A decent silver for the price. It's one of the cheapest 100% agave silvers I have seen. It's actually smoother than I expected and is quite good in margaritas. I'm not sure I would buy this again unless it was one sale, but only because I would rather get the Calende anejo (Non 100% agave version costs the same but tastes better.) For a few dollars more there are other 100% agave options that are better. The nose isn't my favourite either, which is a bit tragic for a blanco to fail in this area. Despite my issues with this blanco, I still think it is a pretty good deal and I wouldn't hesitate to drink this in a margarita.

Best non-100% agave tequila I have ever had. It is drinkable straight; but I personally wouldn't. My suggestion is make margaritas with it for its bold taste. It costs less than Cuervo where I live and only $2 more than Sauza. It's a no-brainer to use this instead and impress guests with bold flavour margaritas. Had many comments on this and the 100% agave version in margaritas from guests who were wowed. For the price and non-100% agave category I highly recommend it over Sauza/Cuervo.

At the price it's a great tequila. Very bold flavour and makes killer margaritas. Too much burn to drink straight all the time. But fantastic as a mixer. And if I'm in the mood for some burn i would drink straight as well. Well worth trying mixed. Had many people blown away by the margaritas I've made with this tequila. Know what you are using the tequila for and it might fulfill that role perfectly.

strong smokiness but way too much alcohol burn.
