Pretty interesting tequila profile, and at thr time so much different than G4 and aterralta. On the nose I get a more fruity profile. Notes of cooked agave at first and then some slight pepper. Clean and pleasant on my nose, pointing out how good distilled this tequila is. About tasting, slight pepper on the tongue's tip. Nice character, balanced after taste. The empty glass can bare a lot of raw agave aromas. I mean, like freshly harvest piñas laying in the agave fields. Just great!!

Nose: Minerals, honeydew, cinnamon. Maple or molasses? You can almost smell rainwater in this. Flavor: Fine white pepper, spiced nuts, almonds and nougat.

Aroma : Lots of cooked agave, some notes of black pepper, earth and some minerality. Taste : Fairly thick and oily and very agave forward. Some more of the earth and mineral notes from the aroma. Each note works very well together. Finish : Long lasting with more agave and earth/mineral. Also some vegetal notes in the finish as well. This is tequila made right, every note works well together in all aspects. The only way this could be better is if it was a little more complex.

Wet grass and agave on the nose. Super clean flavor profile, hints of pear. Clean finish with a nice heat. Another fantastic 1579 blanco

One word... MINERALS! Incredible. Crisp. Clean. Flavor is smooth. The finish starts smooth and then heats up a bit (in a good way).

I tried this with high expectations while visiting Tommy's in San Francisco. It's good quality tequila but I'll take a bottle of G4.

Glass: Crystal clear. Thick and syrupy in the glass, the wide flat legs take time to become defined. Slow tears take time to form as the coating sheets away leaving a moderate number of pearls clinging to the glass. Aroma: Strong green agave is accented with white pepper. The agave presents as vegetal in the manner of those with thicker waxy green skins. Zucchini comes to mind, or maybe melon rind. Notes of green apple or green pineapple, lemongrass and wet earth are also detectable. Entry: Initially watery to slightly oily, entry is smooth and wet. Flavor: A touch of sweetness with green vegetal flavors appear first, quickly followed by a pepper bite on the back of the palate that grows to include most of the mouth. Possibly a hint of smoke. Finish: The long finish consists of pepper, minor vegetal notes, some wet unripe citrus and minerality along the edges of the palate and dry white pepper in the center of the palate. Conclusion: This is a very green and peppery tequila with an uncommon character. For the adventuresome. Felipe Camarena is forging his own path with something unafraid of breaking molds.

Very earthy/vegetal aroma - fresh grass, clay/dirt and uncooked agave. The flavor directly follows the aroma with black pepper, mint and green grass. The earthy/vegetal characteristic also shows with a clay/dirt flavor as well. This is not the wet stone/concrete flavor but just dirt. The finish is medium to long. Very nice blanco in the traditional style. 4/9/2016

great mineral flavor

Nose is a wonderfully balanced mixture of mineral and rainwater. Characteristic to this tequila is that unique but unmistakable smell in the air before it rains; if you know you know. Flavor is similarly balanced and earthy/stony. Rainwater flavor is expressed further throughout the somewhat brief finish. One of my all time favorites.

I know this stuff is coveted but all I get is dirty earthy clay from it. My favourite blancos are Ocho, El Tesoro and Tapatio and this tastes like soil and rain water (which is the point I know) but it doesn't agree with my taste preferences which is unfortunate as it is considered one of the best!

Love this blanco, especially at this price point!! Super smooth with pepper and grass notes on the front end and an easy finish. Not super complex but a really pleasant sipper as I sit here and watch my Lakers win one…will 100% pick this blanco up again.
