Aroma : Sweet cooked agave, grass, mint, and cinnamon. After the glass opens up a bit, you get even stronger grassy, vegetal notes. Taste : Sweet and hot (in a good way) profile full of cooked agave, vegetal notes, and cinnamon. The oily, full texture is really special and provides a dynamic medium to provide those sweet and hot flavors in a satisfying way. Finish : Long and fruity with a little heat, but isn't distracting from the initial taste. It's 2020 and this bottle (limited supply from what I hear, unless that changed) came out a while ago, so I would stock up if you can find it.

Solid bordering on excellent. I really appreciate the extra ABV bringing big flavors, with a strong agave punch. The short finish and relatively high price tag are the only things holding this back for me.

Absolutely delicious sharp sweetness from overripened agaves. Very well produced, from startto finish. Cinnamon, baking spice earthy, a little bit of citrus, some anise on the nose and taste. Great stuff without a doubt.

I’m drinking this in a restaurant so my notes might not be a deep as usual. The nose is great. Fresh agave, bright citrus (lime), white pepper and brine. I taste sweet cooked agave, olives & minerals. The finish is perfect for a higher proof tequila. I paid $21 for 1.5oz and I’d do it again. Salud! AustinTequilaConnoisseurs

Deceptive nose, I get a lot of vegetal and nutmeg but not overwhelming agave. Completely different story in my mouth, this is so clean and pure agave, reminds me of tasting ordinario straight out of the tank! Really great juice, lovely aftertaste fades slowly.

Nose is big and bold, I love it. Agave, citrus, a pinch of cinnamon and wet grass after rain. Really round and full mouthfeel. Cooked agave, I get slight olive notes that round into pepper at the end. Long and complex finish that keeps me thinking about the flavors dancing in the back of my throat.

Nose: Olives and brininess. Nice fruity agave, cinnamon and lite pepper. Flavor: Very viscous. Honey graham flavors. Rich sweetness meets smokey herbal notes, and they are harmonious.

Aroma: hints of pepper, orange blossom and a bit of brininess. Definitely mellows as it sits for a bit. Flavor: Lots of cinnamon and orange. Incredibly smooth and flavorful. Finish: Nice and smooth. Expected it to be hotter for high proof but really solid.

This is an interesting one...aroma is heavy with agave and specifically cooked agave. The sweetness of the cooking is very evident. Incredibly complex flavor profile that includes agave, mint-y spice and raw vegetables. Over time, all these flavors intermingle to create a really nice flavor with a medium-long finish. Although it's hard to pinpoint exactly, the 3 years in stainless definitely has a pretty big impact. This is a really good, distinctive tequila. But, it's double the price of blancos that I truly love (Fortaleza, Siete Leguas, Suerte) and is uncharacteristic of what I would call a "classic" blanco. Nice as a treat but it won't become a standard for me. 6/29/2017

Really well structured. Not often that the nose, body, and finish all follow the same profile. Extremely floral but not too bright, likely due to 3 years of aging.

Great mint, cinnamon aroma, silky mouthfeel and lingering finish. Red hot flavor with cooked agave finish. A delight!

Wow. This is a special treat. This stuff is really good. Cinnamon, cooked agave, and an elegant finish. After it opens up I get a creamy celery aroma. Although it's a Blanco, it rested for 3 years in a stainless steel tank. Well done.

First blanco released in the Fuenteseca line, this was only available at K&L for a very short time before selling out. This has been restocked at K&L and has shown up online @ Old Town Tequila. This was distilled from agave from a single field to demonstrate terrior and has been sitting in stainless steel for 3 years according to K&L. The nose is all caramelized agave and fruit and sipping this is the equal of chewing on roasted agave without being sweet or cloying. Great viscosity and mouth feel but never thick or syrupy. Some alcohol is evident from the higher proof and the finish fades to roast agave and some citrus notes. Find it if you can...

I’m not sure if I’ve ever nosed a tequila that represents cooked agave as well. Hot on the palette but really balanced with a robust mouth feel. A real gem.

The blanco that all others are judged against. Pepper, cinnamon spice & most importantly agave. If you can find it locally don’t pass it up. Life is too short

This reminds me of a dirty martini. This has a richness to it, that’s not necessarily sweetness. On the nose, green olive and agave with a hint of smoke. The fruitiness along with the agave and olive brininess work well together in a complex harmony. The viscosity fills the mouth slowly and the higher abv really delivers the flavors with a long lasting finish. Beautiful tequila!

Muy agradable. Surprised on how much cooked agave I got in the aroma. Definitely a big punch of heat towards the end that sticks around a while
