Pretty ideal for a modern day tequila. A rare treat in a world of disappointing new tequilas. 46% is my sweet spot and it has a nice herbal and peppery finish.

Palo Verde 2023 Lote 338 27-01-23 Nose: Bright, aromatic spices. Cinnamon, anise, powdered ginger and dusty nutmeg. Jack fruit/ juicy fruit gum. Herbal notes, freshly mowed grass, and dried bougainvillea cuttings. Dry earth. Minerals. Full on agave sweetness with a hint of tag along acidity. Greenish pineapple, tangy mango, guayaba and perfectly ripe strawberries. Flavor: Cinnamon Grahams with a punch of pepper. A thick, velvety, sweet and salted collage. Creeping anise marries with the fruit and florals. It’s a bold profile showcasing agave and spice. And a bit more playful than some #1123 profiles. But not to worry about the 46% ABV….. the ethanol is well integrated and kept in check.

Another great blanco out of 1123! Aroma of salt brine, black olive, sagebrush, with an undertone of sweet cooked agave. Flavor has a burst of cooked agave followed by the very distinct cascahuin minerality along with a cayenne heat. At 46% there’s almost no burn either. Great blanco!

Lote: 338 27 01 23 Initial nasal impact is slightly warming. Aroma of cut grass, honeysuckle, vegetal and green/cooked agave. Maybe a hint of dried flowers. Mineral and wet slate or river stone followed by some pine resin (is this the wintergreen I pick up later?). Mouthfeel is oily with generous heat. Flavor gets some of the caramelized agave (maybe some burnt ends peek through), tropical fruit (guava), wintergreen, limestone, white pepper, honey........ and more honey. The retro nasal is such a friggin trip, it just keeps going. More complex than most. Not sure if I can recall a more rewarding retro nasal. This is a classic Blanco from NOM 1123...... but, as others from Salvatore and Chava, stand alone. Get it. Drink it

Lágrimas blanco 46 abv July 8, 2023 revisiting with a new bottle we just opened. let it breathe about an hour (because i got distracted lol) well balanced, agave forward, vegetal, minerality, citrus, pepper, some heat (in a good way), which you'd expect from a high-proof. Nice, long finish and legs for days!! let this one sit, and revisit the bottle a few weeks later. we expect the heat to dissipate some. May 2023 very delicious. sweet agave, vegetal, some citrus, the minerality we've come to know with cascahuin. muy delicioso

Aromas of cooked agave, sugar, light wet soil, and floral spice. Flavor, a real slow easing into a balanced, complex, medley of agave, light mint, minerals, pepper, and the faintest trace of green/jalapeño pepper in the finish. A real work of craft and next level maturity/complexities of tequilas as a whole and helps set the bar higher industry wide.

Gorgeous agave on the nose, this is classic 1123. Palate is soft and lovely with a nice pepper on the finish. Very easy to sip. Wow. I could sniff the nose all day. This is tequila.

On the nose it’s classic Cascahuin. Loads of cooked agave, with some minerals, hay, and grass. Tasting more agave, minerals, anise, mint, and pepper. It’s a little light in the mouth but the higher proof lingers nicely on the way down. Love the single estate and blending of roller mill/tahona crush, stainless/wood fermentation, and with/without fibers. Nice price point too. Fun project off to a great start!

Tasted at Casa Lotecito in Tlaquepaque this was overwhelmed a bit by the still strength Ocho but what wouldn't be? Great nose and flavor and a bit short on the finish.

This is 46%, but it sure doesn’t feel like it. I’m chalking that up to Cascahuín magic. Lots of cooked agave in the aroma, with hay, limestone, and mint. Flavor is more cooked agave and green olive with an anise and mint finish. This is a great example of what a real tequila is supposed to be.

Nice solid, beefy bottle feels substantial in your hand and has a user friendly neck when pouring. At 92 proof this 2022 palo verde blanco packs more punch and exhibits minerals, cooked agave, brine and white pepper. It's a very nice tasting sipper which goes down easy and can get you into trouble quick.

Nose- clean, mineral. Mouth is very nice, very nice mineral water forward with clean agave and minty zing. Short heat, and finish. Some grass taste . Very easy sipper. Great tears in glass. Open air and glass gets a little floral odor.

First of 4 Lagrimas tastings & also my favorite out of the bunch. Bold pepper, wet grass, salinity & fermented cheese notes. Cascahuin did something special with this offering.

Very peppery, and lots of heat, but not taking away from the agave. Burst of sweetness that settles fast, with an extremely long finish, which I enjoyed.

High end, specialty Plata coming in at 46% ABV from El Chiqueno fields Amatitan Jalisco by Lagrimas, Del Valle expression. Sweet Agave, Brine & Minerality of deep well water push out white pepper, grapefruit and vanilla notes. This particular Agave from El Chiqueno is pulling a very acidic, mineral from soil same brix 32% as Ocho Plata with less sweetness, which maybe due to deep well water and higher fermentation.

Nose is green herbal butter with fresh cracked black pepper, lime zest. Palate is so fun, front of the palate is sweet cooked agave and the velvety mouthfeel is immediately apparent. Mid-palate is buttery and peppery, tingling and a bit prickly. Finish is medium-long, mineral, and just lovely. Love this abv…just perfect to allow some extra agave punch, but still delicate. One of my new favs platas for sure!

LOTE 338, bottled on 27 01 23. Aroma: intense cooked agave with medium sweetness. Crisp clean green notes, minty, a whiff of dark flower aroma, a touch of brine, slight acidity, aromatic herbs, good sweet sour & acidic balance, feels thick & oily, after 30 minutes in the glass acitron smell emerges, not from smelling acitron but from the aromas perceived through retronasal after eating it. Palate: intense sweet cooked agave! Acitron, good sweet sour and acidic balance, although after balancing out it is slightly bitter, aromatic herbs, oregano, minty & fresh, green notes. Thick mouthfeel. Finish is long, slightly sweet cooked agave with aromatic herbs persist.
