The nose is just pure sweet agave, thick oily and buttery feel with a natural sweetness. Finishes with a sweet pear like sweetness. A favorite. Unfortunately cannot find in my parts so a bit pricey with shipping for me.

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, this is good. The aroma is good with agave, minerals, especially iron, and a grated cheese-like scent. The taste is intense! Its one of those tequilas that tastes like the process. Agave, pepper, spicy, with a nice long finish. I found flavors in this bottle that can only be found in a true artisanal tequila. You almost need two tastings to get the full effect. Love it.

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.

Nice cooked agave on the nose, honeysuckle. Flavour is fairly muted but enjoyable. Finish is fairly long with some heat after toasted agave notes.

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, as well as herbal notes of freshly cut grass and a suggestion of dill weed. 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!
