2012- Beautiful flavor, delicious, perhaps the best blanco I’ve ever had. Clear almost shinning bright. Aromas include guava, pomegranate, tropical fruits, grapefruits, peppermint and olives. Palate and body are full of cooked agave, spices, grapefruit, and tropical fruits with spearmint. Finish is long and spicy, zesty, with agave, eucalipto and tropical fruits. $44/bottle

Strong vegetal aroma with hints of dirt and citrus. Nice bold flavor of black pepper and cinnamon with rich agave standing out. Good, medium length finish. This is a "classic" blanco with great agave presence and a nice peppery heat. Fairly strong acetone aroma along with mint, agave and earth. "Big" blanco flavor with peppery heat and strong mint right upfront. The heat subsides with a slight earthy (almost pine-y) aftertaste. The finish is slightly tannic and medium-long. Bolder and richer than the 2011. 10/24/2016. Re-tasted side-by-side with the 2011 (el Puertocito) and 2013 (los Fresnos).

Aroma: Slight hints of grass and clay. Flavor: Initially it is very upfront in your mouth and tastes strongly of pepper. It then mellows into a nice mix of grass and raw agave. Finish: The finish is long and continues to build. Conclusion: This is the kind of blanco that I love. It has the definite notes of agave and tastes very natural and earthy. It reminds me a bit of Siete Leguas and Corrido. Definitely worth trying.

Super agave forward with a very light aging touch. Cinnamon and apple. Delicious!

In my opinion, this is one of the best blancos to come from Tequila Ocho. It has plenty of fine vegetal, minty, white pepper notes in the aroma, and the flavor is packed with beautiful sweet cooked agave.
