FORTALEZA BLANCO STILL STRENGTH FORTY SIX (46%ALC)
Tasting Notes FROM THE MAKER
Aromas of fruit, baked fully-ripened agave, green olive, and earth are invitingly present. Slightly brighter and a touch more rustic than the regular blanco, the accents of butter, olive, earth, black pepper, and vegetal qualities in the flavor are enhanced because it comes straight from our small copper pot still, without adding water prior to bottling.
For years, the only way to sample this was to visit our distillery in Tequila, Jalisco. Until now.

I expected the taste and aroma to be similar to the Fortaleza Blanco but I was surprised how much more there was. The texture in the mouth is creamy and the agave flavor is much more pronounced than the blanco. This tequila is one of my favorite for all uses.
Smooth but Strong, I'm new to drinking tequila so I did some research on which brand to buy, Fortaleza Tequila stood out from the rest from family history to how they make tequila " The Old Fashion Way" cooking the agave in a small brick oven, stone crushing the agave to copper pots for distillation. Great Tequila at its finest in my opinion. I placed an order on 10/11/18 from Old Town Tequila and received my order the next day on 10/12/18, great Packaging and prompt shipping.
Excellent. Surprised me how much difference there is between Fortaleza and regular run of the mill tequilas. Don't think I will be happy with Tres Generaciones anymore. Need to order another bottle.
I have must say I was rather impressed by this tequila! Still strength is what I like very nice I like that! Well worth the money I have seen it for $70.00 by me even if I could get it! I will be getting this again for sure!!
Foraleza blanco is one of the best blancos on the market. This still strength version takes it up another notch. Superb well made blanco.
Great tequila, good price, and quick shipping from Oldtowntequila, what more could you ask for. Thanks again!
