Herbal, minty, floral.....there is a lot going on here but it all works well together. I feel like this really opens up after a meal, I don’t classify many tequilas as “food necessary” but I highly recommend with this.

I don't care for this. Disappointed Maybe it will come around. I hope Grover is right, I'm letting it set.

Lots of white pepper in the mouth and some floral and fruity notes on the nose.

I concur with previous reviews. The initial pour has a strong nose and mouth of alcohol as Chris states, and greatly improves after opening up, as Grover says. After allowing ample time to open up, it has a nose of agave with a hint of fruit. The mouthfeel is wet and slightly viscous; smooth. Flavor of mild agave and light pepper; mild, but not without some character. It really shines in the finish though. A large wet pepper/spice feel the lingers. I paid $47 for this and feel like there are better options at this price point (and lower), but on a bar full of mass-market brands, I would certainly order a pour of this.

For maximum enjoyment, pour this into a glass and let it sit there in the glass for 30 minutes. It needs time to open up.

Aroma is a bit overpowering (strong alcohol). Good agave flavor with hints of mint and juniper??? Good, long finish.

Review #171 - Crotalo Tequila Plata Blanco

Crotalo is a fairly new kid on the block, but has created quite a following with a number of awards. I've had the Extra Anejo and the Reposado...and was looking forward to trying the base of the entire line.
