Similar to Pasote, in that it tastes like you're drinking refreshing water from a spring. It's so full of sweetness from the agave, earthy anise, buttery, that it's unbelievable.

Aroma : Cooked agave, earth and minerals predominate. I also get notes of pickle and vanilla. Taste : Cooked agave, earth and minerals. Vanilla and olives. There is some sweetness here but it isn't overpowering in any way. Finish : Long and prolongs the same flavor notes, with a little more emphasis on the earth and minerals. This has lots of great flavors, and the light sweetness works with the earth and minerals to give a nice profile. This is probably my favorite Blanco of the big 3 NOM 1579 brands.

Is there such a thing as too much agave or something being too good?!? This tequila is phenomenal on every level, I have absolutely no critique to write about. Get a case and squirrel this away for anytime you need to smile......it’s that good!!

Medium legs. Crisp notes of rich baked agave, pine needles and dill. Softer notes of vanilla on the nose. Minerals and a faint lactic note. The flavors pop! Licorice, vanilla, olives, cinnamon and sweet agave are just a few of the highlights. A nice mineralality as well. A stand out tequila.

The "green" profile carried through to the finish. Reminds me of Corrido blanco. Soft yet lasting finish. Edited: Raw agave and some alcohol on the nose with a little bell pepper. A little marshmallow, maybe a little ripe mango on the body and then the spice kicks in. Finish lingers mostly on the side of the tongue.

This tequila just blew my mind. Aroma is all about earth, minerals, and mushrooms. Once it enters your mouth it feels fantastic, has a little bit of sweetness, but the minerality is there to keep it real. The finish is a crowd pleaser. My first impression - I need to hurry up and buy several cases of this so I never run out of it.

Earthy, mineral nose- almost mushroomy- and very soft, slightly sweet flavor. Goes down easy with unusual aroma/taste profile. A nice addition to the market.

Amazing. I live the strong natural sweetness. The earthy taste from the deepwell water is pretty obvious especially when drinking next to the G4. I like this one even a bit more than the G4. It is bolder, but softer and the sweetness makes this one a pure joy. The anis isn't really present here, which comes out a lot stronger in the finish of the G4. But you can't have everything.

This tequila is the brother of the legendary G4! Very nosey, gives lots of aromas to those who love to "sniff" tequilas. Agave, peachy, minty, grassy, citrus aromas on the nose and peppery, pepperminty flavor burst turning into fruity with peach/melon notes ending in a nice vegetal finish.

A great highland Blanco with snappy earthy agave flavors. One of my favorites.

Really unbelievably true to the spirit, clean yet the right amount of heat and spice. Nice citrus notes. An awesome sipper. Really like this one from the best NOM on the planet.

Tasted at El Buho. Then tasted at Don Quinta Jose an hour later! It was a good day in Guadalajara. Aroma is not as complex as G4 blanco but still good. Taste is best: a bit sweet for a blanco but good. Finish is warm and long. This is a solid blanco to sip.

The aroma is full of cooked agave and wet earth. The taste is agave, minerals, and pepper. The mineral taste dominates the finish for me.

Floral, earth, agave, pepper, unique. Some saying mushroom, but the floral notes are what sets this apart from other blanco expressions for me.

The deep well water gives us a very earthy presence In both smell and taste . Still not G4 And slightly higher priced.

Love the mineral aroma and taste. Great sipping blanco... seems like a crime to mix this with anything. Maybe a couple Blancos match this, but I haven’t found one better.

I was blown away when I first tried G4. I just picked up a bottle of its stablemate and I’m even more enthusiastic. Great, clean, agave taste; depth, punch and all out deliciousness. This is a magnificent blanco! Update: Recently back from ten days in Puerto Vallarta, scoured the town but couldn’t find Terralta anywhere. Drank a lot of Siete Leguas, a lot of El Tesoro de Don Felipe - both really good blancos, but when I got home and had a glass of Terralta - my god, it reminded me what a superb juice this is. All that agave and the incredible mineral taste. Best blanco in the world, no doubt at all. I just upped my rating.

Interesting tequila. Upon first opening the bottle and pour there is not much of any aromas. After letting it sit in a stem less Riedel glass for a few moments, it really opened up. Aromas of vegetal minerals, raw agave, wet cement and earth. Taste of vanilla, licorice, cinnamon and cooked agave. A finish with citrus, jalapeño and maybe a bit of mushrooms. I noticed the lactic flavor or feel on the very end. This pairs well with milk chocolate, a dark chocolate blended with orange or baklava. This tequila is a keeper.
