Number Juan Tried this flight in Dec 2018 when I met Alex in Vegas. UPDATE: I'm not sure which lotes I tried 3 yrs ago, but sounds like those batches were better than what some others tasted more recently. ______________________ The entire line is decent. I liked the repo best. blanco a little hot, anejo a little more oaky.

Nose: cooked agave, spearmint, mineral, vegetal , and slight sweetness Flavor: very slight cooked agave, green bell pepper, floral essence of white pepper, and brine Finish: long, hot and black pepper spice, watery mouth feel and leaves the mouth numb.

Nose is faint but agave, and bell peppers work themselves out. The taste is better than I thought it was going to be but not great. Sweet melon, brine, mint, white pepper, caramelized agave. Medium mouth feel and a long spicy hot finish.

Minimal aroma, have to really focus to pick up mineral, herb, light cotton candy, and agave last. Watery and thin mouthfeel. Taste is peppery, slightly sweet and light grass with agave on end. Burn afterwards doused the flavor. Expected more from this one.

This had a mossy, wet mushroom aroma that gave way to green pepper, strong thyme, mint and then cooked agave. On the palate had a lot of minerals/iron, raw and cooked agave, mint and medium to strong olive brine. The finish was unremarkable, short and somewhat bitter.

Slightly musty aroma that is strongly vegetal. Agave and a slight briny note (is it the brine I'm categorizing as musty??) are the most prevalent features. The flavor is sweet peppermint with just a bit of spice that builds in intensity...nice. Medium finish. This is a nice blanco but at the price point ($52) there are plenty of others I would choose first. 8/30/2015

Aroma: briny roasted agave, black pepper, something sweet I can't quite put my finger on, maybe spearmint cookie, and has a bit of a savory note as well Palate: definitely an olive thing going on, roasted agave and black pepper are still there Finish: somewhat short, briny but slightly sweet

Agave and ethanol on the nose. Cooked agave and cinnamon along with pepper notes on the palate. I also get some minerality, which some may describe as “brine” or “salty”, so I’ll let you be the judge. This is a surprisingly good celebrity (Comedians Ron White & Alex Reymundo) tequila, and while not on the TMM additive free list, I have zero indication of anything stupid being added to this blanco (the website advertises this as additive free and no use of diffusers at the distillery). Probably the most enjoyable celebrity tequila I’ve ever had!

Agave, lemon citrus, and pepper forward. Overall not bad. I think the lemony citrus is just a bit too much. Works pretty well in a margarita, but it had me wondering if I put a lemon or lime in it. It seems to enhance the lemon flavor. Still enjoyable though. The price is just a bit steep though to make it a regular.

brine and an underripe/green agave note are at the front of the nose, followed closely by white pepper. Some sweetness on the palate, quite a sharp finish.

My initial concern was the variability in bottles. I must have gotten a good bottle. The main highlight is the brine with citrus. It is true that there is agave, cinnamon, and pepper but brineiness and citrus come through later. This is a nice “gateway “ tequila.

Solid mix of vegetal and minerality. Well balanced and soft, but relative short finish.

It’s one of the first tequilas I’ve ever tried and I fell in love immediately! Still one of my top ones but I have noticed what others talked about with this vegetal funk. Ordered a bottle back in January and it had that taste. I swore it tasted different in a better way about a year ago. Did they change recipe? Maybe. UPDATE 4-1-23 Bought a bottle (LTL149) and it has that classic taste I remember and love!! I’m thinking that it just depends on the batches (duh) which is great news because all natural tequilas and each batch are unique in their own ways! 81–> 83

Number Juan Blanco Tequila has a medium body with a great mouth feel. This tastes like an “old school tequila” by that I mean the agave is not hidden by additives. They are true to their roots! Fresh agave aroma and flavor. This has more going on than your usual Blanco Tequilas I have encountered. A slightly longer finish than most Blanco Tequilas as well! Very well made and classically made as well. We made a Pineapple Margarita with it. It stood up to all the flavors that were going on! I highly recommend this Blanco Tequila by Number Juan!!

There is an unfortunate armoa and flavor of vomit in my last bottle of number Juan, purchased in August 2022. The bottle I had prior was outstanding. But, something went wrong in this bottle. It is crazy how it can have all the normal good flavors and then have a new vomit essence. My girlfriend said it smell like a fruity alcohol vomit. I hate to say it, but it might be best to stay away from Number Juan for a while till this unfortunate situation passes. After letting the drink rest overnight, I noticed much less vomit smell or taste. I’m sorry to type this, but I swear it’s what happened. I will buy another bottle in a few years but not for now.

Tastes a lot less good since Ron White got on the wagon. Unfair perhaps. But there are much better bottles for this money or less.

I really don’t know what’s going on with this tequila. The nose is confusing, to the taste, Reminded me of LaCofradia Nom 1137. The taste is so citrus bright it’s almost unnatural. I let it sit for about 15 minutes prior to tasting, this time, because I tasted three different times. Now, it goes from citrus bright to a quick flash of cinnamon, nutmeg. The look of this tequila is surprisingly light but the mouthfeel and it and surface tension look heavy and Viscous. This tequila is unbalanced. I suspect they took advantage of the 1 percent rule. With all this being said, there are too many tequilas out there that are far better, same money!

Combination of cooked & raw agave on the nose/palate with hints of spices/pepper. Brine and bright finish, acceptable for sipping and will probably make a great Margarita!
