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.

    this is by far my favorite tequila and I have tasted a lot of tequilas. Very floral and so full of flavor.

    Excellent Tequila but I prefer the blanco as I find the blanco smoother

    This is the best Teqilla in this price range. I have seen this blanco rated at the top of rating sites so gave it a try. Glad I did and this site did wonderful packagIng and quick shipping. Will buy more, this is a high quality online teqilla ste.

    Dangerously good

    Blanca's are not my go to style, but this Still Strength delivers depth and flavor that far and away makes up for the lack of barrel character. The purity of the agave flavor, spice, jalapeno, carries and it is very smooth. Makes a great margarita too of course.

    A really smooth still strength tequila. Slightly rougher than the normal Blanco by Fortaleza, but not bad. Very drinkable .
