Agree with numerous other ratings. Much going on with this. Much good flavour. But upon immediate opening has an odour and taste of alcohol ear swabs. After 30 minutes resting it is MUCH better. This is a complex tequila. Rebellious.

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.
