    Rating: 15/23 For those who taste Fortaleza Blanco and say "this is too bitter, tart, savory and oily", this is perhaps a good tequila. It has a genuine tequila nose with stewed agave, lime, and some savory, oily, herbaceousness. There's nothing exciting going on with the nose, but there's nothing super exciting. Based on the authentic and moderately complex nose, this is a solid tequila that I would be happy to drink. The palate has a nice balance of bitter oiliness and sweetness with the stewed agave making a clear appearance, but also some nice lime leaf and a clean creek mineral note that I expect more from vodka. There's something a bit savory and oily too, as well as a bit of cinnamon, white pepper, and ginger. It really does taste like a mellower Fortaleza Blanco, which isn't a bad thing. It's a quite representative tequila without being too aggressive, so it could be a good stepping stone from Espolon for somebody leaving the shelter of the mixto realm. The finish has a bit too much oil and not enough of the other flavors for my taste. Overall, it's quite a balanced tequila with solid complexity and flavor. It isn't my favorite, but I'd be fine drinking it and the only reason I'd hesitate to recommend it is the fairly high price tag. I'm going 14 to 17 here, so a 15 for now based on the nice nose and palate, but general weakness and lackluster finish.

    Rating: 12/23 This is a pretty bland Blanco, which is disappointing and frankly not acceptable at its price. It's totally adequate as a sipper and there's a little bit going on, but it really isn't very interesting. There's a bit of prickly spice to it, but it's spared from alcohol flavor and harshness. The nose is light, but there's more to it than El Padrino Blanco. The nose is really vegetal with squash and a hint of herbal as well as a fair amount of mineral. It smells mild, but not like alcohol. There's definitely a bit of stewed agave flavor, but it's not super toasty and roasted. The palate is light and full of mineral. There's a slight numbing character too it and prickly spiciness. There's a bit of vegetal note with some odd wet bread flavor like San Matias Legado Blanco and Gran Centenario Reposado have. There's a fair amount going on here, but I can't say I love it. There's a fair bit of spiciness and some minerality. It's quite light. I like it better than El Padrino Blanco, but it's not all that great. It's fine, I guess. I'm thinking 12ish.
