Love the nose on this well made blanco, cooked agave, anise, mint, light smoke, citrus, minerally …. On the palate light natural sweetness, citrus, earthiness . Nice finish.

Lot 02 | Lote #2 Incredible viscosity as it is being poured. Nose: Honeycomb sweet agave with a gentle hint of smoke. Cinnamon, nutmeg and mint. Peach, melon and citrus. A fragrant floral note: Jasmine? Gardenia? Chalky minerals and freshly cut grass. Far more floral and fruit focused than the first lote. And perhaps fewer herbal and vegetal notes. A round appealing nose. Flavors: The first sip is palate filling: viscous, sweet and salty. The second sip reveals fruit, cinnamon and anise, smokey paprika, almond cream and toasted nuts. Buttery rich agave with a contrasting touch of mint. Finish: A silky-satin balanced finish slowly melts away, leaving a few farewell spicy punctuations.

Very interesting. Very light nose, agave and some earthiness, a little fruit. I almost want to say smoke, but not quite. Has a hint of something like that general mezcal nose but faint. Very soft, rounded agave on the palate, with a little pepper. A bit of salinity, and some baking spice notes. Got this as a sample from a friend so I’m going to go 5/10 on value. Overall solid stuff, a step above everything I’ve tried at this distillery.

Lot 03 | LOTE 3 42% ABV Tasted at Bowl of 'Zole fest 2022. Could only take short tasting notes. Aroma: Mineral, cooked agave, cinnamon, slight smoke Flavor: Mineral, thyme, cooked agave, cinnamon, pepper, brine, citrus brightness and light smoke. Oily mouthfeel with sufficient heat and some smoke carries through. Not available in NY yet, I'll definitely buy it as soon as it does

Lot 01 | Nose:: clean and bright. Minty and citrus. Almost Ike the rind of a ripe grapefruit. A hint of an artisanal twist to it Taste: agave, smoke, warm long mid palate with a few herbal notes Finish: a bit of bitterness on the backend let’s you know it’s legit. I’m excited to see how this gets refined over time in the next few batches. This is fun. Something new and made by a crew willing to go out of their way to experiment. Cheers to that!

Aroma: heavy agave forward, mezquite wood that present smoky character, vivid citrus aromas that finish with a subtle layer of black pepper and light herbs/spices. Flavor: notes of smoked agave, black pepper, anise, herbal, citrus (lemon zest), grilled pineapple, sweet mint, green fruits (apple & pear). It definitely has a buttery entrance to your palate with a mineral depth. You can actually taste its complexity! The finish is clean and crisp that leaves an enjoyable aftertaste to keep sipping it. Slightly high price, but once you learn about the process you will understand why. Small batch :)

Not offensive. At least one person at 1477 can make decent Tequila annd in particular, this Blanco. Roast agave annd a nice mouth feel make this an easy sipper. Price is a little steep for a Blanco and value score reflects that.

I’m smelling agave, a touch of wood like trees in Autumn, a little citrus and some floral tones. On taste, I’m getting the agave shining bright, smoke, light pepper, minerals, and brine. Everything is balanced nicely, nothing overpowers. The legs are long and the finish lingers enough. Very nice traditional tequila from Alberto Partida, definitely worth a try.

I smell creamy buttery agave that has a vegetal undertone and some light pepper. There are some floral notes along with some mineral notes with hints of brine and green olives. There’s a faint hint of smoke and mint. The nose is full and layered. On the first sip I taste agave and smoke. I then get a peppery and creamy mouthfeel. I taste earthy minerals and a pleasant alcohol tingle from the 84 proof. The finish is warm, round and oily with a lingering smokey and peppery tingle.

Lote 01 Aromas: Bright and vivacious light colored tree fruit, and slightly smokey agave at first pass. Lemon/lime citrus aromas, cinnamon and a fresh minty note. An herbal medley: lemon thyme, sage, dill and a combination of finely ground black and green peppercorns. Earthy minerals and a growing level of smoke add interest and depth. Flavors: Bold fruit notes. Buttery, briny, oily mouth feel. Smokey, honey sweet agave, warming pepper heat, assertive spices and anise - all make for a vibrant and clean tasting experience. Finish and notes: The finish is round, warm and balanced…. It fades away slowly and satisfyingly. Kudos to Don Alberto.

Meal like - because of fire flame while making - has a sweetness that turns to Smokey not as strong smoke as a mezcal - really nice - “sweet southern heat”

Lot 01 | Lote: L A0110522. Unique blanco. Has some characteristics of Bacanora or Racilla. On the nose pepper with some raw and cooked agave. Mineral notes as well. On the mouth, large amount of smoke with the agave and a finish with tingle of pepper.

Lot 03 | Lote: L A0030921, I am not sure if this is lote #3 but it starts with a number 3. Bottled on 15-10-2021. Predio: El Novillero, jima 2021. Aroma: light cooked agave, linaloe wood from Michoacán, lemon & lime, wood aroma that is too invasive and too smoky like after firewood is extinguished and smoke comes out, herbaceous and green. Palate: strong wood aromas that is invasive, covers up agave notes, green and herbaceous, fresh, lemon citrus, light agave sweetness appears at the very end. Feels unbalanced. Finish is long, the smoked aromas and light agave notes persist.

Enjoying this Amatitena blanco, I would say this might be the most pure expression of soil type I've tasted in a while. There is an ashy nature that is pretty captivating, exotic wood notes on the nose, incense, and green peppercorns. Big spicy palate, mineral finish. If fruit is in this it's burnt fruit. Cerebral.
