One of the best blanco tequilas I’ve enjoyed in a long while! Clean, crisp vegetal (raw agave) on the nose. Nice, earth mid and bright finish with just a touch of warmth. Super easy to enjoy. Be sure to have a back up bottle!

Nose: cooked agave, mineral, earth, vegetal, lite smoke, rain and well water. Palate: anis, brine/salt, citrus, pepper, mineral, agave, pear, rain water. Finish medium and sweet and peppery

The aroma has vegetal, grassy notes alongside the classic earth-minerality-cooked agave combo seen in other 1579 Blancos. This carries through in the taste where there's more prominent minerals, and tons of sweet cooked agave that's made more mellow from oxygenation. Spicy black pepper, cinnamon and light fruits are also present. The finish is decently long with agave and spice that keep you coming back for more as the glass opens up.

Nose: A fresh dynamic nose. Minerals, vibrant citrus aromas: lime, lemon and grapefruit. A bit of smokiness. Dandelions on a spring day. Spicy, caramelized sweet agave. A hint of dill weed. Flavor: Spicy. Kicky pepper. Fruity: apples and pineapple. Velvet-like on the palate. Thick and chewy. This agave has spectacular natural, rich sweetness . These agaves must be fully mature and high brix plants. A fleeting dill herbal note. Finish is rich and satisfying. Ends with some pineapple, cinnamon/pepper heat and salty caramel.

Fresh rainfall, dill, green apples. Unmistakably Felipe. Soft edges but not dull. Some pears, cooked agave and very light touch of white pepper. The finish is hanging on and coating the back of my mouth. Outstanding.

Amazing sweet cooked agave, so full of natural sugar, minerals, floral notes, anise and butter. Some smoke appears on taste, along with the butter, minerals and anise and a pinch of citrus..... just absolutely amazing.

Strong vegetal aroma upfront with distinct agave clearly forward. Secondary/background floral and salty brine aromas follow. Very smooth with green vegetable flavors at the open with cinnamon, black pepper and fruit (Apple/pear) supporting. Warm, spicy finish lingers for a moderate length. This is a pretty traditional blanco with some of the typical “roughness” polished off. 12-04-2019

I love Blanco Tequila and Felipe Camarena! The nose is wonderful. I detect a lot of agave, minerals, brine, citrus, lemon grass and some light floral notes. The flavor is excellent. The fresh agave and citrus notes are followed by a nice mix of pepper and brine. The finish is all agave and it goes down easy. It has a nice round feel mostly likely from the oxygenation. Overall this is a perfect sipping blanco for my pallet. If you enjoy sipping blancos then you should add this to your collection. Great job Volans and El Pandillo! ¡Salud!

Thick, creamy, chewy, natural and delicious are the 5 things that come to mind on sipping this Felipe Camarena creation for the first time. Some sweetness develops on following sips along with some pleasing mineral notes. This uses all 3 available water sources in its production and it shows in the taste and finish as elements bloom, cover up others and then reveal those again as the finish develops and fades. Nice pepper and spice on the tongue lead to a long satisfying finish.

Aromas of anise, minerals, orange rind and sweet cooked agave. A nice, rounded mouthfeel (due in part to oxygenation). Sweet agave flavor with a black pepper finish for a little kick. Like all of Felipe Camarena’s blancos, it is well made and highlights the prime materials (agave, and spring, well and rain water —1/3 of each.) A solid sipper.

Yet another great product from El Pandillo. It has that mineral aroma and flavor that this distillery is known for. Also citrus and floral aromas. Flavor and finish are pretty much all agave. The aeration makes it super rounded, accentuating the sweetness of the agave.

Been on my wishlist 4 years! Mike from Great Lakes turned me on to siptequila.com & BAM, a week later, I’m drinking some hard 2 find tequilas! Clean & crisp on the nose, not a ton of essence; warm vanilla across the front, not a ton of character, just clean & crisp notes of mineral & agave; warm across the backend, more pepper & honey, really nice finish; a terrific value at $60USD;

Softer and cleaner than Terralta but not as soft and drinkable as G4. And not the finish of G4. But clearly one of the top tequilas in the world.

Very nice! Agave, pepper, citrus. Nice mild agave up front with a little pepper heat in the middle with some citrus. The pepper continues to the finish and it leaves a nice clean feel.

another fantastic blanco from Felipe Camarena. aroma is heavy on agave and minerals (obviously his use of the water contributes here). citrus, vegetal and flowers can be picked up as well. the flavor keeps the agave and minerals up front with citrus, anise, pineapple developing next. has a nice pepper on the tongue throughout. the finish is a bit less than I expected but still is an outstanding blanco

Bottle #2792. Rested 10 minutes. Appearance is crystal clear. Long thin legs and small dotted tears. A few oily floaties but unfiltered so now expected. Nose- Agave, sweet peppers, wet grass, fresh fruit. Palate- Cooked agave, black pepper, seeded jalapeno, olive brine, melon, faint mint. Finish- Mild sweetness fades quickly to peppery heat and ends with medium lasting minerality. Super clean and delicious.

Clear and bright. Longs legs with so many tears I renamed the glass llorona. Nose: Agave, orange peel, pepper, asparagus and minerals. Taste: Nice medium mouthfeel, cinnamon, olive, green grapes, grapefruit, oregano, celery, bell pepper, and jalapeño. Finish: A vegetal finish that lasts a bit. A really good tasting tequila, but for the price Id rather buy something else from this NOM.
