The bottle has changed from what's shown. I noted a smell and the taste that was different than anything that I have observed before. This was tasted at a restaurant in Guadalajara. So not sure how long it's been sitting. I noted something that tasted more to me like an industrial cleaning products somewhere in the flavor profile but still sweet. It overpowered everything else that I could sense. Might need a re taste

Agave cocido, floral, olive.

Has a certain almost shrillness to the flavor. Almost a minty-ness- is this bad boy diffused? Not my favorite - kind reminds me of Olitas - but still decent. It may be a little high on the additives.

Full on agave, roasted and caramelized along with some green pepper notes. Serious lip buzz from the alcohol on the finish. Wish I had more of this older bottling.

Complex nose. Fresh cut grass, dill, nutmeg and baked agave. Flowery and vegetal. Taste starts with with spicy sweetness and vanilla/agave follows. Nice mouth feel. Some nutty notes too.

Old bottle, dated June 2007. Light nose, slightly savory and sweet. A tinge of sweetness on the entry, quickly turns up a nice heat. Green olive and bell pepper finish, with lingering black pepper. Recommended if you come across one of these older expressions.

Nice crystal clarity & legs in the glass. Nose starts with a fresh agave fruitiness backed up by some green olive & seagrass. Not overly sweet or fruity on entry...vegetal flavors dominate with a sharp hit of black pepper. Finish slow fades but turns a tad bitter. Overall a decent blanco at a bargain price of $20.00.

This is the old style version of Centinela blanco (round bottle, white label) and it is a stellar tequila choice. If you spot one of these bottles, grab it.

Centinela blanco (old round 1L bootle from MX) has a nose that is a little sharp but with notes of lemon, cut grass, and a touch of brown sugar. I found notes of lemon, cream, the juice inside a chocolate covered cherry, and even a touch of chocolate in the finish.

Review #324 - Centinela Tequila Blanco

This is an authentically & well made blanco. It has all of the elements that you look for, but it adds a bit extra in the cinnamon/spice hint to make it stand out.
