Nice cooked agave aromas Soft sipper with earthy notes, pepper and loaded of cooked agave. Reminds me of older Viva Mexico bottling.

Nose and palate were soft. Not a bad offering but not my favorite. Finish was slightly bitter.

On the nose, cooked agave and distinct minerality. Lemon peel, citrus. Fruit, like melon maybe. Some pineapple, bordering on that sharp sweetness of overripe pineapple. On the palate, Lemon oil, immediately and a ton of cooked agave and minerals. A little bit of pepper, and a vegetal note. Very oily, medium-ish finish. Overall, Not bad. I wouldn’t add this to my collection, but I’m glad to have tried it. Shout out to Tequila Mockingbird for giving me a sample. It’s competent, clearly well made, but the very basic flavor profile is not my cup of tea(quila) with the specific notes I’m getting.

This easy sipper is good. Pure cooked agave up front with citrus, baking spices, some vegetalness and a slight peppery finish.

Cooked agave on the nose…. Spring time on the nose…Fresh water/ minerality, citrus… grassy with some floral. Good body not water watery … natural sweetness from the cooked agave on the mouth with some citrus and lemon slight burn that does not last long at all quick heat then transform to a natural/ organic sweetness.

I’m greeted with bright agave and grassy notes. As I swirl there’s nice tears which ultimately lead to a wonderfully creamy sip. I’m tasting agave, grass, pepper, citrus, and a touch vegetal. It gives a soft impression due to the velvety mouthfeel, but there’s some really bright notes and a tingle of pepper in there too. I could drink this all day.

TAU Blanco 38% Just above the glass I detect some minerality and then as I get closer I get bright agave and then some oily lemon zest. I taste the agave and citrus right away. The minerality hits on the mid-palate and then a nice vegetal pepper hits right before the finish. There is a nice light alcohol tingle on the finish which I didn’t expect from a 38% abv / 76 proof Blanco tequila. This tequila has been oxygenated. This is another great tequila from NOM1414 - Sergio Cruz - Master Distiller. It’s Confirmed Additive Free by Grover and Scarlet at TMM.

Martin introduced me to his brand Tequila Tau which brings homage to the Wixarika culture. Right away a very fruity and sweet agave, with notes of tropical fruits especially banana (first time seeing that). Follows with notes of sweet pineapple/orange juice that is covered by a velvety sensation. Has some herbal/grassy notes as well and finishes with a black pepper. Really amazed by this new brand!

Un fuerte olor a canela de la bienvenida a este tequila blanco; acompañado por Agave cocido, banana y pimienta. En boca se confirma la canela, con toques de avellana, es mineral y terroso. El retrogusto es persistente y profundo.

Pretty subtle nose, getting some interesting citrus notes. Light pepper and raw agave on my mouth. Pretty smooth, wish this could had more character. Taste is short and light for me. Fair and honest tequila, great for sipping.

Rated blind. Lots of hay, dried grass, cooked agave, and cinnamon. Smells and tastes totally natural. Lots of agave flavor and natural sweetness. Feels great in your mouth. Clean, yet lots of character. Great job.

Mexican release version @ 38% ABV Aromas: This nose isn’t the most forceful that I’ve ever experienced, but it is one of the most jam packed with aromas in recent memory. It starts with roasted agave. It transitions to trace barnyard, full blown citrus and grassy/herbal notes. Alkaline minerals emerge, green banana, cinnamon, mint and vanilla. Flavor: Agave is the star with robust black pepper and a silky mouth feel. A slight letdown from the nosing. Finish: Rich round caramelized agave clings and lingers, playing off green peppercorns, and spices of cinnamon and anise. I would like to try the 40% USA version. I think this tequila would benefit from a more robust 40% ABV profile. IMO.

Lote TAUBCO1931, bottled on 12-09-2019. This bottle has a round white sticker which is the award of Gold medal from the Academia del Mezcal y del Maguey competition in 2020. Aroma: briny raw agave, light black olive note, feels oily, minty & fresh, aromatic herbaceous note. Palate: salty raw agave, minty & fresh, oily mouthfeel. At the end it is slightly astringent. No agave sweetness… Finish is medium to medium long, salty raw agave with minty notes persist.

The fact that this blanco is so tropical forward goes to show you that you can have a unique tequila without using additives. The combination of agaves used and all the other production methods used is what makes good brands/distilleries good. Grassy and raw agave funk with banana and mineral undertones. My go to for tequila tiki cocktails!

Very smooth and clean. Nothing going on but cooked agave. No bitterness, a little sweet and floral. One of my favorite blancos.

Very smooth and clean sipper. Not a lot of complexity but the nose is fresh, flavor has plenty of agave, minerals, citrus. Finish is great. Evolves and lingers.

Brought home from Mexico. A great choice. The nose is average but the flavors and the finish are excellent. The agave and the mouthfeel are wonderful. I like that it is very clean and smooth. This is a Tequila that all of us should taste so we can get a good idea of what we should look for. Search it out and buy a bottle. You will be a better person. 2 years later I found a dust covered bottle in a small liquor store. The owner had to get a towel to wipe it off. I still enjoy this. I dropped a point for value. This is agave throughout and smooth to the end.

Sabor agave cocido.artesanalmente, es un tequila bien hecho. Uno de los mejores blancos que he probado. One wonderful blanco!

Aroma is fairly easy, light vanilla, grass with toasty nut and agave. Really great flavour, this would qualify as a classic ‘light’ blanco for me, all the flavours are present but it a nice subtle manor. Finishes with a nice long agave finish.
