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.

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.

I really like this Tahona version of her blanco. Great citrus notes over cooked agave, smoother than I expected. Delicious!

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.

I'm not a blanco drinker or at least I wasn't until I tried this. herbal, spicey, peppery and sweet. It's like cooked agave in a bottle. one of my favorites and the only blanco I drink.

Somewhat sweet entry with thick mouthfeel. Nice raw agave mid-palate with medium heat finish. Much better than my first tasting!
