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.
Color label. It was amazing. Probably the best blanco I’ve had.
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.
Acquired on may’19, for the German market Ringsherum. Nose: initially very herbal, grass, floral notes, spicy, 8 star anise, very aromatic. Palate: for a second the ethanol stand out, but balances and floral notes appear, raw agave, anise, slight agave sweetness, a hint of black pepper. Finish is medium to long, raw agave and floral notes persist.
Little smoke on the nose with mint. Cooked agave for sure. Honey on the palette, soft notes of vanilla, pepper a little lavender as well.
A little different flavor profile than your standard Tequila but very appealing. A little smoke, fruity, cinnamon. Nice combination of flavors that work well together.
We’ve been struggling to find this anywhere and came across it in a tasting bar in Puerto Vallarta. The label doesn’t exactly match as what we had was black on the seal but said agave not chato. I was really impressed with the 40 and this fell a little short for me in comparison. Just not quite as complex or smooth. Still a great tequila though!
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.
Reminiscent of Fuenteseca Cosecha 2013
Aroma- lovely aroma of agave (that is more vegetal and smoky smelling), light citrus perhaps grapefruit Taste- the first couple seconds is sweet and then vegetal smoky agave hit Finish- very smooth for a 46%, pure chato agave
sweet spicy cooked agave earth minerals cinnamon green olive grass. mildly hot slightly sweet finish. purchased from sip tequila.
Not for newbies, lots going on here. Thick mouthfeel. Minerals, smoke, and jalapeño on the nose & palate. Cinnamon hits mid palate and carries through to a long hot finish. Very complex, many more layers not mentioned. Hard to find, grab it if you see it!
vegetal olive nose. dare i say bandaid scent. not in a sweet way but..honey nuts, apricot, butterscotch, popcorn, cinnamon to me. earth. Excellent explosion. fantastic.
My 1st taste I wasn't too sure about this but the more I drank the more I really started to like it. Very distinct flavor. I recommend!
Hot, but enjoyable.
This is a unique Agave spirit… The nose and mouth are so good. For me I get a sweet mineral flavor and enjoyable spice finish. It’s like a night in the ring with a good worker and your finish hits perfect for the 1, 2, 3…
Tasted at the distillery December 2019. This is really good and different than the azul. I like the azul better than the “chato”. But this has lots of great flavor.
Distinctive. Comforting. Something else.

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).
