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. Otra gracias a G&S!

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...

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

The nose is pleasant and not alcohol forward. The flavor seems to explode in your mouth and is full of agave and earth. Received this as a gift and it would be appreciated by anyone that enjoys a delicious tequila. This tequila is bold enough to enjoy with a cigar.

Update: I came back to this bottle after a few weeks and tried it again fresh. I like it better this time around and even more with a few drops of water. The flavors develop a bit more for me with a touch of water and this ended up being a pleasant sipper. Has that characteristic aroma of silly putty and meaty flavor that I find among spirits from NOM 1146. Very desirable to some but just not my preference. My wife described the aroma as "savory grilled pineapple" and I think that might be a more accurate description than my note above Nevertheless, this is a high-quality spirit worthy of trying out.
