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 93. 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.

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.

Smell: Agave punch right at the beginning. Very green for me. Taste: Sweet initially on the tip of the tongue. Then pepper, salinity, earthy finish with some anise and mint at the end. A bit pricey. The packaging is cool for display, but there others out there similar for better value.

Very Floral Nose Evens out to a roasted/caramelized agave body Finishes kind of harshly, but dissipates quickly

Maybe the best blanco juice out there, the influence of the water and plants from Michoacán with higher sugar rates definitely puts this tequila in the top Blancos.

$100/750ml A: Strong cooked agave profile, reminiscent of gingerbread and maybe a little pumpkin or yam with prominent floral notes. There's a wave of anise, accompanied by cinnamon, vanilla, mineral, and some petrichor. The sweetness is almost candied in character. Hint of white pepper and mint. F: Prominent cooked agave in the flavor with mint, gingerbread, cinnamon, vanilla. There's some pepper on the back end with anise as well. This finish is graceful and mellow, and I immediately want to take another sip. The mouthfeel is silky and coats the palate. it has some heft and viscosity. I'm not sure if it gets better than this. Up there with Criollo but at a slightly lower cost.

Lot 009- on the nose i get a burst of sweet cooked agave, very earthy (clay like) minerality up the roof. grounded up white pepper. also this is very floral.. getting lavender, jasmine and hibiscus. citrus like lime and ruby red grapefruit. very well blended..very creamy and silky. with a nice peppermint spice. on the palate the sweet roasted agave kicks with hints of sweet potatoes and papaya. roasted pineapple raw honey and an assortment of spices( cinnamon, anise,oregano,rosemary) alot of brine and the right amount of salinity.. like pickled green olives.. light cheesy undertones and rose water. great mouthcover creamy/oily. finish is superb. light chest warmth. im loving the exhale heat. i understand the price tag. reminds me of a blend between Fortaleza still strenght blended with cazcanes blanco.. as of 2/14/22 there is two blottles at the las vegas total wine... go bet them Fam.

Lote 009. This tastes very similar to Purasangre Fuerte Blanco. It’s definitely more complex and less sweet/fruity, but the dominant flavors are almost identical. I don’t get nearly as much minerality, brine and olive that I was expecting. The presentation with the box and all is fantastic, but the juice inside is way too similar to Purasangre (which is only $25 per liter in my area) to be worth the $110 price that I paid. It’s definitely not bad, but for the price it’s absolutely not worth it. I’ve heard lote 008 has much more minerality and brine so I’m not ruling it out completely, but this lote isn’t anything special.

The Funky mushroom hits you in the face at first sniff, followed by brine and green olive. Tastes of white pepper, smoke and that mushroom funk. The short finish is fronted by the green agave. Not much burn. Tasted blind. I assume this is well made but I’m not a fan, especially at $100+ a bottle. During a blind tasting of four high proof blancos, Cascahuin, Calle 23 Criollo, Fortaleza Still Strength, this came in a distance forth.
