The blanco is my final review of the El Mayor line. El Mayor comes from NOM 1143 (Destiladora González González, SA CV) and is the high end tequila at a distillery that more often has budget brands (Exotico, Calle Azul, etc). As noted in previous reviews, the prices are all over the map on this brand. I've seen the blanco as cheap as $15 and as high as $40. It's most often in the $30 range. With all that said, the bottle is open and it's just waiting for me.



Price: $25-35/bottle

Aroma: A big nose of earthy cooked agave. A very nice smell that wafts well outside the glass.

Initial Taste: A nice cooked agave sweetness with just a hint of white pepper. Basic, but tasty.

Body: Medium body. Nice oils. Again, a very basic flavor with an earthy profile. A nice agave sweetness balanced with agave and a peppery kick.

Finish: It finishes like it starts. Nice peppery linger with plenty of earth to round it out. It doesn't hang around too long, but it's a nice ending.

To me, this is your consummate B grade tequila. That's not at all a bad thing given the good distribution and the reasonable price point. I think this would be a really good option for those who want an affordable tequila with an earthy profile. The bottle looks great and you know exactly what you're getting. It might not be my favorite blanco, but I dig what it brings to the table.

One of my favorite blanco tequilas. Smooth and clean with very little burn. Hints of pepper and spice.

Was this review helpful to you? 
I was really looking forward to trying this Tequila.
Aroma: Very earthy, black peppery
Initial taste: Starts with a black peppery taste
Body: very intense, earth agave. could be one of the most earthy tequilas Ive tasted.
Finish and duration: A mild alcohol burn ending with a peppery finish of medium duration.

I did like this tequila alot, especially for its earthy taste. Even though I dont consider it one of my favorites, I would recommend it to a tequila fan with a very earthy preference. A very decent B grade tequila.

Tasted with ice on May 3, 2008 while having pork tacos, plus chips and salsa.

El Mayor Blanco

Color: clear
Aroma: agave
Taste: black pepper and light on the tongue with help from the ice finishing with a strong blanco burn that cut through the ice

This is a blanco that I will purchase to try without the ice and in cocktails to give a more proper review, as I am sure the food was impacting my taste buds. Until the I still favor for blancos either the Chinaco, Corralejo or the Milagro. My current top three blanco picks as of the writing of this review, though this El Mayor may give them a run.

El Mayor Tequila Blanco, NOM 1143, Batch #244, Bottle #52. I've tasted this spirit on numerous occasions primarily in Margarita's, but also in shots, trying to see if I've missed some positive attribute. It's been the same every time. Neutral agave nose with medium alcohol. The initial taste is floral & peppery with alcohol overtones & after burn. Light to medium body with a lingering, middle of the tongue finish that rolls off the palate in a diminishing fashion. I would have rated the presentation higher if it wasn't for the disappointing plastic cork. Uniquely shaped bottle. Reasonably priced. B-, not top shelf. Más refinamiento necesitado aquí!
