  1. Manic Black Edition

    Tequila Extra Añejo — Jalisco, Mexico

    Tasted

    4.5 out of 5 stars
    Neat. Beautiful amber copper color. Nose is oak, smoke, caramel, cooked agave, cocoa, butterscotch, mint. Flavor is cooked agave, oak, light caramel, char, pepper, vanilla, mild green herbs like tarragon, cilantro.. It finishes moderately long and changes over time, Starting lightly agave sweet with cocoa, vanilla oak and a little tongue numbing alcohol..that slowly fades bringing back some faint barrel sweetness and black pepper Overall, lots of flavors to find throughout a sip and nicely balanced, Medium mouthfeel. Darn good value for a supposedly 5 year extra anejo. Nice crossover for aged rye lovers

  2. Patrón Reposado Tequila

    Tequila Reposado — Highlands, Mexico

    Tasted

    Neat. Nose is very faint. No ethanol burn, citrus peel, white pepper, oak. Taste starts a little sweet, but quickly becomes bitter. Citrus rind, tamarind, bitter orange, white pepper, anise, a little vanilla Longish finish of orange rind, saccharine, and french oak. Mouthfeel is thin and finishes very dry. No 'Curevo Gold bite' whatsoever I feel like I'm supposed to hate this, but I don't. I haven't tasted a tequila quite like this. Dry, bitter, citrusy. I can definitely see how the bitterness would turn off a lot of people that love a nice rich fruity tequila. This is a 180 from something like a Clase Azul Rep. Fans of a dry IPA or a Belgian Wit, with an orange, just might like this.

  3. Casamigos Blanco Tequila

    Tequila Blanco — Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico

    Tasted

    3.75 out of 5 stars
    Tasting neat. Nose is round and rich, agave, vanilla, and a touch of anise. The taste is rich, sweet, smooth, artificial vanilla, cream soda, some light herbal notes of anise, mint, cilantro at the end. Fairly thick mouthfeel. The finish is a bit lingering..mostly saccharine and that vanilla flavoring. Not much burn Not a bad drink. Probably a nice gateway splurge tequila for those looking for life after Cuervo Gold as it is very pretty, but not particularly complex. Questionable value locally for $46. There is a nice 4 pack of 375ml of all the products, so I'd recommend that route for the curious

  4. El Padrino De Mi Terra Extra Anejo

    Tequila Extra Añejo — Mexico

    Tasted

    Neat from a new bottle. Nose is sweet, loads of caramel, oak, cocoa, agave, pepper. Very little heat. Taste is very sweet. Caramel, agave, milk chocolate, a little oak and smoke, and a little cherry?, cinnamon, and black pepper. Finish is, surprise, sweet..cocoa, black pepper. Medium rich mouthfeel and very smooth. It's tasty and easy to drink, but in an artificial kinda way. I'm sure this is an additive bomb. It's almost rummy and schnappy, but with more kick, yet still smooth I'm sure it will be a pleaser to those who aren't too familiar with tequila or if you're not in the mood to be critical. Juice is probably 3 for connoisseurs , and 4+ for value. It is what it is. I'll have no trouble secretly finishing this bottle

  5. 3 Amigos Organic Blanco

    Tequila Blanco — Mexico

    Tasted

    4.0 out of 5 stars
    Neat from a freshly opened bottle. Nose is sweet, agave, fruity, slight minerals and herbal notes. Taste is true to nose. Agave nectar, tropical fruit, a little smooth vanilla, and green herbs and a whisper of mint and hot cinnamon. Body is moderately light and pretty smooth. Finish is pretty long and mostly saccharine sweet and drying, with that cinnamon building up a little over time. Not a bad sipper. Not super complex, but not boring and very drinkable. Not many organics available at this price. Would purchase again at this price

  6. Siete Leguas Blanco Tequila

    Tequila Blanco — Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico

    Neat from a freshly opened bottle Nose is agave, white pepper, and earthy..faintly funky hay Taste is sweet, agave, tropical fruit, cinnamon candy, minerals, and hint of that hay and some herbs. Moderately rich mouthfeel. Finish is pretty long, most notably that cinnamon, minerals, and that earthy hay. There's a lot to taste here. I think that yeast really sets this apart. It's sweet and fruity from the highland agave, yet has that earthy, rustic, slightly funky side from the yeast. It's a nice contrast that gives it balance and is definitely a sipper to exercise those taste buds. It may not be for everyone..but if you like good tequila and good cheese, I think you'll love it

  7. Herencia Mexicana Blanco Tequila

    Tequila Blanco — Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico

    Neat from a freshly opened bottle: Nose is agave, citrus, grassy, floral, herbal. Hints of tarragon and anise. Touch of clean ethanol keeps it bright, but not harsh. Very pleasant. Taste is sugar cane, agave syrup, citrus, tropical fruits, fresh green herbs such as tarragon, cilantro, anise, and mint, hint of cinnamon. Finish is fairly short, mild sweetness, mild cinnamon, and a bit tart. Moderately thin mouthfeel and no burn This may be my favorite highland blanco yet. It has all the nice, pretty, bright and fruity flavors, and then adds some light herbs and a tart finish that adds a lot of complexity in just the right amount. I haven't tried the more aged varieties, but I'd be afraid the wood would mask these wonderful flavors. Superb Value IMO

    Neat. Nose is fruity, herbal, floral, agave, vanilla, oak, touch of white pepper at the end. Taste starts agave sweet, tropical fruits, oaky vanilla, wildflower honey that's hard to pinpoint specific herbs, then soft peppery oak for balance on the pretty side. It's got a nice floral sweet bitter finish that lasts a decently long time. Overall. it's a very pretty, almost feminine, tequila that is perfectly balanced by the barrel that only adds some more masculine notes while not distracting from those qualities.

    Neat. Nose is bright with oak, fruit (brandy/cognac), caramelized agave, and a very slight vanilla and cinnamon. Taste is agave, white sugar, caramel, oak, cinnamon. Mouthfeel is pretty crisp. Finishes with saccharine, cinnamon, nutmeg, and oak..very fall like. Those cognac barrels take this a level up from the distillery's Casa Noble Anejo. Mulled wine and agave nectar.. Beautiful

    Tasting neat. Wow what a nose. Sweet, pretty, very fruity..like candied mangoes and peaches and a little anise. Rich mouthfeel, agave nectar, tropical fruits, anise, soft black pepper. The finish is sweet, peppery, and a little tart Overall pretty smooth with just enough bite. The nose is amazing, and the taste isn't far behind. A very 'pretty' tequila with some complexity. My favorite Los Altos blanco to date.
