Sticking with the 2021 puntas. I feel 2021 has more flavor than 23

Seems awfully light in aroma and flavor. I may revisit and tweak scoring. EDIT: Original score was 85. I have updated the aroma, flavor, and finish scores. The description on the rear label, written by Remy, is beautiful, but in these first few pours, I'm only getting a fraction of the notes listed.

This has a matalactic funkiness on the nose. However it does not overshadow the cooked agave nose, and minerality. The taste involves cooked agave (baking spices), citrus like grilled pineapples , slight light butterscotch type sweetness deep within. This is a nice blonco.

I’m out the outlier here. I don’t love Puntas. The brine isn’t my favorite but still an authentic offering. subtle nose with sweetness on the palate. Lots of brine and a peppery finish.

Close to the 2021. The 106 proof is definitely evident. White and black pepper, sweet cooked agave and citrus note. Great nose and mouth feel

Hard to believe that they could outdo the 1st Lot, raising the proof pushed it higher in every aspect! Great job!

Downgrading the 2023 to a 93. Unlike many others, I prefer the original by a hair. They both have a different nose and taste. I love a well-made quality Blanco, especially high-proof.

Nose: Immersive green grassy scents, pine, alpine freshness and warm citrus notes. Much like setting foot into the agave receiving patio as freshly harvested piñas are being dumped and chopped. Initial aromas meet and mingle with the heady fragrance of nearby cooked agaves just finishing the cooling down stage. Alluring agave aromas seep into your senses and linger. Molasses, sweet potato, spicy pumpkin. Cinnamon and allspice. Marzipan and vanilla bean flan. Tidal pool brininess. Bright and brimming floral top notes. Orange blossoms, tropical frangipanis, cinnamon dusted jasmine. A whisper of spearmint and bitter almond. Woody rosemary, fennel and celery. Earthy, gritty minerals. Flavors: Ancho chiles and cracked black pepper. Savory salinity. Glazed candied yams. Salted butterscotch. Almonds. Green apple, charred pineapple, tangerine zest and green field agave. Dark roasted Italian espresso and toasted cocoa nibs bring trace bitter nuances, and act as anchoring base notes. Bright, buttery, sleek.

A fantastic bottle that yes is expensive, but when you consider the process, is worth every penny. Nose: Cooked agave, black pepper, sweet grapefruit and alcohol Flavor: Delicious cooked agave and black pepper followed by some herbal notes. The first sip overwhelms with flavor. The heat is there, but it doesn’t take away from it. Finish: Long finish that lets delicate earthy and herbal flavors come to the forefront. It sits on the back of your tongue continues to evolve after every sip.

Nose: Rich agave sweetness, blends magically with the bright citrus notes. Subtle hints of pepper, cinnamon sticks, and earthy notes round it out Tasted: Roasted agave is dominant, with refreshing notes of pineapple, melon, mixed herbs (mint?), and subtle notes of white pepper provide a little heat. Finish: A cooling warmth lingers refreshingly on the tongue, with hints of fresh citrus and cooked agave sweetness.

The nose on this is almost second to none for blanco. All the suggested notes from the back of the bottle come through. Tasting brings me through a sweetness that starts and never stops, almost too over the top, but then mellows into the special puntas varietal that CC wanted you to experience. You’ll want to work your way to this blanco rather than reach for it first. HH knew what they were buying and the brand continues to be a top choice for availability, reliability and special picks.

Very agave forward on the nose. I also get citrus, black pepper and cinnamon. On the tongue, it has a nice sweet agave and then is followed by a big dose of black pepper. I get citrus and strong alcohol. The finish is very clean but a tad thin. Light viscosity. The ABV is the star here. This is what you think of when you want a traditional HP blanco.

Cooked agave, bright citrus, fresh grapefruit, salinity; mouthfeel similar to white wine. Delicate palate, takes a bit to open up, but when it does this overproof Ocho rivals the very best tequilas. Outstanding.

Very unique on the palate, with a distinct mineral I will have to revisit to fully define. Smooth finish for an over-proofed spirit. One of the most unique tequilas I’ve sampled early in my tequila journey.

Pepper on the nose with citrus and agave to boot. Smooth, silky mouthfeel with even more citrus, agave and minerality on the palate. Super smooth finish. Simply outstanding.

Excellent as expected… drinks more like 90 proof than 106. It has a full-bodied creaminess to it that is lovely. Tasted next to Volans Still Strength; both excellent… the Volans is definitely more mineral and the Ocho sweeter with heavy pepper notes. I slightly prefer the Puntas. Glad I bought an extra bottle, this one is a gem.
