Nose: Grassy agave, and a peculiar aroma that I always find in La Cofradía bottlings, something that makes me think of fruit pits. Palate: Surprisingly mellow for higher proof, initial hot burst of agave and subtle minerality, relatively short finish. I get that grassy fruit pit flavor, very subtle. Mixed up in a margarita and the higher proof absolutely shines. As a sipper, it’s decent, as a mixer, it’s rock solid.

Aroma and palate: cinnamon, agave, spice, mineral, citrus, and herbal. Maybe good for cocktails , but not sipping IMHO.

This is one of the best values in tequila. cinnamon, cooked agave, a touch of honey sweetness. A little earth but not as grassy as I expected. Minerality is there. Good enough to sip neat but fantastic as a mixer.

Tasty offering but for me it still has the Cofradia funk though it certainly is turned down a few notches. The marketing claim to fame of this product is that all agave used are sourced only from Los Valle. In this day and age of agave used being from all over the denomination and possibly outside or not Blue Weber that is the extra effort needed to be unique. Good agave presence with some initial acidity that turns into roasted sweetness that is natural. The sweetness carries over into the finish and leaves the tongue tingling from the 44% ABV.

$29.99 For 1L of this stuff is now a contender for my best value of 2019. Nose full of agave aromas, on the tongue plenty of Cooked Agave flavor, with hints of pepper and earth. Smooth finish with a nice amount of pepper left on the tongue.

Elvelo packs a lot of flavors and it's bold. I think it's better as a mixer than a sipper, but it can easily be sipped. It's a great value for a 1 liter bottle for about $29.99. Its a typical La Cofradia tequila with aroma and tasting notes like cinnamon, spice, mineral/grass, vegetal, light citrus and a musty nutmeg-like presence. Perfect for high quality drinks.

Quite a bit going on in smell and taste. $30 for a 1 liter higher proof. Very green, earthy, mint, pepper, anise… the finish is nice on this one.

Funky agave on the nose, the palate is sweet, cooked agave, some pepper towards the end, finishes with an alcohol note that numbs the tongue.

agave and cinnamon on the nose. agave forward on flavor, with cinnamon, vegetal giving way to pepper on the finish. La Cofradia funk is not as pronounced on this one as it is on others from 1137. It is picked up more at the very end of the finish. 1L bottle for 34.99. Screw cap

Agave, alcohol & pepper -- nose, mouth & finish. On the nose, a little strong on the alcohol for me. Then again, it *is* 89 proof. Solid choice for mixing. Better than much of what you might see/drink at your local taco bar. For me, on par with Tres Agaves, but behind El Mayor & Olmeca Altos, my top choice in this price bracket (both of which I'm happy to sip neat). (For comparison, not a fan of Espolon, at the same price bracket in NoVA.)

Cooked agave, citrus, pepper, vegetal, banana, minerals, very light green olive brine. Delightful neat or in a tequila forward-cocktail. Very rich and bold at 44.5 abv! The flavors really come through nicely in a margarita or Tequila/Topo Chico. Blind taste this with your favorites and it will hold its own. Haven’t found a better blanco under $50.

My kinda blanco. Big, bold flavor with a nice rich, oily, full mouth and a lasting finish. For $25~ for a liter, almost impossible to beat. Can easily be sipped, probably makes a fantastic margarita.
