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.

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.

Blind: 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.

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.

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).

Standout Blanco. What a product. Fantastic nose and fresh flavor. Highly recommend and comparable to Yeyo if you have tasted that.

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.

Perfectly clear in the glass. Some beads left after the tears have fallen. Nose: pleasant cooked and raw agave reminding me of a bright green, if colors could have an aroma. A bit of citrus zest with some baking spices. Palate: nice light, but viscous mouthfeel with cooked agave the dominant flavor. Some pepper, sweetness, and a clean ethanol burn on a short-medium finish. Impressed and delighted!

BATCH 2: nose is memorable - lime and brine with a little bit of interesting sour funkiness. Very approachable taste of stone fruit, anise, white pepper. A lot of sweetness but not fake. Finish is fairly short, by pleasant. A SOLID blanco that I like 3 points better than batch 1.

Some acrid smoke on the nose this is very mellow on entry with a thin water like viscosity. Agave, some sweetness and a strong finish with ethanol notes lasting several minutes.

Lalo Blanco Tequila Nose: The nose is light but I detect sweet agave and citrus (lime). Taste: It’s agave forward, slightly sweet. Hints of lime and pepper. It’s delicate and clean. Finish: Short finish of sweet agave and white pepper. This is an easy sipper. It’s a simple blanco with perfect balance. It’s a sipping tequila. It might be lost in a cocktail. Be carefully because this goes down easy. $45 ATX ————————————- Lalo Re-Review The nose is full of creamy buttery cooked agave. There’s hints of celery and white pepper along with oily lime zest. When I go to sip I’m smelling the cooked agave and it translates into the taste. The agave is prominent and forthright. The pepper is more pronounced and the citrus oil appears towards the finish. There’s a nice mouthfeel. The viscosity is apparent and the finish is peppery with hints of brine. The pepper lingers but it doesn’t overpower. This is a nice well made quality Blanco. I’m glad I’m reviewing Lalo for a second time because I appreciate it more than when I first tried it. Go grab some! Salud!

Grass, agave, cinnamon, some fruit aroma. This smells real. Flavor and finish are clean and basic. A touch of agave sweetness in the flavor. This isn’t a complicated product, but it is a solid one.

Grass, cinnamon and cooked agave notes open to a hint of citrus (lemon). Natural sweet agave in the mouth with a short, spicy finish. Simple but pleasing.
