Similar to Pasote, in that it tastes like you're drinking refreshing water from a spring. It's so full of sweetness from the agave, earthy anise, buttery, that it's unbelievable.

Aroma : Cooked agave, earth and minerals predominate. I also get notes of pickle and vanilla. Taste : Cooked agave, earth and minerals. Vanilla and olives. There is some sweetness here but it isn't overpowering in any way. Finish : Long and prolongs the same flavor notes, with a little more emphasis on the earth and minerals. This has lots of great flavors, and the light sweetness works with the earth and minerals to give a nice profile. This is probably my favorite Blanco of the big 3 NOM 1579 brands.

Is there such a thing as too much agave or something being too good?!? This tequila is phenomenal on every level, I have absolutely no critique to write about. Get a case and squirrel this away for anytime you need to smile......it’s that good!!

Medium legs. Crisp notes of rich baked agave, pine needles, citrus and dill. Softer notes of vanilla on the nose. Minerals and a faint lactic note. The flavors pop! Licorice, vanilla, olives, cinnamon and sweet agave are just a few of the highlights. A nice mineralality as well. A stand out tequila.

The "green" profile carried through to the finish. Reminds me of Corrido blanco. Soft yet lasting finish. Edited: Raw agave and some alcohol on the nose with a little bell pepper. A little marshmallow, maybe a little ripe mango on the body and then the spice kicks in. Finish lingers mostly on the side of the tongue.

This tequila just blew my mind. Aroma is all about earth, minerals, and mushrooms. Once it enters your mouth it feels fantastic, has a little bit of sweetness, but the minerality is there to keep it real. The finish is a crowd pleaser. My first impression - I need to hurry up and buy several cases of this so I never run out of it.

Earthy, mineral nose- almost mushroomy- and very soft, slightly sweet flavor. Goes down easy with unusual aroma/taste profile. A nice addition to the market.

Cool and mineral on the nose. Smooth light citrus and melon on the palate with just enough bite on the finish. Delicious!

Very nice blonco Smell of loads of agave, minerals, earthiness(light dirt), root vegetable The taste is similar with agave and minerals up front. Not as much mineral taste like the 110 loads of pepper. A slight vanilla Ed’s in the middle. Very good

Wow wow and wow! Felipe and El Pandillo. Really remarkable Tequila. For anybody that likes to drink this is something to go for it. I can see this Tequila being THE Tequila of aficionados and connoisseurs. It’s insane. The aromas made me feel like walking right on the side of a river in the forest. It’s rain water, spring water, it’s wet river rocks, wet leaves, Also has tons of olives, some white chocolate, natural sugar, mezcal aromas (smoke and rustic clay), roasted agaves. The flavours are just like drinking the most fresh water you could have after doing exercise. That sensation in your mouth of fresh water, that just makes you want to drink more. It has really nice viscosity -not too creamy just right- agave, anise, mint.... I could go on and on.... Just go and drink it! It is an elixir!

Aroma Notes: earth/wet soil & very mineral. Vegetal and spicy herbs (jalapeño/bell pepper/black pepper) Light notes of citrus and tropical fruits Flavors: Cooked agave, mineral/light metallic entrance, then the wow factor comes in….. ready? Great balance of peppery notes, fruits (pineapple/green apple/pear), spices (anise/spearmint) & tamarind.

This is just so good! Nice aroma of agave, rainwater and minerals. So much going on with the flavor: agave, butter, anise, pepper, it’s complex and velvety. Wonderful mouthefeeel. The finish stays around for a long time and makes me want more! This is a new favorite for me!

Fantastic. Harder and more complex than G4. Not nearly as soft and drinkable as G4.

Tasting in Tlaquepaque, this aroma is all agave! Pure, sweet, and pleasant. A nice citrus finishes the nose before that delicious oily sip. Overall this reminds me of Pasote but with even more earth. A real treat. Update: my second tasting, fresh bottle. After opening up the nose screams sweet fruit, then such an agave punch. I must say this is the first time I’ve smelled the agave in a tequila that I smelled as it was fermenting and cooking in the brick oven at the distilleries. Wow. This is raw and masterfully done. It totally carries it’s own signature.

Aroma - cooked agave, butter, anise Flavor - agave, butter, minerals, pepper Finish - lingers long for a Blanco, buttery start then peppery warm finish Similar to the ultra smooth Volans Blanco but with a little more heat and complexity. Both great sipping blancos!

Flavor profile is what I expected based on the aroma. Thick mouthfeel with cooked agave, minerals and pepper with a hint of anise at the back end. Finish lasts for days and inspires more pours! Very impressive.....

The influence of the deep well water is very stong on this one, clay & chalk notes, not my favourite flavour profile but still a very good tequila

Wow! Another winner from Felipe. I love the mineral earthyness of it and the peppery even light sweetness at the end. The price is right, a bargain in my mind. This is a bottle I would get into the ring with any night.

The use of deep well water definitely gives this an earthy flavor. Definitely recommend trying it as it's a very unique tequila. After coming back to this, I like it more

Really liked this tequila. Very nice mineral notes with a strong agave flavor and a little bit of lactic flavor on the finish. The flavor profile is also complex enough where you want to go back and have another glass to experience it again.
