Aroma : Cooked agave and pear. Taste : Cooked agave and pear show up here too. There is also a small degree of black peppery spice, but not much. Oily texture. Finish : Long with stronger emphasis on cooked agave and and pear. This is a phenomenal example of a very simple and uncomplex, but richly flavored tequila. Blancos like this and G4 are a must have.

Wow, what a nice tequila. Single estate and done the right way using hornos and not prematurely harvesting agaves. Cooked agave in the nose and front of the tongue, followed by citrus and herbaceous notes with black and white pepper. Olive brine finish. Wonderful juice.

Loads of green agave and black pepper. Big agave flavor. A bit harsh on the finish, but still good overall.

The aroma is wonderful. The fresh baked agave really shows well. It's worth a couple extra sniffs, because it's that good. This is a somewhat rich mouth coating blanco. It's like a gift to your tongue. The finish does not disappoint. This is just the blanco. I can't wait to retaste the other expressions.

Love this blanco's nose and flavor. You can really taste Don Adolfo's amazing agaves. The finish is a little harsh, but I'm sure that goes away with a few drinks!

All in all a blanco that is up there with the best of them. Nice balance of citrus and pepper, a little of each but in between is cooked agave which I actually had along with it. Not the best value brand but for the price it's worth it.

Aroma of agave, citrus and grass with a hint of black pepper - all very subtle and well combined. Nothing overpowering here. Flavor begins slightly sweet then brings classic agave, earth and black pepper spice. The finish is smooth and fades nicely. A great sipper for a warm summer evening. Thanks Z!

Rated blind in Riedel Overture Glass: This has the slightest light straw tinge of color, otherwise clear. It coats the glass fully with legs appearing in the form of vertical ripples before tears form. The tears are incredibly large and slow with their descent nearly imperceptible. This continues for a very long time leaving behind an incredible number of pearls. Aroma: The bold aroma knocks you over with cooked agave and pepper/spice, with subtle notes of dried cherry and apple along with slight mineral/brine notes. As it opens up, brighter notes of grapefruit, bell pepper, dill and celery provide subtle accent to the cooked agave. Cinnamon notes appear at the bottom of the glass. Entry: The entry is oily with a hint of alcohol heat, giving way to big spicy/peppery sensations. Flavor: The flavor is agave-forward with a medium complexity provided by white pepper, some minerality, a little bitterness, a touch of sweetness, and hints of apple and grapefruit. Finish: The finish is wet and of moderate length with the agave flavors beginning to dissipate after a minute or so and the pepper sensation beginning to drop off about a minute after that. Conclusion: This is really enjoyable to watch and smell in the glass and is an bold enjoyable showcase of cooked agave.

Aroma containing pepper when it is first poured, but slowly changes as it opens. Next stage I detected cinnamon, and then it became vegetal. The taste has a tiny bit of pepper spice, and is silky smooth. I could drink this all day.

This tequila smells great! Aromas of lemongrass and citrus. In the mouth it has spicy flavor in the back with notes of pepper and clove.

Alquimia Blanco ($53 @ Ferment and Still) is masterfully made blanco that doesn't rely on layers of complexity. It is simple and oh so dangerously easy to sip. I urge you to read what Rick Levy, Grover, Erica Boorom, and Chris Ancell have identified. Aroma: Cooked agave and pear with a drizzly of black pepper. A nice natural tones of brine and minerality. Taste: Soft, yet luxurious. Cooked agave, citrus and herbaceous. Pepper with a break through of grapefruit, mint. Again..minerality provides a nice base. Finish. Long and dry. A must try.

The aroma is not that intense; it does bring cooked agave aromas, a bit of alcohol, mint, anise, and some metallic essence too. I was expecting something more bright, more aromatic. The flavour is way much better than the aroma. I enjoy it immensely. It's spotless; it has a significant evolution in the mouth. I loved the agave flavour and the slight bitterness of dark chocolate at the end. The feeling in the mouth is sensational—sort of like drinking river water. I like it! I like it a lot.

Wow! I’ve been on the lookout for this one for a while. Tasting it at Quinta Don Jose in Tlaquepaque. Alquimia Blanco is different and delicious! Aroma is rich with baked agave and fresh baked bread, maybe pan dulce. And there is an undertone of alcohol. There is a “softnesses” to the flavor that I’ve never experienced— not weak, it’s full flavored and complex but subtle and wonderful. The finish is similar, very smooth and for a moment I thought short, but I was mistaken. The finish slowly built intensity and brought back some of the nuanced flavors from the aroma and taste and definitely long lasting. I will stock this at my bar.

This is a very smooth blanco which appears to have all the trappings of a traditionally created tequila. Floral sweet agave, pepper, earthy mineral grassiness/mintiness. A smooth alcohol hit on the tongue, a good buttery mouth feel, with a really nice even finish that leaves me looking forward to the next sip. Will be happily included in my rotation of sippers.

oh the nose on this is a total treat. Dangerously easy to sip. Oily creamy mouth feel. I can see how you could go through a bottle easily. Dangerous!

Review #286 - Alquimia Tequila Blanco

After the first two I expect nothing short of greatness from this line. Tequila Alquimia has a great authentic quality that makes it unique.

Tequila Alquimia – Just What the Doctor Ordered

One of the newer brands on the market that caught our attention was Tequila Alquimia, an organic tequila made in the highlands of Jalisco. I distinctly remember Grover pulling me aside at the Monterey Tequila & Mezcal Expo and saying, “You need to try the
