No thank you. Made with an industrial diffuser. Medicinal, smells like chemicals. Great bottle, but seriously overpriced.

Had the chance to try this at a cantina I go to. The bartender bought it for a Bay Area couple that comes up. This is the worst tequila I’ve ever had( Jose Cuervo and hornitos excluded). The price point is INSANE you guys realize you’re sipping a 300+$ bottle of diffused crap. I’d much rather sip on 1942 which is far less cheaper than this stuff again.

Good stuff with notes of vanilla, pepper, and agave but not as good as clase Azul, Don Julio 1942, Rey Sol, Avion 44, Herradura Seleccion Suprema, cuervo Reserva de la familia, and gran Patrón Burdeos

The price is the single biggest factor negatively effecting my score. Loved the tequila, loved the vanilla flavors and floral notes but at $315 it is not as good as other tequilas in that price range

Sadly, I can't say anything wonderful except I like the bottle. Overpriced and under developed. I taste soap every time I try it, and not in a good Cilantro kind of way.

Watered down, practically flavorless, at this price? If I closed my eyes, I'm not sure that I could even tell I was sipping tequila! I don't get it...

I understand why some people like this tequila, because they are not Tequila drinkers, very weak flavor, floral and fruity notes on the palate with a sutil ending.

Good low land with nut taste. I had the San Miguel Joven. No mention of Blanco so I guess it is the model before the "sipping tequila" naming came out but I'm not sure.

I personally enjoy this at red wine temperature (as opposed to modern room temps). So smooth, refreshing and delightful. It's out of reach for most wallets. Specifically if you want to enjoy in larger quantities or with friends. However, certainly worth a try or 100.

cool box and bottle. Hardly a tequila taste at all. Way over priced and not as smooth as expected. Vodka lovers might enjoy.

Too much money for the taste, found many blancos with way more subtle tones for a tenth of the price, pure marketing.

- nose is very floral with a sweet young agave aroma - the floral and sweetness of the nose translates to the pallet with hints of mint and cinnamon - very nice velvety mouthfeel that lingers but clean finish

Distinct agave aroma with fruit and floral notes. Immediate flavor of mint and anise that evolves to warm, cooked agave. The finish is long and smooth. A nice sipper but at this price point there are many others equal to or better. You can enjoy 5-10 of them for the price of one bottle of Casa Dragones.

The aroma has a strong smell of citrus with hints of agave and mint. The flavor goes along with the aroma and has a strong citrus flavor followed by a minty finish. The finish is nice and smooth. This is an all around good tequila except for one thing... The price tag. It's something I'd be more than happy to drink as a gift but not something I'm going to buy.

Finally! Casa Dragones by the glass! It's worth the hype; complex, smooth as a baby's butt without compromising the agave flavors and without a syrupy finish that defines most smoother blancos.
