This is an old bottle I found in my collection recently. Bottle #1304. It’s perfectly intact and time has had any affecting it. Nose is old school Blanco. Only agave. Mid palate is balanced. A bit of natural sweetness. The finish is very pleasant. Roasted agave fills my mouth. A small bit of welcoming heat. I wish it would linger a bit longer.

Nose: nice cooked agave, wet rocks, ripe banana, hint of vanilla. Flavor: sugar cane, black pepper, banana and vanilla. Finish: long and the cooked agave shows up and ends with some light spice

Nose: Pure, crisp agave nose. Freshly harvested agave and cooked agave. No overly sweet or overbearing vanilla notes sometimes found at #1480. Wet rocks, potting soil and trace wet wood aromas. There is some background spice and light pepper trying to emerge. Flavor: Be prepared for a spirited black pepper and salt start. The subsequent sips bring creamy agave and a kitchen cabinet full of spiciness. Sits nicely on the palate, but with plenty of boldness. Finish: Lengthy and punchy finish. This tequila has character.

$9 neat at Picante. Peppery and alcohol to start, lots of cooked and uncooked agave, banana, grapes and citrus. Aroma; light on the nose with little uncooked agave, banana, cinnamon, peppermint, and butter. Finish short with alcohol and pepper notes, banana and butter tones .

Tons of agave from start to finish, the initial smell takes me straight to a distillery floor. Really great stuff, I highly recommend!

Relatively subtle aroma showing cooked agave and vegetal aroma primarily with undertones of flowers, brine and a bit of black pepper. The flavor begins simply with a bit of the vegetal taste and the builds to a full, spice flavor - cinnamon, peppermint. The finish is long and smooth. A great blanco sipper...one of my favorites.

Rated blind after aeration. Medium legs. Bright and clear. Nose of baked agave, banana, fresh mint, and butter. Can feel the alcohol in the sinuses when inhaled deeply. Slightly oily. Flavors match aromas, slightly sweet. The spice is felt across the top and side of tongue as well as upper front-of-mouth. Small burn down the throat, but not in an unpleasant way—more of a continuation of what's happening in the mouth rather than a separate experience. The spice lasts almost a minute, the other flavors slightly longer, ends dry. Purchased at Old Town Liquor $43 (.60)

Nice alcohol on the nose first, cooked agave, black pepper, and vegetal notes. Nice cinnamon on the palate, sweet and soft mouth feel. Very viscous on the palate. Nice blanco!

This has a creamy vanilla character all the way through. it's similar to other NOM 1480 expressions I've had.

Revisiting this Blanco. First impression is aroma is very faint. Based on the aroma you would think the taste would be bland but that’s not actually the case. This is a decent Blanco with watery mouth feel and good agave on the nose. Wanted to like this one more but not quite there for me. I’ll revisit again to see if anything changes.

Notes of roast agave, black pepper, and spearmint on the nose. Also has some underlying tropical tones of banana and coconut, along with earth, butter, and citrus. Flavor is very similar to the aroma, with the earth coming in stronger. Nice brinyness and heat from white pepper. This is an excellent blanco.

First aroma out of the bottle had a strong alcohol smell. That quickly dissipated to a nice agave aroma. Taste was slightly sweet. On sale for $34 at Bourbon Street.

Huge cooked agave flavor on the nose. Pepper, spice, mint, agave, salt, brine, and peppermint taste. Decent mouthfeel, with a slight burn for the finish that actually doesn’t feel like a bad thing. Bought for $44.99 on Cape Cod, so not cheap but a really solid blanco.

smell: sweet agave with slight alcohol at the very end taste: agave, but more subtle sweetness then the nose . finish: fairly smooth but with enough burn to know you are drinking tequila. $50 bottle of tequila, so not cheap

Review #178 - Tequila 123 Organic (Uno) Tequila Blanco

Tequila 123 Organic Blanco or Uno. A relatively new line of tequila that had me intrigued. I'm tasting them all in order tonight so let's see how it goes...
