Wow. The natural sweetness of the agave, oily mouthfeel and complexity of this tequila is wonderful. Highly recommend it, dangerously easy to drink.

Nose: Salinity, brine. Like you’re sitting by the sea - thick moist salty air with agave sweetness. Taste: Salinity! Then agave, then citrus heat, bits of waxy honey, then warm vanilla towards the back end. Finish: Warm and long. Full of vanilla and a hint of olive brine. Incredible. One of the finest blancos I’ve tasted. Bravo

Rating is based off of first impressions, sipped from a Riegel tequila glass. I look forward to trying this in a Chisholm jarrito glass. Purchased online for US$120, but saw it available elsewhere for US$100. Excellent value. I bought two and will buy more. This has a lot of similarities to the 2013 release, but instead of a brininess, there is a sweetness (honey like) on the nose and the flavor reflects that as well.

There is a huge amount of cooked agave packed into the aroma and flavor of this tequila. If you ever want to see what fully mature agave can do, try this one. Simply incredible. Agave, olive, brine, citrus, and minerals in the aroma. Flavor is absolutely delicious, with more cooked agave, cinnamon and minerals. Then comes the agave and olive finish that lingers perfectly. I love this stuff. You can’t make tequila like this with 3 and 4 year-old plants. Thank you, Sr. Enrique.

Crazy good nose, brine, slight earthiness, great minerality. Flinty, almost wet stone-esque. The attack is awesome, quite a good bit of sweet agave (without being cloying), bright citrus too. Midpalate hits you with nice floral hints, and a dash of pepper. The finish is a bit cleaner than the 13, but it also hits you with just a TAD bit more heat, but it is by NO means hot. Absolutely wonderful, and with some bottle aging this will be just as good as the 13. Exceptional juice, and exceptional production!

High elevation agave from Micohcacan makes this limited 2018 Fuenteseca Blanco special. Sweet, spicy cooked agave flavors through and through.

Too bad this is out of my price range. The flavor and finish are incredible. Best I have tasted. The aroma had more alcohol than I anticipated. I am realizing that I am a novice and tend to like brighter flavors that can be a bit sweet sometimes. The flavors and finish on this one are complex and subtle. The finish had several stages. First the agave which is the best I have experienced. Then it evolves into an amazing array of subtle tones of citrus, smoke, vanilla, pepper and more. I’m sure I will update this description after I taste it again.

If this isn’t a 100 I don’t know what is.

As perfect as 2013 vintage. This amazing blanco packs roasted agave, cinnamon and hints of vanilla in every sip and does so without being sweet and detracting from the drinking experience.
