It smells like the air after it rains. What a different experience from other tequilas. The taste is as good as it gets. Agave, pepper, minerals, and are what I taste. The finish is awesome. Lingers and makes you want another taste.

Aroma: Clean, bright fruit with some mild, damp earthiness (almost like breathing in a rainforest). Taste: Pleasantly light sugar that is accentuated by the minerality. Finish: Flavors carry through.

Fantastic aside from the black pepper is too strong in the finish. After a while all you taste is black pepper in every sip. If it weren’t for that this would be a top 3 for me.

My first comment in here and it's on stuff I usually don't drink (Blanco). This is the most complex Blanco I tried so far, but somehow it's just not made for me. At only 40% the alcohol comes up to dominant, I find that most Repos and Anejos are balanced way better. Also in my opinion 50€ (55$) for a bottle in Germany is too much for that stuff.

Smells and tastes like a summer morning. Grassy, wet, piney, earthy. Big and velvety, full-on agave with a nice heat and a long green finish. This is great stuff.

Another El Pandillo marvel. Can smell/taste the mineral rainwater influence not to mention the Los Altos agave. This is ‘comfort agave’ IMHO. Found it locally for $39, will keep a bottle on the shelf.

Aroma : Lots of cooked agave, some notes of black pepper, earth and some minerality. Taste : Fairly thick and oily and very agave forward. Some more of the earth and mineral notes from the aroma. Each note works very well together. Finish : Long lasting with more agave and earth/mineral. Also some vegetal notes in the finish as well. This is tequila made right, every note works well together in all aspects. The only way this could be better is if it was a little more complex.

A superb blanco, minerally, vegetal and with a great mouth feel. £40+ a bottle in the UK - this is my second - well worth the price and the effort of seeking it out.

Another amazing juice from the mad scientist, Felipe Camarera. Pasote blanco utilizes rainwater collected in the rainy season in approximately 40% of this tequila. If you close your eyes, you can smell that smell in the air right before a rain storm in the blanco expression. What is up front is “mineraly” which a lot of distillers try to hide. Felipe puts it up front as almost a badge of honor. It’s very refreshing to have a newer tequila to come out that adheres to the “old school” method of horno cooking, tahona-style crushing and traditional fermentation and distillation processes.

If God was on the brink of death - in the literal, non-Nietzschean sense- and someone offered me the choice to meet him to ask about the meanings of life, love and eternity, or to have the most trifling hint of a sip of Pasote Blanco, I’d say ‘Careful with spillage, the spout fucking sucks.’
