I feel I make make the same review over and over for this distilleries products......smells and tastes like someone shoved your head into a copper still. Tequila people taking the time to do things right, you never lose sight of the roasted agave.

Los Abuelos Blanco: Lot 60-B. (Fortaleza) I bought this bottle while visiting the distillery in Tequila, Mexico. It’s a beautiful property but this is a tequila review so here I go. On the nose I detect a lot of fresh agave and citrus. I smell lemon and a faint sweet agave finish. The taste is a mouthful of cooked agave, just the way a blanco should be. There is a pleasant white pepper finish. This tequila is well worth the price. FYI: This tequila is branded as Fortaleza in the US.

It's a tequila that I revisit often. The lots change a bit but the buttery/ agave aromas stand out in this product. It is a complex tequila that shines in its flavor profile.

One of the finer Blanco tequilas for the money

I love the tequilas made using the old school methods. Tahona extraction, stone ovens, open air fermentation & copper stills have the best effect on the agave. A little expensive but well worth it.

Aroma is very wild, smells of a Raicilla. Sulfur big time. Acid drives the palate. Interesting but not what I like in Tequilas.

Definitely a great tequila. Tried this at the los abuelos/Fortaleza distillery in tequila. Not sure why los abuelos has a higher rating than Fortaleza as it is the exact same product just different labeling... a great tequila non the less!

This is the version available in Mexico. In USA it is the Fortaleza label. Nice aroma of agave and yeast. Flavor of agave and black pepper. Long, pleasant finish. Value was based on comparison to other artisanal, tahona offerings.

Suave en boca, a mi punto de vista un tequila bien hecho, aroma a agave cocido y tierra
