Great aroma (classic blanco) - agave is upfront and the star of the show. Also, strong vegetal and citrus notes. Crisp and clean…very nice. Everything carries over to the flavor - crisp open of agave and citrus that evolves into a peppery heat that is present but not overwhelming. Medium finish that lingers in a great way. 12/18/2023

Nice agave on nose, slight bitter palate. Easy finish. Little pepper on the finish. I like it better than the repo but it doesn’t stand out against other 1579 offerings. Update: Tried Lote 2 and enjoyed that much more. A solid offering

What a nice blanco. Nose changes as it sits. Nose- cooked agave, minerality, earthiness, little citrus like crisp green apple, some pepper Taste- cooked agave, citrus, minerals, little vegetal with a nice peppery finish

Nose: cooked agave, earthy, white pepper, pear, mango, orange peel, wet cement, jalapeño, fresh flowers, and some mint in the background Flavor: sweetness of cooked agave, tropical fruit, mango, pear, earthy, spice of white pepper, with a butter mouth feel Finish: long with peppery tingling, cooked agave stays with you. This rating is for lote 2 This will work with shrimp or scallops or in a tequila lime espuma

Lote 2. Delightful blend of cooked agave sweetness, mint, pepper. Noticeably thick mouthfeel. looong finish. A big winner.

Lote #2 Nose: Minerals and earthiness. Citrus tinged agave. Pineapple, banana, overripe mango and juicy fruit tropicals. Pear. Lightly dusted with nutmeg, finely ground green peppercorns and a dash of cinnamon. A medium robust nose. Flavors: Pepper heat builds momentum over the first several sips, marrying nicely with the ubersweet fruity agave. This has a layered fruit quality, unique among #1579s that I have tasted. The tropical fruit vibe follows from the nosing, but picks up some light orchard fruit along the way. The minerals are less prominent than on the nose. Sits nicely on the palate. A vague eucalyptus aroma on the finish. The pepper heat has been dialed down a bit from lote #1. RR 88.5 - 89

Another home run from El Pandillo! Roasted agave around every corner, ample mint and black pepper on the mid palette. Citrus and green pepper on a soft, gentle finish. This is an exciting new brand, I expect great things in the future.

Don Vicent blanco tasting date: Aug 1, 2022 tasting samples received from North Texas Tequila Club Nose: good nose well-balanced; crisp, subtle, fruit up front, then agave pepper minerality earth/clay (didn't get the vanilla that others speak of) Taste: agave pepper minerality, earth/clay Finish: easy, some agave, spice heat,.subtle but good. Finish was a little short/flat (maybe because this sample shipment took almost 2 weeks to arrive from Texas in 95 degree temps) Notes: very similar to terralta. I will try again at some because i believe the samples may have been altered by the heat. I rated 1 pt lower than terralta because of the flat finish, and again, this may be because the sample spent time in high temps

Another banger from 1579! Nose- agave, mango, grass, olive, clay, and wet earth. Taste- sweet cooked agave, earth, briny minerality, jalapeno Mouthfeel- oily goodness Finish- Medium/Long with some lingering spicy heat and dry to balance out any sweetness. Value- Sample provided but the price doesn't matter. These folks don't gouge and it's so good.

This is consistently good, it comes from the El Pandillo distillery. NOM 1579 on the bottle is always a safe bet.

On the nose, rich agave, minerals, and almost a touch of vanilla. There’s a green, vegetalness to it, and a light saline note. The flavors are so interesting. Cooked agave for days, tons of minerality and some earthiness, and a very distinct jalapeño note. I’ve always been surprised when people call that out but its 100% here, reminds me of my little jalapeño bush in our garden. Its so prominent that it almost tastes like an infusion, very clear. Delicious, full bodied blanco. Now if only I could track down a full size here in CA…rating 5/10 on price because I cant find much pricing info.

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.

I'm rating lot 2 the same as Lot 1, at a high 90 grade. Both are exceptional, and Lot 2 seems a little more fruity with a little bit more of a punch. I love them both

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.

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

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.

The aroma is absolutely incredible, can’t stop going back to it. Agave-forward with a bright and fresh burst of minerality and lime zest. Some herbal notes emerge over time (hard to pick which herbs) as well as green bell pepper. Palate is a touch more reserved than nose, but it’s pure el pandillo - agave, mineral, vegetal, a touch spicy. Id love to see a higher proof alternative down the road. Great finish. Well worth $49 in Texas.
