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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Incredible bottle. Aroma is top notch: agave, citrus , floral notes. Taste has agave all throughout, pepper, and a sweetness of red fruits and oak. All flavors are in harmony . It coats the mouth so well and most of the flavors for me, came after I swallowed the juice. It settles on the palette, and remains there.

Incredible aroma. The flavor for me did not match the incredible smell.

Very nice blonco. On the nose it has the typical cascahuin nose f agave, baking spices, minerality, right into a fruit like ripe grapes. The taste is wow very complex. Has a nice grape sickle taste (think of an orange crème sickle popsicle but with grape instead of oranges… but not artificial all natural tasting). Very good.

There's a lot going on here nice viscosity with lots of flavor. Grape influence shines through while maintaining the agave. Vanilla cinnamon mint Amos present. Must at to a collection.

Aroma and color are attractive. But that’s where it ends. Flavor is lacking in strong agave notes. Finish is short and poor. Points off for all that and also unsure if I would drink it again. More points off for price. I actually wonder if people’s rankings were influenced by the NOM.

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 is fruity, grassy, and sweet. Agave in the middle of the bouquet. Flavor is agave, citrus, brown sugar, and mineral. Well balanced and full bodied.

slightly aged in wine barrels and you can definitely tell from the looks of it - nice pink hue. As for the juice itself, amazing! Agave sweetness on the nose, hints of the wine definitely come through, a little brininess. Very refreshing to drink. A little spiciness throughout but finished smooth, hints of the wine come through, lots of agave. It has a nice sweetness as you finish each sip. I have to say that I’m a big fan of this one!

I’m not an expert tequila drinker, but it is delicious and has an incredible story. The family connection and influence of traditional tequila practices mixed with french heritage makes a flavor that is very fun - and embraces the spirit of joy and celebration with friends and family. It’s not just excellent in “Aspen ranch water” or topped on a traditional margarita, but as a sipping tequila it’s also exquisite. It’s a beautiful bottle to add to our bar cart, and thankfully more are coming.
