Review: G4 Blanco 108

Updated: Jan 22



G4 Blanco 108- NOM 1579 - 54%


I'm not starry-eyed when it comes to high proof blancos. With some exceptions (Fuenteseca 2013, Calle 23 Criollo), my palate prefers low distillation proof, 40-percenters over higher proof expressions. I'll take Yeyo and Olive Oil Tesoro over Tapatio 110, Fortaleza 100-B over Still Strength. It's a hit or miss category for me. And while I've enjoyed all the G4 I've tried, I've yet to find an expression that scores up there with my all-time favorites. I feel like the deck is stacked a little against G4 Blanco 108 - especially with it coming in at significantly higher ABV than my favorites in the high proof blanco category.

Nose: Fresh bell and poblano peppers. Honey. Cashews. Faint pollen. This is really nice.

Flavor: Vegetal. Herbal. Touch of sweetness. Baking spice. Citrus and root-y bitterness in the finish.


Structure: Heavy and rolling. Long. Get out of here! Really nice.


Alcohol Integration: Couple drops of water clarify some of the notes on the palate - jalapeño, parsley, black jelly beans, honey. Lengthens the finish and kills the bitterness.


Score: 8 (Stash One) This is an impressive drop. Feel free to add some water. Loves to swim. My favorite G4 to date.

Those fresh vegetal, herbal, and spice notes coupled with the elevated proof would have me suggest a fully ripe mezcal with low smoke influence.
