El Mayor's blanco is produced from 100 % Blue Weber agave harvested in the Highlands of Jalisco. It's bottled at distillery, NOM 1143, in Puerto Altata, Guadalajara, in an attention-getting "swoosh"-shaped bottle of which this was # 47 from batch 1478. As befits its lack of barrel aging, the color is clear.

Tasting Notes

"The nose is light but also somewhat hot, a quality that's enhanced by pepper but balanced by an agave sweetness. The heat remains on the palate where is gets some help from a fruity sweetness reminiscent of Poire Williams eau-de-vie, all of which is bolstered by additional, though not distinctive, spice. The finish is short (but not sweet) and peppery."
