Light wood and wine barrel notes. The agave shines here. Cooked agave, light red fruit flavors. Very balanced.

Floral, agave, sweet red wine, and hay on the nose, this smells great! I taste nice notes of agave and black pepper. Flavor is a notch below the amazing smell, as its got a slight bitter twang like over tart fruit. Nice legs but the finish is fairly short.

Cooked agave, minerality, grapes on the nose. Cooked agave black pepper , minerality grapes on the mouth… long finish

Lightly floral with a clean minerality melded with cooked agave aromas on the nose. Light sweetness on the palate, mild and pleasant. A dry finish with a delicious burst of agave and light pepper, mixed with lingering floral notes. Update: On a blind test, detected more bitterness on the finish.

a nice marriage of a slightly high-proof blanco and a Bordeaux Wine barrel. It's fruity and floral, and it's unique and well made.

Aroma: Cinnamon and spice. Anise and vanilla Fruity, apple, plum and ripe berries. Flavor: A mineral spritz to the palate. Agave, almond, licorice. Subtle pepper that gains traction as it opens up. A rich buttery/salty feeling on the tongue. A very easy sipper - but still has enough going on to hold your attention. The brief barreling in Bordeaux casks creates an enigmatic profile. The total package works. Finish: Short but pleasant. A hint of tannic bitterness.

This Blanco has been rested for 29 days in wine barrels from Bordeaux, France. That gives this Blanco tequila a very pretty rose gold hue. I first smell agave and minerals before a floral fragrance appears. The fragrance is light and sweet with a hint of red grapes. It’s a very pleasant experience. I taste the agave first and foremost but simultaneously some minerality and muted pepper appear. Throughout the sip there is a hint of a juicy red plum and grape notes that continues into the finish. The pepper quickly gives way while the sweetness stays. The finish is short but it it leaves you wanting another sip. If a tequila could be light but flavorful and simple why still having complexity then this is it. Every Blanco and Reposado lover should have this tequila in their collection. Salud!

First impression is that the nose is excellent, but also a bit more pleasing than on the palate. The palate is definitely delicious, though. I've not had many blancos rested in oak, but this is definitely nice. Suave's lunar rested blanco comes to mind. Great creaminess that I associate with the process at Cascahuín. The wine barrel adds a dynamic to the tequila that I'll have to study more to better appreciate it.

Fun! Different. Bravo to those in life willing to take risks and try new things. Tasting notes to follow. I’ll have to sit with this longer…

Earthy sweetness. The agave is there, clearly, but it’s more rounded off and I’m getting something like a custard, maybe flan. On the palate, I’m immediately struck by how little heat there is for an 82 proof tequila. Very oily and almost creamy, lots of agave. This one evolves quickly, I’m getting earthy and olive brine notes, reminiscent of Fortaleza for me. But then my next sip is all agave and maybe a hint of grape. A very dry finish, clean and the earthiness lingers. This is definitely a good tequila. It’s tasty, drinks super easy, and it has a simple complexity to it. On some sips, all I get is cooked agave, in others I get that earthiness and olive brine, and the barest hint of grapes. No two sips were the same for me. Very interesting, but at $75 + $15 for shipping + taxes, you’re looking at nearly $100 per bottle and that’s where it loses points for me. I wonder if this would hold up as well in blind tastings.

Agave really shines through on the nose. There’s a nice citrus aroma along with some oak and a healthy amount of vegetal aroma. The flavor is very well balanced. An agave sweetness comes through. What I love is the grape/fruitiness that comes through so well. This tequila is so easy to drink. Refreshingly light but also a juicy mouth feel. It’s a pleasure to drink.

Aromas of wet earth, mint, hay, slight olive, and definitely a touch of wine grapes from 29 days spent in Bordeaux barrels, but the Cascahuin blanco elements are what shine. Sweet cooked agave in the mouth with a touch of black pepper in the back, and medium oiliness. No real finish, but this one sure is easy to drink!

I guess a tequila can be both simple and complex at the same time. This is a totally different flavor profile for Cascahuin, which has just been on a roll with great releases. This one has a lot of agave, fruit, grapes (from the wine casks it rested in), some butter and hay in the back, but lots of natural sweetness to make it delicious. The finish is short and clean (“smooth!”) which makes this insanely easy to drink. It has a slightly dry finish and lingering mouthfeel. I’m going to buy a case of this if I can!

Lot 237. Take Cascahuín blanco… add some rose water to the nose, palate, and finish, and you end up here. Pretty darn nice.

LOTE 237, bottled 300522. Color: very pale yellow. Nose: intense sweet cooked agave! A touch of wood note, minerality. Light citrus & a hint of grapey notes. Floral aromas. Palate: intense sweet cooked agave with wood spiciness that doesn’t overpower, clean & fresh. Good sweet & sour balance like a grapefruit, a combination of sweetness, citrus and bitterness! Finish is medium to long, sweet cooked agave, citrus and enjoyable bitterness persists! Wow!

Second Lote limited to 1,400 bottles. Out of Cascahuin distillery. N: Minerals, citrus skins, Oaky/Anise, Agave, Vegetables/grassy, Smokey, Pepper. Sawdust/Musk T: Cascahuin! Mineral, citrus, apple skins, dried pineapple, light red fruits/berry, Anise, Fresh Oak, Dry. Disconnect it’s a Blanco with huge Oak influence that overtakes the Agave. But that’s what makes it unique and worth trying.

Montagave tasting 10/11/22, again 10/15, 10/22 the more I drink these, the more I like them both. they are sooo easy to sip, especially lote 2... Lote 1 Darker pink color Nose: agave, fruit, and red wine (on the right nostril, to the left side of the glass) Palate: sweet agave with some fruit, a little heat Finish: medium, dry, with a little fruit and some warmth that lingers. just how I like it. Viscosity: thick but not too thick. Very good Lote 2 Lighter color Nose: agave forward with some anise Taste: sweet agave, fruit, a littl4e pepper, seems a little hotter than lote 1, in a good way Overall comparison between lotes 1 and 2: They are both quite good. I get more wine notes with 1. I like 2 better = sweeter more agave with anise, less wine notes. With 2, the finish is a little hotter, more peppery, in a good way. Legs on both are good

The aroma is rich and buttery. There’s a touch of smoked meat and woodsy earth on the palate along with bright, tangy blueberry, spicy cinnamon, hay, fresh green herbs and honey.

Agave forward, with a tangy wood finish from the wine barrels. Very smooth, buttery mouth feel. Subtle might and clean finish.

A nice fruitiness from the Bordeaux wine barrels, with a little bitterness and burn in the finish.

Montagave (NOM 1123) NOSE: Cooked succulent sweet agave, florals, jalapeño-type pepperyness, light lemon-rind, grassy/mint, and bourdeaux wine oaky barrel notes, licorice. TASTE: Good juice on the palate that is equally expressive of the aromatics. The barrel oakiness is just a bit more subdued on the mouth. Creamy mouth feel, and a nice balanced alcohol influence that allows the agave and bourdeaux influences to finish pleasantly... great sipper, indeed!

I really enjoyed this tequila, so much flavor, especially if you let it sit for a few minutes. Cooked agave, black pepper, some spiciness and o get a woody finish. Great stuff.
