Aroma: strong lime citrus, minerality, and light alcohol. Taste: Slightly sweet cooked agave with lime citrus across the palate. Finish: Smooth burst of black pepper, basil, lime, and cooked agave. Flavor lingers and numbs the tongue. Overall: An incredibly smooth and flavorful high-proof blanco that sets a high bar.

Striking and complex nose. Green olives stuffed with anchovies, ripe cheese, minerals, vegetal notes, and wet rocks. Juxtaposed with ripe fruit and abundant agave. Flavor: Green peppercorns, black pepper, smokey buttery honey. Meaty. Ripe cheese notes persist. A different umami/sweetness covers your tongue.

Lot 20 estate grown agaves. Brought this back from our family trip Easter 2022. I know it’s the same thing as Fortaleza in name, but its still cool that it says Los Abuelos on the label. Still Strength is one of my favorite blancos. This one is a bit sweeter and peppier than most. There’s also a softness on the tongue that tingles and warms but does not overwhelm. Overall GREAT! Maybe a skotch better than regular SS but not worth any price gouging. I saved this bottle for my 300th rating. Badge please Grover!! May 2022

Complex and fun to sip! Even though it’s a high proof, alcohol has a friendly-attack. Full of cooked agave, fruity (green apple, pear, pineapple), floral in your mouth with a mix of peppery & citrus notes, sweet mint also says hello! Just wonderful. Not as price friendly as Tapatio 110, but definitely up there.

Sampled this right out of the still at La Fortaleza! It was minutes old. What’s in the bottle is wonderful but it’s amazing how much it changes as it stabilizes. Without the luxury of stabilizing, coming right from the still is much more bright, crisp, and vibrant. It’s not better, it’s not worse, just very different. Bright pepper, oily agave, and citrus as always. Gracias Miros y Guillermo!

One of my favourite blancos. Complex and fun to drink. Smell: it's mostly fresh, floral and somehow woody too. taste: light sweet cooked agave remains forever, a bit licorice a bit of yerbabuena a bit of milky chocolate so many flavours going on. finish: it stays in your throat for a long time, nice warm sensation without being burny.

An amazing tequila. Strong alcohol and agave aroma. The kick ass 46 percent alcohol content does not overwhelm the flavor, there is a ton of agave present, along with a touch of dried fruit and a mineral thing going on as well. A great finish. I was very impressed by how different this tastes compared to the regular Los Abuelos blanco. This was a bit hard to find, and I will definitely want another bottle in the bar

Fortunate enough to taste this at the distillery. Outstanding! Even better when from the first distillation at 60%. Nothing better and certainly very strong.
