Bright agave with vegetal notes on nose. Hint of sweetness right as it hits the lips along with slight bitterness and pepper. Super creamy palate with a lingering warm finish. Wow don’t think I’ve tried something this creamy. Not my favorite profile but definitely would not turn down a pour. A very well done Blanco but price hurts it.

Wow. Just had a few samples at a tasting event but was blown away. Loads of flavor without too much punch.

Upgraded even higher from my video review to a 93. This is one of the best Blanco High proofs ever made

Quite vegetal, much minerality, and alcohol intensity.

On the nose: Subtle cooked agave (a bit muted), vegetal, black pepper, citrus, minerality, briny, yeasty and some herbal (thyme and rosemary) nuances Taste: Caramelized agave (agave forward), grapefruit, orange peel, bittersweet, licorice, herbal notes at the beginning. Midway you get a sensation of minerality, brininess, olive, and clove/spices/cinnamon. The finish showed nuances of peppermint, acetone and yeast (sour apple cider/mosto from the fiber fermentation). Finish was astringent.

Super delightful blend of bright fruity notes, tons of herbs, and deep agave sweetness - the flavors and sensations take me right to the front porch of El Pandillo. There is a really cool mouthfeel here, crisp yet full bodied at the same time with steely minerality on the finish. The agave in here is velvety and the way you feel after a glass, is the same. Another amazing addition to the Volans lineup, they get better every time.

One of the best high proofs I have tasted. Great mouth feel, creamy and delicious. Great spice and pepper notes with balanced sweet cooked agave

Nose: A full slap of fruity, spicy sweet agave. Green apples, lemon drops, white & green peppercorns. Cinnamon, mint and candied rosemary. Minerals and freshly clipped grass. Tinged with a slightly sour cider scent, and a playful tease of juicy fruit gum. Silky, sophisticated aromas. Flavors: Creamy, mouth filling sweet agave steals the show - simultaneously flirting with a punch of pepper and enticing salinity. A touch of almond paste marries with the fruit and spice. No ethanol ambush in store for you. Another masterfully made tequila from Felipe and Volans.

Lots of pepper on the nose. Cooked agave as well, but mainly pepper with subtle vegetal hints. Stings a bit too. Silky mouthfeel at first, but then a sudden punch of fire. Smokey pepper and agave that eventually gives way to hints of citrus and some earthy notes as well. Super long finish with a burn that hovers without losing its flavor. Very herbaceous. Damn, this bottle packs a punch. I’m curious to see how it opens up.

Initial smell was very clean with no traces of ethanol. Nose was fresh, vegetal, touch of mint, a little pine with Madera resemblance. Taste had lots of agave, light sweetness, some pepper and minerality, and the touch of Madera pine. Oily mouth feel, long finish with an initial mouth drying effect that improved with more sips. Would have liked to see the price more inline with the other 1579 HPs.

Strong peppery finish. Combined with agave favor makes it one of my favorites so far. Finding I like pepper finish in my tequilas.

Volans Still Strengh Balnco Lote 001 $99 USD @ Sip Tequila Overall: A Still Strengh that solidly belongs in an elite, small class. Love this offering from Volans slightly more than their 80-proof blanco. Aroma: Delicious, crisp, and inviting sweet cooked agave abound. Minerality of the rain water, white pepper, and delicate fruit and citrus notes float around. The nose is splendid. Taste: Rich, creamy cooked agave just sit on the tongue. Palm sugar sweetness and white pepper heat strike a glorious symmetry. Pear fruit, a light salinity, and slight floralness round out the tastes. The high proof really emboldens this spirit and creates a long lasting finish.

My #3 Blanco after Cascahuin Tahona Blanco and Fortaleza. I compare this more to wine than spirits. This is like a Napa Cab. Fruit forward with good complexity from the mineral character. More expensive than my top 2.

Buttery mouthfeel, sweet and minty agave, white pepper, anise. Wow, the finish is awesome as it lingers and delivers more flavors! Nice still strength!

Incredible mouth feel and smooth finish. dominant flavors of anise and simple sugar. The roasted agave and dissolved minerals meld into the body. A beautifully diverse expression from 1079.

The nose is good but faint with agave, minerals and olives. The flavor is tons of sweetness and citrus going into a long peppery/briny finish.

This is a tough high-proof to rate. Mainly, because it’s chaotic and not well balanced. That said, there were some very satisfying flavors (agave, lots of hot Pepper, black/white pepper corn, green apple and pear) that come in chaotically over a very long finish which kept me sipping. There is a prevalent burn that stays which is not satisfying at least to my palette. Made my tongue numb and stomach feel not quite achy but unpleasant. I decided to age this into an XA which turned out exceptionally well. A lot of the flavor notes I liked stayed with some added barrel notes and the heat subdued substantially. Mine was a medium toast French oak.

Wow!! I blind rated this. The aroma kept getting better for me. When I finally sipped it, I tasted familiarity: mint, agave, cut grass, pepper, and a bit of salinity. Finish was also great. Volans rocks!

106 Proof, it’s hot! But it’s also Volans from NOM 1579!
