Floral, agave, sweet red wine, and hay on the nose, this smells great! I taste nice notes of agave and black pepper. Flavor is a notch below the amazing smell, as its got a slight bitter twang like over tart fruit. Nice legs but the finish is fairly short.
Cooked agave, minerality, grapes on the nose. Cooked agave black pepper , minerality grapes on the mouth… long finish
Lightly floral with a clean minerality melded with cooked agave aromas on the nose. Light sweetness on the palate, mild and pleasant. A dry finish with a delicious burst of agave and light pepper, mixed with lingering floral notes. Update: On a blind test, detected more bitterness on the finish.
Nose: cooked agave, essence of red wine, ripe red fruit, floral, light citrus, wet dirt, fresh cut hay, and some mint Flavor: cooked agave, with nice cooked agave sweetness, creamy mouth feel, black pepper, some fruitiness, and mint mid palate Finish: short and peppery
a nice marriage of a slightly high-proof blanco and a Bordeaux Wine barrel. It's fruity and floral, and it's unique and well made. Lot1(172)=89, Lot2(237)=91, Lot3(311)=91
Montagave Blanco Heritage ventures into a merge of the Old & New World by merging Tequila craftmanship and Bordeaux distinctive personality. This Blanco tequila rests in Bordeaux wine barrel for 29 days to create an attractive rose-gold champagne color hue that instantly catches anyone's eyes. Once you dive in, you're received by a fresh and floral aromatic bouquet that is complemented by the agave richness and invites you to delight on it. Aroma: Fresh and crisp floral/fruity profile, that doesn't overpower the cooked agave presence. Both layers work on a very balanced way and provide just the right complexity for any drinker to get curious about what's next. Sweet citrus and baking spices nuances also say hello towards the end. Notes: cooked agave, plum, grapes, dried cherries, apple, orange, flowers, white pepper & baking spices. Mineral personality. Flavors: This profile has a creamy/buttery entrance with minimal alcohol attack (obtained from a malolactic fermentation). The cooked agave sweetness has been maintained, but also elevated from the berry-like symphony obtained from the aging method. It is slightly complex, but very enjoyable for any type of drinker, meaning notes are very friendly and familiar making it easy to sip. As you keep sipping, notes evolve towards a fruity layer composed of grapes, plum, prunes, licorice, and dried fruits. Accompanied by a sweet citrus presence of orange and grapefruit, leaving just a small tart touch. The finish does leave a spice kick (white pepper, cinnamon & nutmeg) that I wasn’t anticipating, but is still great. The end is short and tannic (dry), a sensation I mostly enjoy in wine, but pleasant in this profile. Notes: cooked agave, butter, prune, grapes, cherries, berry, dried fruit, grapefruit, orange, licorice, baking spices, raisins, mineral. Price: slightly overpriced at $75+
Aroma: Cinnamon and spice. Anise and vanilla Fruity, apple, plum and ripe berries. Flavor: A mineral spritz to the palate. Agave, almond, licorice. Subtle pepper that gains traction as it opens up. A rich buttery/salty feeling on the tongue. A very easy sipper - but still has enough going on to hold your attention. The brief barreling in Bordeaux casks creates an enigmatic profile. The total package works. Finish: Short but pleasant. A hint of tannic bitterness.
This Blanco has been rested for 29 days in wine barrels from Bordeaux, France. That gives this Blanco tequila a very pretty rose gold hue. I first smell agave and minerals before a floral fragrance appears. The fragrance is light and sweet with a hint of red grapes. It’s a very pleasant experience. I taste the agave first and foremost but simultaneously some minerality and muted pepper appear. Throughout the sip there is a hint of a juicy red plum and grape notes that continues into the finish. The pepper quickly gives way while the sweetness stays. The finish is short but it it leaves you wanting another sip. If a tequila could be light but flavorful and simple why still having complexity then this is it. Every Blanco and Reposado lover should have this tequila in their collection. Salud!
First impression is that the nose is excellent, but also a bit more pleasing than on the palate. The palate is definitely delicious, though. I've not had many blancos rested in oak, but this is definitely nice. Suave's lunar rested blanco comes to mind. Great creaminess that I associate with the process at Cascahuín. The wine barrel adds a dynamic to the tequila that I'll have to study more to better appreciate it.
Fun! Different. Bravo to those in life willing to take risks and try new things. Tasting notes to follow. I’ll have to sit with this longer…
Earthy sweetness. The agave is there, clearly, but it’s more rounded off and I’m getting something like a custard, maybe flan. On the palate, I’m immediately struck by how little heat there is for an 82 proof tequila. Very oily and almost creamy, lots of agave. This one evolves quickly, I’m getting earthy and olive brine notes, reminiscent of Fortaleza for me. But then my next sip is all agave and maybe a hint of grape. A very dry finish, clean and the earthiness lingers. This is definitely a good tequila. It’s tasty, drinks super easy, and it has a simple complexity to it. On some sips, all I get is cooked agave, in others I get that earthiness and olive brine, and the barest hint of grapes. No two sips were the same for me. Very interesting, but at $75 + $15 for shipping + taxes, you’re looking at nearly $100 per bottle and that’s where it loses points for me. I wonder if this would hold up as well in blind tastings. Update: Trying the third batch and this is fantastic. Finish is much longer, very earthy and vegetal. I bought two bottles and I’m happy I did. Maybe my palate has changed but I’m enjoying this much more than the first batch. Still a little pricy but very good.
Agave really shines through on the nose. There’s a nice citrus aroma along with some oak and a healthy amount of vegetal aroma. The flavor is very well balanced. An agave sweetness comes through. What I love is the grape/fruitiness that comes through so well. This tequila is so easy to drink. Refreshingly light but also a juicy mouth feel. It’s a pleasure to drink.
Aromas of wet earth, mint, hay, slight olive, and definitely a touch of wine grapes from 29 days spent in Bordeaux barrels, but the Cascahuin blanco elements are what shine. Sweet cooked agave in the mouth with a touch of black pepper in the back, and medium oiliness. No real finish, but this one sure is easy to drink!
I guess a tequila can be both simple and complex at the same time. This is a totally different flavor profile for Cascahuin, which has just been on a roll with great releases. This one has a lot of agave, fruit, grapes (from the wine casks it rested in), some butter and hay in the back, but lots of natural sweetness to make it delicious. The finish is short and clean (“smooth!”) which makes this insanely easy to drink. It has a slightly dry finish and lingering mouthfeel. I’m going to buy a case of this if I can!
Lot 3, what a fantastic tequila. the wine barrel doesn't overpower but adds to the Blanco flavors. found that even non tequila drinkers love this expression. A definite winner
Big Cascahuin fan here, so I’ve waited for this release for quite sometime. I believe this is Lote 2 or 2nd batch. Light agave on the nose, slight alcohol burn on front. Next is agave, mint across the mid palate. Nice vanilla mixed with fruit on the backend. Very nice! Also, quite expensive, that’s the ONLY downside. $100usd
Very very smooth. Floral with a little sweetness of the grapes. Such a good tequila! Add to favorites!
This one for me was definitely a little unique for me for a blanco. Smells a little bit more on the sweet side. Get notes of cooked agave, flowers, and wine For taste very similar to my aroma. I get that cooked agave up front, flowers, wine, pepper and shorter finish. Very very easy to sip on.
Lot 311. Whoa, this stuff is Amazing. The nose is very unique… baked agave, cinnamon, flowers and a bit of wine. It’s super creamy and coats the palate perfectly. Agave, cinnamon, earth, baking spices and a touch of fruit on the palate. It’s quite sweet to me but in an extremely clean and pleasant way. Glad I bought 2 bottles, and I’m guessing I’ll be buying more.
Lote: 3 Aroma: Earthy. Wet ground. Flavor: Agave Heavy earthiness Minerals A little bit of fruit I feel like it’s been over-hyped. I was disappointed with the first tasting. It’s a good blanco, not a great blanco for me.
Lot 311. Day 2 notes. Aroma: Rustic. Cinnamon. Mint. White pepper. Violets. Light blood/red meat. Taste: Clean. Naturally sweet—diluted cane sugar. Minimal tobacco, slight tannin. Cooked agave. Artichoke dipped in drawn butter. Feel: moderate viscosity; round mouthfeel. Finish: short. About the only negative here; finish is gone in under half a minute, and is simply a cane sugar note. Very little else. Other folks say they get the fruitiness of the wine in this; I do not. I get zero wine or barrel presence, in fact, save for the gorgeous pink hue. I need to do a side by side of this and Tahona. I’d think they’d compare quite well.
This one is a good scent on the nose. Upfront you get this nice smell of citrus notes and hint of agave. The taste a very earthy taste, but the finish is very nice and so pleasing
Lot 3. Fascinating. Very complex and different. Peppery and grassy and earthy. Bordeaux barrels are imparting such a uniqueness I don’t normally get, with a strong 1123 presence in the base.

Light wood and wine barrel notes. The agave shines here. Cooked agave, light red fruit flavors. Very balanced.
