On the nose, loads of cooked agave and some salinity, definitely getting minerals. A honey like sweetness, very appealing. On the palate, honey first, and an aromatic sweetness like agave nectar. Tons of agave, and it’s very oily, completely coats the mouth beautifully. A little bit of spice, but really the agave and honey notes are stealing the show. I get a little bit of aromatic floral notes but it’s faint. Overall, an banger from Carlos Camarena. On my first tasting, I didn’t love it but now that I come back to it, I am finding this to be absolutely fantastic. This is, in my opinion, the platonic ideal of blanco tequila. It’s not necessarily the best I’ve ever had, but it is, in all aspects, very good with no discernible flaws.

Lote 10 from new bottling. El Tesoro is very balanced and I think can be liked by most people, in Mexico it feels expensive vs. other (better imo) offerings but in the US it’s a good value.

Nose: Agave and fruity entrance. . Mango, citrus, anise, minerals and vanilla-ginger-spicy goodness. A hint of lactic. A floral presence. This has an “ebullient” bouquet. Flavor: Oily agave flavor with hints of cinnamon and spice. Rounded fruit notes. Perfect dose of pepper for balance. A good all purpose blanco.

I smell the agave, minerals and floral notes. It’s soft. I taste naturally sweet agave and white pepper along with some anise. The finish is nice and clean but short. Overall it’s a well made tequila that’s slightly on the sweet side.

As solid as they come, agave to be found around every corner and the price is tonight to beat. This is one of those reference products that new producers should taste before they decide on their profile....it’s a classic.

This is filled with a nose of sweet cooked agave, light anise, very light vanilla, definite citrus, and definite black pepper. On taste- you get the citrus and the delicious sweet cooked agave, grass, citrus and black pepper. This is a really solid tequila.

Aroma : Cooked agave, citrus, and some pear and pineapple notes. Also some degree of black pepper and earthy, grassy notes, but not necessarily mineral notes. Taste : Cooked agave and black pepper spiciness. Some earthy, grass notes. Light celery, citrus, and medium oils. I actually got a little bit of vanilla from this which is an interesting sight for a blanco, but it doesn't take away from the experience. Finish : Short to medium length with more spice and agave. To a lesser extent some greener, vegetal notes from before. This Blanco has some really good spice that goes well with the other flavors. I can find this for $36.99 USD so there's a lot of value as well.

Free tasting at local liquor store, county/gov operated. Aroma: cooked agave, pepper, oak, green olives, and honey-vanilla. Flavor: cooked agave, pepper, greens, honey-vanilla. Nice but short finish, barely no after taste.

Nose = Nice pop of sweet agave. No heat on the nose either, very even keel, subtle almost. Super pleasant. Taste = Oh yes. Agave forward, citrus, some pepper. Very well balanced. Finish = Nice and long. Warm but not aggressive. Vanilla at the end with a bit of sweetness. For 44$ @ Old Town Tequila it’s solid value. Easily a sipper and would mix well. Would recommend to a friend

Man do I like this! Full agave and some tartness to this Lot ETNP-B-001. Not a sweet product in the slightest I can see this being offputting to some drinkers. Stone ground, wood vat fermented, copper pot distilled and all El Tesoro de Don Felipe.

In the bottle aromas of vanilla and caramel. In the glass pepper scents fill the smelling senses. Smooth finish very light burn on the back end but smooth going down.

Definite citrus aroma, thick mouthfeel, a little harsh but great when it sits.

Aroma: grass, minerals and agave. Palate: White pepper, minerals, celery upfront and anise, black pepper toward the back-end - lovely and refreshing. The finish lingers enough but just a touch of bitterness which was disappointing to me. However, the flavours and its oily/buttery mouth feel more than makes up for it.

Rats, I really wanted to like this Blanco after my Step-dad raved about it but had a hard time finding any positives here. On the nose, bland and nothing compelling stands out…tastes follow same theme - no herbal, no agave, no oily mouth coat and totally lacking any finish. Sadly, nothing really pops for me on this very simple and extremely disappointing bottle of tequila - So bland I can’t even say it’s good value - will end up as a mixer for ranch water on a hot day. I can’t even recommend this to a Noob as an intro sipper…give me my Fortaleza, G4 or even Don Abraham Blanco’s and I’m completely satisfied - pass on this y’all, Mb.

Sweet cooked agave with white pepper and a very well balanced finish. Harmony and drinkability are very high. This is the tequila I will buy newbie tequila drinkers. Solid blanco.

Has a lot of sweetness honeysuckle notes with a bunch of agave and very light fresh aroma Taste has some briny salinity that is pushed to the front and the the sweetness of the agave comes in with the finish it is a just the smallest amount of peppery finish and then still honey agave great overall flavor not alot of contrast it smells similar to how it tastes the mouthfeel is very impressive with this one love the briny smooth mouthfeel

Fantastic aroma of agave with slight grassiness. Maybe the best smelling Blanco I’ve experienced. Super oily mouth feel. Flavor of cooked agave with a hint of citrus changing to a nice pepper.

On the nose, I get loads of cooked agave with a distinct caramel grassiness that’s similar to Tapatio, but more intense. On the palate, it’s smooth, buttery agave with honey and caramel. Just a touch of heat at the end. Overall, it’s similar to Tapatio, but deeper/more caramel. It does have more anise/licorice as well, which translates to more bitterness, which I’m not a fan of. The buttery, caramel wears off slightly after a couple of weeks and becomes more anise/bitter.

This has to be one of the best traditionally made tequilas and at the price such a great value! On the nose I get loads of cooked agave, some citrus, lots of black pepper and a hint of fresh cut grass. Flavours are a lot of the same, big hits of agave and citrus with a peppery finish. This is a must have to any tequila lovers bar!
