Nose: agave cooked / butter / pear / lemon / Taste: agave cooked sweet bomb!!! / cinnamon/ pepper / pineapple/ melon / orange peel/ lemon / spearmint/ cream soda Finish: so smooth despite a higher abv / this 48% abv is perfect to bring out all the flavors which are balanced and in harmony / the sweetness is the overwhelming and enjoyable part of this tequila all the way to a clean brisk watery finish that is delicious. This high proof plata has a great nose; not a lot of different aromas, but what’s there is very nice. The sweet cooked agave flavor is the 400 lbs. gorilla in the room, but he’s a decent chap who’s happy to share this amazing juice with you. This tequila is superb.

Plata 48 was a series 1 winner when Keith Bogart and I (Fuerte Fanatics) did a blind high proof competition. Nose of cooked agave with black pepper and citrus. The alcohol on the nose was not overpowering for a 48ABV tequila. Taste was very balanced with cooked agave upfront. Slight touch of floral and a nice finish with black pepper. A bit of heat but the high ABV does more to enhance the overall experience. This is a great representation of a high proof

Blind Tasting; The aroma is distinct minerality, floral, fresh, earthy, light ethyl, raspberry. I enjoyed the aroma, very inviting. When tasting I get: Strong hit of anise before heated alcohol pepperiness in throat, citrus, mineral, berry, and light vanilla Finish on the palate I get is agave, slight citrus, light alcohol, the berry finish is long with constant minerality that sticks the tongue.

Rated this blind as the top HP blanco of a 6-set tasting, really surprised by that. Very inviting fresh aroma of agave, grass, and citrus. More citrus, pepper, and brine on the flavor. Long finish.

A light fresh aroma of cooked agave, minerals, earth and a hint of citrus. With the addition of black pepper the flavor is consistent with the aroma. This is a creamy Blanco with a lot of spice and cooked agave. Well done

Lote 103 140721 Nose- surprisingly subdued, agave, ground black pepper, baking spice, grass, apple, and honey. Taste- more black pepper, seeded jalapeno, agave, anise, grass, minerals, and some alcohol. Medium mouth feel. Finish- loooooong and spicy. The alcohol heat lingers in a good way. Value- it hits a price tier that removes it from every day enjoyment but this is an outstanding liquid so... let's say it's a value if I'm flush lol

Agave, vegetal, and alcohol aromas. Taste has agave, pepper and some minerals. Long peppery finish. This a good high proof Blanco!

Aroma is nice. Full cooked agave, pepper, mine (like an old peppermint) little fruitiness like banana peel. Taste- completely different than expected; agave, vegetal, licorice (slight bitterness) loads of pepper on the back end that has a long finish

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

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%.

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!

That aroma! agave on full display. High proof so heat is there but definitely a treat. Another phenomenal product from NOM 1123. Picked it up for around $50

Tons of agave followed by black pepper & a sweet lactic funk smell I’ve yet to find in any other tequila. Taste is just as good. There’s a sweet lactic taste, followed by agave, citrus, slight pepper & some mint. A touch of alcohol on the back end. Overall one of my favorite blancos

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.

Re-evaluated since my video review. - 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 on the backend to the finish. I love this blanco, and maybe my favorite Cascahuin blanco

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.

As a fan of high-proof blancos, this one is amazing. Terrific nose. Vegetal, baked agave, grass. It has a wonderful lactic aroma. Crisp and clean. It really coats the palate. Agave, pepper and a hint of citrus. The high alcohol makes it linger, which is fine by me. Stunning.

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.

Crystal clear in the glass with thick legs that took a long time to develop. Aroma of agave, herbs, grass and alcohol (48%). Flavor of cooked agave, citrus and pepper. The finish is long and the alcohol doesn't overpower.
