NOM 1588 | NOM1588 - Tequilas El Mexicano Hecho en Arandas Jalisco The clean scent of cooked agave jumps out of my Stölzle Jarrito tasting glass. As I continue to nose this Blanco the clean agave scent turns buttery. There are faint hints of minerality, lime, pepper, anise, muted mint and fresh herbs. The peppery agave makes itself known right away. There’s a slight agave sweetness and some alcohol burn along with white pepper. There are some slight vegetal notes in the background. On the finish your have some lingering buttery agave and a peppery capsaicin mouthfeel. This affordable Blanco is a fun sipper and an excellent choice for craft cocktails. Salud!

Nose- agave, grassy and vegetal, clay, minerals. Taste- cooked agave, minerals, melon, cinnamon, citrus, and a little bit of sweetness. Thin mouth feel. Finish- sweetness quickly fades leaving just a touch of cinnamon heat. Value- $40 in Michigan so it's a decent value!

A bit medicinal from ethanol initially, this is better after sitting in the glass for 10 minutes or so. Agave, citrus, nice mouth feel and $23 US. This came from HiTime 2 years ago, inside the front label is Lote 02 07/06/2015. It gets a 9 for value. Sad now that I didn't pick up the reposado as well.

NOM 1588 | Served in a Nos’r stainless steel nosing glass. Nose is mint, agave, and light citrus. Light body, floral and citrus notes with a touch of cinnamon and pepper. A little thin and the finish isn’t incredibly complex but the mild and enjoyable heat lingers on the roof of the mouth. Super pleased with this at $299 pesos

NOM 1588 | 38% ABV Mexican release Invigorating nose: Fruity and floral with a toasted nutty feel to the agave that is prominent. There are earth and mineral notes and the aroma of sweet fennel resting in a musty root cellar. Also, baking spice and pepper make this an interesting nosing. Flavors: Initial burst of bold cinnamon and jalapeño. Followed up with with a balancing act of creamy almond paste, vanilla and white pepper zing. It coats the mouth in a rich fashion. This picks up a couple of points on value. A very nice bargain tequila.

NOM 1588 | Pleasant minty aroma, oily body and great price! ($19). Only downside- can detect stainless steel process in sharpness, especially in the finish. A little copper would greatly improve this.

NOM 1588 | Wow, a $19 Blanco that delivers significant bang for the buck. Has a bit of a funky almost lactic aroma. Feels super thick and oily in the mouth. The finish ends slightly rough but still pleasant.

Nose has crisp clean agave with some mint, pepper and minerals. Taste hit with some nice peppery agave and minerals with that little minty notes. It leaves you with a lingering pepper agave finish with a creamy mouth feel. Good price, suggest to friends and would sip again.

finally another offering in my region that is additive free. the other being Tapatio. the nose is a bit underwhelming and perhaps a wee bit acetone. but agave is dominant just like I want for a Blanco. oily mouth feel agave ,pepper , bit of herbaceousness. finish is nice and warm but not as "full" as something higher end. all in all I will def keep this one beside my Tapatio for a nice Blanco sipper option.

Nice legs on the glass so this one has a nice viscosity to it. On the nose it's has a robust aroma of baking spices with a hint if brine and citrus . Nice oily mouthfeel followed by an explosion of baking spices from the cooked agave. getting citrus like orange peel and grapefruit followed by a hint if bitterness to even things out and on the finish it's a light sweetness. awesome everyday sipper at a bargain price! I am stocking up!

NOM 1588 | Good nose with agave and fruit aroma. A prominent, up front agave flavor with cinnamon, pepper and a touch of jalapeño. A decent finish. Very easy and enjoyable to sip. A bargain, but I would not feel cheap serving this one to friends. I will buy this one again.
