Tierra de Ensueño Blanco (Land of Dreams) - Sergio Cruz and Oscar Vazquez Camarena came together to develop and craft this unique Blanco tequila that’s made at NOM1580 - Hacienda El Olvido in Jesus Maria, Jalisco (Highlands). It’s rested in Rare Ex-Bourbon (possibly Weller 12) White Oak barrels for 14 days and it’s 84 proof - 42%ABV. - The nose is full of fresh agave and bright citrus rind that sits upon some earthy clay that’s packed with minerality. There’s a dry white oak barrel aroma that could also be interpreted as a dry hay aroma. Hints of white pepper dance about along with some celery and almond notes. The added proof is just enough to make this nose aromatic. This nose makes you want to take a sip. - There’s some nice density of flavors that are mildly complex. The agave is buttery and earthy. There’s some earthy notes of peppercorn and celery. The earthiness hits almost simultaneously as the sweet buttery cooked agave. It’s has a full mouthfeel. The spicy characteristics hits on the mid palate and linger into the medium finish. There’s some nice spice that’s most likely coming from the barrel because this blanco is rested in a used bourbon barrels for 14 days. There’s some agave sweetness but also some nice savory notes. The proof helps the finish to linger and the uniqueness begs for you to keep taking sip after sip. Enjoy responsibly.

In the aroma, this tequila offers a delicate blend of subtle cooked agave, accompanied by notes of white pepper, a hint of citrus, and herbal undertones. The nose presents a harmonious balance of earthy and spicy elements, setting the stage for what's to come. Upon tasting, the flavor profile unfolds with a symphony of flavors that mirror the aroma. The cooked agave takes center stage, complemented by caramel sweetness and a kick of white pepper. Subtle hints of orange peel add a refreshing citrus brightness, while spearmint brings a cool, herbal twist. Layers of baking spice and mineral notes provide depth and complexity, leading to a briny undertone that adds dimension to the palate. The experience concludes with a lingering astringent finish, leaving a satisfying sensation that beckons for another sip. Overall, this tequila offers a medium complexity tasting journey due to its minimal aging period showcasing a well-balanced interplay of flavors and textures that will delight the senses of any enthusiast.

Tasted at MBTC 2023. Heavy oak influence despite only being aged for 14 days. Quite interesting. Would definitely sample again or buy a bottle if I came across it.

Clean agave aroma. No bitterness with a subtle sweetness that comes from the fully matured highland agave and the aging in rare whiskey barrels. Exceptionally smooth mouthfeel and finish, especially for a zero additive tequila that has only been aged for 2 weeks. No lime needed. Definitely would recommend to anyone.

Aroma is incredible. A little bit funky in a good way, likely from the slow fermentation and 3-yeast blend. Very pleasant. Although it’s from a different distillery, smells familiar to other amazing work from Sergio Cruz. I don’t think Sergio has done another barrel-rested blanco but could be wrong - definitely at the top of his game right now. A good amount of oak on the nose also from resting in Weller 12 year casks for two weeks. Not overpowering which lets the traditional blanco notes still shine. I get some lime and black pepper with the cooked agave. Oscar Vasquez is the master blender and did an exceptional job as well. Him and Sergio are a dream team. Upon tasting, the first thing I notice is the lush mouth feel. The oils are definitely present from the minimal non chill filtering. Full flavor at 42% but Very soft & Silky smooth. Fairly Complex but also very easy sipper. Cooked agave, bit of citrus and pepper. Finished super nice with notes of cinnamon and spice, a hint of oak and vanilla from the wheated bourbon casks. Almost starts like a blanco and transitions to a reposado by the finish. Very unique and reasonable price. Would definitely recommend.
