Excellent flavor with no burn. And poured for me by the man himself Guillermo. Fabulous!

Nice aroma of agave, mint and a slight floral note. Big burst of cinnamon as immediate flavor evolving to fruit and almond. Good complexity in the flavor. Medium length finish. The 46% ABV definitely adds some punch and nuance to this blanco. There is a little fire in the initial flavor but it settles out nicely. This probably becomes one of my first-choice blanco (along with 7L, Suerte, and Uno [1]). 03-24-2018

How do you make a great Tequila one of the best blancos on the market? Still strength! every thing you like about 80proof Fortaleza but more of it. loads of roasted agave and heat in the finish.

Excellent agave forward nose. The heat is obviously present, but not overpowering. Cooked agave through the finish. An excellent example of traditional, straight from the still blanco. As enjoyable as it gets.

This is probably the purest example you can find of what real lowland, tahona mill tequila tastes like. The higher proof brings the flavor through in cocktails too.

Amazing presentation of tequila in every aspect from start to finish. Strong forward cooked agave taste. Very earthy and complex. Picking up some Olive brine flavors.

Everything about this is big! Big nose, big flavor, big finish. Sweet baked agave and nuttiness is consistent from start to finish. Olive brine and earth on the palate as well. Mouthfeel is rich without being too oily. While there is slight alcohol burn, it's much more approachable than many 80proofs- surprising for a still strength spirit. Lastly, this is pretty expensive, so while I can't call it good value, it's definitely worth it. Lot 1 so that's cool too!

Lots of cooked Agave on the nose. Reminds me of standing near the tahona at the distillery. Great taste with long finish at the back of the throat.

More of everything you like or love about Fortaleza blanco. Caramelized agave in abundance on the nose and in the mouth with some added punch to the tongue and palate from the higher ABV. A bit of buzz to the mid tongue with lingering natural sweetness fades slowly. Stock up.

Almost like you're getting Fortaleza Blanco direct from the still... actually, you are. This is a great blanco in its purest form. Fruity, earthy, green olive, and agave. Great long pleasant finish. Super oily and thick in the mouth. This is the real deal, folks.
