Pronounced floral and citrus aroma. Sweet, buttery flavor of mint and fruit. Very little spice in the flavor. The finish is brief and remains completely in the mouth. A much flatter tequila than the '10 Los Mangos Plata. Tasted side-by-side with the 2010 Los Mangos Plata. Aromas of mint and citrus along with cooked agave. Sweet flavor with a nice mix of fruit and mint. A slight spicy bite shows up at the end. The finish is relatively brief. (Wish I had the '10 to compare again). 10/24/2016. Re-tasted side-by-side with the 2012 (el Refugio) and 2013 (Los Fresnos).

Tomas has helped create a beautiful product that clearly demonstrates the terrior of the harvested agave. This plata has all the flavor that you would want in an unaged product, spicy, citrus, pepper on the tongue and agave and mint with some grapefruit on the nose. Top 10 ever. Ocho in general that is.

Rated blind after aeration. Glass: lots of very slow tears leaving tiny pearls above a thin film. Nose: big agave. Mouth: thick and buttery, warns of big spice, but not harsh. Flavor: mineral giving way to big warm pepper. This is all about the spice. Finish: big lingering pepper, moist and pleasant. Agave: Highlands from the highest of the Camarena ranchos (2150m), harvested at 8.5 years. $45 @ BevMo.

Delicious sweetness up front that envelopes a bold agave flavor. The finish is smooth and very clean.

Tequila Ocho Silver el Puertecito , 2011 is packed with sweet aromas of agave. Both the aromas and flavors are well balance. I love how clean it feels on my palate. No burning and super smooth. It finishes long with agave and "just right" citrus notes. Wow!

Ocho El Puertecito blanco has a really nice nose with citrus and cooked agave notes. In fact there is a lot of cooked agave on the palate along with cinnamon, anise, and earth tones. While the finish is a bit one dimensional, it is quite enjoyable. I recommend the entire Ocho line - it's good stuff!
