On the nose, delicious agave, minerals and citrus. Definitely a sharp pepper, and some floral notes. I don’t feel that this is as earthy as standard 7L blanco. A little bit of cinnamon. On the palate, it’s an immediate hit of sweet agave and minerals. Some notes of banana that almost reminds me of some of my favorite rums. A little bit of butter, and some kind of spice that I can’t identify. It’s almost like cinnamon but not quite. Overall this is a delicious tequila and one I’d love to have a case of. At $60, I’d buy a case and call this a 10/10 on value because wits delicious. Getting up to $90, I’d say it’s priced close to what I’d expect for a tequila of this caliber. At MSRP of $129.99 (which I was able to get this for) I give this a 3 on value. To be honest, I see people paying $179.99-199.99 and having tasted it, I wouldn’t buy a single bottle. Even at MSRP I won’t be buying a second bottle. This is damn good tequila, and it’s got a unique flair, but when compared to Calle 23 Criollo or my current favorite Wild Common SS, nothing is drawing me into this and making me feel like I paid a good price. I bought wild Common on a good sale at $69.99 and I feel more consistently drawn to that. This doesn’t bring something wildly special to the table in the way that something like say, Cazcanes joven did with the malolactic funk and high proof. Even that was a $100 bottle with extra añejo mixed in. I really like this tequila and im sad that I’ll only have one bottle, but it’s just too expensive to justify in my opinion. If it was bottled at 46% or higher (I know they didn’t because of the historic proof) then maybe I’d be willing to give it more points. If it was a full on still strength, I’d actually say that MSRP is probably right. Very disappointed in the bang for your buck on this one. Wish I could rate it higher.

Wow!!! NOM 1120 - All natural flavor and aroma. Definitely no additives into this one. - Aroma: sweet cooked agave, marzipan, brine salt, earthy, anise, mineral, ripe banana, mint, lime, flower bouquet, white pepper. - Palate: sweet agave, light Chile pepper, olives, warm pepper, fruity and slight spicy. - Finish: exceptional, sweet agave, lightly peppery, anise, medium to long, and warm to the soul. - Only drawback is the price. At $199 for 700ml locally found in US, is steep and hard to justify buying a case or two.

Sweet heat. Cooked agave, anise/licorice, cinnamon, black pepper, green bell pepper, jalapeño. Cola and cooked agave on the nose. It drinks hotter than 42%. The finish is long and superb. This is an amazing tequila, but jeeze, the price. All the distributors and retailers are reaping the benefits of these "limited" releases. I'm just as guilty, but we're paying increasingly over-inflated amounts for these tequilas. Good luck finding this at the MSRP. Plenty of bottles were made, but the market is driving up the price.

This tequila absolutely smells great as it’s being poured into the glass…Wow!! There is so much old school character, tons of cooked agave with white pepper, citrus, on the nose and it just screams “vintage Los Altos”. Smells like the texture is going to be light on the palate (with enough experience you will understand this statement) which it is - this blanco feels thin but it explodes with flavor and character; white pepper, jalapeño pepper, citrus, melted butter, dry earth, cooked agave, and lastly, a touch of grapefruit rind. With a long and complex finish that tells a story, Decades (2022??) is a delicate but complex, machismo, and delicious tequila. If I can speak freely, I’d like to address the elephant in the room; the price. We’ve seen it retail in Mexico for $4000mx and up to $299 in the US. While the cost in Mexico is high due to unnecessary and excessive taxes that undoubtedly line the pockets of the politicians, I would have loved to have sat in on the marketing meetings about this as I know that Juan Fernando Gonzales had absolutely no interest in doing a project like this but I love how his son Juanfer has stepped in and brought Siete Leguas into the modern era of spirits sales with a limited edition product. While 70,000 700ml bottles (49,000L) is far from “limited” in the world of artesanal agave distillates, it is a start. I might as well state my displeasure of a 700ml bottle at this point as well. I absolutely do not dig the “shrinkage” which is happening in the spirits industry. But back to the meeting; how did they arrive to a price point of $129?? Is this a pure Criollo tequila or just made with some criollos?? If it is the former, I do understand a there would be a hell of a lot of criollo blue agave harvested in order to have produced 37,418L of tequila at 55% abv (maybe one or two agave per liter??), but I am still at a loss of how they arrived at the current MSRP. Now, if it was a 1L bottle at 55%, I would gladly shell out $100 per bottle on a case or two - especially if the texture was bigger, thicker, and creamier as I would expect from a traditional, puro tahona tequila. At $129 or there abouts, I will begrudgingly buy 2, maybe 3 bottles (over time) only because I absolutely love and adore Siete Leguas. And of which, I should already have a bottle in my possession (I was sent a 2 oz taster from a friend), but either Sazerac or RNDC have not gotten any product to my very good friends at Old Town Tequila here in San Diego. Not only that, but Siete Leguas had promised Old Town a proper amount of product for being one of their best accounts in the US but for some reason, they are only getting 10 of the 167 6pk cases allocated to California and they still do not have a single bottle!! Now, if there were only 7,000 bottles for the entire world, I would totally and completely understand. But no, there are 70,000 bottles with 40,000 of them sent to the US. I am not sure if this bottling of Decades is a product that is supposed to last for years - if it is, the folks at Siete Leguas should let us know. Or if it’s going to be a yearly/bi-yearly release - which seems most likely due to the harvested ranch being on the label and some other info I may have seen on the back label, they should also let us know. If their importer or distributor are just dragging feet…we’ll, they need to get at it. Due to price point, 0 points were awarded for value. If this was a $50 blanco, it would have garnered a full 90 points. At the end of the day, this is a proper and delicious tequila!

Value is lacking garnering a 4 from me due to the $175-200 retail price from several online retailers.

Agave, flowers, citrus, grass, and minerals on the nose. Great aroma! Flavors mostly follow but with some cinnamon punch. It’s only 42% but drinks like a higher proof with a spicy punch and nice tingly creamy finish.

Lots of herbal, cooked agave creamy notes in the nose, impressed on how the legs sticked around on my jarrito glass. Full of flavor, notes of cocked agave, Anis dominate up front followed by nice touch of heat and back end dominated again by herbal-earthy notes sticking around the pallet. Very nice for a 42%alc. bravo!

I'm adjusting this to a 95, from my original video review. Absolutely amazing and artesinal all around. This procedure gives off an herbal presence, along with citrus, butter, anise, mint etc. An absolutely stunning old time distillate, replica of 70 years ago, in this 70th anniversary edition. Using small Criollo agaves, and cooked in a traditional oven, fermented and distilled with fibers, and all copper... it doesn't get much better than this.

Flavors and aromas of cream, green bell pepper, jalapeño, black olive, minerality, and sweet cooked agave with a finish that is almost honey like. The aroma transports me right back to the distillery. Highly recommend.

Nose: Aromas bombard you the moment you pop the cork. Riveting, intensely sweet agave, with a touch of complementary acidity. Earthiness and minerals. Citrus, apricots and Rainier cherries. Ethereal floral notes. Subtle allspice, with bolder cinnamon and anise. Some herbal/vegetal elements: white pepper, thyme, mint and trace celery. A hint of olive and aged cheese. And back full circle to the incredible, intense criollo sweetness. Flavors: A flawless balance between sumptuous agave and pepper warmth. Crisp and clean. Spicy and fruity. Melted brown sugar and Chantilly cream. Unmatched palate texture: thick, silky, creamy, lush. Finish: Endless waves of sensations. Seamless transitions, harmony and finesse make this blanco exceptional. And back full circle to those luxuriously rich criollo agaves… Worth the price of admission.

Special edition, 70,000 bottles made in honor of the brand’s 70th anniversary. This is a bold and rustic product that is an example of what tequila is all about. Agave all the way through from start to super long finish. Agave, anise, herbal, earthy and some cinnamon aromas. The flavor is sweet sweet creamy cooked agave, with a thick and oily mouthfeel. And the finish is long and sweet. Seriously long finish. Here’s proof that you don’t need additives to make a sweet tequila. This is exceptional.

Tons of cooked agave, slight herbal note, cinnamon, faint (white pepper), amazingly sweet and oily in the mouth from the super mature agaves used. The finish is very, very long. Sweet cooked agave all the way.

A sweet agave bomb on the nose. Great mouth feel, long finish. So good. What Tequila should taste like.

Aroma hits you immediately with sweet cooked agave and citrus floral notes. Flavor is amazingly delicious and balances with the initial aroma of cooked agave, citrus, fruity, silky soft peppery bite. The sweet agave stays with you all throughout the long finish. I know it’s pricey but since it was gifted to me, it made the experience even sweeter.

Man this is sooo delicious. So elegant, balanced, viscous and complex. Thinking back I probably could have let it open up further. Roasted sweet agave from the criollo. Not as floral as Calle 23 criollo. Good amount of earthiness, pepper, citrus and minerality. I also found it more botanical along the lines of a gin Bombay Sapphire. Between a classic 7 blanco ,Calle 23 criollo and G4 108. Agave forward with surprisingly nice punch of blanco heat at the very end of a long finish.

Bot No. 49,422 LOT: L01-7D/22 260922 700ml 42% ABV Criollos 700ml Initial nasal impact is warming and drying. Big citrus nose - especially grapefruit zest. Cooked agave, floral - geranium, white pepper, all spice and mineral round out the aroma. Parmesan rind is picked up at the top of the glass. Buttery mouthfeel with generous heat. The flavor mirrors the aroma. Grapefruit zest and cooked agave dusted with white pepper carries over on the palate followed by anise and all spice. Some butter and cinnamon coat the tongue. Extremely long finish with the grapefruit zest, white pepper and natural sweetness from the cooked agave being ever present and reinforced on the retro nasal. This is the epitome of an old school blanco. Harmoniously balanced. The value rating takes a big hit (3/10). Paying $160+tax (and I understand others have paid more) for a blanco in a 700ml bottle is bordering ridiculous. Granted, Siete Leguas doesn't make this a habit and this is a magnificent blanco. It is definitely a top distillery for me. I just don't want to see tequila go in the same direction as whiskey/whisky, where every other bottle is a special release and the price skyrockets on the secondary market.

BOT. NO. 49,595 December 25, 2022 Nose: Green vegetal earthiness followed by white pepper heat, jalapeño and habanero spiciness, and a flourish of green bell pepper. Promising. Flavor: Almost identical to the nose. The triad of pepper heat, the abundance of the additional fire of the alcohol, fueled what is almost too much heat for me. I didn’t pick up any citrus, minerals, or any sweetness. Finish: More tongue scorching heat. Overall I feel it was lacking in agave presence throughout, until the lackluster finish, which was fleeting. I was expecting something akin to the Calle 23 Criollo blanco experience (which I am a big fan of)— but this was not it. I’ll come back to it at a later date and see how my perception might change, but as of today, I’m not impressed. 4 for value.

Really good tequila but not on par to Calle 23 and La Luna Tequilana (azul) lot 2 (1/2 criollo). I feel that the lower proof with Siete Leguas takes away some of the qualities that the other two have being near 100 proof!

Excellent experience. the price is much easier on the wallet in OH. 114.99. thus the value mark was higher for me. at 299.99 I see the issue. Have 2 bottles, one to drink, one to show.

We reviewed this release in Mexico prior to export, and wouldn’t alter a word. This is a beautiful 84 proof blanco Tequila with layers of cooked agave, citrus, red fruits, floral, anise and cooking spice notes. Crafted from 10 yr old agave criollos, 100% Tahona extraction (in line blanco is 50/50), this distillate is old school and stunning. Cheers.
