Aroma: Beautiful raw and cooked agave. Some sweet floral notes as well. Taste: Nice mouthfeel, more agave, white pepper, some minerals, eucalyptus. Finish: medium with nice heat and that herbal eucalyptus thing hanging around. This is a really good one and well worth the bump in price over the other blancos from this wonderful distillery!

At 84 proof, this is not hot! In fact, it’s so good, you’ll kick yourself for not but a second bottle! Really!!

Excellence! ... transparent juice filled with cooked agave, mint, citrus, alcohol 42%, herbals, cardamom, walnut, butter and minerals. Easy to sip, can enjoy this all night. All natural !!! IMHO one of the three best blancos I’ve had up to 4/2021

Aroma : Green olive-parmesan cheese, lactic combo that reminds me of Fortaleza Blanco Still Strength. Minerals, and ripe cooked agave are abundant too. Taste : The aromas carry through here with smaller emphasis on the lactic quality. There's still plenty of cooked agave, along with some black peppery spice and notes of cinnamon and light fruit. Finish : Carries more of the fruit from the initial taste along with more minerals. The finish is moderately long, and sweeter than the initial spiciness would indicate. Another great expression from Cascahuín. I'm curious to see what some extra % abv would look like with the lactic quality on this one.

Cascahuín Tahona Blanco - NOM1123 This 84 proof lowlands Tahona tequila is made in the traditional way. Deep well water, stone/brick oven, Tahona crushed and copper pot stills. It shows! The nose is wonderful. It’s fresh agave, lime, minerals, mint, cut grass and sea air. I taste cooked agave, citrus, oysters and white pepper. The 84 proof makes the finish linger. It’s excellent. This is a must have sipper. ¡Salud! AustinTequilaConnoisseurs

This literally pushes every button for me in smell, flavor and finish. Roast agave, natural sweetness and a nice protracted finish. Hope to see this exported somtime soon.

This is an amazing blanco. The aroma is herbal and grassy with the smell of fresh agave. It’s taste is full of agave, minerals, and a little citrus. The mouthfeel is thick and full and just feels great on the palate. The finish is long lasting with that fresh agave lingering for a significant amount of time with just a hint of pepper. There is no alcohol burn whatsoever and no overwhelming spiciness. Love this blanco!

Wow. Probably the best blanco I’ve ever tasted. This is what it’s all about! Minerality, citrus, mature agave, and just and old school funk that you only get by taking your time. Bravo to the Rosales family. A must buy!

Kind of underwhelms off the nose but delivers in spades on the taste, this tequila is phenomenal! Ripe fruit in spades in the finish, reminds me of making a pechuga.

Nose: Extremely sweet, rich baked agave. Ripe Italian cheese, flinty minerals, and an umami/meaty aroma. Some lactic/barnyard aromas (not a negative - just another bonus layer to add to the interest). As it opens up slightly, a minty undercurrent emerges with anise, as well as herbal notes of freshly cut grass and a suggestion of dill weed. Robust citrus lends a fresh note. Flavors: The flavors come in with more punch than the nosing would indicate. Huge caramelized agave presence, a black and white pepper kick, and cinnamon red hots. There is a vague olive-like note. Oily. It finishes with a hint licorice, vanilla cream and pepper. A nice artisanal tequila.

Cooked agave and slightly lactic aroma (which I like!), with a hint of green pepper. Tasty and naturally sweet in the mouth, with a pleasant green pepper finish. Not complicated, but balanced and enjoyable at 42% abv. An exciting new tahona product!

Has a fun lactic/cheesy thing going on in addition to agave, mushroom, earth and cinnamon aromas. Aroma also shifts and changes in the glass over time as it opens up. Flavor is naturally sweet cooked agave and some minerals. Finish is short and clean, the minerals are pronounced as the agave sweetness fades. Quite enjoyable and easy to drink. The lactic/cheese aroma is there because the cooked agave spent a good amount of time exposed to air before they the were added to the fermentation tank. I love this because it's a sign of a truly natural process, and one that can only be achieved through a slow artisanal process. Anyone who thinks that all tequila is the same needs to try this one. I’m also thrilled to see that they installed a tahona and continue to embrace old school production methods at the Cascahuín distillery. Bravo #cascahuinando!

Cascahuin tahona: nose ; strong pineapple and agave. This has such a rich, thick , oily mouthfeel that is complex with a slight lactic, cheese, creamy mouthfeel that comes out as the long finish takes its time. Very unique in their line, wonderful!

A complex blanco with aromas of cooked agave, celery salt, pepper, vanilla, and liquorice. Taste is fruity with some consistency with the aroma: celery, liquorice, and slightly salty. Medium length finish. Paid $125 Cnd. I quite like this tequila, but for the price it's hard to recommend over the standard blanco, or the Plata 48. Price aside, highly recommended.

I tried David Suro’s Siembra Valles expression made at Cascahuin and was mesmerized, so my expectations on this one where very high - and they where met. Although the agave is not that much in your face on the nose as the Siembra Valles, the taste is maybe if not the best I‘ve ever tasted. Sel de fleur sweetness like the one from caramel salted icecream, olive brine, minerals, agave, gras... Almost no typical baking spices, the finish is maybe the most elegant I‘ve ever had.... WOW

Same familiar Cascahuin nose but on steroids. The mid palate explosion of agave/minerals/citrus is addictive with a nice medium long finish. A great blanco, will buy more...

I’m new to this brand. Looks crystal clear, leaves long legs around my snifter glass, tear drops throughout the pour. Nose feels complex, I get quite a few notes. Sharp note of cooked agave, brine/salt, olives, earth, ripening melon, yeast. Taste starts with a mineral spicy flavor followed spearmint, tobacco sweetness and agave. Finish is medium, mildly peppery, sweet and mineral, dry. Light metallic/copper aftertaste. Medium-bodied. I’m glad I took the plunge on this one, very enjoyable, will buy again. Nice one to start a Friday night.
