In the glass it’s perfectly clear and clean with tears that definitely linger. The expected mouthfeel is something to look forward to. On the nose it’s agave front and center. Fresh rain and minerals are also there, waiting patiently. The palate is again cooked agave dominant with minerals, black pepper, and grass complimenting nicely. Great mouthfeel as expected. It’s got a long finishing heat with a lingering vegetal component that is not unwelcome. Definitely a regular in my home collection!

One of the best examples of Los Altos tequila. Nice floral, agave forward, butter, light spice and pepper with a little citrus...just absolutely amazing

Aroma : Cooked agave, peppercorns, vegetal and light earth. Little bit of citrus here too. Taste : Lots of agave, black pepper and there's some earth and grass notes here as well that are unique in character. The trademark grass and earth of this tequila hold the place of minerality with Pasote. Full and thick flavor. Finish : Long and prolongs more cooked agave flavors and earth. It doesn't really do this tequila justice to say it tastes like "agave, pepper, earth, and grass" there's something unique about these flavors that you have to experience.

Oh yes. This is where it’s at. Minerals on the nose, limestone. Taste is agave forward, well rounded, slightly sweet. Fantastic taste. Great long finish, with just enough heat to remind you it’s a blanco. Love it

OMG this is amazing!! Tons of agave with a confectionary backdrop, it literally makes me want to drink it by the pint!

This tequila has a wonderful nose with notes of agave, earthy tones and citrus. Wonderful flavors of cooked agave and pepper with a beautiful balanced finish. Just a great blanco and one of my favorite blancos to sip

Cooked agave with a sweet floral and slight citrus on the nose. A full flavored blanco with nice long, smooth and well rounded finish. It’s one of the best out there.

Grassy nose, with nice earth and mineral notes. Some pineapple and a hint of lactic. Big ripe agave notes. Nice oily viscosity covers your tongue with light sweetness and crisp elements. Nice spiciness, and a faint taste of dill. A little smokiness on the finish.

Nose of cooked agave and pepper. Few pearls hang on the glass while thick legs slowly sheet away. Mild entry that coats the palate, pleasantly viscous, but not in a thick sticky way. Moderate cooked agave, grapefruit and pepper notes predominate on the palate with very slight hints of butterscotch? Flavorful but not aggressive. Finish is slightly dry on the top of the palate, long and peppery with some baked agave sweetness lingering.

I also brought this wonderful spirit back from Tlaquepaque, Jal. I think I paid 200 pesos. I'm would be matching John Welch's rating with a 94 but I want to explain how I got to a 90. Aroma 20 flavor 30 finish 24 value 10. This tequila had everything I want except it was a little light on the nose. I hope it will be available for purchase in the US at a similar price range as I found in Mexico otherwise it will change my overall rating if I have to pay the ridiculous US prices.

By design this tequila has a very low methanol content of less than 150ppm. This is accomplished from the very start by hand selecting only the finest estate grown agaves, trimming close to eliminate the waxy green leaves and by not adding any additives to the water used to steam the agave, which most distilleries use to prevent corrosion. The steam is then applied from the top down, which no one does and from the bottom up as the rest do. This prevents overcooking the agave on the bottom of the horno and undercooking at the top. After crushing the agave with a device of the owner's design, rainwater is added to make the fermentation slow and consistant after which a double distillation occurs in a copper still. The entire process is as clean and green as is humanly possible. It shows in the final product. Highly recommended.

Aroma of wet cement and dirt with slight floral scent of sweet spice. Initial mild floral flavor along with something else I would describe as yeasty or bread-y. The flavor then builds to a peppery spice. Long warm, spicy finish. 7/24/2015 (updated)

Aroma: The aroma is very interesting. It's a little sour and earthy. I get notes of citrus and clay. There is a hint of agave but it is very subtle. Flavor: Slight hint of pepper and raw agave. It's pretty mellow in terms of flavor but it builds into a pretty powerful finish.

It's a good blanco with a very nice mouthfeel and green elements, which somehow evoke other very popular blancos. The fact there is absolutely no burn pleasantly surprises in the entry, but short after ends up defining a certain lack of complexity.

I'm no expert tequila rater but here goes nothing. I brought this back from Arandas on my last trip and remember it being about $13 usd, a tremendous value. Very smooth for a Blanco, no burn at any stage of the tasting. I get lots of citrus and the after taste is very sweet. This is the first blanco I've tried where the oiliness on your tongue really stands out. Updated years later. Still oily in a good way. Green apple, grassy. Retails for $37 US and that's a very fair price.

This blanco may be one of the easiest to drink because there is absolutely zero burn. Part of me loves a really long finish, but I can see the value of a tequila that is ultra clean, like this one. This is a good choice when introducing someone to the spirit for the first time. It will leave them with a favorable impression of tequila.

Fantastic. Smooth and PACKED with flavor. Very vegetal but not bitter or unpleasant. One of the best I’ve had.

Kinda forgettable. While not bad nothing special. Fresh earthy aroma, smooth but unexceptional body. Little pepper, little sour lime, fresh cut grass. Short finish. This was touted about and rated high by the panel. Surprises me, I’d take Riazul, Don Fernando, 1921 or Mexicana Herencia Blanco’s all over this one at the same price point. Personally I think it needs a little more resting time in a barrel. Oddly enough I will move up to the Reposado. I’m curious where it goes.

Very nice clean minerality and agave notes on the nose and they turn into some complex herbal and spice notes on the palate. This is definitely a top 3 blanco for me so far.

Great aroma of cooked agave and bright citrus. However, as soon as the tequila hits the pallet it explodes with what I can only explain as raw/undercooked pinas that translate to such a unsatisfying green finish. Used to be one of my favorites but mass production has effected this in the worst way.
