G4 Blanco Fermentado en Madera is a special batch thats completely fermented in wood vats with fibers and it’s released at 45% ABV - 90 proof. This is a big deviation from Felipe’s usual fermentation in stainless steel tanks without fibers. These changes in fermentation will definitely change the final product. - On the nose the buttery cooked agave is dominant. The nose is creamy with a touch of spice. There’s some muted citrus and faint minerality. It’s not overly complicated but it’s very pleasant. - The palate resembles the nose. The buttery cooked agave is front and center. It’s creamy and spicy. The proof intensifies the flavors. The finish is spicy with lingering agave. There’s a pleasant earthiness that run throughout. This tequila begs you to take sip after sip! Saludcita!

Lots of agave on the nose and palate with a bit of heat and sweetness on the finish. Opens up nicely. Definitely like it better than regular G4

My go to vessel is a jarrito, best choice for high alc%. Lots of aromas full of flavor. Great as expected.

This is a unique G4 experience. Sure there's the usual G4 agave-forward and mineral laden nose and palate but this adds much more. I had to revisit this a few times during the last hour just to be sure of what I was working with and even used 2 different styles of glassware. N- Agave, citrus, mint, nutmeg, dusty earth, minerals. T- Baked agave, raw honey, black pepper, cinnamon, slight oak, more Minerality, earth, lactic acid, grass, and just a touch of ethanol but not much considering this is 45%. M- Oily and long legs left in the glass F- Medium-Long with a beautiful sweet and spicy finish with an underlying fruitiness. V- I had to have this shipped because I live in Michigan but it is such an interesting and well crafted liquid that it's worth every penny.

This is a special blanco from Felipe and 1579 lots of cooked agave, citrus, spice. High Proof, wood fermented makes this stand out from the regular G4 blanco

Soft, oily mouthfeel. Cooked agave, mint, black pepper, signature 1579 minerality. *chef's kiss* I'm glad I have backup bottles because this is a keeper and will be treasured in future years.

I mean, DAMN! Best new Blanco I’ve had recently. I’ll have to revisit and update my tasting notes when I grab a bottle, but for now I’ll just say that the aroma really pops, legs are long, and flavor is the best from El Pandillo so far. Amazing. Update: The nose on this is so good. I’m getting tons of agave with minerals, citrus, and a touch of anise…it just pulls you in. The higher proof makes an introduction on first sip with a nice zing and resulting finish. The same aromas come through on flavor, with a stronger anise presence and the introduction of cinnamon. I’m a big fan.

Slight sweetness on the nose. Cinnamon and cooked agave with a bubble gum aroma, but not artificial. Some earthiness and minerality. Hot on the pallet, slight fruity sweetness. Not a long finish but intense up front. Nice sipper!

Purchased online for USD70. It's a great G4 blanco, similar to the standard, with the difference being that the agave was fermented in wooden vats and the final product was bottled at 45% ABV. Vivid agave and minerality notes on nose and palate. Some alcohol on palate and finish that is more noticeable than the 40% ABV blanco.

Bottle 1367 labeled LEXP0001B45M. A bit of mint on the nose along with a ton of agave and a small amount of ethanol in the HP Jarrito. Liquid roast agave and natural sweetness are carried by the 45% ABV. Wow!! is all I've got lol. Felipe has done it again. His family genius as passed down to he and his brother is unapproachable in this day and age of crap marketed as tequila. Added a point because it is just that good.

Jan 3, 2023 tasted this before but just now rating it was really good straight out of the bottle and got even better as it opened up agave forward, some pepper, some heat, mint, nice long warm finish. I really enjoy the flavor profile from the wood fermentation tanks. absolutely delicious tequila, very well-balanced, just as a blanco should be.

Lots of Agave and minerality in this one. Some mint and slight citrus and anise. Not a huge fan of the hints of anise but that’s just personal preference. Overall a great blanco!

You can’t tell it’s slightly over proof This is good stuff Nose gives you the agave with a bit of a peppermint tingle and some sweetness Taste very much mirrors the nose. Great balance of flavors and good mouthfeel Finish is very pleasant at 90 proof Will be repeatedly drinking this!

Aroma is good and classic El Pandillo. Taste is a bit more minty-tingly. Strong and bold and really good.

This one’s special! As soon as I opened the bottle I got a whiff of peppermint that reminds me of the 2018 Fuenteseca (I saw another reviewer compare these two as well). That trademark G4 minerality is there, but I also get more bright and citrus-y notes compared to the standard version. Crisp, light, and sweet on the palate with a very gentle finish considering the higher proof. Overall, an excellent blanco.

Bottle 5510. Smells crisp and clean. Pepper, earth and minerals. Everything I love from 1579. I don’t pick up the wood from fermentation, but the mouth was somewhat thick for me and the finish was very long… 1579 rocks!

Wonderful tequila with great flavors of agave and minerals. The additional complexity from the wood fermentation is also awesome

Simply amazing!! Many online sites have this bottle at a great price and is totally worth it for the quality of tequila. This high proof, wood fermented makes this stand out from the regular G4 blanco. Nice agave, citrus, mint, and minerals on the nose. Baked agave, raw honey, black pepper, cinnamon, slight oak, minerality, earthy, grass, on the mouth feel that makes you want to go in for another sip. The finish is fantastic. The finish lingers with a beautiful sweet fruitiness and spice that makes me smile. It’s good!! Bottle 1841 of 10,000 45% Alc/vol (90 Proof)
