Initial aromas of lime and agave, very clean with a hint of sweetness. The taste consists of a very light citrus blended with agave, a touch of oak, and a pleasant consistency throughout. The finish is incredibly smooth blend of those same notes of agave and lime, with herbal notes of basil that linger on the palate. A true sipping blanco tequila that is among the best.

More floral than blanco

Feels good to be getting back to reviewing. I caught COVID and my palate and nose were gone, I didn’t get to enjoy a proper tequila in months, but I’m back now! Aroma: Soft agave, ethanol, citrus, baking spices and i think a hint of cinnamon. Palate: Sharp hit of agave, the bright citrus on the nose comes right through, not quite orange, not quite lime, but something in between. The ethanol is very mild. There’s a lingering spice note, if you made me call it, I’d say cinnamon but that’s almost not quite right, but close enough. Verdict: Buy it. I’ve had the mixto Tequileno Blanco, and this is clearly leagues beyond that. A highly competent sipping blanco, I personally would not put this in a cocktail. It’s a little pricy in the $50 range, I’d recommend the half size if possible. I picked up the 375ml blanco + repo combo at Total Wine and I believe Old Town has it as well, would definitely recommend that if you can.

Mango and cinnamon. Cooked agave. Black pepper. Delicious and unique. Softly sweet but a broad range of flavors in this blanco.

Nose: You need to give this some breathing time to coax out the bouquet. Warm, round agave aromas. Bright spices and peppery earthiness. Both lemon and orange citrus notes. Maybe melon or mango. Subtle herbal scent of dill and thyme. Flavor: Medium viscosity with a sweet and punchy agave/pepper kick off. The spices and citrus follow the nose, with the addition of silky salted caramel and anise. The flavors are much more dynamic than the aromas.

Tequileno Blanco I smell clean agave and sweet minerals. I taste a punch of sweet agave and pepper. There is a nice medium finish. This review is too simple for such a tasty tequila! Go buy one and let me know what you think.

Spicy, herbal, and a little too hot for my personal preference when sipping neat. Give it a few minutes to breathe and the alcohol dissipates lending a more approachable softness. Underripe banana and citrus peel up front with a lasting sweetness on the finish.

Aromas start off with a little bit of alcohol, its grassy, herbal, nice sweet cooked agave, some fruit (melon), a hint of anise, some pepper, spice, light smoke, floral, and mint. I don't usually like blanco rested in wood, but this is an exception. The taste followed through, as it was smooth and soft, with anise, pepper, light fruit, citrus, cooked agave and minerals. There was a little bit of heat on the back end. A real solid blanco.

Nose is neutral with some faint agave. Green agave and some alcohol. Short finish.

Really great off the nose and only gets better as it goes! Nothing but roasted agave and a little bubble gum on the ending, this might be a new house pour.

Cinnamon, floral, white pepper aromas. Natural sweetness and minerality with a short finish. Tasty, just wish it was more viscous.

Cinnamon, cooked agave, mineral and floral aromas. Tastes slightly sweet, a little bit vanilla from the month it spent resting in oak. Feels thick and oily in the mouth. Finish is super clean but doesn’t last very long. (I think that's actually a good thing for most people.) Overall a solid product.

This is probably the favorite of the Tequileño line. Funny that Cuervo wanted to fight over the term “platino”. This is there 100% blue agave Blanco and is very good. I don’t think it compares to my favorite blancos but it’s getting close.

Sweet agave and citrus on the nose, nice oily medium finish with minimal bite. This Blanco over delivers for its value.

Lots of agave in this one, but comes through very smoothly. Finish is very long with minimal alcohol.

This comes in pricewise just above baseline stalwarts such as Espolon and Arette, and delivers more. More earthiness, viscosity and saturation of flavors. It totally works as a sipper or shooter, and improves, say, a margarita or paloma with more complex tequila flavors coming through, making it a perfect mixer where more expensive stuff would be overkill. Punches above its weight and should get more attention.

Floral on the nose, with pepper and a nice hit of agave. Nice oily mouth feel. Very earthy with some pepper. Medium finish. This is solid!
