Nice even tears and legs. Cooked agave on the nose with an interesting lactic quality there. The taste is agave dominant with a hint of cinnamon and pepper. Medium peppery cinnamon finish with a nice touch of alcohol heat. I tasted this one blind and it was a real treat!

Oven roasted agave feels the air when you open the bottle. Aromas of cooked agave, lime, herbal, cardamom, walnut, coffee, honey, vegetal, pepper, anise, mineral, smoke. Palate is full of heat in a good way with sweet agave, alcohol, mint, minerals, and green banana. Finish is subdue and sweet that makes you want more. This is addictive !

Aroma : Vegetal, herbal, and grassy aroma packed with cooked agave. There is also some underlying pepper and licorice. Taste : Agave, black pepper, vanilla, mint, and citrus notes. Lightly sweet and oily in the mouth. Finish : Warm and peppery with plenty of residual cooked agave, and light spice. I'll need to keep my eye out for more Cascahuín. This is only the 2nd bottle I've tried and both are (in my opinion) better than a fair amount of the NOM 1579 tequilas.

A lot of sweet cooked agave on the nose with some slight vanilla cream, light pepper, spice, a pinch of smoke, definite alcohol, and anise. Vegetable and slight citrus. Taste is some heat, anise, sweet agave, vegative, minerally, with a pinch of ftuit. Heat onth the backend to the finish.

Cascahuín Plata 48% This 96 proof lowlands tequila has a great nose of strong fresh agave, herbs, light citrus, muted white pepper and alcohol. I taste mint, cooked agave, pepper and alcohol. The finish is full of bright agave and a pleasant warm tequila hug. This blanco is worth your money. I’m glad to see higher proof tequilas become more common. !Salud! AustinTequilaConnoisseurs

Served in a Stölzle mezcal nosing glass. Nose is massive, fresh agave and subtle notes of licorice, the 48% comes through with presence. Quick hit of pepper, transitions into cooked agave. The high abv is nuanced, not overwhelming as the nose would suggest it might be and the heat rides through the mouth, over the tongue and sits on the back of your throat for what feels like ages. It’s a top 3 blanco, hands down.

Right up my alley, tons of agave off the nose and a vanilla-wasabi thing going on that makes me want to smash the whole bottle in one sitting. Stay tuned for a follow up rating when I make some cocktails.

Vista: A glint of silver. Very slow thick tears. Nose: Big bold aroma. Baked agave, hints of herbs, olives, licorice, cinnamon and fresh cut grass. Ripe vibrant fruit note and a touch of pungency. Some Cascahuín signature barn funk. There is alcohol here, but it is merely the vehicle delivering the goods. Palate: Great! Banana/vanilla, agave, pepper and grapefruit peel. Viscous and natural agave sweetness. Finishes in a lingering fashion with warming heat, significant pepper, some alcohol and spices.

The aroma had loads of agave with significant notes of citrus along with some grass. Flavor is packed with agave and some grapefruit along with a hint of pepper. There is also some sweetness from cooked agave at the front of the palate Flavor is long lasting with lingering sweetness from the agave and citrus. It does not taste like a high proof blanco. I really enjoyed this blanco, it’s one of the best I’ve had.

A very aromatic tequila, this higher proof blanco really shines in the aroma and taste department. Rich roast agave notes on the nose lead to a nice naturally sweet taste in the mouth along with a big alcohol punch that fades to slight bitterness. Not available in the US.

Really nice aroma. The agave is there but it’s soft and not over powering.. The initial flavor is more subtle than I expected but I loved the finish and the peppery heat that lingered. Excellent blanco...will enjoy the rest of this bottle.

very boozy, but in a good way. Tasty clean finish. Would definitely get the job done effectively

The Cascahuín 48 Plata is very rich and full of terroir. Beautifully balanced and elegant in style, much like the 80 proof, but bearing more depth and concentrated agave character. This is the epitome of Los Altos Tequila, uncompromised and without excess manipulation. If you see this in on the shelf, considering stocking up unless you want to leave some for us. High proof Tequila is certainly becoming harder to acquire.

Another winner from Cascahuin, balanced between citrus, spice, cooked agave with a touch of floral. Beauty

Cascahuin plata 48: Alexis (a wonderful guide at the distillery) explained how the cement tanks and the added agave fibers to the fermentation tanks completely changed the profile. This is way different than the regular blanco. It is MUCH sweeter and so full of agave it’s just beautiful.

Licorice is definitely the aroma and pronounced flavor upon opening before breathing. Agave and mineral is present. For a 48%, burn is undiscernable from a 40%.

Lactic nose. Lots of agave and pepper on the palate. More earthy and vegetal on the finish. Nice sipper.

For a high proof tequila the alcohol is not so noticeable in the taste. Agave, pepper and mineral flavors make this a must have sipper.

Alcohol nose. Sting on the tongue. Mostly enjoyable. Peppery
