Very fresh and green! Celery, cilantro, light pepper aroma. The aroma is the big hit on this one. Finish is short to none.

On the nose, very clear agave and minerality. Some sweet citrus and floral notes. There’s more going on but that agave, minerals and floral citrus really steals the show. It’s light like orange blossoms almost. On the palate, very clean. Lots of agave, cinnamon, and minerals. Some pepper, the citrus coming through. Very full bodied and oily, medium to long delicious finish. Stunner from 1579…but what else would you expect? Felipe simply knows what he’s doing.

Floral, citrus, mineral, minty, peppery, agave. Smells nice and bright! Good legs. Relatively short finish. Another enjoyable one out of El Pandillo, and it’s hard not to root for Cristina and Chad at Volans.

Excellent representation of the NOM1579 personality: cooked agave, earth/mineral & vegetal notes. Nose is amiable and complex with many layers (citrusy, peppery, herbal & fruity) You can actually smell the earth richness along with those unforgettable rain memories. Goes very well with that silky-like entrance. Great tequila!

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!

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!

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

Bottle #2792. Rested 10 minutes. Appearance is crystal clear. Long thin legs and small dotted tears. A few oily floaties but unfiltered so now expected. Nose- Agave, sweet peppers, wet grass, fresh fruit. Palate- Cooked agave, black pepper, seeded jalapeno, olive brine, melon, faint mint. Finish- Mild sweetness fades quickly to peppery heat and ends with medium lasting minerality. Super clean and delicious.

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.

Lote #2 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/anise 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.

This is now one of my favorite blancos. As soon as you open it and pour it to the glass the smell is amazing. No alcohol that burns you like others, the agave flavor that I love and no only that to top it off great price. A master piece.

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

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.

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.
