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!

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.

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 tempt you to chew this as you sip it. Creeping white pepper keeps the rich agave sweetness in check. Buttery. Nice mouth feel. Finish: This has a full, rich, lengthy finish: fading pepper, spice, and anise.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
