Nose: Some alcohol followed by peppery sweet smoked agave

Initial Taste: Smoked agave immediately into peppery agave

Body: Light

Finish: Light to medium burn sweet smoky agave maybe some metallic very little if it is there a little astringent you do smell pine a bit in the nose and this comes out in the finish. Very well rounded tequila what you get in the nose you will get in the finish

Price: Good price for an excellent tequila. Way better then Patron and a little cheaper.

I have had Casa Noble Crystal and reposado unfortunately I can not find the single barrels or the anejo. I have looked more for the anejo then the others, it turns out the distributor in TN doesn't buy it so it is not sold here =\. Casa Noble is hands down the best tequila I have had and in my opinion can not be compared to the others because of the dedication put into making it. This tequila is WAY better then Patron, Patron should be put on the middle or second to last shelf in my opinion, it just doesn't have character. The price for this tequila is in a good spot, it doesn't stop the ordinary person from enjoying it.

Tasted 2/10/12, current bottling, from a Riedel glass.

Very (crystal) clear. Swirling produced moderate tears with fast legs, indicating moderately thin body.

Initial nose is creamy cooked agave, secondarily followed by a heavy black pepper (which I found delicious!). Hints of bell pepper and green banana.

First taste impression was mildly sweet agave, almost buttery. Again, black pepper on the mid-tongue, a little warming but great flavor. That carried all the way through the finish, which was quite long and ended with a hint of anise bitterness.

I bought this specifically for a cocktail I have in mind, but I will enjoy sipping whatever is left of the bottle. I'm surprised at some of the other reviews here, as I find nothing in this blanco that I don't enjoy, but obviously tastes vary. I heartily recommend it.

One characteristic that quickly differentiates this tequila from other blancos is how incredibly delicate and light it is on the palate. If you enjoy a more vegitile, earthy tequila, I would highly recommend this one.

Nose: (pretty much the same as everyone has already said) Earthy, Strong Agave as well.
Initial Taste: starts out being sweet and somewhat subtle to mildly peppery
Body: Crystal clear as the name would suggest.
Finish: Starts very smooth and warms up with agave and pepper but does not linger too long.

I paid $32.99 for it but have seen it priced as high as $42. This tequila is good to have around because it also mixes really well. I would recommend it in a Margarita or Paloma if you are overwhelmed by the nose.

I've had Casa Noble Crystal in my cabinet for a while now but never got around to a review. This tequila has the boldest agave smell and taste of any that I have tried thus far. It tends to be too overpowering for me but I could see where a person might like their agave to "hit them upside the head"...this one definitely does that! Body is decent and it has a nice consistency, but the taste is just too earthy and sharp for me to really love it. Maybe the fact that it's "organic" or triple distilled has something to do with that? Overall, I think it's a smooth tequila with a good alcohol balance on entry and at the finish, but the lack of any sweetness, citrus, or other complexities sort of push it to the back shelf for me. It has a nice bottle and it's worth a try.
