Balanced from start to finish, lots of agave on the nose and palate. Is up there with other of my favorites .

Nose is agave with lime and citrus, hints of wet grass and mint. Clean flavor profile that touches some citrus followed by cooked agave and very light pepper. Light heat that fades comfortably.

10/08/2018 edit. Olive oil bottle. Nose: Agave smacks you in the face. Mango, citrus, anise, minerals and spicy goodness with a hint of lactic. A floral presence. Flavor: Oily agave flavor with hints of snickerdoodle cookie dough and rounded fruit notes. Perfect dose of pepper for balance.

An earthy agave aroma with hints of floral, citrus and pepper. The green agave flavor gives way to a subtle pepper and butter finish. Very smooth. Pleasant but unremarkable.

slightly aggressive, but not overwhelming. pepper, spices, agave notes and a little butter hit the nose. more aggressive on the pallet than on the nose. grapefruit, oregano and white pepper are strong and continue on a late finish. good but a little rude on the new tongue. I'd sip again.

This is definitely my kind of tequila I compare it to Fortaleza Blanco it hits all of the same notes in both the nose and the tongue.

Lote B-1031. Tasted at Casa Rick y Candy on13/09/2018. Classic ET blanco profile. Agave, minerals, natural sweetness and a hint of mint with a nice fading finish.

Personally this fits my profile. Not a tremendous value but well done, nice spice, loooong finish. Wish I could pick up more sweet agave on the nose.

Rated blind in Riedel Overture Glass: Crystal clear. Thin legs appear quickly. Small slow tears form as the coating sheets away. A lot of small pearls are left hanging on the glass. Aroma: Herbal and vegetal agave presents in the form of bell pepper, apple, celery, dill, mint, grapefruit and lime with white pepper and light notes of baked starches like sweet potato. Fresh with a nice complexity. The herbal notes might be a little sharp. Entry: Thin, wet, fairly smooth. Flavor: It has a mild sweetness to it from the baked agave starches that brings to mind apple, bell pepper, melon and pear. This is accented with grapefruit and lime. However, black pepper quickly takes center stage, providing just a touch of heat as it goes down. Finish: As the flavor transitions to black pepper, its sensations light up the moist palate for a finish of short-to-medium length. Conclusion: The mild flavors and sweetness coupled with a thin body could make you accidentally drink an entire bottle. The pepper sensation is the primary experience here, and while very enjoyable, it isn’t long. Its mild character could also allow this to be mixed in any number of ways.

Excellent nose. Agave was sweeter than expected for the aroma and had nice, thick, creamy mouth feel and flavor. Very nice!

My favorite blanco tequila for many years. All-around excellent juice. Great agave flavor with herb and mineral notes. Has since been surpassed, but still worthy.

Lot 1059, 2/20/2007. Beautiful nose. Some cooked agave, light citrus, pepper, a little stone fruit. No alcohol to speak of. On to flavor. A delightfully cool, mild sweetness upfront- kinda melony- that spikes early, then tapers out to a delightful finish of cooked agave and black pepper. Nice medium mouthfeel, and weight on the tongue. Not overly complex, but wonderfully balanced and nuanced with a fantastic finish. A standout blanco in my book.

Lot of fresh agave, mint and vegetal on the nose. Cooked agave, cinnamon and butter in the mouth. Pepper, citrus and earth in the finish.

Lots of cooked agave on the nose and in the flavor, with an excellent balance of minerality and citrus. A little bit of alcohol burn, but restrained. A blanco you can sip, but terrific when mixed too.

This is a very enjoyable tequila. As a sipper, neat it has strong agave aroma and flavor and a short but very pleasant finish. Smooth and easy to drink but very flavorful.

Wow, this expression sure didn’t disappoint. This is bold. It’s like someone smashed me in the face with an agave fruit cake. Nutty, cherry, citrus-y gingerbread on the nose. Naturally sweet on the palate. Definitely agave forward, as it should be. With the right amount of peppermint, herbs and minerals to round out this gem.

High quality expression from El Tesoro. Nice clean agave aroma, delicious flavor with a full mouth feel. Quite a bit of burn on the finish, though.

Review #313 - El Tesoro Tequila Blanco - White Label (Robert Denton Import)

As with the newer bottles of El Tesoro, you can tell that they take their time making this one. The slow fermentation process keeps the vegetal notes nicely, but also balances them with the agave.
