Clean and lovely legs and tears. The aroma is a brilliant pepper, cooked agave, and minerals which carry through to the taste with a somewhat oily mouthfeel that is nearly perfect in texture for me. Medium/long finish that ends with some black pepper and and nice heat. I tasted this one blind and was not at all surprised when it was revealed. Currently my #1 out of 1579 and, with the G4 repo being my going favorite regularly available in that expression, that's saying something for me!

Cristal Clear juice. Nose: cooked agave, thyme, smoke, mineral, tropical fruit, citrus, sage. Need to oxygenate before tasting to appreciate all the aromas. Flavor: sweet agave, pepper, olive, tropical fruit. Finish nice and long.

If the G4 Blanco 80 proof is all cooked agave, grass, and black pepper; this is all cooked agave, black pepper, cinnamon, and alcoholic heat. I can see how the heat here may turn some people off since it certainly isn't as subtle as other high proofs. But there's still that classic El Pandillo minerality alongside some light fruits and citrus. Adding a few drops of water helps quell the heat if the alcohol proves to be too much. EDIT - I've let this open up a bit more and I'm getting lots of green olive too. Definitely take the extra time to let this one breathe.

This tequila needs to sit and open up. You also need to take your time with this, there is a lot going on with the nose, so do some exploring. This has the complexity of the G4 coming out of 1579. Nose: cooked agave, alcohol, cinnamon, wet cement after a summer rain, citrus (tangerine) vanilla, jalapeño, sweetness of grilled pineapple and peach Flavor: starts off hot, has a creamy and spicy mouth feel, cooked agave, hot cinnamon like the candy atomic fire balls, and citrus Finish: starts with sweet ripe fruit, gets spicy like green peppers, the cooked agave comes through, and finishes hot and leaves your mouth tingling Yes I would cook with this like flaming of butter sauté shrimp, scallops, or clams.

Tasting this G4 108 and a Spring Water 110 side by side. 108 is hot at first, tip of tongue numbing. Several small sips taken over 10 minutes or so have less effect and I think we're ready to taste. Technically the single water G4 55% is not the same as the blended water G4 108. Made at the same distillery these have many similarites but also numerous differences. Mouth effect is really almost 180° with the buzz right up front on the 108 assaulting the tongue whereas the SW 110 is at the end more near the back of the throat as you swallow. Great stuff in both bottles though, no doubt.

Nose: The nose needs some breathing time - you will be rewarded with subtle transitions. Opening charge brings minerals, a cellar note and rich cooked agave with undercurrents of baked pineapple. A bit later citrus blooms. Then a shift toward vegetal/herbal aromas: thyme, sage and dried oregano. Next warm “barrel-like” spices emerge: cinnamon, dried ginger, vanilla and star anise. And the agave takes on a more caramel like aroma, complementing everything that has come before it. Flavor: Somewhat creamy in the mouth. Yet with a blast of heat: black pepper, spicy cardamom, and cinnamon red hots, that sends some fire to the back palate. The herbal notes retreat somewhat, leaving the lively spices dancing on my tongue. Finish: Trace bitterness. Light colored fruit, pineapple and agave hangin’ on for the ride. Be forewarned, it finishes a little hot.

G4 108 Nose: AGAVE BOMB. As soon as i started pouring it into my Riedel glass, I could smell it. Definitely some ethanol, but not as potent as you’d expect from a 54% unaged spirit. Minerals, a touch earthy, and a fleeting hint of cinnamon. Palate: Agave, front and center. First taste is just all cooked agave for me. Doesn’t burn like you’d think, though some ethanol is there. Very warming and delicious. Second tasting, getting pepper very clearly. Citrus comes through, more lemon than orange. A slight black olive note that quickly fades. Agave really is the star here. Verdict: Hot DAMN this is so amazing. Felipe knows his blancos, this blows standard G4 out of the water, and that’s saying something because that is an exquisite blanco. Felipe Camarena, you beautiful genius, this is a high proof blanco that will be on my shelf forever. The only reason I might give Tapatio 110 the edge is because they’re roughly on par price wise, but Tapatio is 1L. If I take value out of the equation though…G4 is one of the best blancos I’ve ever had, I’ll just say that.

Green olives and minerals on the nose. Very oily on the palate with lots of black pepper. Tasted alongside arteNOM 1579 blanco. Much more interesting. Much longer finish

Brilliant juice! The aroma is full of cooked agave and and the finish is top notch. . . I always have G4 Blanco and Repo on hand to sip. I bought this in thoughts of using it for cocktails. That’s changed now, no way will I mix this.

Amazing flavor with agave and citrus notes. Flavor is strong with agave a little pepper. Slight burn on the finish, but dissipates quickly.

Don't be afraid of the 108. There is a lot of pepper and agave finished by an oily mouth feel. What sets this apart is the mouth and lip tingle. Most high proof products struggle with alcohol burn but this has a very unique tingle. It is difficult to describe but it is enjoyable and not burning. Try it. Don't be scared.
