NOM 1079- absolutely delicious tequila, and my favorite from 1079. The older ones are even better, but all the 1921's were fantastic.

NOM 1499 | Roasted agave is present off the nose, comes off a bit sweet but still enticing. Really peppery and old school flavour, I really misunderstood this when I first tried it years ago, it’s surprisingly elegant. I recommend giving it a try.

NOM 1499 | Nose: Minerals and bread dough. Agave, lime peel, hay and trace mint and cinnamon. Flavor: A caramel-like, chewy agave sweetness. Feisty pepper and cinnamon “red hots”. There is a slightly “ different” nuance to the end of the sweetness that I can’t quite nail. Maybe stale, soggy graham crackers? Not necessarily a flaw - but different. Finish has definite heat to it. It doesn’t take on any further complexities.

NOM 1535 | Nose: Fruity agave start. Ripe pitted fruits with clove and nutmeg. A hint of smoke. Flavor: Starts softly in the mouth. Then baked agave, vanilla and light pepper emerge. Some cinnamon makes an entry. Finishes with pepper and hazelnut.

Agave, spice with a bit of honey. Interesting but a bit harsh for my taste

Distinct aroma of agave with just a slight bit of citrus. Strong flavor of anise again with just a bit of citrus at the end. The finish is warm and peppery and moderately long. A nice blanco but definitely not something I could sip for an extended time.

NOM 1079 | Expect a sweet spice with a lot of mineral bottom notes. Also, look for a hint of mildew! The treasure bottle variant of this brand features a thin leather strap embedded in the top cork. If you find one of these "leatherstraps" you are indeed in for a treat!

Vegetal and sweet, a classic Los Altos profile, with a well rounded aromatic structure but some sharpness that prevents it from being a good sipper, but really good in cocktails

Good neat, but makes the best margaritas of any Blanco I've tasted.

NOM 1535 | NOM 1535. Massively overpriced and easily one of the least pleasant tequilas I've ever had. I don't even like to use it in mixed drinks as the flavour is unpleasant and overpowering.

NOM 1535 | NOM 1535. Honey cinnamon and a hint of clove on the nose and a chamomile undertone. Cola, cocoa, black tea, followed by a hot lingering clean finish. Overall quite good

NOM 1535 | NOM 1535. 4/30 Nose of green fresh cut lemon grass, nail polish remover and smoke, taste is sharp and thin like a razor blade vegetal watermelon rind with orange pith. Finish drops off with no burn making it very approachable if you are new in drinking tequila. Great starter tequila and excellent for making a margarita with lime and agave syrup instead of sweet and sour

Blanco Tequila: The Great Divide

While the panel’s favorites were complex, elemental and intriguing, we were troubled by a lack of intensity in many of the bottles as well as by a sense of artificiality in some. As Florence put it, we found a great divide between those tequilas we liked

Review #93 - 1921 Tequila Blanco

Admittedly, I like aged tequilas better than blancos in most instances, but I really appreciate the clean, spicy and earthy flavors of a good blanco.
