Solid affordable sipper with light mint aroma, sweet agave flavor, spices and a little jalapeño pepper in the finish.

On the nose, Immediately grassy, herbal notes and cooked agave. Something like underripe banana. Pepper and citrus, orange peel. On the palate, beautiful cooked agave, almost a touch of vanilla but not quite. Definitely getting the pepper and the citrus. A very subdued natural sweetness, and very oily and full bodied. Solid sipping blanco. Didn’t blow my mind by any means, but also nothing really going against it either.

Lots of agave on the nose and upon entry. Some mint with a touch of grassy sweetness. Possibly the best blanco for under 25 bucks.

Agave, grass, pepper, melon, herbs… there’s a lot going on for this quality affordable tequila. Some good pop from the pepper, long finish. The more I drink, the more I like.

amazing bargain for this entry level Cascahuin. (8 points on the score for the value rating). aroma is agave, citrus and pepper. flavor opens with the agave at the front then presents banana, citrus (mostly grapefruit) and cinnamon. some brine and lactic on the finish. quite near the benchmark for blanco's at $30 and under

Clean fresh agave and citrus (lime). Lovely nose. A lot of agave up front, slightly vegetal and a touch of sweet. The finish is nice, slightly thin but peppery.

Aroma : Agave with some baking spices and floral notes. Light fruits. Taste : Sweet cooked agave and vanilla with grass, mint, light spices and pepper. Nice oily texture. Finish : Medium length with light alcohol, and prolongs the floral notes prominent on the nose and initial taste. Budget priced tequila, but sips like a high end bottle. I'm curious how the minty quality here translates to the Reposado and Añejo, but neither of those were on Old Town Tequila where I got this. I'll have to look around.

Excellent, excellent tequila. Very affordable whether you’re getting it in the States($30) or in Mexico($260 pesos in January 2020, in Jalisco). Enjoyable, short finish. Super flavorful and vegetal, extremely agave forward stuff. Good enough to sip neat. Blows PLENTY of other bigger names out the water at a fraction of the cost. Just a good tequila made the right way, I trust anything from this NOM.

As good as it gets, really. Asparagus, cooked agave, sweet potato (cooked), unripe banana, vegetables and alcohol (bottom of the aroma column) all in the nose. This elixir coats the mouth with a nice viscosity and the tears don’t break. I love this stuff.

Absolutely no flaws that stick out....this is amazing from start to finish. Makes me wonder why every brand can’t perform at this level for this price point?!? Recommend stocking up.

Nose starts out with minerals, baked agave, tropical fruits and lively spices. Floral with some nutmeg... liking the nose. Flavors rolling in of mint, sweet agave, vanilla and light pepper. Nice mouth feel. Balanced solid finish. Leaves a soft feeling finish in my mouth.

Tasted from a taller bottle that I just brought back from Jalisco. At 38% ABV this hand crafted Blanco has a great agave presence both on the nose and in the mouth. Caramelized sugar sweetness presents on the initial sip that gives no taste of being anything other than natural. A moderate and slightly spicy finish rounds out an excellent offering from El Arenal.

Nose: The nose is the highlight of this pour. The agave, white pepper, and citrus jumps out of the glass from the second it is poured. Undertones of celery, herbs, rose, and rounded out with soft butter. Palate: Light to medium silky mouth feel and texture. Earthy agave with minerals and salt. Mild soft sweetness. A lot more fruit on the palate than the nose. Plum, cider, grape skins, and red fruit. Finish is agave wrapped in earth, salt and subtle grape. Clear buy!
