Beautiful. Cascahuin from the moment you sniff it and take a sip. But then, it surprises you with sweetness and smoke that is not very typical of Cascahuin. A great one for sure.

Oak and cooked agave notes coupled with hints of vanilla and smokiness from resting in mezcal barrels. Very nice mouthfeel, light at first but then the agave and smokiness shine through. A near perfect mix of a reposado-like finish, that ends on a blend of slightly smoky mezcal notes, sweet agave, vanilla, and spice. It drinks like a high end, slightly sweet mezcal.

I went into this without knowing what to expect or the story behind this liquid. It blew my mind as I was expecting a standard Blanco. As soon as it hit my glass I knew something special was coming. I thought it was the background causing my glass to show a tint but sure enough it's straw colored. Wtf?! Nose- Agave, oak (?!), basil, earth, sweet fruit. Smoked meat. Now I'm making sure I have the right sample. Taste- A religious experience. Smokey iodine, agave, butter, anise, caramel, and faint vanilla (I'm guessing from the oak). Mouth feel is rich for a Blanco Finish- The scotch-like notes fall off quickly, leaving a spicy end to my experience. I don't understand what just happened.

Nose: Very sweet agave notes. A touch of pineapple, black pepper clear as day. Very faint mesquite. Very pleasurable on the nose, top 10 for me personally, I could smell this all day. Palate: Sharp agave instantly, the pepper on the nose definitely comes through. Definitely some heat but it plays well with that Sharp agave kick. I’m getting something that reminds me of Fortaleza for some reason. Minerals on the finish, but not very prominent in the initial tasting for me. A little buttery, but not a sweet butter. Very, very interesting. Definitely more of that mesquite on the finish for me. Verdict: Wow, very good stuff here. This is something I’d definitely love to show off to people who haven’t had a more interesting tequila. The light mesquite and the clear pepper notes make this one very, very interesting for me. I’m definitely a fan, hoping the rest of the ArteNOM lineup is this good.

The lightest straw color. Sweet nose, light baking spices and cooked agave with very subtle caramel notes. The booze makes itself present although not a burner. Buttery, round mouth feel. A faint touch of butterscotch. Ever so minor touch of smoke I actually feel like I was searching for it rather than it being a true representation. A little spice at the end. - heat runs through an excellent finish and let’s you know it’s got presence.

Agave forward on the nose.. some elements of smoke... slight fruitiness .... a different blanco tequila... coked agave on the mouth. Excellent

The nose greets you prior to each sip and then the pleasant flavors reward your decision to partake this spirit. The finish is a flavorful mix of sweet and savory peppers. This is a unique blanco that’s rested in brady barrels that previously contained an Oaxacan mezcal. What an interesting tequila. The nose is a nice mixture of light floral sweetness and some warm earthy notes like hay and minerals with a hint of morning campfire smoke. It’s complex. I first get sweet cooked agave and then some warm baking spices immediately follow. There’s a pleasant warming tingle from the 43% abv that lingers into the finish. This product begs you to take sip after sip.

Wait, this straw colored tequila is a blanco?! ArteNOM 1123 is doing things the old way, aging in used oak barrels for 3-4 weeks—and mezcal barrels at that! I’m picking up aromas of agave, pineapple, baking spices, smoke, straw, and cider. I taste vanilla, almond, licorice, cinnamon, pepper, smoke, and flowers. The flavors span the spectrum, making this really balanced. Simply excellent!

The latest ArteNOM, AN 1123 Blanco Historico is a blanco made from lower brix (24) agave from the Valle and then finished for 3 to 4 weeks in brandy barrels that had previously held Oaxacan mezcal. I remember I read it was Don Amado who had used the barrels prior. Big fragrant nose from the resting of this now straw colored Cascahuin made distillate in the barrels. A bit of sour cider notes with caramelized agave carried by 43% ABV juice turns into an very aggresive spiciness on intake, slamming the tongue with sharp flavors from the ethanol, the resting, the base blanco itself. Man, I want to taste this at still/barrel proof if this what 43% tastes like. Finish is quite long at the center of the tongue, minutes long really. A worthy addition

Hints of Cascahuin on the nose! Raw honey in the mid-palate, the creamy stuff, not the clear stuff. Interesting execution - worth trying for sure. I would sip again

A clean, straw colored blanco. Nose: Big saucy, sweet and spicy notes immediately jump to the forefront. Baked pineapple upside down cake, comes to mind: The richness of slow cooked pineapple, melted butter & crumbs, caramelizing brown sugar, allspice and cinnamon. An additional smokey pepper note and hints of vanilla creaminess. Fresh cut orange roses. A faint smell of attic dust. A bit of cider. Just the faintest suggestion of Mezcal funkiness, campfire smoke and wood influence at this stage. Flavor: White pepper and cinnamon heat blast out of the starting gates and refuse to back off. But the heat is a perfect foil to the fruit, agave, vanilla, anise, almond and salted melted butter - making for a rich and oily palate experience. In the mouth, more than in the nose, you find some its Mezcal heritage (having spent 28 days in a Don Amado Mezcal barrel). Then further stabilized in Stainless Steel for 30 days. Finishing impressions: Some minerals, grassiness and floral sensations show late in the finish. A lot of sweetness for 24 Brix agave - I have to think the barrels contributed to this. On the one hand, this is a bold, brash and feisty sip. On the other hand, this is a silky, suave and easy sipper. A great collaboration.

Lo primero que resalta es el tenue color pajizo resultado del reposo de 28 días en barricas usadas en mezcal espadín Don Amado.  NARIZ: muy sutil ahumado, menor al que se podía encontrar en el cascahuin aniversario; arcilla, pimienta, flor de azhar, agave crudo, ciruela amarilla, menta. BOCA: aquí si hay un buen golpe a mezcal, se siente el agave espadín, se confirma el sabor terroso, picante, la pimienta

Bottle: Lot 43 Appearance: Very pale straw Nose: Cooked agave, black pepper, smoke, charred pineapple, baking spice, earth, minerality…really unique and enticing nose Palate: Cooked agave, smoke, black pepper, cinnamon, vanilla, charcoal, butter, minerality, cider, tobacco, anise, earth, oak, alcohol…warm with good flavor, but a bit muted Finish: Long, with lingering smoke, butter, alcohol, and earth flavors Overall: A very good and unique tequila. I really like mezcal and was hoping for a lot more influence than was present. The flavors were all great, but a bit muted. I agree with the other reviewers, this would be a great sipper to pair with a cigar.

So much agave all the way through! The hint of smoke is a perfect match with the sweet juice. If you enjoy sipping blancos this is a must buy! It’s a bit expensive comparative to other amazing blancos, but worth it because it’s such a unique tequila.

The influence of the mezcal barrel adds a pleasing smokey accent to this earthy blanco.

High notes of mezcal, good taste, a bit harsh on the finish. It’s a unique experience tequila that pairs well with a cigar.

Initial agave sweetness on the tongue. Then some butter turning to a nice peppery heat. Earthy mint finish. The smoke is extremely subtle on this.

On the nose it has a pleasant agave with a touch of smoke. On the palette it has mineral mushroom into a citrus heat. Hated it with ice, recommend with neat only
