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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

The mineraliry comes from the rainwater that El Pandillo collects, not only for the juice, but the cleaning of the operation of this eco-friendly distillery. Felipe does it again with this brand and expression. Raw and cooked agave with green beans, olives, pepper and asparagus on the nose and palate. Another home run.

Love the nose on this one, earthy and agave. Taste is much like the nose with a little warmth. Finish is very pleasing. Terralta is a very fitting name for this brand made with the deep well water from around the area. This water makes the base juice much different than the other two brands made from the same. Love it!

On it's own, this is an excellent blanco. We tried it side by side with the 110 proof, and I much preferred the slightly bolder flavors and aromas of the higher proof blanco.

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 well water adds an earthiness and minerality to the taste. Very interesting. Purchased in Mexíco so the price is right.
