Strong vegetal aroma upfront with distinct agave clearly forward. Secondary/background floral and salty brine aromas follow. Very smooth with green vegetable flavors at the open with cinnamon, black pepper and fruit (Apple/pear) supporting. Warm, spicy finish lingers for a moderate length. This is a pretty traditional blanco with some of the typical “roughness” polished off. 12-04-2019

Okay 1579 fans. Felipe and El Pandillo have created another exquisite juice in the name of Volans. I have already rated the XA, which is amazing, but now we tackle the blanco. Typical highlands tequila with green apple, pear, raw asparagus and unripe banana. Seems the brix is perfect around 35 ish, making for a great juice. There is a little smoke to this which differentiates this from Terralta, Pasote or G4, slightly.

I love Blanco Tequila and Felipe Camarena! The nose is wonderful. I detect a lot of agave, minerals, brine, citrus, lemon grass and some light floral notes. The flavor is excellent. The fresh agave and citrus notes are followed by a nice mix of pepper and brine. The finish is all agave and it goes down easy. It has a nice round feel mostly likely from the oxygenation. Overall this is a perfect sipping blanco for my pallet. If you enjoy sipping blancos then you should add this to your collection. Great job Volans and El Pandillo! ¡Salud!

Thick, creamy, chewy, natural and delicious are the 5 things that come to mind on sipping this Felipe Camarena creation for the first time. Some sweetness develops on following sips along with some pleasing mineral notes. This uses all 3 available water sources in its production and it shows in the taste and finish as elements bloom, cover up others and then reveal those again as the finish develops and fades. Nice pepper and spice on the tongue lead to a long satisfying finish.

This is an outstanding Blanco . I have only tasted it at El Pandillo and I have no idea of the price. Value is rated somewhere like G4 for that reason. Different from all other offshoot of G4 this includes rain water Spring water and deep well water. This gives it the presence of the a agave taste and aroma of G4.

Taste isn’t as strong. Either has strong agave or artificial flavoring

Aromas of anise, minerals, orange rind and sweet cooked agave. A nice, rounded mouthfeel (due in part to oxygenation). Sweet agave flavor with a black pepper finish for a little kick. Like all of Felipe Camarena’s blancos, it is well made and highlights the prime materials (agave, and spring, well and rain water —1/3 of each.) A solid sipper.

Yet another great product from El Pandillo. It has that mineral aroma and flavor that this distillery is known for. Also citrus and floral aromas. Flavor and finish are pretty much all agave. The aeration makes it super rounded, accentuating the sweetness of the agave.
