NOM 1502 | Nose: A timid nose. That being said, there are aromas to pick up - just not robust ones. Some cantaloupe/pear notes that have a tinge of sulfur. Sweet vanilla cream with a dash of cinnamon. And trace minerality. Flavor: An initial blast of cinnamon red hots and finely ground black pepper. Followed up with a vanilla variant that is cloaked in bitterness that sits on the back of the tongue. A little redeeming nuttiness in the finish.

Blind rated. Agave, pepper and alcohol on the nose. A bit too much of the last to put this among my favorites, although it's not bad. On the palate a good presence of agave, for me though there's a certain lack of complexity. Some alcohol spice, which it might be fun, but at the same time it disturbs its balance a little. Finish it's medium to long, with a nice agave presence. Hard to really judge this one at the end of an astonishing blind kit as this is, which has been the best to date for me. I would probably love this juice by itself, but in the context of the kit I find it a little inferior compared to others.

From a blind tasting. Some baked agave on the nose. In the mouth agave and some white pepper along with some slight bitterness though not nearly as much as sample 2, which turns out to be Sauza Tres Generacion. Moderate length finish that resolves to some sweet agave that clings to the tongue for a time.

Rated blind. Aroma is sharp and pungent with vegetal and mineral qualities. Quick sweetness on the palate giving way quickly to overpowering mineral flavors and big pepper feeling. Both dissipate quickly, leaving tingling gums and a slight mineral taste. So the finish is more of a numbing feeling than a pepper experience. To be honest, I find myself wincing as I drink this. There is a world of better options out there at this price and below. This rating may seem very low for Partida, but I didn't bother to give it any points for buying again or recommending.

slightly astringent, but pepper, earth, herbs and agave wiggle their way through the burn to reveal an impressive nose. cinnamon sweet, citrus friend and her buttery friend pay you a quick visit before vanishing for a quick finish. cinnamon, all spice, citrus. nice finish, great aroma

NOM 1454 | NOM 1454. NOM 1454. An earthy aroma of baked agave, alcohol and spice. The taste is sweet agave with vanilla, mint and black pepper. Modest mint and pepper finish.

NOM 1454 | The Partida blanco has a nice, true blanco nose, with notes of cooked agave, butter,earth, spearmint, jasmine and white pepper. Not overbearing on the palate, the taste reveals a more "raw" agave tone, anise, and some fruity notes of tangerine and cooked apples, the let down with this tequila for me is in the finish as some heavy bitter notes appear revealing the use of autoclaves and stainless steel stills, and it does not have a unique and definitive aroma and taste. But I don't think that for most people, my last two statements will be an issue. Over all, this is a good traditional blanco tequila, and a fine representation del Valle de Tequila.

NOM 1502 | Bottle: NOM 1502 Appearance: Clear Nose: Cooked agave, pepper, earth, salinity Palate: Agave, agave, agave, grapefruit, black pepper, earth, mint Finish: Agave, earth, black pepper, alcohol Overall: This is a fantastic additive free blanco for margaritas, as the agave notes really shine through. As a sipper, this is pretty good but not complex enough for me to choose it first consistently over other options. The flavor profile is very straightforward and focused on agave.

Partida's blanco is sits below my threshold as a sipper and suffers from being priced in that same class. It's a decent certified addative free tequila, but come up short as my go-to bottle for sipping or mixing. Nose: Very light and underwhelming, but not offensive. Agave is there but is overtaken by a blast of black pepper and alcohol. Traces of cinnamon and an earthy minerality. Perhaps a faint trace of smoke and vanilla. Taste: A slightly thin creaminess, black pepper warmth, and a slight sweet and bitterness of cinnamon. Nothing particularly noteworthy. Finish: The lingering pepper and bitter bite provides a medium, albeit not very pleasant finish.

NOM 1502 | Tasted from a half bottle from liquor distributor, cooked and fresh agave smell and flavor, little minerality, proper sweetness aftertaste of green agave and alcohol

NOM 1502 | No discernible notes on the aroma, but an alcohol/chemical smell is present. Mouth feel leans more watery than oily. Unique flavor that is sippable but doesn’t really stand out as being sweet or spicy. Flavor doesn’t stand out. Finish has a bit of spice that’s not harsh, but it’s not far from being harsh. Aftertaste leaves a mild burn. It’s easy sipper when taking it back instead of dissecting the flavor. Overall it’s middle of the road.

NOM 1502 | This is a really nice Blanco… not Lalo quality but good for the money. A little flavor forward for food pairing, but pretty good. Nice agave, pepper, cinnamon maybe a little spice in there.. anise maybe. A little vanilla in the finish to coat the teeth.

Peppery with earthy, dirt and a bit of cinnamon. A touch more burn than necessary. A short but enjoyable finish.

Aromas: Earth, thyme and minerals off the bat, with a soapy hint as the aroma lingers. Taste: A bit of smokiness with lite cooke agave, vanilla and the minerals stay with it throughout. This is good as a hot summer sipper or to mix in tequila forward drinks. Great complexity but would not be appreciated by most.

NOM 1502 | Typical of a lot of tequilas in this price range okay for mixing but lacking depth and complexity of flavor and aroma for sipping.

Very versatile blanco. Amazing for sipping with a rich, smooth agave flavor and superb for mixing. Makes an excellent margarita! Well balanced with excellent mineralality and a touch of sweetness. Partida Blanco is hands down one of my favorite tequilas.

Blanco Tequila: The Great Divide

While the panel’s favorites were complex, elemental and intriguing, we were troubled by a lack of intensity in many of the bottles as well as by a sense of artificiality in some. As Florence put it, we found a great divide between those tequilas we liked

Review #255 - Partida Tequila Blanco

I've always learned not to judge a tequila brand just from one expression. I haven't fallen in love with the Partida Anejo the times that I've had it because it lacks character that makes it unique.
