This was my first blanco.

Very different to the various repos and anejos I've tried.

The first impression I get is this: mellow. It's a very mellow tequila.

It has a kind of creamy flavour (and nose) to it that I like, followed by a pleasant heat. The nose is a little fuely though. Strangely, for a 100% agave tequila, there's a very very faint reminiscence of light rum in there. You wouldn't notice it if you weren't analysing it though.

If you're expecting full-flavoured loud tequila, this isn't for you, it's much more subtle. For the price (£23.39) I cannot fault it. It wasn't what I was expecting, but I'll definately be adding this to the favourites list.

It slips down very easily; so much so that I would almost label this 'dangerous' :)

I'm not a fan of this in margaritas though. Maybe I need to adjust my recipe, but it just didn't cut through the other ingredients as much as other tequilas.

I must be heathen - sipping blancos but making margs with anejos ;D

Presentation isn't up to much though - cheap printing, not a particularly interesting bottle.

Purchased a glass for $8 at Malo in Los Angeles. This blanco was very decent, I would put it on the lighter side. It's one of those I would definitely recommend to new blanco drinkers as it is subtle and won't scare you away.

Aroma: A light floral and fruity nose. Very subtle yet pleasant.
Initial Taste: A mildy heated entry, a semi oily mouth feel, it was sweet with no bitterness. First taste was fruit.
Body: A pleasant agave body with mild hints of earth smoke and spice.
Finish: An unheated finish of short duration with a lingering aftertaste of agave.

Arette Blanco ? NOM 1109 ? Tasted 3/1/07. The tequila is clear in color. Beginning with intense earthy, fruity, spicy, and floral aromas, the deeper aromas include moderate smoke scents. On the tip of the tongue there is a mellow sensation that is followed by a sweet taste with no bitterness. Upon tasting, the tequila has intense agave and earth with moderate spice flavors. Arette Blanco tequila finishes with a medium duration of flavor and slight numbing alcohol intensity. Overall, I rate this tequila at the ?B+? level.
