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!

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!

My GF who is NOT a tequila sipper LOVES the Cascahuin Tahona. This is her benchmark and any and all tequilas I get her to try she compares to this and says they’re not as good. Lol

An amazing blanco, complex and satisfying. Agave aroma, sweet ripe agave flavor. A pleasant creamy or buttery flavor is present, along with black pepper and anise at the finish. Great mouthfeel, a touch oily. A pleasant finish. Crisp and clean for 84 proof. I enjoyed drinking this!

Been waiting 4 this brand 2 surface 4 a while, purchased & shipped from Zee; nice peppery agave on the nose; very smooth, almost oily on the tongue, delicious! More cooked agave, light citrus on the back end; at $70USD, I believe it is priced a little too high, but overall a decent deal 4 an artisanal tequila. Blind tasted next Fortaleza & IMO, Fortaleza Blanco is still the best deal;

The mineral and banana peel taste takes completely the palate, great balance with a different and long finish with herbaceous profile.

June 27, 2019 I made sure to stop at Cascahuin distillery in El Arenal on the drive from GDL to PVallarta. 3 bottles of the Tahona Blanco set me back 1980 pesos. I am so stupid, I should have filled a suitcase full of this Buena Caca. Everything you want & expect. 2nd bottle, lote 1037, 02/02/2020 SuperBowlSunday, great aroma seems a litte more funky than previous bottle, 40wt oily feel, minerals & cirtus taste with a touchdown scoring finish. If you like blancos, you have to get you some of this.

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.
