Hello my tequila peoples. This Is it. My favriote blanco. It has and earthy and smooth agave taste. I rank'em like this from 3 to 1 ..#3. 1921 blanco #2 Fortaleza blanco #1 El Tesoro Blanco de Don Felipe. Classic stoned crushed 100% agave tequila. I highly enjoy this tequila.
A good brand, but this one really doesn't do it for me. The other reviews are spot on.
Aroma: Earthy and the olive smell is there. I do not care for green olives. It really spoils the agave for me.
Initial taste: Agave is stronger here, but the green olive is still present.
Body: Nice body and a smooth drink.
Finish: A nice burn and it's smooth going down. The lingering flavor is OK.
El Tesoro is a great brand and a very nice bottle. This particular tequila just isn't my cup of tea. If you like earthy tequilas and green olives, this is a great one for you. The price is a good one for a tequila of this caliber.
El Tesoro Platinum, begins with unsurpassed clarity and a very-long nose. It is difficult not to smell the green olive juice. The olives themselves have a sweeter smell that what I pick up in the tequila. The Blue Agave smell is next on the list followed by slight hints of citrus, black pepper, and finally juniper. All in all a very vegetal nose.
The initial taste is very intense and hits you quickly with a strong green olive and blue agave flavor, a light body and a very long finish that seems to linger for a while.
Great tasty sipping tequila. I take it straight but if that's too much try it on the rocks.
I drank this out of a medium size sniffer. The nose is loaded with strong notes of agave, hints of green olive and a distinct earthiness. The first sip offered a burst of agave with hints of a green grape like fruitiness. It's extremely smooth. A second sip brought more agave with hints of pine nuts and a trace of spicy cinnamon on the finish. A few more sips brought some hints of green olives, lots of agave and some peppery spiciness on a fairly long finish. For me this is a fairly complex tequila, that is very smooth and worthy of sipping.
