Fortaleza Blanco Still Strength Tequila

(7 reviews) Write a Review



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.

    Fortaleza Blanco Still Strength

    Posted by Mark Mooney on Jul 24th 2019

    This is the real deal. Still strength, 92 proof, but you wouldn't know it. I like it with one or two ice cubes to just round off. This is full flavored like how tequila is meant to taste. No additives. For aficionados who really like tequila.

    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.

    Fortaleza Still Strength Tequila

    Posted by Benjamin Soto on Oct 19th 2018

    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.

    Tequila Fortaleza

    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.
