New Aguila Superior Tahona Blanco,
One of the best Blanco’s I’ve had. Don’t be fooled by other so called high end that are sweetened even though they are 💯 % agave or made with the Diffuser method.
I.E celebrity bottles, Clase Azul, etc, etc,,,,
The excellent Cascahuin Distillery in the town or El Arenal is one of Jalisco's very best. The Rosales family is committed to quality and traditional techniques like few of their competitors. The Aguila Superior brand is made at their excellent facility under the watchful eye of Maestro Tequilero Salvador Rosales using the same time tested techniques that the distillery has since 1904. The agave for the Aguila brand was planted and harvested by the brand themselves insuring the quality of every pina. The average age is approximately 8 years and they are all roasted in the traditional brick ovens over steam. Maceration for this product is completed on the Rosales' tahona and fermentation is done in open ceramic vats with natural non-propegated yeast. Distillation is completely on their two small pot stills and only the the finest heart cut retained to be bottled or aged.

Beautiful purple hue, cedar and spice on the nose, balanced and smooth on the palate. — a month ago
Expressive and powerful nose and palate, some chocolate, a little bit Bordeaux style, tannins have grip and power still for the age, gorgeous. 92-93 — 4 days ago
My first Argentinian Cabernet. I think this is a quite nice wine…good aroma and flavor. Dark plum and currant, tobacco, chocolate, bell pepper, mint, mild jamminess, vanilla and spice. Smooth and the tannins are in control. — 9 days ago
Very nice Ribera del Duero!

A solid version of this new grape type I'm trying. Bought at Total wine and a good weeknight wine that went well with Mac and cheese and roasted chicken. — 17 hours ago
