Really enjoy the nose once it opens up, didn’t love it immediately after pouring. palate is nice. Nice heat and pepper. Finish is long. This is surprisingly nice. Points removed for price

A nice balance between agave sweetness, citrus and pepper. You can smell the classic siete leguas character but with more agave intensity and less roughness in its character. However, this is definitely overpriced, especially when you consider other high-end blancos. Nice to have a bottle but it is very unlikely I’ll purchase another one.

Agave, citrus sweetness, herbal aromas. On taste it was equally balanced with agave, herbal and minerality. A little burn on the back end, but smoother by the 3rd sip. Definitely a great tequila and even with the price a good value. Don’t buy just to put on it on your shelf. Drink it with friends.

While this is a Special Release it isn’t the limited release that they claim. 70k bottles were produced using 700ml bottles. This blanco is made using wild agave and it’s 100% tahona crushed and bottled at 42%ABV - 84 proof. - I love the nose. It shouts clean well-made additive-free traditionally made blanco. Immediately I smell earthy minerals and cooked agave with some pleasant alcohol vapors. There’s some white pepper and lemon-lime citrus. The more it opens up and the more I nose it I start picking up some mint and grass. It’s slightly vegetal but with the softness of floral notes. It’s not overly complicated but it’s SOLID. - While sipping I taste the buttery cooked agave along with some natural sweetness. Once I consume the sip the pepper appears. It’s not overpowering, it’s pleasant. There’s a mix of white and fresh jalapeño peppers that meld to give it some heat. The creamy agave is also present on the mid-palate. It has a full-bodied mouthfeel. There are some slight earthy and vegetal notes with some light overlying lemon-lime citrus zest notes and a medium finish. - This is a great blanco and it can be found if you’re looking for it but it’s going to cost at least 120. I love the tequila but not the price. - ¡Sorbe sabiamente!

Has a lovely, subtle smokiness, agave forward, touch of caramel…perfect sipping blanco.

Well I was looking forward to this one for awhile and I have mix emotions. I like it but I don't love it. I just think the price is what through me off. It is a special one and coming from Siete Leguas I was excited. The best thing about it is that is done the right way.

Special edition Siete Leguas, not actually the same flavor profile as their base blanco.This one has citrus notes, cooked agave and light heat. Not as earthy as Siete’s base blanco. The price is high, but a lot went into making these 70,000 bottle.

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 closer, but still too high. 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.

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.

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.

Nov 9, 2022 Siete Leguas 7 Décadas The 7L70 is excellent! Tho, I was able to try it at LATF, it was a small amount, and I was not able to give it the time it deserves.  Last night we opened it, poured it into our vessels and and let it sit about 20 mins before sipping. Here are my tasting notes... Nov 9, 2022 -Siete Leguas 7 Décades-  The longer it sat, the more flavors came through = roasted agave, minerality, some mint, cinnamon, volcanic rock, vegetal, brine, anise, black pepper. A little 'fiz' on the end with a warmth that lingers in a very good way. Overall, excellent, well-balanced tequila. I'm realizing that i really enjoy the "criollo" agaves. some points off for price

On the nose a ton of cooked agave. I personally don’t pick up any citrus. It is very earthy, herbaceous, grass and salty!

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.

Nose of certainly cooked agave but light lemongrass, herbs and faint latex (that's a good thing) then some soil and wet cement. Flavor is agave and minerals up front. Faint cocoa and ginger. Finishes sweet and floraly. Didn't send me like I thought based on reviews but I'm not experienced with Criollo other than the C23 so I'm probably a bit sheltered. With that, it is very, very good.

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!

Since the moment I received this package from Siete Leguas it felt unique, there was a joyful anticipation. Months before, I visited their distillery and they mentioned something wonderful was in the works… As I opened the box, an elegant and classy white cylinder box with gold accents held Siete Leguas latest creation. Unboxing it was such an experience… well thought text content, gold embossed emblem lid, kraft custom paper, and a history pamphlet… it just builds up the moment. Finally, I get to the bottle, it kept its classical branding with a minimal vintage touch and a new elongated bottle presentation that even the cork was customized with the distinct brand name: Siete Leguas. As soon as I opened it, this Blanco tequila aromatic bouquet intrigued me, but at the same time it transported me to the backroads between Jesus Maria and Atotonilco from this past summer during rainy season. The Los Altos’ petrichor (tierra mojada) is very pronounced as this profile opens up, with initial meadow notes that incorporate vegetal and citrus layers. As you keep indulging, floral notes make an appearance that once again circle back to those town backroads, to be more specific it’s the aroma expelled by the Rhus Trilobata (aka. Agrillo). For those not familiar with agrillo, is a red fruit berry endemic to Los Altos, with notes of lime, lemongrass and tamarind, which are flavors familiar to the Siete Decadas edition. Finally served on my Riedel flute and as I 'dance' with it on my glass, you can truly admire its bright and luminous appearance. As I dive in, the aromas previously described are amplified and make their buttery appearance in the first sip along with the stellar cooked agave ingress. As you continue sipping that cooked agave flavor is unified with those meadow, vegetal, citrus notes that start to harmonize and provide the following distinct flavors: lime, agrillo, lemongrass, thyme, sweet mint, flowers/floral, celery, anise, followed by tamarind and white pepper, with a mineral finish of limestone. This edition is 100% tahona-crushed at El Centenario Distillery. If you read this far, I wish you're salivating and craving this new edition, you will want to keep being part of Siete Leguas legacy and keep making memories with friends and family… Salud!

adjusted to a 93 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…

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.
