Nose: You need to give this some breathing time to coax out the bouquet. Warm, round agave aromas. Bright spices and peppery earthiness. Both lemon and orange citrus notes. Maybe melon or mango. Subtle herbal scent of dill and thyme. Flavor: Medium viscosity with a sweet and punchy agave/pepper kick off. The spices and citrus follow the nose, with the addition of silky salted caramel and anise. The flavors are much more dynamic than the aromas.

Tequileno Blanco I smell clean agave and sweet minerals. I taste a punch of sweet agave and pepper. There is a nice medium finish. This review is too simple for such a tasty tequila! Go buy one and let me know what you think.

Spicy, herbal, and a little too hot for my personal preference when sipping neat. Give it a few minutes to breathe and the alcohol dissipates lending a more approachable softness. Underripe banana and citrus peel up front with a lasting sweetness on the finish.

Aroma: herbal, sweet cooked agave, melon, light smoky, oak, fruits, anise. Palate; sweet cooked agave, grass, citrus, anise, mint, oak, alcohol. Finish medium and alcohol at the end in upper palate and back of tongue.

Aromas start off with a little bit of alcohol, its grassy, herbal, nice sweet cooked agave, some fruit (melon), a hint of anise, some pepper, spice, light smoke, floral, and mint. I don't usually like blanco rested in wood, but this is an exception. The taste followed through, as it was smooth and soft, with anise, pepper, light fruit, citrus, cooked agave and minerals. There was a little bit of heat on the back end. A real solid blanco.

Really great off the nose and only gets better as it goes! Nothing but roasted agave and a little bubble gum on the ending, this might be a new house pour.

Cinnamon, floral, white pepper aromas. Natural sweetness and minerality with a short finish. Tasty, just wish it was more viscous.

Cinnamon, cooked agave, mineral and floral aromas. Tastes slightly sweet, a little bit vanilla from the month it spent resting in oak. Feels thick and oily in the mouth. Finish is super clean but doesn’t last very long. (I think that's actually a good thing for most people.) Overall a solid product.

El tequileño is always guaranteed, great blanco on the nose agave with sweet notes, little alcohol which is expected for a blanco. on the palate is thick, earthy, pleasant burn with lots of agave aftertaste

Rated blind alongside the old El Tequileño Platino. Big citrus bomb on the nose (grapefruit + lime) and some minerality, spice, and pepper are also coming through. I find this more agave-forward than the old version, but the sweet vanilla notes from the barrel rest aren’t as prominent. The profile reminds me of Patrón except it’s more complex and it tastes less diluted. I still wish this had a bit more body and strength, but it’s a very enjoyable sipper overall.

I will need to revisit this one. cooked agave on the nose and pallet along with pepper and little bit of heat. Tried it again and I can't get onboard with this one. It's an okay sipper but don't think it'll make regular rotation. Not a bad price around $40

Spicy tequila with great notes of mineral and agave on the nose - easy sipping blanco with unique spice notes!

took a while to open up,, nose is very delicate ethanol is very light with mild sweet agave and over ripen lemon and un burned white sage. flavor is alot better, beautiful viscosity and mouth coat. brine and pepper getting a silky-smooth note of vanilla and cinnamon, and roasted peanut shells. the finish is the best part, lingering licorice and herbaceous sage and peppercorn. honestly I expected alot more. will revisit. came back to this Thanksgiving noon because I wasn't good with the first rating.. much better nose 2nd time around.

A spearmint forward blanco that is a value priced sipper. Didnt enjoy this at first, but it grew on me. It probably will not make it part of my rotation, but I would not shy away from sipping or mixing this o a occasion. Nose: Opens up with green agave, spearmint and pepper. A bit of bitter citrus-orange peel and anise. Palste: Light with a mild oily, semi-sweet mouthfeel. A slight bit of heat with an awkward astringent bite. Agave, spearmint and pepper up front. Hints of cinnamon, minerality, and anise on the mid palate. The back end bring out vanilla and some alcohol. Fnish: Warm and medium in length. At $49-$45, this is a decent sipper if you don't mind the spearmint forward presentation.

Feels good to be getting back to reviewing. I caught COVID and my palate and nose were gone, I didn’t get to enjoy a proper tequila in months, but I’m back now! Aroma: Soft agave, ethanol, citrus, baking spices and i think a hint of cinnamon. Palate: Sharp hit of agave, the bright citrus on the nose comes right through, not quite orange, not quite lime, but something in between. The ethanol is very mild. There’s a lingering spice note, if you made me call it, I’d say cinnamon but that’s almost not quite right, but close enough. Verdict: Buy it. I’ve had the mixto Tequileno Blanco, and this is clearly leagues beyond that. A highly competent sipping blanco, I personally would not put this in a cocktail. It’s a little pricy in the $50 range, I’d recommend the half size if possible. I picked up the 375ml blanco + repo combo at Total Wine and I believe Old Town has it as well, would definitely recommend that if you can.

I didnt particularly enjoy this neat, but over ice it opened up a bit more for me. Good agave taste, but wont become a staple.

A bright, citrus/agave dominant blanco. Drinks clean and isn’t overly sweet at all. Really want to try some cocktails with this.
