1123 just seems to slay everything they make! I tasted this blind and the higher proof was well hidden. N- blast of agave, fresh herbs, lemon, white pepper, wet earth T- whoa. Cooked agave, minerality, more fresh herbs, seeded jalapeno, lemon rind MF- medium body F- medium in length and everything dissipates at just the right moment V- $65 in Michigan makes this a decent value considering how much this made my mouth happy

Nice bright agave nose. Signature cascahuin. Long legs on the glass. Easy going palate with not a ton of flavor but turns into a sweetness on the finish with a lingering heat and a slight bitterness but not with every sip. It’s nice but doesn’t dethrone Palo Verde.

Very vegetal, earthy, lots of agave. It’s complex, a lot going on with this one. I will have to try again, but I highly recommend.

1123 usually can’t do anything wrong in my book but this plata wasn’t the one for me. Too much ethanol and vegetal on the palate. I will definitely revisit this again.

2nd night: The aroma presents a familiar array of scents, including cooked agave, anise, and minerality, which set the foundation for the olfactory experience. Subtle undertones of cooked sweet potato, citrus, and peppermint add depth and complexity, while a interplay of light ethyl and alcohol notes, alongside hints of vinegar and olive, contribute to the overall aromatic profile. On the palate, bold notes of anise and minerals take center stage, providing a robust flavor foundation. Flashes of butterscotch and cooked sweet potato add layers of richness, while the presence of peppery ethyl and an alcohol note inject a subtle warmth and intensity to the taste. Additional nuances of berry, bitter dryness, vanilla, and candied peppermint emerge, contributing to a multi-faceted palate profile. The finish unfolds with a fading pepperiness accompanied by vegetal undertones and a subtle dryness that adds depth and texture to the overall sensation. The clinging delicious minerality serves as a final reminder of how much I enjoy tahona crushed agave.

The third Lagrimas tasting of four. Although it was not my favorite of the bunch, I preferred the 2022 Palo Verde & El Chiqueño just a hair more, I still have nothing but praise for 2023’s El Sabino. This year’s installment in the Lagrimas line is a charming agave forward sipping experience with subtle vegetal, herbaceous, and earthy notes to uncover with a mineral backdrop. A noticeable anise and mint is present on the nose & finish. Upon second tasting I found that I enjoyed El Sabino Blanco even more than my initial impressions. In hindsight, it goes toe to toe with the previous two Lagrimas editions. I’ve gotta say I’m at a loss for words, this relatively new Lagrimas lineup is a serious player in the industry & I can’t wait to see what’s next.

This one has a great nose. Very vegetal, mineral rich, and with an excellent balance of fruity, floral and citrus notes. A little bit of funk on the finish, too, which is unexpected. Maybe that will dissipate as the bottle opens up. As always, Another win for Lagrimas Del Valle!

Burst of sweet bitterness with an off-taste. Very oily mouth feel. Not as crisp as the Palo Verde. Was hoping the 40% brix would have superceded the PV. Nice long finish but too bitter for my liking. | Update after bottle opened up: getting a mushroom note.

Best Lagrimas batch yet. As soon as I smelled it, I knew I was going to be in for a treat. Had that signature Cascahuin nose, a heavy hit of cooked agave, wet earth, cinnamon, minerals, tiny bit of anise. Palate was the same with tons of sweet agave and a the tiniest bit of vanilla. An extremely long finish. Bravo to the team at Cascahuin and Altamar brands!
