Lote 10 from new bottling. El Tesoro is very balanced and I think can be liked by most people, in Mexico it feels expensive vs. other (better imo) offerings but in the US it’s a good value.

Nose: Agave and fruity entrance. . Mango, citrus, anise, minerals and vanilla-ginger-spicy goodness. A hint of lactic. A floral presence. This has an “ebullient” bouquet. Flavor: Oily agave flavor with hints of cinnamon and spice. Rounded fruit notes. Perfect dose of pepper for balance. A good all purpose blanco.

I smell the agave, minerals and floral notes. It’s soft. I taste naturally sweet agave and white pepper along with some anise. The finish is nice and clean but short. Overall it’s a well made tequila that’s slightly on the sweet side.

As solid as they come, agave to be found around every corner and the price is tonight to beat. This is one of those reference products that new producers should taste before they decide on their profile....it’s a classic.

This is filled with a nose of sweet cooked agave, light anise, very light vanilla, definite citrus, and definite black pepper. On taste- you get the citrus and the delicious sweet cooked agave, grass, citrus and black pepper. This is a really solid tequila.

Aroma : Cooked agave, citrus, and some pear and pineapple notes. Also some degree of black pepper and earthy, grassy notes, but not necessarily mineral notes. Taste : Cooked agave and black pepper spiciness. Some earthy, grass notes. Light celery, citrus, and medium oils. I actually got a little bit of vanilla from this which is an interesting sight for a blanco, but it doesn't take away from the experience. Finish : Short to medium length with more spice and agave. To a lesser extent some greener, vegetal notes from before. This Blanco has some really good spice that goes well with the other flavors. I can find this for $36.99 USD so there's a lot of value as well.

Free tasting at local liquor store, county/gov operated. Aroma: cooked agave, pepper, oak, green olives, and honey-vanilla. Flavor: cooked agave, pepper, greens, honey-vanilla. Nice but short finish, barely no after taste.

Nose = Nice pop of sweet agave. No heat on the nose either, very even keel, subtle almost. Super pleasant. Taste = Oh yes. Agave forward, citrus, some pepper. Very well balanced. Finish = Nice and long. Warm but not aggressive. Vanilla at the end with a bit of sweetness. For 44$ @ Old Town Tequila it’s solid value. Easily a sipper and would mix well. Would recommend to a friend

Man do I like this! Full agave and some tartness to this Lot ETNP-B-001. Not a sweet product in the slightest I can see this being offputting to some drinkers. Stone ground, wood vat fermented, copper pot distilled and all El Tesoro de Don Felipe.

Nose - great cooked agave nose, almost a smoky agave. I like this part of El Tesoro. Palate - nice highland agave - not as sweet as some, but the cooked agave and pepper are here. Good. Finish - really nice finish. Not too long, just the right amount of pepper, less agave on the end, but still very good. Overall I really like El Tesoro. Tastes very, I guess, pure. Great agave and a nice, peppery smoky change from something like a NOM 1579 sweet agave. Very good.

I’d like to start by saying I love the bottle and the very tasteful stone wheel statue as part of the cork, it’s great. The juice itself is very good for a blanco. It’s interesting in that it tastes almost of olive while still staying true to the 100% agave flavors.

The aroma is gentle and appealing, natural agave and natural greens. It’s smells fresh and comfortable. Dry mint with dash of ocean essence, nice anise pinch, small kick of nice alcohol, that doesn’t make you go away but all the opposite. The taste is just it’s aroma, fresh, of peppermint. It warms the mouth perfectly and stays in your palate with great body and respecting the same note, tone and volume. It is a great tequila to enjoy at the table with family and people that are worth your time. I liked it and it’s a tequila that is for sure a must have in your collection. If you can afford it, it is easy a daily sipper.

Wonderful agave on the nose. Semi creamy mouthfeel with medium to high heat on the pepper and plenty of agave flavor goodness. Long pepper finish. For me this is not a sipper, but has the robust flavor needed to carry through in a fantastic margarita!

Sweet, soft, caramelized cooked agave is everywhere on the nose along with citrus and peppery notes. Perfect level of natural sweetness on the palate; lots of agave as well as hints of grass, earth, and green bell peppers. Just a touch of heat on a long, gentle finish. In terms of flavors, there’s nothing too crazy going on here. However, this is still a fantastic representation of an agave-forward, high-quality blanco. Given it’s fairly easy to find, I think it’s a perfect go-to choice for both beginners as well as experienced sippers. Highly recommend!

This Blanco is so good. Rich and creamy. The finish is fantastic and last for a long time. The nose is sweet, grassy, floral agave. The palate is all cooked agave with some sweet and pepper. What a spectacular pour.

Felt like I stole it at only $29 a bottle. Bought every bottle they had. Carlos Camerena is a Wizard

Light aroma of cooked agave that is more earthy and grounded in agave. Easy body with a lot of green earthy waves that develop into the farmland tastes of fresh sunlight and cut agave. Some subtle black pepper notes but still a bit of lime citrus is the background. What a finish that is smooth but still warming with a bit of heat to warm the mouth but not the chest.
