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.

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

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.
