Tasted in Tlaquepaque at Lotecito, November 2022. Another solid one from Felipe and #1579.

Another home run from El Pandillo! Roasted agave around every corner, ample mint and black pepper on the mid palette. Citrus and green pepper on a soft, gentle finish. This is an exciting new brand, I expect great things in the future.

Another banger from 1579! Nose- agave, mango, grass, olive, clay, and wet earth. Taste- sweet cooked agave, earth, briny minerality, jalapeno Mouthfeel- oily goodness Finish- Medium/Long with some lingering spicy heat and dry to balance out any sweetness. Value- Sample provided but the price doesn't matter. These folks don't gouge and it's so good.

This is consistently good, it comes from the El Pandillo distillery. NOM 1579 on the bottle is always a safe bet.

On the nose, rich agave, minerals, and almost a touch of vanilla. There’s a green, vegetalness to it, and a light saline note. The flavors are so interesting. Cooked agave for days, tons of minerality and some earthiness, and a very distinct jalapeño note. I’ve always been surprised when people call that out but its 100% here, reminds me of my little jalapeño bush in our garden. Its so prominent that it almost tastes like an infusion, very clear. Delicious, full bodied blanco. Now if only I could track down a full size here in CA…rating 5/10 on price because I cant find much pricing info.

Not much to add to others comments except to say this Blanco smells just like El Pandillo...the porch for agave, the nearby ovens, milling and crushing, the juice pit for the mosto, yeast for fermentation. It's all here on the nose. Sipping brings a nice explosion of flavors carried by the ethanol, pepper, roast agave, a bit of earth and the minerals of the well water. Felipe has done it one more time.

By production notes, this would be similar to Terralta with oxygenation. There are noticeable differences though. The oxygenation helps refine the aroma, which I actually prefer to the Terralta blanco. On the palate, this tequila is very pleasing. There are a lot of vegetal and green notes, and they are subtle and well balanced. The minerality from the deep well water also adds to the aroma and flavor. The finish is nice and peppery, also quite long lasting.

Bold mineral and grassy notes, very full mouthfeel. I enjoyed it very much, another good offering from El Pandillo. However, I could see this being too much for people that like the more gentle profile that G4 or Volans has. Kind of reminds me of the “Fibroso” experiment (although not as good). Thanks Don Pepe for the sample! Had the opportunity to revisit and the finish definitely improved on the blanco vs. the sample.

NOM1579 - El Pandillo I can smell the cooked agave and then some freshly sliced green bell pepper. There is some minerality and hints of black pepper and wet clay. Its a nice balanced and clean aroma with no detectable alcohol vapors. There is a faint floral note that keeps the nose on the softer side. Overall I’d described the aroma as sweet agave and earthy. On the palate I get buttery cooked agave and natural agave sweetness. Then I get some vegetal notes; green pepper, jalapeño. There a nice minerality throughout and some black pepper on the back end. It has a nice mouthfeel and finish. The oxygenation keeps the flavors nice and rounded while the pepper still punches through and lingers on the finish. I don’t detect any alcohol burn on the finish.

Lot: 0001B40 bottled sometime in 2020, rest of date is blurry. Nose: clean & intense sweet cooked agave, citrus, floral aspects that I can’t pin point, just know it smells floral! Medium minerality and very low aroma of herbs. Palate: interesting mix and good balance of sweetness from the agave, sour and citrus, sort of like a grapefruit but much more aromatic because of the floral notes, soft and silky! Finish is medium to long and very interesting! The balance between the sweet & sour with citrus prolonged the finish even further. Beautiful!

Tasted at LA TequilaFest in a small, plastic sample cup. Big whiff of Agave, and the flavor was consistent with the nose. Can’t wait to inhale the aroma and taste at home in more familiar glassware. Regardless, this was one of my favorite tequilas featured at the event. I love NOM 1579 and admittedly was biased before the pour.

Don Vicent blanco tasting date: Aug 1, 2022 tasting samples received from North Texas Tequila Club Nose: good nose well-balanced; crisp, subtle, fruit up front, then agave pepper minerality earth/clay (didn't get the vanilla that others speak of) Taste: agave pepper minerality, earth/clay Finish: easy, some agave, spice heat,.subtle but good. Finish was a little short/flat (maybe because this sample shipment took almost 2 weeks to arrive from Texas in 95 degree temps) Notes: very similar to terralta. I will try again at some because i believe the samples may have been altered by the heat. I rated 1 pt lower than terralta because of the flat finish, and again, this may be because the sample spent time in high temps

This is a very well round tequila. The more you drink the more you want. I can definitely smell the minerals at first glance then smell of agave hits smell very good. You can definitely taste the cooked agave when you drink it the sweet taste along with the minerals make this my favorite Blanco.

Another great 1579 product! Everything I’ve come to love from El Pandillo…that minerality and cooked agave front and center on the nose and palate, and it carries all the way through the finish. Mouthfeel is excellent- doesn’t dissipate too quickly, and coats the mouth to experience this wonderful Blanco. Salud!

Aroma: Balanced cooked agave with delicate earthy/grassy notes, along with the welcoming of white pepper, underscored by a layer of fruity/sweet tones. Flavor: A lively entry of cooked agave, subtle sweetness and herbal grass framework with mineral notes. As I kept sipping, the complexity that melted in my palate was delightful: right away white pepper and green pepper were present, followed by a mixture of green bartlett pear and apple. In addition, a citrus layer of orange and orange peel make an appearance. Personality: cooked agave, mineral/earth, grass Sweet: Sweet mint, bartlett pear, golden apple Citrus: orange, orange peel, Herbs: anise, mint, spearmint, licorice & herbal Floral: orange blossom Spices: White pepper & green bell pepper Process: Mineral No defects Texture/finish: The attack is friendly, buttery and with a NOM 1579 personality, through the midpalate you'll encounter a crisp sensation that spreads into sweet, citrus and spices notes (described above) that extends into a fresh mint/herbal finish. There's a minimal alcohol detection. Another great tequila from El Pandillo

Nose: Cooked agave, vegetal, earthy (West Texas after a rain) tones with slight hint of vanilla. Flavors: wet earth, vegetal, hints of black pepper and a skosh of vanilla. Summary: yet another outstanding Blanco from NOM 1579. A perfect blend of earthy and vegetal notes.
