Just realized while reviewing Don Vicente that I had not reviewed this one. What can I say, one of my favorites from El Pandillo. This is one I have given to multiple friends and family and everyone loves, some (like me) prefer it to G4. I tend to drink more the reposado or 110 XA but this is also very good.

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, citrus 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.

Rainy, mineral like odor with some sweetness but very light in agave. A hint of citrus. Flavor, strong mineral, straw and grassy. I prefer more agave forward tequilas but it’s a easy sipper.

A punch of wonderful agave right upfront! The finish for me is a dash of pepper and a hint of mint. I love sipping this tequila neat or using it for a traditional Paloma. What a great value for under $40.

Terralta has a light nose. Cooked agave, clean earthy minerality, butter and pepper. Pepper on the initial, but no single note overwhelms. The mouthfeel is buttery and smooth and plenty of heat. Cooked agave, clean earthy minerality, Jalapeño and pepper. It all carries over in a medium finish. I just love the Jalapeño. Terralta's rating is boosted by its tremendous value.

Love the complex flavors in this. Strong vegetal and earthy tones and each so reveals additional flavors.

This tequila is very sweet, earthy, natural, and filled with minerals - it almost reminds me of potting soil (in a good way). I’ve heard people describe it as tasting like mushrooms which is another good way to put it. The well water is definitely making a difference here compared to the rainwater I’m used to from El Pandillo. Overall, this is a very unique blanco compared to others I’ve tried. I get more fruity/briney notes from other NOM 1579 blancos, and I like them a bit more than what I’m picking up here. However, if you prefer a more earthy and “grounded” flavor profile, it doesn’t get much better than this.

Cool and mineral on the nose. Smooth light citrus and melon on the palate with just enough bite on the finish. Delicious!

Very nice blonco Smell of loads of agave, minerals, earthiness(light dirt), root vegetable The taste is similar with agave and minerals up front. Not as much mineral taste like the 110 loads of pepper. A slight vanilla Ed’s in the middle. Very good

Wow wow and wow! Felipe and El Pandillo. Really remarkable Tequila. For anybody that likes to drink this is something to go for it. I can see this Tequila being THE Tequila of aficionados and connoisseurs. It’s insane. The aromas made me feel like walking right on the side of a river in the forest. It’s rain water, spring water, it’s wet river rocks, wet leaves, Also has tons of olives, some white chocolate, natural sugar, mezcal aromas (smoke and rustic clay), roasted agaves. The flavours are just like drinking the most fresh water you could have after doing exercise. That sensation in your mouth of fresh water, that just makes you want to drink more. It has really nice viscosity -not too creamy just right- agave, anise, mint.... I could go on and on.... Just go and drink it! It is an elixir!

Aroma Notes: earth/wet soil & very mineral. Vegetal and spicy herbs (jalapeño/bell pepper/black pepper) Light notes of citrus and tropical fruits Flavors: Cooked agave, mineral/light metallic entrance, then the wow factor comes in….. ready? Great balance of peppery notes, fruits (pineapple/green apple/pear), spices (anise/spearmint) & tamarind.

This is just so good! Nice aroma of agave, rainwater and minerals. So much going on with the flavor: agave, butter, anise, pepper, it’s complex and velvety. Wonderful mouthefeeel. The finish stays around for a long time and makes me want more! This is a new favorite for me!
