Nose: Spicy entrance: cloves, cinnamon, green cardamom and cracked pepper. Green agave and sweet ripe agave aromas. Followed up with a floral/ berry note. Hints of guava and dark cherries. An earthy, mineral element in the aroma. Light citrus and baked pineapples. A touch of smokiness. Flavor: Ripe natural agave leads into spiciness and a buttery brown sugar note. The combination of jalapeño pepper, plus white and black pepper are borderline overpowering - as well as holding trace bitterness. There are vegetal and herbal undertones of artichoke and asparagus. A green banana note, a whisper of citrus. Not really oily in the mouth - yet it is appealing on the palate. A clean profile. Finishes with a suggestion of subtle vanilla. This high proof needs a lot of time to open up and show it’s pedigree.

Tasted this newcomer at the first annual Margaritas y Mas Festival in Santa Barbara . Really nice earthy , vegetal slightly sweet very agave forward highproof without the extra heat . This new label has a pretty cool story of finding a very small distillery , that I don’t even think had a NOM and getting them to produce their tequila , and wanting to do things like we know they should be done . Hope they can pull it off because this is some really tasty stuff . Keep yer eyes on this one !!!

Agave forward and very nice finish. Little floral and earthy, peppery. A Solid blanco, albeit not the best value.

This is a different Blanco. It has a funky taste to it that is pleasant. Intense agave, butter and the alcohol for a high proof is not that noticeable.

Ive only been surprised by a new brand twice before. Great nose on entire line. Super savory and finish is incredible and my favorite. Not an everyday for the price, but definitely worth the price. Very special and after hearing the story of how this came to be makes total sense why it tastes so special.

Very agave forward in taste and smell, just remember it is a high proof tequila. Even enjoyed it with one large ice cube.

It is a good Blanco, but a little spicy. I like the Flavio, but not amazing

If you want to truly experience the smell and taste of agave, this is the one to try. Being a high proof it isn’t for the faint of heart but it’s surprisingly smooth with peppery spice flavor. Absolutely wonderful tequila.

Like this high proof agave forward blanco. Good balance, only negative is the price point at $80 plus dollars

Very good. Vegetal and cooked agave presence. For a high proof not a bad burn good medium finish. Everyone should try

I think we got a bad bottle. I would try another taste from new bottle. Tastes like a dead body part in it.

This is an excellent tequila. Agave busting in on the nose. Taste is a lot of agave too. The real kicker here is this is a 100 proof and sooo easy to sip on. The agave lingers in on the finish as well. The only real knock against it is the price, it is pricey. I have been seeing the price per bottle drop and I believe as more gets sold, the lower it can go.

all I can say about this Blanco is WOW! nose:. beautiful baking spices with a vegetal and floral nose. you can smell the fresh spring water too. flavors. wow! the flavor on this really pops. You get lots of baking spices, vegetal, a little anise in there to balance things out and it finishes with a nice cinnamon sweetness with a touch of honey. I really like this one. I put it up against the Fortaleza still strength (one of my favorites) and this won! Definitely worth a try but not cheap. This is more like a Calle 23 Criollo type Blanco where you sip when you want something really special. very small batch stuff.

Sampled at Monterey Festival. It’s really excellent. Perhaps the purest, cleanest, valley tequila I’ve ever had. Exceptional. Really expensive, but exceptional.
