NOM 1412 | Olive nose opening up to floral notes with a rich mouthfeel and anis finish. Not as soft as the original version - I like it.
NOM 1499 | On the nose, I get butter, vanilla and cooked agave. A medley of those immediately, followed by a touch of wet grass on the back end, almost like the smell of outside after a light rain. On the palate, I definitely get the agave and spicy white pepper. Nice, balanced sweetness. Definitely some minerality. The butter note comes through, but not as much as the nose would suggest. Medium body, oily and almost silky. A touch of anise coming up on the finish for me. Definitely a very interesting tequila, highly enjoyable and unique.
NOM 1499 | This is a well made tequila with good cooked agave notes, pepper, and citrus ... I like the back story, sustainable, and community minded, taking care of their workers. Salud
NOM 1499 | Aroma : Grassy and flowery notes that remind me of Calle 23 Criollo. This is against a backdrop of sweet cooked agave and peppercorns. Taste : Agave, butter and meaty salami notes give this a level of funk that differs from the traditional cheesy, grassy kind you might find in a bottle of Cascahuín Tahona Blanco, or other tequilas that have rested a while after fermentation. The texture is full, creamy, and oily. Finish : Long, with a little more spice from black pepper and baking spices. I love bottles like this one that give you a unique flavor profile while still retaining the qualities of an old school traditionally made tequila. This is a treat.
NOM 1499 | Nice presentation ! Roasted agave, lime zest, pepper, orange blossom, honey and tropical fruits on the nose. Butter, black pepper, tropical fruits, spices, agave on the palate. Finish mid-short, with sweet tones of honey, agave, and fruits.
NOM 1499 | Initial impression: The aroma is lacking for me, but it may be due to my cold and dry home. I'll have to reevaluate in the spring/summer. The flavor is interesting, quite soft, and there is a note that I haven't quite placed, but it is very pleasing. Finish is satisfactory. I was hesitant about this product due to the 3x distillation, but had heard good things and wanted to try for myself. The glass stopper is different. It will take some getting used to since it has a tight fitting rubber(?) gasket. I scraped the inside of the neck as I pulled the stopper out. Hopefully, I don't scratch or crack the glass, but that would be my fault, not the bottle design.
NOM 1499 | $59.99 in Michigan. Rested 10 minutes. Appearance- clear ice. Long thin legs. Nose- Agave, citrus, wet earth, white pepper Palate- Damn! Sweet agave, black pepper, lime, melon, clay, vanilla and butter but not fake cake batter. This is layered and complex! Finish- Spicy, rich, deep, and goes for days. surprised this has been distilled 3x. I love this!
NOM 1499 | Floral with heat but a nice treat from everything that is out there. Agree with the other ratings that it needs time to open.
NOM 1499 | I highly recommend letting this breathe. The second tasting I let sit for ~5 mins and thoroughly enjoyed it more. Very complex taste, agave forward, lime, melon, slight pepper taste on the back end.
NOM 1499 | I’m picking up agave, lime, melon, flowers, wet stone, butter, vanilla, honey, cinnamon and white pepper. There’s a lot going on here, and it has its own vibe—in a very good way. It’s got nice legs and a rich mouthfeel too. This compares favorably to other premium craft blancos out there. Really nice.
NOM 1499 | Mijenta Blanco There’s a nice nose of vegetal agave and a hint of lime. There’s also an earthy note of wet red clay. It has a nice oily mouth-feel. I taste sweet agave up front and then a floral note that turns to pepper and then the sweetness returns. The finish is nice and long. It’s sweet and peppery. There’s a pleasantly long tingle on the tongue. Sweet heat! This is a nice sipping blanco that holds its own place. Salud!
NOM 1499 | The key to tasting this is to let it open up for a bit. At first I thought it was a bit linear and one dimensional, but after it hit oxygen, it started to develop. I had lime leaves , honey suckle and the rawness of asparagus on the nose. Very floral and earthy. The palate was a bit shallow for my taste - I like a blanco to punch me in the mouth and this was really gentle - almost too silky. But the star of the show is the finish. It’s a mineral/pepper (black and white) punch that lingers for days. I have to say, I’m pleasantly surprised.
NOM 1499 | The brain child of a former Bacardi exec and realized by Ana Maria Romero at NOM 1499, home to 3 Amigos, the new Corrido and several others, this is happily not anything like the Bacardi corporate abortion that is current Cazadores. It's kind of an odd package, all pink and gold, a conejo logo with a heavy, stubby bottle with an awkward, all glass stopper. The tequila inside however rises above all that and is inviting to drink. I'll add more in a bit.
NOM 1499 | Nose: sweet agave, earth, ripe tropical fruit, vanilla, hint of freshly bloomed yeast, and orange peel Flavor: Agave, honey, fruit, white pepper, has a clean buttery mouth feel Finish: long finish, sweet agave, and spice
NOM 1499 | Nose: Impressive ripe, round, rich agave start. A pronounced mineral element. Lime zest and orange blossoms.There’s a little background spice, light pepper and vanilla going on. A great balance of contrasting aromas. Flavors: Slow cooked caramelized sweet agave, and an umami note tempts you to chew this as you sip it. Creeping white pepper keeps the rich agave sweetness in check. A palm sugar vibe. Buttery. Nice mouth feel. Finish: This has a full, rich, lengthy finish: fading pepper, spice, cinnamon and anise.
NOM 1499 | Floral, fruit, black pepper, agave and slight yeast aromas. Flavor and finish are both really nice. Lots of sweet agave in both the flavor and finish. This is a well-crafted tequila.
NOM 1499 | Aromas of sweet cooked agave, flowers, tropical fruit, yeast, and (white?) pepper. Very rounded and balanced in the mouth with a slightly effervescent finish. Very pleasant, and I enjoy the more subtle profile.
NOM 1412 | In my glass: Mijenta Tequila Blanco Nose: I get a sweetness not sure if agave but I similar to other tequila’s that use Champaign’s yeast. Has a similar nose profile. I get a brine to the nose along with some vegetal notes. Taste: mint, pepper, agave, some brine, light citrus. Not as sweet as it is on the nose.
NOM 1499 | Upon opening I smelled caramel deliciously potent. Inside the glass, the smell of agave is tremendous as well as caramel, citrus, pepperiness, and fresh water. The taste is agave, agave and more agave with an immediate dash of spicy pepper,sweet caramel, tanginess and freshness. This being my first bottle of Mijenta I am enamored by its capturing of agave, sweetness and freshness. The finish trails away in citrusy watery notes. It’s a blanco that I would and will indulge in again and again, and would encourage others to experience as well. 40$ at Costco made this buy a no-brainer.
NOM 1499. Crystal clear. Clean, crisp agave on the nose. Vegetal, pepper, mineral, and earthy. Clean and crisp on the palate. Great mouthfeel. Agave forward, green, mineral, pepper, and wet grass on the palate. Nice finish. Beautiful Blanco tequila. Really enjoyed this one.
nice agave flavor cream buttery citrus what deal got at Costco for 36 amazing price really good blanc0
Favorite blanco!! Just so unique and easy to drink, there’s no bottle that goes down quite like this one for me! Incredible taste. Never rated any bottle so high.
NOM 1499 | Omg, an absolute slayer. Sip it neat or on ice, you will not be disappointed. Huge agave flavor and a hint of brine on the finish. Comes off the tongue really clean and 0 burn. A must buy.
Mijenta, whose name is derived from the Spanish for “my people,” is made by Maestra Tequilera Ana Maria Romero—a 25-year industry veteran—using fully mature Blue Weber agave grown in red clay soil.
