Bright and floral nose, a post-rain earthiness vibe with a touch of citrus. Medium body, nice legs on the glass. Immediately get cooked agave with a touch of banana, moving quickly to pepper and a satisfying heat on the roof of the mouth. Relatively brief finish, but there is complexity hanging around much longer. A commendable pour.

Really great nose, not roasted agave but some earthy notes that make me wanna dive in and try. This distillery has a house style of nutty flavour that I’m guessing comes from the yeast, I definitely want more agave present but it’s nice enough to sip on.

Aroma: Round, roasted, caramelized, brown sugary agave. Peach, licorice and a slight citrus note. Spicy with a perfume/floral element. Flavor: Huge agave flavor here, with complex richness. Oily. Pleasing cinnamon, cloves, anise, vanilla meld. Pepper pulling up the rear. It’s reminiscent of chewing on horno cooked agave. Longish finish with some heat and licorice.

Wonderful aroma, grassy and just a hint of ripe citrus. Finish is ok, slightly astringent, but not a deal breaker.

Quite herbal in smell with some fennel notes. Quite spicy on entry with a really nice mouth feel. Some of the fennel is there in the mouth as well as great agave presence. A quick fade of flavors resolve to some prolonged tongue buzz from alcohol. Pretty good stuff.

Nice to see this tahona-made product entering the marketplace. Another win for legitimate artisanal tequila! This has a nice grassy herbal aroma with some anise. Nice oily mouth feel, and a shorty but slightly spicy finish.

I appreciate the transparency of process info found on the label. I believe the label to be (or should be) the contract between buyer and seller. Cooked agave, butter, anise, roses, white pepper, funk. Sweet arrival, cooked (stewed) agave, pleasant burn. Short to medium dry finish. The reason I reduced points on this otherwise very solid blanco is that the aroma and pallet seemed slightly out of phase. I will most certainly revisit. After all it may have been my pallet that day. ¡Salud!

A complex blanco at a good price. The nose is more complex than the taste, but overall a nice blanco if you favor smoke and anise notes in your blanco. Don't rush this blanco. Let this breath a while to maximize what it has to offer. On the nose: Light agave, smoke, and anise up front. With some rest hints of banana, mint and white pepper open up. Perhaps some jasmine and citrus underlying beneath. On the palate: Agave, smoke and pepper straight away. These elements overpower and leave very little in the mid palate.. A mild buttery mouthfeel. A nice peppry and smooth finish.

Really enjoyed this blanco. Great flavor and really loved the finish and the complexity of flavors. Sampled it with a friend and need to get a bottle of my own to have a little more time tasting it. Life is about first impressions and this blanco made a good first impression.

Flavor and finish come through nicely but I don't love it. I've tried it many times hoping to come around. Has steep competition being in the $50 range but glad I tried it as you can't go wrong with a Tahona made product.

This is a real mellow well made blanco. It has a nice clean shine and viscous semi oily mouth feel. Citrus, agave,subtle mineral and fruit. Dry long finish.

The nose is like burnt rubber as is the taste. After several attempts to drink it I cannot finish one pour. It sits on my bar as a reminder expensive tequila is not always great tequila.

Great summer sipper. Citrus, pepper and floral in the aroma. Sweet cooked agave, vegetal and honey in the mouth. Barrel spice, nutty and slight jalapeño in the finish.

Alcohol flavour on the nose with a strong cooked agave aroma. Sweet fruity flavour backed with anise notes that sits on the front of the palate. Smooth to finish, left with alcohol flavours to linger.

I felt the anise flavor was almost over powering. I’m sure that the reposado would be better.

More of a Añejo/occasional Reposado and up guy but got a free sample of this and loved it as it is very smooth with beautiful sweet, spicy, herbal, earthy, and briny Olive agave flavors with a long finish.

San Matias Tahona Blanco – “Rock Star”

There’s a lot to love about this particular tequila, and the name alone makes one reason clear. Any tequila that involves a tahona in the production process will win a special place in our heart, and this one is no exception.
