Had somewhat high Hope's for this and the añejo. Heat comes through with light agave. Not very complex. Notes are too subtle and although I enjoy HP blancos, the heat and salty pepper just overpowered everything else. Better HP blancos out there i.e. Ocho, G4, Cascahuin plata & Tahona, Gran Dovejo, Terralta etc. most for less...

Light smoke on the nose, citrus and spice, light heat, balanced flavors. Very enjoyable, opens up nicely. Cooked agave notes, earth, minerality, tried fruit, light pepper, and citrus

49% ABV Tasted at Bowl of 'Zole fest 2022. Could only take short tasting notes. Aroma: Smoke, citrus, cooked agave and anise. Flavor: Hint of smoke, pepper, cooked agave, anise/licorice, citrus, jalapeno and mineral. Buttery mouthfeel with generous heat at 49%, but it is extremely well balanced. Wakes the tongue and lingers on a long finish. A very rustic high proof blanco. Not available in NY yet, I'll definitely buy it as soon as it does

Really liking this. Nice smoke that’s not over powering, agave, and a fruitiness like green apple that shines through. L

The family at NOM 1477, where Amatiteña is produced, has taken a unique approach in exploring different components of the tequila process. Their automatic-tahona, blew our minds, due to the engineering aspects behind it, but also the passion showcased by them to develop a profile while taking an innovative approach and respecting the artisanal tradition. We invite you to read our tasting review below. Blanco Origen (High Proof) Aroma: As you indulge into this high proof tequila (49%), you will experience a burst of aromas, whew all the layers work in a synchronized manner to provide a very enjoyable and complex profile. Due to their innovative process of being cooked in a steel oven with a direct flame, you would think it's mezcal, but be patient as it will take you through a unique journey. Please see aroma notes: roasted agave, light smoke, butter, caramelized walnuts, sweet dried citrus (as the orange peels from Trader Joes), melon, jalapeno/celery, black pepper, mineral, with musty and yeasty nuances. Flavors: We recommend letting the tequila 'breathe' for a couple minutes, while doing so also analyze how the flavor profile develops into indulgence. As you dive in, you will notice the aromas perceived before, are now mellowed in a positive manner. The roasted agave sweetness remains as it’s the stellar component, then evolves in sweet and savory taste of roasted pineapple, olives, sweet citrus (orange/mandarina) and licorice, that quickly transforms to spiced up notes of anise, clove, white pepper, with a very enjoyable finish of butterscotch & toffee notes. You will be amazed, we promise! After a couple sips, the smokiness that people might not be used to at the beginning, will dissipate and become part of the sipping experience. Texture is mouth-coating, with a medium to long finish that does leave a lingering memory.

This 49% ABV wasn’t too hot. I picked up mint, red hots?, sweet agave, light smoke—this was good for sipping but I’d imagine it would really pop in a cocktail! I enjoyed this during a tasting event at Osito’s Tap in Chicago. Very small sample where you can’t really pick up aromas. I’ll need to revisit a larger glass and see how my notes and ratings may change. But since there aren’t many ratings for this I wanted to leave some initial thoughts.

Lote A0100522, Bottle # 280 Nose: A burst of fresh citrus - fresh oranges and lemons & lime rinds. Dried candied citrus. Anise, nutmeg and a mellow vanilla note. Drippingly sweet agave brings hints of smoke from its wood fired horno cook. A faint metallic/mineral aroma. Barely noticeable lactic. Vivacious, yet a cohesive aroma profile. Flavors: A swaggering, boisterous entrance. Old fashioned, hard button licorice, a heavy grind of black pepper, a dash of salinity, fiery cinnamon and a punch in the face of agave. All delivered in a mouth filling, buttery package. Finish: The 49% ABV is integrated flawlessly in this high proof, making it dangerously easy to drink. Origen is a rustic but balanced sipper that lingers and lingers.

Bottle A01 00522 Super rustic product with wood fired agave roasting, tahona milled, natural (wild) yeast fermentation and copper pot distillation. Once the initial funk in aroma and taste passes with some small sips to warm up the palate this has an 48% agave fruitiness that I don't see from anything else around. This isn't just a few flavor notes, the whole profile is as unique as a Calle 23 Criollo or Fuenteseca Cosecha. Compares ABV wise to the Criollo yet reminds me of the SV Ancestral with notes of wood smoke and ash and the alternate cooking used for both. Now that I think about it this is similar to the La Luna Tequilana mezcal release particularly the Sergio Cruz assisted lote 01. Made in Michoacán.

This is super rustic and real. There’s smoke, agave, and a musty aroma to this. There’s also this particular type of aroma that comes from real wild yeast that is present here. Flavor is naturally sweet, with a huge amount of agave and smoke. Finish is just straight up agave that hangs there. At 49% abv, it drinks like a 40% tequila.

Beautiful smoked agave, pepper and anise predominantly, but still citrus and a little briny taste. This is my new favorite high proof Blanco.

On nose I get some fruit, dark cherry, wet tobacco leaf, cigar, light vanilla. On taste there is some sweetness, some smoke, wet tobacco leaf, cigar, fresh cut grass pops in and out and back to the tobacco. No alcohol on nose and definitely doesn't drink like an HP. This one is different and I like it more the more I have it. Love the process detail on bottle and handwritten parts. | LOTE LA0130922

Amatitena Orogen Blanco Bottle 712 Lote L A0130922 Field LL Rosa's 2016 Summary: While priced a little high, this 98-proof blanco is a stunner as an artisanaly produced agave spirit. Nose: See Pepe Matz notes - he is dialed in on this one. Most importantly, this needs time to breathe. I had a better experience with a Denver and Liley glass than my traditional high proof glass. Taste: Damn exciting. Love the piercing sweetness, salinity, and mouthfeel. Again, refer to Pepe Matz notes. I opened this and was affronted with burned rubber and alcohol on the nose. After one night, this has turned into a true masterpiece. Exceptional in all facets.

Like a peppered, roasted marshmallow in a slightly buttery and mineral-y brine. Not really that smoky. Bottle is about half empty at this point, purchased Sept ‘23. Lot LA0130922

Wanted to like it, I really did. I enjoy mezcal and thought I would enjoy the smoke. But this….this is burnt wood, tar and gasoline. Putrid and undrinkable. Tried it straight, chilled, mixed into ranch water and other mixers. Tried it day 1 then after a week then after a month. Never improved.

On the nose heavy agave, some vegetal notes and slight smoke. Palate is very easy going even though it’s 49%. Agave pepper vegetal notes. All in all good but wouldn’t recommend cause of the high price (80€)

When I first tried this. I thought it was so bad. It tasted like burnt rubber. I had done a blind tasting with a friend and he ranked it number one (among heavy hitters like Caballito Azul, Chato, Wild Common HP, Siembra Valles HP, and Ocho’s Widow Jane.) I didn’t doubt that it was unique but for me it veered into “well I know why this is unique… because is disgusting.” Then I started to think about it, and my friends pour had been sitting out in his glass for about an hour… and decided to give it another shot. Wow, I’m glad I did. The next time I tried it the smoke had dissipated (not disappeared) and what came through was this incredibly rich honey like sweetness. That sweetness just lingered and lingered. I fell asleep that night and as I lay in bed drifting off, I swore I could just taste the finish, continuing through in its nectar like magnificence. Since then, I’ve been afraid to try it again, because that’s how I want to remember it. Edit - this is amazing in a traditional margarita. Not that amazing in a Tommy’s.
