Blancos dont get much better than this. Great oily entry with tons of warm cooked agave and mineral on both the nose and palate. Some pear and bubble yum. Not pricey in LA. Worth a hunt in other areas.

Aroma: Beautiful raw and cooked agave. Some sweet floral notes as well. Taste: Nice mouthfeel, more agave, white pepper, some minerals, eucalyptus. Finish: medium with nice heat and that herbal eucalyptus thing hanging around. This is a really good one and well worth the bump in price over the other blancos from this wonderful distillery!

Excellence! ... transparent juice filled with cooked agave, mint, citrus, alcohol 42%, herbals, cardamom, walnut, butter and minerals. Easy to sip, can enjoy this all night. All natural !!! IMHO one of the three best blancos I’ve had up to 4/2021

Aroma : Green olive-parmesan cheese, lactic combo that reminds me of Fortaleza Blanco Still Strength. Minerals, and ripe cooked agave are abundant too. Taste : The aromas carry through here with smaller emphasis on the lactic quality. There's still plenty of cooked agave, along with some black peppery spice and notes of cinnamon and light fruit. Finish : Carries more of the fruit from the initial taste along with more minerals. The finish is moderately long, and sweeter than the initial spiciness would indicate. Another great expression from Cascahuín. I'm curious to see what some extra % abv would look like with the lactic quality on this one.

Cascahuín Tahona Blanco - NOM1123 This 84 proof lowlands Tahona tequila is made in the traditional way. Deep well water, stone/brick oven, Tahona crushed and copper pot stills. It shows! The nose is wonderful. It’s fresh agave, lime, minerals, mint, cut grass and sea air. I taste cooked agave, citrus, oysters and white pepper. The 84 proof makes the finish linger. It’s excellent. This is a must have sipper. ¡Salud! AustinTequilaConnoisseurs

This literally pushes every button for me in smell, flavor and finish. Roast agave, natural sweetness and a nice protracted finish. Hope to see this exported somtime soon.

This is an amazing blanco. The aroma is herbal and grassy with the smell of fresh agave. It’s taste is full of agave, minerals, and a little citrus. The mouthfeel is thick and full and just feels great on the palate. The finish is long lasting with that fresh agave lingering for a significant amount of time with just a hint of pepper. There is no alcohol burn whatsoever and no overwhelming spiciness. Love this blanco!

Wow. Probably the best blanco I’ve ever tasted. This is what it’s all about! Minerality, citrus, mature agave, and just and old school funk that you only get by taking your time. Bravo to the Rosales family. A must buy!

Kind of underwhelms off the nose but delivers in spades on the taste, this tequila is phenomenal! Ripe fruit in spades in the finish, reminds me of making a pechuga.

Nose: Extremely sweet, rich baked agave. Ripe Italian cheese, flinty minerals, and an umami/meaty aroma. Some lactic/barnyard aromas (not a negative - just another bonus layer to add to the interest). As it opens up slightly, a minty undercurrent emerges with anise, as well as herbal notes of freshly cut grass and a suggestion of dill weed. Robust citrus lends a fresh note. Flavors: The flavors come in with more punch than the nosing would indicate. Huge caramelized agave presence, a black and white pepper kick, and cinnamon red hots. There is a vague olive-like note. Oily. It finishes with a hint licorice, vanilla cream and pepper. A nice artisanal tequila.

Cooked agave and slightly lactic aroma (which I like!), with a hint of green pepper. Tasty and naturally sweet in the mouth, with a pleasant green pepper finish. Not complicated, but balanced and enjoyable at 42% abv. An exciting new tahona product!

Has a fun lactic/cheesy thing going on in addition to agave, mushroom, earth and cinnamon aromas. Aroma also shifts and changes in the glass over time as it opens up. Flavor is naturally sweet cooked agave and some minerals. Finish is short and clean, the minerals are pronounced as the agave sweetness fades. Quite enjoyable and easy to drink. The lactic/cheese aroma is there because the cooked agave spent a good amount of time exposed to air before they the were added to the fermentation tank. I love this because it's a sign of a truly natural process, and one that can only be achieved through a slow artisanal process. Anyone who thinks that all tequila is the same needs to try this one. I’m also thrilled to see that they installed a tahona and continue to embrace old school production methods at the Cascahuín distillery. Bravo #cascahuinando!

Aroma of agave, light citrus, pear, cucumber, wow what a bouquet! Flavor is sheer heaven. Some lactic as others have mentioned but agave, hard fruit, vanilla, light citrus. This is a masterpiece of a Blanco!

Lote 026 06/09/21 This is incredible … If you like Fortaleza blanco , this is right up your alley. I would describe it as a smoother and lighter version of the Fortaleza blanco. The sweet, cooked agave hits right on the nose upon first smell. I knew this would be good. On the palet it offers an oily , sweet nectar like agave. This is the tequila that will convert a newbie to the agave game. Just incredible. I picked it up for 73 after taxes so it’s pricey.

Agave forward on the nose… some fruit elements like citrus…. Has another aroma can’t place it … maybe olive… has a bite up front and it stays for a minute… long finish. Taste of cooked crushed agave, balanced sweetness… agave is prominent and comes through

nose is a delight, agave at another level.very fragrant, bouquet of wild flowers, citrus lemon zest very defined minerals are upfront hints of herbs and spices palate gives you that roasted agave, roasted pineapple, dry apricot, plums and raisins. alcohol is super mellow. extremely complex so many layers flavors and fragrances. mouth cover is exquisite. peppery on the tip of the tongue and a minty heat on the throat and in the chest. cinnamon and vanilla come thru. finish is super smooth, mineraly and smokey agave and notes of tropical fruit. I'm getting the sweetness that reminds me of a salted caramel.

Canned pineapple on the nose with hints of black pepper. Bananas Foster on the taste, more like caramelized plantains. Super yummy!

This is awesome on the nose and first sip with deep mineral water/agave and baking spices on the palate. The finish is a little short to me, but this is a very solid sipper as a daily or special occasion glass. Top 10 blanco for me as of now.

Cheesy, but pleasant. Very different to any other tequila I have had without losing its essence. Amazing smell.
