Powerful aroma of cheese, dough, and bubble gum hits you. Some agave shows up on the flavors, but there’s a slight plastic note. It has a pleasant thick mouthfeel but a lingering aftertaste. Honestly I feel bad about the low rating for a quality brand like this, but this profile just a doesn’t hit the right notes for me.

Aroma has a strong “funk” of mushroom and/or stinky cheese along with some cooked agave underneath. The aroma is almost similar to some Syrah wines but with cooked agave. Mushroom aroma follows into the flavor which also includes a peppery spice and maybe a bit of mint. Finish is short. I can’t find too much to like with this one. And, at $65 this seems way overpriced. Not for me. March tequila tasting - blancos, 03-24-2022

From blind tasting; Agave bomb! I visualize standing in front of a brick oven as the agave cooks..steam vents through the door crevices..giving off the sweet cooked agave aroma.

@38, Snappy on the nose. Sweet, licorice, but heat prevails. Warm, sweet mid palate but agave itself doesn’t prevail. Spike before the finish. Would drink again but loses a bit of points in value.

A little peppery, a nice lean blanco. Good choice

Excellent nose of cooked agave, earth and minerals, vegetal and then lighter notes of citrus and orange peel, green apple and then a hint of roses and cinnamon. It’s a complex nose. It’s oily. The legs and tears stick to the glass. I taste agave first and then lime and then some white pepper up front that transitions to black pepper. There is a hint of smoke. The taste lingers and the finish is nice and long. This is a quality tequila and it’s the most exciting new blanco I’ve tried since Volans. It’s new to the US market but it’s worth hunting down. Salud.

Big punch of agave, this is an agressive blanco with some oil in the mouth, jalapeño pepper, ethanol and a fade to some slight bitterness. If this were neutral or had some slight natural sweetness I would have added a couple more points. We'll see how the aged products are.

Nose: Up front, robust ripe agave. This is made with a high pressure autoclave. But the aroma reminds me more of low pressure and slow cooked high Brix agaves. There is light spice, cinnamon, and soft vanilla notes. Subtle cooked artichoke and green banana scents. A bit of citrus. A slight sulfur note. Flavor: The agave flavors parallel the aromas. There is a warming pepper and cinnamon presence that plays well with the vanilla cream and almond paste suggestions. A cooked vegetal touch in the mix. Great balance and mouth feel. Finish: It does not evolve a whole lot on the finish, a tiny bit of smokiness and anise show up. It is a very pleasant sipper that I could envision drinking for an entire evening.

Cooked agave, fruit, and a tiny bit of vanilla in the aroma. More cooked agave in the flavor. Has a nice natural mouth feel. Finish is short. This is not a super complex tequila, but it is quite good.

Vegetal notes open up to cake batter. Very alcohol aroma/taste for a 38% abv. Mildly sweet with a short finish. Simple.

Pretty much as close to perfect as I’ve had, it’s 100% agave forward, soft, perfect mouthfeel. Really exceptional!!!

Aroma- sea salt? Cheese? Taste- thin, clean, agave. Pepper. After taste - pleasant agave long lasting burn. Fresh grass.

Aroma: cheese! With hints of agave. Definitely more cheese forward Taste: cheese, agave, rose petals This is so weird. It tastes and smells like cheesy agave! Finish: warm finish. Oily mouthfeel I have not had this before but i was told about this one at tahona mercado! I cant remember what it was. Atanasio?? I dont know how they do this. Maybe something special with fermentation? Not my every day thing but very fun. I will drink again and have as a party favor!

Wow. The funky malolactic cheese smell with ripe bananas definitely drew me in. The taste is incredible ripe banana and yeast almost like a slight banana pancake, mint, vanilla, fruit , earthiness and pepper. Could definitely be an everyday supper

I love the blanco and the flavor explosion. It has an amazing cheesy and briny nose that just melts into the flavor profile. An overall viscous mouthful with heavy cooked agave and brine. It is pricy but I believe it’s worth every penny. It’s a great sipping blanco. I picture this with a nice charcuterie board. It would pair perfectly.

Very surprised by this one. Wow. Really good. Aroma has agave grande! Taste is good with agave and pepper with some minerality and even mild sweetness. Finish is good and long lasting. This was the mex 38%

Atanasio Blanco is enjoyable, and the complexity grows as it opens up. It losses some points on affordability. At $65, it is on par with El Tesoro that sells for around $50. Nose: Cooked agave, mushroomie and yeasty earthiness with a vegetal resemblance to baked artichokes that quickly transition to a soft vanilla and almond cake batter aroma. I sometimes get a charcoal and butterscotch mix with banana, too. Quite unusual. Taste: Mild, natural oily mouthfeel that is very pleasant. Low sweetness with a mild cracked pepper warmth. Cooked agave and pepper are predominant, but traces of smoke, cream soda, and a limestone minerality linger. Finish: Starts off strong and fades quickly leaving behind a nice peppery warmth.

Nose is agave up front then fruit, prune, latex scents. Opens up fast and changes to tobacco and leather notes within 10 minutes of 1st opening pour. Becomes more floral. Taste is a good balance of agave, mint, pepper, pear.

This is fine as a sipper but it's not overly complex and not as refined as some of the better blancos particularly in this price range.

Wow, had no idea. Check the cooking and production methods. Blown away that this isn’t traditional style.
