I am more of a Reposado and up guy but this is very smooth with notes of citrus and vanilla. Worlds above Patrón Silver. Could work in cocktails, on its own, on the rocks, neat, or in shots

Mild Smokeyness, earthy. Probably better used in margaritas.

Don Julio products never disappoint, this blanco tequila is perfect for Palomas and other cocktails not too harsh.

This is a blanco tequila of the highest quality. Exceptionally smooth for a blanco tequila; presence of agave, citrus, black pepper finishes off with vanilla that will leave you wanting more. Great for sipping and exceptional for mixing! My personal favorite tequila for margaritas; does not give you the bite of most blanco tequilas. No sting of alcohol which is always nice.

A nice, clean, approachable blanco for beginners. Want to introduce your friends to tequila? This is not a bad place to start. I would have rated it higher on the Value score, but here in Canada it's $80.00 a bottle.... which I find utterly ridiculous when I have found it routinely in Mexico for around $22.00.... at $22.00 it's AWESOME value... but not at $80.00.... I flat out refuse to buy it here at home.

It's best attribute it's the aroma, really strong agave smell. Taste and finish are from regular to good. The problem is it's price and the strong presence of alcohol in aroma and flavour. I used to have a bottle from the 90s and the taste and aroma were extremely penetrant to agave, it's a shame that bottle is now empty, because actual is just like half as good as original. Thanks to Diageo for increasing the prices for worser products...

To me, a very smooth tequila that I enjoyed straight up on the rocks as well as a great tequila for cocktails. Not too harsh on the palettes with minimum afterburn. Highly recommended for mixing.

$5 / 50mL. Distinctive warm vanilla, sweetness, agave. It doesn't knock your socks off but it's elegant and enjoyable, perhaps excellent.

Butter and an ok amount of cooked agave. Better than expected, but nowhere near as good as Siete Leguas.

Keep in mind this is my first tasting of tequila, Don has good taste and good finish, nothing spectacular. As far as a more common tequila that you order at a restraint, it's great.

Aroma of yeast and agave with a bit of alcohol. The palate has cooked agave, citrus and pepper. A bit doughy maybe? Longer finish with pepper and alcohol, bites. Not as smooth as you would expect for the brand reputation. Overall, not bad but there are better in the price point.

Review #176 - Don Julio Tequila Blanco

Don Julio is just a solid brand and tequila at all levels. It's good for mixing and sipping. It's easy to find and pleasing on many levels.
