Having heard so many reports on Fortaleza, I just had to try it and I'm glad I did. Although I normally prefer reposados, this is one blanco that will always be on my favorites list. The bottle and label are nicely understated and I like the pina stopper. To me, some blancos have a raw, unfinished flavor that many like, but I find a bit crude. Not so with Fortaleza. Nice agave character without the alcohol burn that sometimes accompanies it. And it has a unique taste that I have trouble defining, but can only express as very pleasant.
