Interesting nose of spearmint, manchego cheese, raw agave, almonds. Tastes magnificently harmonious. Brine. Cooked agave. Maybe some jalapeño or bell pepper. Long nuanced finish. Doesn’t show its 89 proof. A delight.
Aroma and flavor of baked agave, minerals, olives, black pepper and celery. A wonderful consistency with a long smooth earthy finish. Quite pricey and worth every penny.
Lots on anise here, took me by surprise a little. Absolutely fucking delicious.
100th TMM review! Delicious agave on the pallet with a little tongue numbing. One of the best available but not enough to unseat the current king, Fuenteseca 13. I'll reevaluate in the future
On the nose, cooked agave, minerals. Brine, almost reminiscent of Fortaleza for me. Earthy, green olive. Some floral notes, and grapes, oddly enough. Faint, but clear. On the palate, Heavy bodied agave and immediately struck by what I can only describe as sweet potato. It’s so full bodied that I feel as if I’m taking a bite more than drinking. Barest hint of soft vanilla on the finish. Buttery, and a little bit of pepper. A nice spice to it. Very good.
re-evaluated from a 92 to a 94. This stuff is absolutely amazing, and some of the best Blanco Sol today
Just a small glass over an hour or so to savor this. As unique as the Calle 23 Criollo this is made from Michoacan Agave and has a funky earthy minerality that just doesn't appear in anything grown in the usual places in Jalisco. Copper pot distilled and then rested for several years in Stainless Steel this is the penultimate 1146 Blanco to date.
Aroma : Loads of cooked agave, earth, minerals, green olives, and cinnamon. There are some grassier undertones here as well with citrus and mint. Taste : Buttery, sweet, cooked agave with black pepper, cinnamon, earth, minerals, grass, mint, and a bit of salinity. Oily and thick texture in all the right ways wrap up the flavors together nicely. Finish : Long and warm with agave sweetness, cinnamon and green olives. Maybe even a bit of vanilla too. I finally found a Blanco to contend with Calle 23 Criollo. If you see this on the shelf, BUY IT. This stuff is amazing.
Well comparing this one to the 2013 I find it with a little heat at the beginning but still amazing. Agave straight forward every sip in smell and taste.
Aromas of cinnamon, caramelized agave, earth, clove and floral notes with delicious cooked agave taste, rich mouthfeel and light mint on finish.
Nose: A huge wallop of agave. Earthy minerals. Salinity and a hint of finely ground white pepper. Cinnamon and nutmeg. Quite floral: jasmine and lavender scents. Lime and citrus zest. All subtly woven together. Flavors: Oily, silky - but with spicy heat and black pepper pop that builds in intensity. The natural sweetness of the agave has a dark raw honey undertone. Floral impression carries through to the palate. Brine and green olives gives this more layers to savor. Finish: This has a very rich mouth feel and delivers bold parting punches of spice and pepper. And that buttery agave.... This one hangs around for a marathon finish.
Nose: nice cooked agave, citrus, green olives, brine, and minerals Flavor: cooked agave, citrus Lime, minerals, oily mouth feel, and light spice Finish: Long finish light black pepper and agave sweetness
The 2018 Cosecha was picked in 2018 and rested for two years in stainless steel, with agave coming from the Las Antenas orchard in Vista Hermosa, Michoacán. This mineral-rich location makes the 2018 stand apart. On the nose I'm picking up minerals, agave, brine, citrus, and floral notes that I didn't get as much in the 2013. Flavor-wise, there's agave of course. But the minerals come through in something like wet cement, along with the citrus, brine, olive, and cinnamon. This one is also sweet and silky in the mouth, but is a bit more floral and delicate than the 2013. Excellent!
Lot 09FSB26. The blue wax on the cork is brittle. Aroma; a lot of cooked agave, sweet potatoes, oregano, Clay, rainwater. Palate: baking spice, chalk, calcium, mineral, sweet and easy to drink, citrus, licorice, salt. Finish: mild heat, fruit, mineral, chalk, some pepper, anise. Long warm and little spicy. IMHO one of the three best blancos I’ve had up to 4/2021.
Wow. The natural sweetness of the agave, oily mouthfeel and complexity of this tequila is wonderful. Highly recommend it, dangerously easy to drink.
High elevation agave from Micohcacan makes this limited 2018 Fuenteseca Blanco special. Sweet, spicy cooked agave flavors through and through.
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.
nose flowery citrus alcohol taste superb herbal mineral citrus minty anise cucumber celery vegetal deliciousness olive seasalt with mild warm finish
As alot indicate, olive on tbe nose from the start then melding into agave, vanilla taffy, cinnamon and clean wet concrete. Flavor is heat up front that gives way to agave, minerals and vegetal peppers. Nice lasting finish that closes with agave and cinnamon.
A very good Blanco, lost a couple points in value. It’s on the pricey side for a Blanco with so many good offerings under $100. I will enjoy this bottle but not replace it when it’s gone.
An outstanding blanco with complex notes of cooked agave, citrus and olive brine. Very well made and perfectly balanced. Simply delicious from first sip through a lasting finish. Highly recommended.
The agave is so potent on the pour. It smells of sweet citrus, light hay, some pepper and minerality to top it off. The flavor is what sets this blanco off the edge. All of the smelling notes come through on the taste, but it also contains a creaminess I have never gotten from a tequila before that is absolutely fantastic. This is by far the best blanco I have been able to try.

Aroma: Notable aromas of sweet cooked agave, as well as light vegetal notes of citrus. Flavor: Sweet and light flavors of agave, a hint of minerality, not overly complex but quite good. Finish: A combination of pepper, agave, and citrus. A delicious tequila overall, but perhaps not the best value.
