Aroma is cooked agave, some toasty cinnamon, a bit of black pepper and raw agave (or perhaps that’s citrus). Taste is a bit of black pepper spice up front followed by a nice mellow sweet agave and a hint of cinnamon with an herbal deal alongside. Medium finish and not overly complex. I like and will definitely buy again. Great value!

Black pepper, cooked agave, and citrus aromas. A tiny bit of olive too. Slightly sweet cooked agave and mineral flavor with a medium thick mouthfeel. Easy to drink and definitely recommend to any type of tequila drinker.

Sweet cooked agave aroma, hint of cinnamon and slight aroma. Sweet taste and a black pepper finish. Not very complex but flavorful- just a little too sweet for my palate. Perfect for newcomers!

Agave aroma at first, more on the herbal profile. Cooked agave and raw agave as well. No harsh alcoholic part on aroma. Slight pepper. Taste is better than aroma. Rich minerality comes to mouth, but no overwhelming earthy taste. Pretty smooth and nice to sip. For the price point, this could be one of my favorite tequilas. Doesnt feel like 40% alc/vol, some character would be nice.

Had this at El Gallo Antanero in Guadalajara. This 38% had a strong agave nose followed by alcohol, which surprised me a bit. It is quite vegetal and on both nose and palate has pepper (black and green), grass and uncooked green vegetables. It has a long, pleasant finish.

Nose: I’m greeted with warm caramelized agave notes, bright citrus, cinnamon spiciness. There are vegetative green notes of fresh cut grass, green tea, lite white pepper and trace green pepper aroma. Some mineral presence. Flavor: Flavors follow aromas pretty congruously. Semi oily sweet agave, covered in a layer of cinnamon graham cracker crumbs with a drizzle of honey. The white pepper heat has become more elevated, with some unidentifiable green chile? heat.

Nose is stellar: fresh agave, grassy and hints of citrus and mint. Medium to thick mouthfeel with flavors of cooked agave, anise and awesome kick of pepper that rises all the way through a long and enjoyable finish. Heat that sits in the back of mouth.

Cooked agave, then a touch of sweetness mid, then salinity and a dry finish. So good!

Might be the best Blanco for the price on the market! TONS of agave balanced nicely with green pepper corn and a slight boozy finish. I’m gonna have to stock up and make this my house pour.

Viva Mexico recently began being imported into the US by Pura Vida Tequila Company as an economical, puro, 100% agave tequila. Since I can't do 2 separate reviews, I have averaged the point total and included my notes for both the US import and the Mexican bottling for the blanco, on this page; Viva Mexico is a very tasty blanco (MX bottling - 38%) with citrus and caramel tones. Nice long finish with notes of dry earth - I dig it! And I gave it 87 points out of 100. US bottling (40%); While this is not a life-changing tequila (unless you've only been drinking bad tequilas), its a great deal for the price! And at $15 for a 1L bottle it can be a game changer for cocktails in bars & restaurants that are still using mixto or cheap mass produced puro tequilas. Is Viva Mexico's blanco complex?, Well, no, not really. The nose is a little sharp, but has lots of citrus and cooked agave notes topped off with a touch of acetone, it smells like it is big and machismo. The taste is very similar to what I found in the nose as it starts with a bit of an alcoholy-acetone entry that leads to black pepper, then a cooked agave center and finishes with strong notes of grapefruit peel. And yes, this is a machismo tequila! 76 points out of 100.

Wet Cement and Herbal nose. Agave and Herbal taste profile. BIG agave finish. No burn and not much pepper. I like it. Would definitely drink and recommend.

I tried this several times over two weeks and found that it changes pretty drastically. Right out of the freshly opened bottle, it was similar to Siete Leguas blanco, but a little smoother. Now, two weeks later, it got a lot more fruity with some more anise. It has a slight maraschino cherry taste that I dislike it. To me, that’s not agave and it reminds me more of a cherry and banana liqueur. Pueblo Viejo and especially Arette Classic both have that same flavor and I hate it. If you like the two previously mentioned tequilas, you will like this.

When you find a tequila that you know you want to try, don't stop searching until you find it. it took many months to obtain Viva Mexico but it was worth the wait. This is a joy to sip. Warm and Clean. Nice mid heat and delightful finish. Find yourself a bottle

Minerals, cooked agave & alcohol on the nose. Sweet cooked agave on entry with tons of agave, minerals and pepper. Finish is long and somewhat hot, the sweetness from the agave turns mineral as it goes down. Nice!

I get cooked agave on the nose. The palate is cooked agave, minerality, light citrus, and pepper. The finish is a lingering light sweetness.

This is the Mexico version of the blanco. Aroma of alcohol, cooked agave and citrus. Flavor of cooked agave and black pepper. Nice medium finish.

A truly awesome tequila! My person favorite when it comes to "high proof" tequila that I was able to sample at the distillery, unfortunately unavailable on the market currently. Still, even their official Mexican releases at 38 % abv versions are great. The older local design is less filtered(my personal preference) and has a fruity, peachy character, especially at higher alc levels (apart from.the agave notes) and the newer design seems to be more herbal with a nice vegetal finish. Rating tries to represent the avg of both.

Nom 1414, Feliciano Vivanco y Asociados, makes some of the best tequila on the market. Viva Mexico, being the staple brand of this distillery, truly exemplifies the quality and integrity that the Vivanco’s put into every batch. If you haven’t tried this - do so. I also highly recommend trying other brands from nom 1414 as well. You won’t look back!

Minty agave forward aroma. Nutty on the palate. Hot to start with a nice almond sweetness to finish
