Aroma: All cooked agave up front, like a freshly opened agave oven, coupled with cinnamon and a clean minerality throughout. Taste: Light and creamy sweetness, cooked agave and notes of sugar cane. Finish: A burst of cooked agave, citrus, and black pepper. The most notable part was a lingering aftertaste of the aforementioned flavors that seems to coat not only the tongue, but the roof of the mouth as well.
NOM 1588 | Nice nose of cooked agave, lemon, and more of a tropical vibe like coconut or pineapple. If you blindfolded me I could be convinced it’s a mai tai. Mouthfeel is a little thicker than usual, and tastes of cooked agave, lemon, lime, but a little bit of acetate note that I don’t enjoy. Finish loses that flavor and is pleasantly long, and citrus forward.
Cooked agave, apple, pear, and floral notes. Very surprised to see this tequila at $19 a bottle..amazing value!
Agave, hay, and sawdust on the nose. Flavor bring agave and some light jalapeño with a medium finish that brings a slight tingle. Nothing too bold but not too light. Extreme value.
Aroma: clean and plain. Alcohol. Not even much agave Taste: very plain. I dont get much of anything. Almost like licking steel… which isnt bad? Raw agave maybe Finish: short. Watery. Not unpleasant but not anything to get excited about This almost tastes like a kirkland or espolon Tres agaves??
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!
NOM 1588 | Grass notes. nice agave aroma. pepper little heat, rough finish. not bad for the price. Repo is preferred
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! Updated review from a blind tasting - lol N- agave, nutmeg, green apple T- toasted agave, apple, bell pepper MF- medium body F- long peppery finish
Earth and mushroom on the nose. This has more viscosity than most and a quite sharp ethanol presence with some natural agave sweetness. Fades to a vegetal/savory taste that totally speaks to the nose.
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 | Aroma: agave, fruitty, floral, minerals, slight mint Flavor: apgave, spicey Finish: medium, tongue tingly
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.
NOM 1588 | I found a dusty old bottle from 2015 at a local liquor store in Arizona! Needless to say I was very excited to try this one. Nose: at first this blanco was nothing but alcohol. I let this one sit for about ten minutes given the age. After about ten minutes it opened up and I got notes of mineralogy, agave and citrus but also still quite a bit of alcohol. Palate: the taste instantly reminded me of vacations in Mexico. Agave bomb for sure but also a ton of minerals, almost metallic. Citrus and pepper on the back end. Finish: this particular blanco actually left me with quite a bit of heat in my chest and throat. There was also a lingering bitterness. I’m glad I was able to experience this one. While it wasn’t my favorite it’s a great budget additive free option that has a finish much more stronger than a typical 80 proof. Would be a great mixer.
NOM 1588 | Douce et très facile à boire.
NOM 1588 | Lote: MEX38 14-12-21. Cooked agave, "hard" slightly metallic, herbal, pepper spiciness.
Blind taste tested Aroma: Something hard to pinpoint, but delectable, almost pineapple. Also, light agave and citrus. Taste: Creamy, agave, pineapple, melon Finish: very minimal bite, melon, cooked agave, cinnamon I wrote down that, “I kinda love it.” I was very surprised to find out it was El Mexicano.
NOM 1588 | Just a lot of cooked agave Minimal pepper Less sweet more minerality Very little heat on the finish
NOM 1588 | NOM 1588 This could be the best $20 tequila Blanco I have ever tasted. Don’t let the price fool you, this is a solid sipper. Excellent aroma and flavor with little to no burn, short finish. I can’t imagine anything better for this price point. Good stuff and additive free. Get it before it becomes popular because it will.
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. as for value there's nothing better in my area, full points there.
This is an amazing tequila, is so easy to taste. Don’t have too much alcohol when you drink es it

A –A musty start (mushroom, yeast, olive, etc.) in the aroma phase. There’s cooked agave, licorice, and a small dose of vanilla. A moment of apple/pear on the nose, which was nice. In addition to the alcohol, I picked up another chemical scent, maybe rubber? It isn’t a bad smell, but not my favorite of the tasting session. T – Baking spices and licorice/anise, a blend of raw and cooked agave. I’m tasting black tea and black pepper. The peppermint and vanilla combo is interesting. F – Following the theme of the taste, I’m almost getting a chai tea vibe, had all the elements of ginger, cinnamon, clove, black pepper, and tea. Overall – This is a solid blanco, but not my favorite.
