Love this bottling from Cabillito, fresh cooked agave notes dance on your tongue. Very balanced, citrus, agave, pepper, light heat all come together in this glass. Can’t say enough.

B - 111 46% ABV Chato (angustifolia) Unfortunately other bottle info stamped on inside of back label is not legible. Initial nasal impact has a nice prickle from the 46% ABV. Aroma is sweet cooked agave, mineral, jackfruit, earth, wildflower honey, vanilla bean and olive brine. Oily mouthfeel with generous heat. Fresh fennel bulb, cinnamon sweetness, wildflower honey, caramelized cooked agave make up a nicely complex flavor. The long finish carries on highlighting fennel, cinnamon and a bit of a lactic note. Incredible blanco from Cabillito Cerrero. Love how they stand up to the CRT by carrying the Destilado de Agave designation so they don't have to be pigeon holed into a category based on CRT regulations. When you find them, buy them. Pure genius, brilliantly done.

Humid roasted agave off the nose, very unique and inviting, makes me think of Mexico. Some elevated sweetness that is a bit much for my taste but this is an excellent Tequila (agave spirit, whatever).

Magnificent! Any CC expression will be of great quality. If you can do a side by side with Azul Blanco, both really enjoyable

Wow. The taste is more mezcal-ish. But really good cinnamon agave taste with some smoke and tangerine. Very different. But so good.

Starts with herbal, citrus and vegetal aromas coupled with a sweet green olive brine. Across the palate, a nice mouthfeel that has even more of that sweet and mild green olive, with a finish that hits with a punch of spice, agave, mint, and black pepper that lingers with a pleasant heat from the 46% abv. An excellent agave distillate that is not easy to find, but well worth enjoying.

Unusual, vegetal, green olive nose. Flavor bursts on the palette like a firecracker of black pepper, sweet agave, cinnamon. Definitely taste the 46%, and numbs the lips but balanced all the way through. One of the longest and tastiest finishes ever. Thick and slick mouthfeel, as with all Caballito Cerreros. A somewhat challenging, but extremely memorable spirit.

Cooked agave, smoke, grass, well water, cinnamon, minerals, citrus, lime, tropical fruits, celery, mint and rosemary. Palate includes all the aromas plus tangerine, melon or mango. Finish is warm medium , sweet, lite bitterness, barrel spices, cinnamon and little pepper. IMHO one of the three best blanco I like as of 4/2021.

Cooked agave for days although different to blue agave. However, it is also very mineral and earthy so it balances. The higher ABV version is my favourite as I find the flavours to be intensified.

A real treat. Agave forward with nice heat. high proof really comes through to make this a fantastic sipper. The aroma on this is just phenomenal.

Aroma: Spicy cooked agave - almost like chewing on a piece of agave, it is so vivid. Slight mushroom straw funkiness. Aroma of jackfruit. Mineral effervescence. Floral and herbal notes, cut grass. Green olive. Flavor: A potent pepper and ethanol blast of heat - but carrying fruit, spice, and sweetness as well. Light vanilla and cinnamon fade in and out. This leaves some fire on the back palate and esophagus. Not real viscous. Finish: A little hot and kicks like a burro. But what a ride.

Inside rear label says Batch 01. The Agave Angustifolia, colloquially called Chato provides a different nose than the Agave Azul that is also produced and bottled at Fabrica Santa Rita. Nose has some earth and mineral elements carried by the 46% ABV. On the palate it is easy to sip with earth, grass, roast chato and surprisingly a mild alcohol experience for the higher ABV. Some nice sweetness that lingers as the finish fades.

Sweet agave nose that is almost buttery. Mint and cinnamon. Nice pepper note on the palate with a medium length finish. Mint shows up here, too. Totally unique and satisfying for a change of pace.

Aroma: vegetal and citrusy. Agave and very light smoke as well. Taste: matches the aroma exactly. Just the slightest hint of smoke. Agave is the front and center along with strong vegetal overtones. Finish: awesome peppery finish (medium length for me). Overall: absolutely love the chato. I’ve read other reviews that say smoke is front and center but I’d say it’s only mildly there. Just an awesome expression. It can be pricey, but I have a hard time knocking them for that considering how much I enjoy this expression.

LOT: BH30-06 View: transparent. Good tear adhesion to the glass. Freshly served; Aroma: lactic and sweet, an incredibly pleasant smell. It's so lactic that it reminds me a little like buttermilk or cream. Cooked agave accompanied by green notes, such as cilantro. Taste: very sweet and then herbal and at the end a little citric, like discreet orange oil that lingers on the tongue and palate for a long time. A little mint coming out of the nostrils. Cooked agave and black pepper, a light and discreet chili. I oxygenate it and let it sit for 25 minutes to let it open. Aroma: It seems quite similar to me when it was just served, but now I detect some aromas that remind me of tanned leather, which in the shoe industry is called “blue”, without being unpleasant. It remains tremendously lactic, I even detect something similar to butter. Taste: Very sweet while still being herbal and lactic notes in the middle and end, it seems to me that the aftertaste is mainly lactic. A little oniony. Cooked agave. Very nice. Blind tasting.

Another fantastic expression coming out of the Los Valles region from El Caballito Cerrero. The influence of Mezcal is prominent in this agave spirit, so to those who prefer tequila’s flavor profile be prepared! On the nose cooked agave, smoke, white wine, and musky. Pronounced flavors of cooked agave, smoke, spice, vegetal notes and other minerals on the palate. Long and dry finish.

It’s a fine spirit. Has a bitter dry, spicy finish as others have mentioned. Not really my cup of tea.

Very similar to the azul but with less notes on the nose for me. Still getting a touch of grape then anise and mild smoke as the main focus. Easy sipper for the proof. Love to pull out the Chato when I'm in the mood for a different profile than most tequilas. The price point brings the score down for me.

Let’s be upfront about this. It’s smoky. Think of a smoky whisky, a very smoky Scotch or a mezcal. If that is your flavor profile, go for this. If not. You will be disappointed and wish you had bought 2 bottles you enjoy. This is smoke from the open through the finish. The other flavors are minimal and marginal. This is a growth/experience product. Try it but have someone else buy it if you are not a smoky person. It’s okay if you don’t like smoky. Most people don’t. I’m glad I tried this but I wouldn’t purchase again.

I’m not a fan of the smoky flavor. But it’s a decent agave spirit.

The Mitchell - Dallas Distinctive aroma, smokey. Taste is okay for me, just not a fan of smokey.
