Not much to add to others comments except to say this Blanco smells just like El Pandillo...the porch for agave, the nearby ovens, milling and crushing, the juice pit for the mosto, yeast for fermentation. It's all here on the nose. Sipping brings a nice explosion of flavors carried by the ethanol, pepper, roast agave, a bit of earth and the minerals of the well water. Felipe has done it one more time.

Good minerality, vegetal notes, cooked agave, light pepper, earthy, well balanced. Another good one from Felipe

By production notes, this would be similar to Terralta with oxygenation. There are noticeable differences though. The oxygenation helps refine the aroma, which I actually prefer to the Terralta blanco. On the palate, this tequila is very pleasing. There are a lot of vegetal and green notes, and they are subtle and well balanced. The minerality from the deep well water also adds to the aroma and flavor. The finish is nice and peppery, also quite long lasting.

Bold mineral and grassy notes, very full mouthfeel. I enjoyed it very much, another good offering from El Pandillo. However, I could see this being too much for people that like the more gentle profile that G4 or Volans has. Kind of reminds me of the “Fibroso” experiment (although not as good). Thanks Don Pepe for the sample! Had the opportunity to revisit and the finish definitely improved on the blanco vs. the sample.

NOM1579 - El Pandillo I can smell the cooked agave and then some freshly sliced green bell pepper. There is some minerality and hints of black pepper and wet clay. Its a nice balanced and clean aroma with no detectable alcohol vapors. There is a faint floral note that keeps the nose on the softer side. Overall I’d described the aroma as sweet agave and earthy. On the palate I get buttery cooked agave and natural agave sweetness. Then I get some vegetal notes; green pepper, jalapeño. There a nice minerality throughout and some black pepper on the back end. It has a nice mouthfeel and finish. The oxygenation keeps the flavors nice and rounded while the pepper still punches through and lingers on the finish. I don’t detect any alcohol burn on the finish.

This is a very well round tequila. The more you drink the more you want. I can definitely smell the minerals at first glance then smell of agave hits smell very good. You can definitely taste the cooked agave when you drink it the sweet taste along with the minerals make this my favorite Blanco.

Another great 1579 product! Everything I’ve come to love from El Pandillo…that minerality and cooked agave front and center on the nose and palate, and it carries all the way through the finish. Mouthfeel is excellent- doesn’t dissipate too quickly, and coats the mouth to experience this wonderful Blanco. Salud!

Aroma: Balanced cooked agave with delicate earthy/grassy notes, along with the welcoming of white pepper, underscored by a layer of fruity/sweet tones. Flavor: A lively entry of cooked agave, subtle sweetness and herbal grass framework with mineral notes. As I kept sipping, the complexity that melted in my palate was delightful: right away white pepper and green pepper were present, followed by a mixture of green bartlett pear and apple. In addition, a citrus layer of orange and orange peel make an appearance. Personality: cooked agave, mineral/earth, grass Sweet: Sweet mint, bartlett pear, golden apple Citrus: orange, orange peel, Herbs: anise, mint, spearmint, licorice & herbal Floral: orange blossom Spices: White pepper & green bell pepper Process: Mineral No defects Texture/finish: The attack is friendly, buttery and with a NOM 1579 personality, through the midpalate you'll encounter a crisp sensation that spreads into sweet, citrus and spices notes (described above) that extends into a fresh mint/herbal finish. There's a minimal alcohol detection. Another great tequila from El Pandillo

Nose: Cooked agave, vegetal, earthy (West Texas after a rain) tones with slight hint of vanilla. Flavors: wet earth, vegetal, hints of black pepper and a skosh of vanilla. Summary: yet another outstanding Blanco from NOM 1579. A perfect blend of earthy and vegetal notes.
