the finish. Same as the Reposado, if you can find it, buy it.

I don’t usually go for lowland peppery Blancos, but I can happily drink this tequila all night. You very much know you’re about to drink a tequila the second it hits the nose and there is no denying the Agave taste and peppery finish. It is surprisingly clean though so can happily sip this straight. It does make a mean margarita though!

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.

As complex as a blanco can be, the appealing mouth feel to this tequila is unique and bright. Spiced notes contrast its sweet note, making it an interesting sip. -EA

Tequilas worth a shot (or sip)

When it comes to tequila, the basic choice is simple: 100% agave, or not 100% agave. Of course, this is like saying that when it comes to music, there’s Mozart or there’s a guy named Steve-O playing the kazoo version of Eine kleine Nachtmusik alone in a b

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.
