Relatively subtle aroma, but very bright and clean. More raw agave than cooked agave. Also, some minerality and grassiness. Tastes, very clean and lively, quite a bit of anise, and agave. A lemon grass character as well. Very long and juicy finish for a Blanco. Perhaps a bit more expensive than I want to pay for a Plata like this. However, a very solid tequila overall.
Creamy, mineral, mint, citrus, anise, pepper. High price, glad someone shared a glass with me!
Nose: citrus, star anise, tropical notes, and cooked agave Flavor: citrus, tropical fruit, earthy, cooked agave, sweetness from cooked agave, and has an oily mouth feel and is well balanced Finish: medium finish that has a lot of pepper
Really interesting Blanco. Very unique nose. Balanced flavors of citrus, anise, white pepper and cooked agave. Great package, price point a little high at $85 a bottle just coming out of the gate.
The nose is very fragrant. I get lime zest, bright fruit notes and some anise / mint. Its a has a high viscosity. I taste buttery cooked agave, minerals, some vegetal notes, and spearamint before the slight peppery finish. This is a nice tequila! Its well made and tastes great.
Nice aromas of tropical fruit, mint/anise and cooked agave with an oily mouthfeel and peppery finish. Naturally sweet and balanced.
Nose- little Maletic funkiness, minerality, citrus anise, pepper Flavor- this is where it really shines. Cooked agave followed by little orange peel citrus mixed with a bitter dark chocolate. Very nice
Great aroma, pepper, agave, mint. lighter on the flavor and finish. Really good overall.
Light aroma and taste, except for lots of pepper in both.
Aroma / Nose: agave, citrus, earthy, alcohol, grass. Flavor: smooth agave opening, followed by anise/citrus, earthy grass. Finish: smooth non-burning aftertaste that stays with you. Opinion: Bottle 878 - Wow! Love the slightly (almost imperceptible) yellowish/greenish color. Yes is a joven but the legs and the smell of agave and the citrus sweet aftertaste mmm... one of the best blancos/joven I have tasted, I think it is worth the price specially IF you can find it since only 1,000 bottles were produced.
Really interesting notes of mint, anis and agave! A little artichoke on the finish. Very unique product with great flavor
if it weren't for Grover and Scarlet rating this 90+ I'd assume people were either being paid for these reviews or offered free bottles to review it. It's a decent blanco expression from a relatively unknown NOM being licensed out for style-point bottling by a distillery that normally does vodka and whiskey. Crisp, clean agave with some nice mint notes and the well water adds a minerality that's appreciated, but this is absolutely nothing to write home about. You're better off saving the 85ish I'm finding it for and just buying G4, Ocho or Fortaleza blanco. Every one of these would blow the doors off this drink in every single comparable category, and I'd put good money on that.
I can't agree with the 91+ scores on here, the tequila is good nothing special and super overpriced, on the nose you get fresh citrus, sweet agave and anise, on the palate the entry is smooth then onto some heat with a lot of anise and pepper. if this was 40 I would buy again at 85 I would buy 2 bottles of any ocho blanco which is far better.
Mint anise pepper and minerals on both the nose and palette. Very well balanced tequila.
Elegant bottle with astounding aroma and a smooth finish that will keep you coming back for more. I drink tequila three ways; on the rocks, in a margarita, and up with a lime/jalapeño. KOKORO is now my go to blanco for all three methods. HIGHLY recommend!
Starting getting into Blancos and this is one of the smoothest ones I’ve had. A bit sweeter than say Suerte and very smooth. Opened a bottle for some friends and we genuinely enjoyed it. Agave up front with a small bit of spice and tastes of vanilla on the finish. Great stuff. Drinks much more expensive than $85 a bottle.
I am all about Blanco - and this Plata XXX is among the most exciting new Spirits I have come across. A gift from a good friend in California that is always on the hunt for what’s new and relevant. Kokoro XXX is smooth with a strong clean finish. One of the more fresh and exciting aromas for a Blanco. Bottle is also a beauty and now has a place of honor and intrigue on the bar.
I normally don’t go for Blanco tequila. I really prefer the rounded edges of Anejo or resposado. But this really fills the pallet without the edge you get from other un-aged tequila. Pairs great with zoom meetings and online poker.
Definitely has become my favorite tequila... so smooth! Worth every penny!
