Has that burnt tasting finish I really don't like and can't identify.

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.

Full bodied clean aroma. Being an anejo drinker I prefer to use blanco in mixed drinks for flavor- this is my favorite so far. More expensive than some blancos but worth the extra cost if you are going to sit and enjoy it.

One of my favourite blancos. Excellent value. Makes killer margaritas or can be sipped easily. Don Julio just has a fantastic lineup that is hard to beat, especially at the price. Easy recommendation.

This is a very smooth blanco but just a little flat and boring compared to what is out there. Solid stuff but uninspiring for a blanco drinker. Mild and polished to its credit though.

nose is strong on the raw agave and plastic. a little spicy. the plastic gets stronger in the tongue with a decent finish of citrus and pepper.

Quite a bit of yeast on the nose. This is an older mini sample bottle from not too long after Diageo took over distribution of DJ. The yeast continues in the mouth, it is almost like drinking bread and I say this while mostly sober.

The aroma is sharp and harsh with notes of bread/yeast and medicinal alcohol. There is some agave aroma here but it is overwhelmed by the other notes. The flavor opens with a bitter almond taste with a bit of butter and sweetness. Both these flavors remain as a strong, peppery spice follows. The finish is medium length and leaves a bitter aftertaste. 8/6/2015

Tequila was pretty decent. Prominent agave with hints of pepper and citrus. Tequila was smooth, but my personal opinion was that it had a STRONG alcohol finish. I would recommend, but I think there are other blanco's that taste just as good or better for less.

I felt I had to try this because it seems to be one of the mainstream staples. It was very basic with a nice citrus aroma, earthy agave taste and finish, but like the anejo, a dominating alcohol burn. I would order this at a bar that has a limited selection of tequila, but don't plan on restocking this in my collection.
