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.

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.

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.

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.

Love the oily mouth feel of this and mineral taste. Complex flavors for a Blanco this is a really unique expression that should be on a must try list.

Brine. So much brine and a finish that goes on and on. Flawless. Not sure it gets better than this. Pricey but man it’s so worth it.

On my second bottle. Plan at least two more before the end of the year. Brilliant … to be enjoyed slowly over time.

Aroma- top score for me for a blanco- long finish - complexity is intense- felt like drinking the equivalent of a Gemini- which I am- felt like so many things were happening in every sip- and it will probably vary even more my next time- if you like surprises- this is amazing- can’t wait to sip again!

I can find no fault in this beauty. My hats off to el Señor Enrique Fonseca. This blanco completely changed my perspective on tequila blanco. This blanco has so much flavor, I want to take a cup full and slowly pass it down like I would chew on a beautifully marbled Angus beef steak. it's complexity of the agave juice first rate bar none. It is full of roasted sweet agave with minerality and earthiness just to name a few. I was tasting the agave days later even.

Mellow citrus, a touch of butter, and pleasant minerality, with decent pepper/spice and brine on the finish. It’s slightly hot but not uncomfortably so.

Nose: cooked agave, earth, vanilla, marshmallow, and tons of beautiful minerality lingering. I enjoyed just taking in this complex nose long before actually trying it. Taste: balanced cooked agave and vanilla shine first. Orange citrus peel with pleasant tartness is complimented by refreshing bright agave and minerals. Clean, focused finish. Exceptional start to finish.

Yep that’s delicious. Beautiful cooked agave, butter, minerals, brine , corn and mint aroma. Medium viscosity with a beautiful pallet of cooked agave from arrival to development to a medium long finish. Enough commenting, more sipping. ¡Salud!

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.
