Huge flavor. Great for sipping. Killer in margaritas. Big green pepper and citrus notes. Great all around and a good value for the proof and 1L size.

Aroma : Vegetal, grassy, citrus, and herbal notes accent light alcohol and raw agave. Taste : Sweet cooked agave and light alcohol. Peppery heat with cloves, pear/peach, and earth. As with other high proofs, the alcohol is not overpowering here, but serves to give more depth to the other notes. Finish : Long and slightly hot with black pepper, cloves, and some potato. Usually I review all of the base level tequilas (Blanco, Reposado, Añejo) in a brand before moving onto the things like extra añejos and high proofs, but like the Excelencia, I had heard so many great things about this bottle, I had to open this up first. And I'm glad I did.

The Camarenas know how to make tequila. This high proof tequila is a treat. The nose is strong and full of fresh agave, green apple and alcohol; in a good way. I taste white pepper and sweet agave. The flavor is intense and the finish is excellent. It’s truly a treat for blanco lovers. ¡Salud!

Legit one of the best tequilas ever made, it’s almost unbelievable that something could have this high of an ABV and still achieve balance and subtlety! Agave for days from start to finish, it has some tropical fruit going on but really this is about agave. Makes a mean cocktail if you’re in the market...

A lot going on here. Nose: Vegetal cucumber, citrus, licorice nose. Minerals and a celery/thyme herbal note. Taste of mature agave with a nutty peach note. Coats your tongue with a rich buttery feel. Some peppery heat and a bit of salinity. Finishes with fading pepper heat and a banana, anise, and almond tease. Good balance for all that is going on in this tequila.

Really enjoyed the strong agave presence. The finish is strong with a mineral lingering in the mouth. I'm sure it makes a great margarita that will knock anyone's socks off. Salud!

Sweet, floral nose, with a vanilla note. Very sweet entry, which turns a little acidic and bitter. The sweetness continues across the tongue all the way to the finish, but at the end the bitter notes become more grassy and green. The alcohol is never overpowering, but a few drops of water really improve the taste experience.

Blind rated. After pouring there is a bit of acetone in the nose, which could indicate some little defect in fermentation, but after resting a while in the glass it opens up and it's good. A lot of beautiful floral agave, with some alcohol and maybe still some trace of acetone as well. Lots of agave and spice on the palate, some pepper. Some bitterness in the medium agave finish. It's a bit unbalanced, but very good nonetheless.

Green agave on the nose. Pepper along with alcohol leading to a nice long finish with some tongue buzzing.

Nice nose, clean, sweet, and very floral. The flavor is full of sweetness the cooked agave comes through. The finish had nice spice and was long lasting.

Smells like Arandas! High proof doesn't bother the taste.

It will get you drunk. I am changing my opinion on this tequila. Now that it has been opened for over a month it has really opened up. Love it

I know this is going to sound incredibly strange but the aroma is overwhelmingly buttery. To the point of smelling like buttered popcorn at the movies. There is a subtle note of agave but it's minimal. The flavor is hot but full of raw agave. You can definitely tell this is high proof. There's also some anise and butter on the finish. This one definitely hangs around.

Strong, rich vegetal aroma with prevalent agave. Fresh and clean (without the yeasty "funk" of sample 1). Heat and spice show upfront but followed by a fruity sweetness (much more complex in flavor than sample 1). The finish is long and lingering. Although high proof, this one tastes like something you could sip on a nice, summer evening.

This blanco is unlike any other I can think of. Intense agave flavors, scents and finish. The finish lingers for a few minutes. I'm partial to blancos with a peppery taste and this is the ultimate. The nose can be a little overwhelming but that's to be expected with a 110 proof.

Rated blind. Fantastic agave nose accented with what I presume to be some aromas from the cooking process—not smokey per se, but something. A bit thin in the mouth while the flavor sneaks up and hits you over the head with agave and smoke. The finish explodes with pepper and spice and lasts forever. Don't sip too fast, or the overproof will get ya! This is what it's all about right here folks! What a treat!

Here's something every tequila lover needs to try. it definitely has some heat can't say no burn on this blanco 110 proof. Its a pleasant burn though not harsh at all. its more heat than burn. It"s silky texture and burn is actually perfect. not complex though. I get that nice sweet roasted cooked agave any more I think would take that sweetness over the top. The long agave notes last throughout its profile. it has lots of pepper, some citrusy grassy and earthy notes. needs to be let out and open up a bit. oh and Value that gives it a really good score. I can get this for about $50 i can't think of another bottle with this quality at this price. maybe the artenom 1123 at $55 comes to min.

A great balance for high proof! Inviting agave, lemon zest, mineral nose. Sweet almond, buttered popcorn entry... very mellow initial flavor for a 110, but quickly gives way to green peppercorn, spice, brine, lime and roasted agave lingering on and on and on for an incredible, deliciously long finish. Long legs. Packs a punch. Not for the novice or faint hearted.

At 55%, unsurprisingly, the nose is quite hot but there are some aromas underneath the ethonal. Black pepper, cooked agave, celery, and some clay/earthy thing going on. The taste and finish are absolute showstoppers. An abundance of green flavours: celery, green chartreuse, sage, green bell pepper, and lime zest. That black pepper and cooked agave are also noticeable. The finish is loooooong, dry, and herbaceous. At $78 cnd, this is a bargin and the taste completes with any blanco on the market. If the nose was a bit less hot it'd score in the high 90s.

Exceptional. Beautiful balance for a high proof. Brine, veggie, pepper, citrus, metallic nose. Has a light peppery dry sweet finish. Doesn’t overpower you with a bang but evens out really nicely with an oily feel in the mouth. Citrus, agave, salty, herby flavors.

Very strong tequila bite, pepper nose, no soft taste for the American pallete

The nose I get a strong alcohol smell and let it breathe before enjoying it. This is when the magic happens I get black pepper, citrus and it has strong agave flavor. The finish is long and lingers. I got this on sale and will say it’s going to be added to my liquor cabinet. Carlos Camarena is a true artist and craftsman. I prefer this one over the regular blanco. The flavor is more noticeable here.
