I just finished tasting FE Blanco for the first time. This blanco has a superb body, dense and oily. Succulent fresh agave notes tingle the nose right from the start, and those with a trained nose will most likely pick up the characteristic "peaty-tart" sensation from all quality puros from Los altos region, present also in the taste. In the mouth the texture is soft, almost puffy, a bit too sweet with solid roasted agave notes and firm, fresh agave accents and tangy molasses hints. I found it to be a bit too soft for my palate, smooth and refreshing like few tequilas I've tasted. The alcohol bite is strong but manageable, perhaps a bit soft for hardcore blanco fanatics, but in all, a very well structured blanco, capable of pleasing rookies and veterans alike, Perfect for sipping, not recommended for mixing! I really recommend trying Fina blanco, because it has a very natural taste, true agave character and very smooth for a blanco. ENJOYABLE.
