Nice nose filled with Agave. A good citrus smell. I get a hint of minerals and a touch of alcohol. The taste is quite pleasant but does come with a strong alcohol finish. For taste I get agave, minerals pepper and alcohol. Even with the strong alcohol presence this is a good HP. For me, a high proof done well enhances the flavor without extra alcohol burn. This should be the ultimate goal of a high proof in my opinion. I can easily recommend this one but be prepared for the alcohol forward bite.

Great high proof, the water mixture makes it taste slightly different than G4, still agave forward, great minerality, pepper and balanced heat

Aroma of cooked agave, Jalapeño, and minty citrus. Flavor pretty much the same with the high proof pushing the flavors long into the finish. An excellent high proif expression and experience.

Edited: This tequila needs time to breath. Second tasting a few weeks after opening. More agave on the nose and tasting. The alcohol has cooled just enough to let the other flavors come through and shine. Still get a lot of green on the nose. Earth, minerals and agave. Bumped it up a few extra points. I like this better than the 40%. Aroma: green and vegetal hit right off the bat. Alcohol and earthy minerality follows. Flavor: intense with a lot of heat that overpowers the other flavors. Agave is a little lost for me. I get a good amount of minerality, green and a hint of cinnamon and baking spice. Lemon zest or grapefruit? Finish: initially pretty intense but fades nicely. Tingly. Leaves a dry bitterness with hints of mineral and wet stone. Overall: my initial thought is the extra proof overwhelms the other flavors a little too much instead of accentuating them. I’m missing a strong agave flavor. It’s a nice tequila and I pick up familiar flavors characteristic of El Pandillo. Found this for $39 in the Seattle area so extra points for value.

Nose: Ethanol hits me first but then the agave dwarfs it. Very clear citrus. Palate: Agave, and an absolutely gorgeous sweetness. Very rounded, spicy. Tons of cooked agave and white pepper. Noticeable minerals in this one, it’s definitely a different tequila from G4, there is some overlap but it’s noticeably sweeter. Verdict: Excellent high proof blanco. Absolutely worth getting, especially if you’re a fan of 1579.

Initial nasal impact is a definite prickle as expected. Earth, mineral, citrus and agave on the aroma. Oily mouthfeel with generous alcohol. The cooked agave explodes as soon as it hits the tongue. Mineral, fresh jalapeno, grapefruit follow. Some jack fruit on the retro nasal. Great warmth in the mouth lingers on a long finish. An amazing HP blanco. The deep well water at El Pandillo really comes through with this blanco.

Beautifully clear, with tears very slow to descend. Agave and ethanol up front on the nose with a vegetal agave and hot pepper on the palate. Long peppery finish with some grass in there somewhere towards the end. This was a blind tasting and another winner from Felipe at 1579!

this is my favorite 110 on earth at this time. It's also my favorite tequila from NOM 1579 because of the deep well water, which gives off a lot more minerals and presence in my opinion. It's very refreshing, bold and complicated. I think this is the 'connoisseurs' blanco from Nom 1579

Aroma : Lots of cooked agave, some minerals, and green apple. No strong alcohol notes. Taste : Thick and oily and with crisp agave. There's a small degree of minerality here as well, but there is also olive and cinnamon. Finish : Long and somewhat alcohol numbing with plenty of cooked agave lingering for a while after. Normally I would think this level of alcohol would be a distraction from the quality, but it ends up complimenting it considering the simplicity, but full flavor of all the notes.

At 110 proof it’s a little too aggressive on the nose and the finish but the body of this is incredible! Toasted nut and grilled pineapple, really unique and sharp flavours considering the presence of alcohol. Probably going to make a great cocktail if this ever becomes available en mass in my market.

Nose: Big rich, ripe sweet Tahona agave blast. Caramel, dry minerals, cardamom and white pepper, with light cinnamon. The 55% alcohol content is in no way overbearing. Flavors: This is a WOW! Nice viscous mouth feel with caramelized agave and notes of olives, that builds to a crescendo with explosive white pepper, anise, citrus and baking spices. The agave hangs right in there. The whole experience is one of fully engaging all gustatory and olfactory senses. Finish: The finish has a tough act to follow... And I must admit, that the overproof 110 has made its presence known, with numbed lips, tongue and front palate.

Terralta Blanco 110P This HP Blanco has an excellent bright nose. The nose is full of citrus, green apple and fresh agave. There is a sweet smell to offset the alcohol vapors that come with HPs. The taste is clean and the agave is strong. There is a smooth long finish that is still full of taste. I enjoyed this tequila neat but it would be excellent in cocktails because the taste would punch through any sweet that might be added. Salud!

Wow! Agave and mineral nose, delicious slightly sweet agave flavor, and the high proof hits you in the finish.

Tons of grassy notes, minerality, spice notes and pepper notes that last a long time. Be careful with the proof on this one, because I could sip this all night, but that would be dangerous.

Very neutral nose. Not too sweet or vegetal. Light citrus. Flavor is an agave bomb. Butterscotch and agave in a clean burst and then the high proof comes through but is pleasant as it doesn’t linger.

Aroma: definitely getting some alcohol in addition to agave. I let it sit for a few minutes in the glass to let it open up a bit. After that I got some basil and mint. I had to really sit there and process the aromas, but they’re definitely present. Taste: wow, what a smorgasbord of flavors! Agave, anise, basil, mint, pepper, citrus. It’s buttery and oily as well. Some citrus on the back end. Finish: nice long finish, extra peppery. Overall: love it, one of if not the best high proofs I’ve tasted.

Compared lot #2: LT0002B55 bottled on 06/10/2017 with lot #3: LT0003B55 bottled on 01/09/2020. Points recorded is for lot #2. Had to wait 1 hour after pouring to taste these high proof tequilas so they could oxygenate and open up properly, otherwise the ethanol covers up most aromas. Lot #2: Aroma: intense sweet cooked agave! White jasmine flowers, wet earth, minerals, minty, slightly citrus, it has a mix of natural tutti frutti, intense resinous sweetness, elegant and pleasant. It has a sensation similar to a grapefruit, a mixture of sweet, sour & citrus and very well balanced. Palate: sweet, citrus, slightly sour & astringent that is needed to balance the other flavors, minty sensation keeps the whole fresh. All the different aromas mentioned I can smell them through retronasal. Finish is extremely long, the intense sweet agave, earthy notes, minty sensation and maybe even the floral notes are in there although very subtle, persists. Wow! It is very similar overall to the Terralta blanco 40% abv. Mexican market lot #1: LT0001BN40 bottled on 15/08/2017, which was bottled less than 2 months apart from this high proof lot. The high proof is slightly less sweet both on the nose and on the palate. Lot #3: 85 points. This lot compared to lot #2 is more herbal, less sweet both on the nose and palate but the finish is almost identical.
