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.

Great value, from one of the best tequila houses out there. This being their entry level blanco. Great for cocktails or by itself. Shows great agave flavors, very balanced

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.

Herbal, minerals, agave, spices, nutmeg and tropical fruits like papaya and peach, almond, peanuts, raisins, citrus orange, portería sapota (mamey) are in the aroma. The palate has banana, Mamey, sweet cooked agave, white pepper, spices, mint. Finish medium with lots of sweet agave and slight spicy.

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.

rich flavor, bitter on the finish. I get notes of cinnamon bark and minerals for the flavor. pure agave on the nose. thin mouthfeel.

It has appealing aromas to me from the beginning. It has that beer fermentation aroma that I liked. A charming sourness essence. And cooked agave! The flavours are perfect; it has a delicate touch with a good combination of cooked agave, bitterness, and sweetness. It is an incredible tequila and, for the price, can be my everyday sipper.

I wasn’t impressed by it at all! Aroma too subtle and flavors just ok! I’ve had better!

This makes the perfect margarita (of all the higher end blancos imho). I stopped buying it when it jumped from $23 to $38 but I’m back. It has some notes that show up in a Rita that gives it depth compared with the usual suspects (lalo, g4, 7 leguas, Fortaleza etc.)

Delicious. This and Tapatio are great for the price. Neck and neck.

Sweet taste, very oak and lavender filled on the tongue, super smooth on the tongue but bit of a heavy aftertaste that sits in your throat for a while.

Okay...run out and get this. $37 @ Ferment and Still. You'll thank me. What holds this back is the nose. The taste, aroma, and affordability are on are on par with the likes of Tapatio, Fortaleza, and G4. Aroma: A floral and fruit forward aroma in this exciting blanco. Subtle nose of agave, roses, mint, banana, white pepper, grass, with a nice clean minerality. At first this struck me as very plain. Oh boy does it open up. Taste: Wonderfully crisp, clean, and semi-sweet. A buttery mouthfeel with a faint touch of white pepper and alcohol. Cooked agave is the star of the show. Add in a light white peppery bite that brightens up with notes of faint spearmint grapefruit rind, roses, and some black tea or Jalapeño vegetalness. Wow. A lot going on here, folks. Finish: Satisfying with a pinch of grapefruit and Jalapeño bitterness and moves into a mild white peppey warmth. Yes. Yes. Yes. To quote Erica Broom, 'Budget priced tequila, bit sips like a high end bottle.' Reminds me of El Tequilino.
