Nose: agave, citrus, vegetal, cinnamon, mineral, green apples or pears, earth. Palate: same as nose with sugary flavor Finish: short, mild, not much to it . Something is missing but can’t put my finger on it

Refined, nostalgic, and beautiful. You can taste the attention to detail and commitment to process. No shortcuts, no additives, no bs. This is a lightly peppered, cooked agave forward, slight citrus gentle giant of a tequila. I don’t need t fly to Tequila when I can get there with this bottle. Extraordinary!

Lote from 2020 (before the move to all copper pot still.) Nose: Softly spiced. Hints of pear, citrus, green agave, sulfur and lime. Kissed with a floral note. Flavor: Round spices. Vanilla, pineapple and cinnamon. A touch of saltiness. Slow, rolling, warming pepper spreads across the palate. Silky texture. A straight forward easy sipper. Lalo should appeal to a wide spectrum of tastes.

Strong agave forward, subtle sweetness with a mild peppery finish. Definitely a top blanco. A must for your bar.

Aroma doesn't fight fot your attention but you can discern agave for sure witg light lime, cinnamon, and sugars. Flavor is a big bite of cooked agave uo front followed by peppery, minty, citrus with a touch of vanilla cake frosting. Would stand up well as a mixer even though I'd only ever drink it neat myself.

Aroma: Clean minerality, some herbal notes, with aromas similar to a high-proof blanco. Taste: Light and mild sweetness, with a light mouthfeel and a flavor of primarily cooked agave. Finish: Surprising! A nice vegetal and herbal finish, coupled with cooked agave, some lime zest, and black pepper. Blind Test Update: Aroma: A strong, primarily earthy aroma, with vegetal notes, as well as citrus, light basil, and a hint of mint. Taste: A flavorful blend of agave, lime citrus, garden herbs, light cucumber, with a touch of sweetness. Finish: Ends on a sweet vegetal finish, the cucumber gives way to notes of celery. Herbal and earthy notes as well as agave, citrus, and a lingering minerality.

A – Agave, black pepper, and limestone initially, giving way to strong citrus scents (equal parts lime, orange, grapefruit, lemon…I seemed to pick up subtle notes of each). Moments of cola/anise and baking spices (most notably cinnamon and clove). I also had cocoa and vanilla bean hitting my tastebuds during the nosing process. Great aroma! T – First sip instantly had me thinking green…mint, grass, jalapeno, thyme, rosemary, etc. Cooked agave settled in and stuck around while black pepper, olive, and a slight hint of smoke entered the show. F – Finish was quite good, almost exclusively cooked agave, but a little short for me. Overall – This is an everyday sipper for me. Straightforward blanco, high quality, has everything I like.

From blind tasting: On the nose, I got lactic, buttery, cooked agave, and pear notes. The taste matched the aromas, giving me like a pie/dessert vibe with a medium finish.

Blind: Aroma: citrus, lemon zest, subtler herbacious notes with a hint of minerality Taste: baking spice, green & root vegetables. Hints of nuts. Herbacious notes are more prominent in the taste & the citrus is lost. Oily mouthfeel Finish: very long and pleasant finish. interesting note to this one that i get tastes of chewed up root vegetables like celery + a spicy pepper that leaves a buzz on the tongue and back of throat Aroma: agave. A hint of orange/ pineapple. Nuts, maybe almonds which i like. A bit of herbs and minerality Taste: tasty, but not as exciting as the nose. The agave comes through. Vanilla. There is a harsh bite of rubbing alcohol to this which docs this down significantly for me Finish: nice finish the alcohol causes some buzz. Honestly some honey which is great and softens the edge Update: New product is wayyy better. Will drink again. Great minerality

Agave, green grass and citrus very present in the aroma. Definitely displays classic Los Altos profile. Sweet, cooked agave up front in the flavor followed by some black pepper heat and a bit of bitterness at the end. Finish is minimal. This is a solid Los Altos blanco. I wouldn’t put it on the same level as Siete Leguas or Suerte but it is better than most. 4/26/2022

Light nose with hints of cooked Agave, citrus, taste profile is crisp with nice amount of cooked agave agave, hints of citrus, light pepper. Overall a blanco complex enough to be enjoyed by a veteran tequila drinker and a relative newcomer as well.

Bottle No H 112918 50LL4OBA?23 25/01/23 Aroma of cooked agave, citrus, herbal. Soft mouthfeel with sufficient alcohol. Flavor finds cooked agave, grass, green agave and citrus (lime and grapefruit) upfront with pepper and anise. Medium finish with that biscuit (dry biscuit but with some butter spread on it) note lingering in the background that I love about tequila that uses champagne yeast. The pepper continues, balanced throughout the finish

Very rich, ripe agave on nose and palate. First impression is that it's not a very complex tequila, although that's not a bad thing. it's simple and the aromas and flavors are bold. Mouthfeel is creamy/chewy. Some black pepper on the finish. Citrus and cinnamon begin to emerge, the longer the tequila is in the glass.

When people say smooth this is what I will think of! It almost feels like creamy Blanco. Very very good.

On the nose, Agave, agave, agave. A touch or baking spice and cinnamon. Loaded with cooked agave though, that’s the main takeaway. I get more baking spice and fruit, like dried fruit. On the palate, very heavy mouthfeel, that catches my attention before the flavors. Definitely getting that agave, and very little heat. That baking spice is nice, very warming. It’s so silky, I almost want to call it creamy. A little bit of pepper. A touch of sweetness but drier than quite a few of the tequilas in my bar. Overall, solid blanco. Not a lot going on, it’s not overly complex, but it hits the right notes and hits them well. Won’t be a mainstay in my bar, but I’m glad to have it while I do.

Really digging the Lalo! Great fresh agave nose. Mid palate is smooth and round. Finish is smooth and elegant with a bit of white people on the tongue. Definitely a tasty highland tequila. Great job Lalo Gonzalez!

New distillery bottled 13/06/22: Sweet agave, citrus, light cinnamon, touch of butter, and just a bit vegetal. Goes down fast; would be a good poolside drinker! Seems lighter with more citrus than the old batches, without the grassy notes. I’m enjoying the new distillery better. I rated this an 87 last year, 83 during a recent blind review with TMM, and now… upgraded to an 88 with the new distillery. Since NOM 1468 didn’t change despite moving distilleries down the road, you’ll have to check for the batch date newer than 17/05/22 (May ‘22).

I love it! I put it up there with my faves Fortaleza and G4. There's something in there that is different. Trying to pinpoint it - a spice or perhaps the champagne yeast??.. Nose: I definitely get sweet agave and raw/vegetal agave, some vanilla, cinnamon and pepper, also a bit of fruit Taste: Sweet Agave, vegetal, vanilla, cinnamon, anise, pepper Feel: Buttery with a bit of a fizzy feel on the finish (maybe the pepper, or again, the champagne yeast?) Finish: pepper and sweet with a kick

Aroma: Friendly and forceful attack, a mineral vegetal impression. Agave is definitely present, with hints of pineapple, citrus peel, herbs and finishes with a pepper kick. Flavor: Herbal, earthy, vegetal and hints of pear & apple green Pairing: dehydrated pineapple

Standout Blanco. What a product. Fantastic nose and fresh flavor. Highly recommend and comparable to Yeyo if you have tasted that. Update: coming back to bump my rating by a point. Lalo came in 1st on a blind with some heavy hitters. Lalo really is producing an amazing product.

Fresh agave, tangerine, sugar cane, something herbal that I can’t quite put my finger on. A delicious agave-forward, clean, assertive and yet very sip-able blanco. I love everything about this tequila.
