This one just does it for me. Heavy on the agave on nose and palate, delicious minerality. So damn good. It elevated a margarita to new heights and is also great for sipping if you can handle the 110. This is, for me, a near perfect expression of blanco tequila. Terralta 110 and G4 108 are fantastic, but Tapatio is the GOAT for me.

Nose- Cooked agave, black pepper, grapefruit, lightly floral and grassy. The alcohol is present but not dominating which blows my mind. Flavor- Cooked agave, black pepper, white pepper, a little de-seeded jalapeno, lime, mint, and just a touch of olive brine. Once again the alcohol is obviously there but dangerously easy on me. Finish- pleasant sweet heat that lasts! This liquid is insanely good.

First Tapatio product I’ve had and it’s a winner. Tons of roasted agave and pepper throughout. The alcohol is definitely there but wasn’t as a prominent on the nose or in flavor as I expected from a high proof. Helps add to the flavor without overpowering all the other amazing flavors of this tequila. Very complex flavor with bright agave and pepper, minerality and I get a little molasses, brown sugar, cinnamon flavor as well. Finish is long and absolutely delicious. Every sip I seemed to find more flavor. One of my favorites and a tequila I just keep coming back to.

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...

This 110 is just as fun and playful as the 80, but with more complexity. It has the green apple, pear and olives as the 80, but with more herbal, minty punch. I love me some high proof blanco and this does not disappoint. Price is fair considering you are getting a liter instead if 750mls. It’s light and mineraly with wet stone aroma. Sweet agave with black pepper, clove and cherry on the tongue. I love this juice from La Alteña.

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!

Aroma, you kind of have to fight past the initial alcohol to get to agave, ligjt sugar, and mineral scents. It does open a bit more after sitting but flavor is slifht burn, agave, brown sugar, mint, Jalapeño, then a burn with the finish. Great mixer for the price but would probably sip just as much

Bottle: Lot TB110-032, 01/08/2022 Appearance: Clear Nose: Cooked agave, black and white pepper, citrus, minerality, wet earth, grapefruit, lemon, lime, orange, pineapple, lemongrass, olive, brine, … Palate: Cooked agave, black and white pepper, citrus, mint, lime, brine, jalapeño, alcohol, butter, olive, subtle smoke, lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, mango, and anise…I feel like I’m repeating myself from the regular blanco, but a lot of the same flavors are there (albeit with a stronger punch!) Finish: Very long, with the flavors giving way to the alcohol warmth over time…very enjoyable Overall: As someone who really likes Tapatio blanco, this 110-proof version does not disappoint. The neck pour was a little more alcohol-predominant, but the following glasses (especially after letting it rest for about 10 minutes) really allows the strong flavors to shine through. In a margarita, the flavors come through equally as well and compliments the other ingredients perfectly. This is definitely going to be a regular purchase.

It's a burner. Not bad at all. But I Prefer Terralta 110. I would use this as a mixer.
