I must say this is one of the finest blancos I have had. It has a great nose of agave and the entry has no hard alcohol taste or smell to it. As it rolls around in the mouth the flavors come out and one feels the richness of its fullness, lots going on. Coating the mouth - not burning - very smooth. The finish is great with smells and flavors and it is so easy to drink, it is dangerous, as it goes down so smooth and easy. I left a bottle (my second one)in the car for the day and it has been very cold out and when I opened it up and poured a glass it was fantastic. I am overall a blanco drinker but I will have to go and try the reposado and anejo. I look for new tequilas and this has my attention.

I live in Oregon and the Fina comes from a local importer. I have to agree with the previous review but I would give them higher marks in the Smoothness and Presentation categories. Love the bottle and comes in a nice box.

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.
