Superb Blanco. Volans is coming strong right out the gate! Had this a while back when it was 1st released, and still not widely available yet, but worth the search or simply go online to get it. Tons of warm cooked agave, vegetal, floral, mint, apple, white pepper, citrus zest, bubble yum, chunky and a great linger... lot 2 is definitely one to hoard!

One of the best blanco tequilas I’ve enjoyed in a long while! Clean, crisp vegetal (raw agave) on the nose. Nice, earth mid and bright finish with just a touch of warmth. Super easy to enjoy. Be sure to have a back up bottle!

The aroma has vegetal, grassy notes alongside the classic earth-minerality-cooked agave combo seen in other 1579 Blancos. This carries through in the taste where there's more prominent minerals, and tons of sweet cooked agave that's made more mellow from oxygenation. Spicy black pepper, cinnamon and light fruits are also present. The finish is decently long with agave and spice that keep you coming back for more as the glass opens up.

Nose: A fresh dynamic nose. Minerals, vibrant citrus aromas: lime, lemon and grapefruit. A bit of smokiness. Dandelions on a spring day. Spicy, caramelized sweet agave. A hint of dill weed. Flavor: Spicy. Kicky pepper. Fruity: apples and pineapple. Velvet-like on the palate. Thick and chewy. This agave has spectacular natural, rich sweetness . These agaves must be fully mature and high brix plants. A fleeting dill herbal note. Finish is rich and satisfying. Ends with some pineapple, cinnamon/pepper heat and salty caramel.

Fresh rainfall, dill, green apples. Unmistakably Felipe. Soft edges but not dull. Some pears, cooked agave and very light touch of white pepper. The finish is hanging on and coating the back of my mouth. Outstanding.

Amazing sweet cooked agave, so full of natural sugar, minerals, floral notes, anise and butter. Some smoke appears on taste, along with the butter, minerals and anise and a pinch of citrus..... just absolutely amazing.

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

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.

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.

In regards to taste: up front, cooked agave, light, soft, gentle, crispy and citrusy, with a hint of salty mineral rock. It’s very toned down, effortless sip from beginning to end, and it’s definitely balanced. For me, it has low bite/harshness as well as low heat (comparing to high proofs) which is not a bad thing at all. This sip is easy, and very enjoyable. It must be the water(s) for sure. I will be grabbing a couple more bottles of this Blanco. If NOM 1579 had a theme song it should be Britney Spears “oops I did it again!”

Aroma is crisp and clean. Agave all the way. No burn. Soft and smooth. Taste. Grass, with a little brine and a hint of nuttiness that I can’t figure out. A slight butter cream. Very round and goes down so easy. This is a top top blanco for me.

This is my favorite NOM 1579 blanco, it’s just amazing. The nose has a ton of cooked agave, some floral notes, grass, black pepper, Elmer’s glue (not a bad thing), and the trademark El Pandillo minerality. The palate is agave forward, but there’s also crisp fruit (apples/pears), cinnamon, brine, and anise. Not as “smooth” as other blancos from this distillery, but made up for with tons of depth and full-bodied flavors. Although they’re all great, I think this is more complex than G4 and Pasote. This also has a strong fruit/anise profile and I prefer it over the earthiness of Terralta. It has a little heat, but I think it make the flavors all the more vibrant. A must-try if you’re able to find it!

Aroma of raw agave, light leather, and cucumber. Flavor is a mouthfull of agave, some light citrus, and muted mint and pepper and salt. Maybe a bit of pear as well. Well balanced, a very good Blanco!

Finally got to test the last brand of Felipe that I was missing. Yes he did it. It’s a guarantee that fellow! The aromas are of clean-pure-natural tequila. I love smelling roasted sugar and this one has it. Smells like the campechanas (Mexican crisp caramelised pastry) coming out of the oven. It has a lot of greens and freshness in it. It’s wet river rocks, country mourning walk at dawn. It’s just clean, crispy, hierbabuena and a kick of alcohol. The flavours are warm, but fresh, they are clean, and love how it sits on the tongue horizontally in the mid-back palate. It’s great. Comparing with the other 4 brands of El Pandillo - Terralta, Pasote, G4 and artenom 1579 - for me in that order. I will place Volans in 4th place now.

Been on my wishlist 4 years! Mike from Great Lakes turned me on to siptequila.com & BAM, a week later, I’m drinking some hard 2 find tequilas! Clean & crisp on the nose, not a ton of essence; warm vanilla across the front, not a ton of character, just clean & crisp notes of mineral & agave; warm across the backend, more pepper & honey, really nice finish; a terrific value at $60USD;

Softer and cleaner than Terralta but not as soft and drinkable as G4. And not the finish of G4. But clearly one of the top tequilas in the world.

Very nice! Agave, pepper, citrus. Nice mild agave up front with a little pepper heat in the middle with some citrus. The pepper continues to the finish and it leaves a nice clean feel.

another fantastic blanco from Felipe Camarena. aroma is heavy on agave and minerals (obviously his use of the water contributes here). citrus, vegetal and flowers can be picked up as well. the flavor keeps the agave and minerals up front with citrus, anise, pineapple developing next. has a nice pepper on the tongue throughout. the finish is a bit less than I expected but still is an outstanding blanco
