Butter, earth, agave, citrus, minerals, vegetal Notes, and even a hair vanilla. Very good, not over complex.

I got this because of the high praise this panel/community rated it. They were not wrong. The aroma and taste (lightly sweet) are really good. The finish has a little burn that is nice. I couldn't register the Lot no. on this one > 50-B

As a previous bourbon drinker, I tend to prefer the flavors picked up by the barrels so usually avoid non-aged spirits.. this offering totally flipped my opinion on that!! Enjoyed the agave taste!!

Wanted to see what all the fuss was about. It's certainly about something great! Very smooth, almost no burn at all. Nice citrus flavour. Well worth the hype. Underpriced in fact. This is one of the best blancos I have ever tasted, definitely the best I have had in the price range. Strong agave notes in nose and taste. If you like tequila, you owe it to yourself to buy this. Too bad this isn't sold where I live!

Smell reminds me a bit of silly putty. Agave is there but not ripe or maybe something else is wrong with this specific bottle. Not very pleasant. Flavor is pretty flat. Need to taste again and update my rating.

Amazing tequila. Very mellow aroma, like spring water with hints of grass and agave. Taste has almost no burn with flavors of agave, grass, pepper, and orange peel. Super smooth finish with a delayed onset of cooked agave that bursts through after a few seconds. By far the best tequila under $100.

Very good, one of my favorites for casual sipping or before a meal. Fantastic aroma and incredibly smooth without a lot of aftertaste.

finally, I get a chance to sit and enjoy the 3 brothers of Fortaleza. I've drank a lot of this over the last year, but never had the opportunity to write about this fine tequila. with a clean, beautifully sweet aroma I can smell the freshly cooked agave as if I'm standing on that little cobblestone road right now. the nose is agave, sweet citrus and a tiny bit of pepper. it hints at the beauty to come. I drink it slowly to savor the light as air taste. no burn, no flinching, just pure tradition in a glass. the taste of mexican agave. amazingly, following the agave, citrus and floral notes, there is a hint of butter and honey as the tequila exits your pallet in a quick vanish. uncompromising purity.

Taste is pure agave with a clean finish, alcohol burn builds though with each taste. Only had blanco so far and expect great things from Reposado and Anejo.

4/29 (blind) Great blanco, definitely would consider this a value. Great agave, decent structure in the mouth. Slightly hot on the finish but burns off quickly, strange eucalyptus after taste that turns in to plastic. Lot 27 was not my favorite of the blancos

Beautiful presentation and a elegant, sippable tequila. Really reveals the terroir of the agave. Mineral, spicy.

Eggplant and antipasto. Oily on the tongue. Enjoyable but only an occasional drink
