Aroma: Definite agave notes with hints of fresh cut grass, mint and anise. It's very earthy and traditional. Flavor: Very interesting and complex. I was expecting something overly earthy by the aroma but it's actually sweeter than I expected. It still has the agave notes and a hint of clay but I also get citrus (which is what I think makes it sweeter). I also get a little of the mint on the finish.

An interesting bottle made specifically for the bar/restaurant industry. While I like this product, it strangely stays almost entirely in the mouth even after swallowing. Considerable alcohol numbing due to the 86 proof, but it seems to balance the spice and agave which are nice, upfront and stay on for a nice long finish. Not really a sipper, but cocktails should be spectacular. As intended?

This tequila has a unique aroma to it, somewhat sour with muted cinnamon. The finish is a little hot but stays contained within the mouth, leaving a sourish aftertaste. This tequila (and its bottle) was designed for cocktail mixing, so think twice before drinking it solo.

This tequila has aromas of cinnamon, green apple and plastic. In the mouth it's slightly sweet with a spicy, early finish.

I like it as a mixing product! Very bartender friendly, easy to poor bottle,I find it spicy and citric witch is a bit unusual been a highlands tequila. I believe the peppery spice notes are good to complement a cocktail but not a sipping tequila. Mixing tequila for quality cocktail.

Complex aroma with strong grassy/vegetal aromas up front followed by mint and then anise. Spicy flavor initially followed by mint and grassy flavors. Not nearly as vegetal as aroma would indicate. Nice, complex, roll of flavors from the front to the back of the mouth. Moderate finish with lingering mint flavor. Very nice.

This is a very nice 86 proof tequila especially for the price point offered. High proof tequilas is not for the faint at heart but I love them!!

Why is it always classical music? Where's the tequila fermented to mariachi?

Nice nose, cooked agave takes over the nose as it should. Spicy and a sweet citrusy flavor that sticks around for a while after you sip.

Aroma: Volcanic minerals,vegetables, alkali aloe, agave, with a pepper note. Palate; oily entry with minerals, black pepper and citrus with honeyed agave taste. Finish is warming with black pepper and mineral. Citrus notes linger with the grass and aloe notes of agave. Vibrant , aromatic and wonderful. Excellent enough to enjoy on its own sipped in a decent glass and cheap enough to mix.

An excellent blanco. Strong agave and slight cotton candy aroma. I concur on the slight acetone aroma. Taste is strong agave, pepper, and slight cinammon. Very good oily finish. Enjoyable. Solid tequila and a great 4 ounce sipper. Re-evaluated and compared against Siempre Blanco. Basically a tie. Both FANTASTIC tequilas. Retried this. Funny what immediately hits that I did not pick up before. Butterscotch! Maybe from sitting in a half filled bottle for a bit.

Not the most pleasant nose, fairly acetone. Flavour is pretty great, balanced with a delicate agave structure. Nice finish, great pepper a touch of heat.

A pleasant - if only the whole not terribly distinctive - entry. Much like my great Aunt Mabel, who, after a 30-year tenure as a receptionist retired to play minesweeper and take short walks. However, she was a consistently polite lady who kept a clean house and wielded a powerful command of the Crescent Heights Dental Association appointment booking system. Farewell, sweet angel of the desk! May the night’s soft breezes and the gentle glimmering of the moon guide your on your final journey.

Smells like a brick oven, standard agave flavour but a bit boozy. Bitter on the front palate to finish but a nice cooked agave base.

Aroma is similar to the smell you get when cutting into a lime.... a touch of coriander. Taste is reminds me of something “funky” but has some interesting fruit notes. Sweet, soft pepper... white pepper?

Absolutely delicious Blanco expression. Subtle white pepper nose. Sweet, peppery, grassy flavor. More grassiness on the finish with a little sourness or astringency at the tail end that you feel as a pucker on the lips and tongue.

Drank this as part of a blind tasting looking for Lower Cost Blancos. This was my least favorite. The nose was of alcohol. The flavor and finish were surprisingly good. Black pepper finish. The cost was the highest. The bottle itself (not that it matters) but reminds me of something a mixto would be in.

Review #322 - Cabeza Tequila Blanco

Cabeza tequila is a blanco only entry hoping to capitalize on the higher proof tequila trend.
