Nose of citrus, berries and spices. Floral. Cinnamon, licorice, fruit and some heat at the back of throat. I can hear the groans... But not that bad. I liked it better than the Joven. A little cloying sweetness on the finish.

Very surprised ! I have had the sipping tequila and this one at a much lower price point (still little overpriced) and I expected this to be not great! At 1/4 th the price of the sipping tequila this is great. Little expensive but very enjoyable Blanco

Weird smell. I'm not a fan. Tequila newbies will think this is "smooth", so they'll say it's good. Everyone has different tastes, but you couldn't pay me to drink this again.

Different in many ways but good to sip. Overpriced maybe because of nice packaging and marketing expenses.

Way over priced and as far as flavor, well you shouldn't have to tolerate your tequila! Doesn't even mix well.

Pretty neutral aroma but very smooth on the tongue and finish. A nice slipping blanco.

(Rated blind) Varnish aroma and flavor. Chemicals. Not pleasant at all. (This is what you should expect from a diffuser-made product. Made on the cheap, then sold as if it wasn't. Downright offensive.)

Tried in a Neat glass up. Aroma is sweet floral with almost no alcohol in the nose. Taste is more of the same floral with some banana flavor and a slight pepper finish. Very easy drinking blanco and would be good for first time or occasional tequila drinker.

Casa Dragones leaves me wanting more. Very light on the nose with almost no agave. Light green vegetal flavor with no burn but a numbness on the back of the throat. I only paid $49 for my bottle so this improved my rating. I think they wanted $89 for it.

Blind rated. On the nose this one is very citrusy and aromatic. Agave is barely perceivable if ever. Strong note of mint and anise dominate the aroma. In the palate it's very smooth, almost no burn. Here again strong notes of mint and anise, slight pepper and no agave. Only in the long finish finally cooked agave makes its appearance. Finish is in fact my favorite part on this one. No doubts this is a worthy juice, simply not enough agave presence overall for my taste.

Aroma: lacquer with cherry. Flavor: some cherry comes through but over powered by chemical flavor, would not know this was a tequila. Finish: short and sour.

From a blind tasting. Some citrus on the nose. Some alcohol initially in the mouth with a mineral, agave, citrus taste that comes out in waves while held in the mouth. Price bias? Amended to add: No, taste bias, as this is made with a diffuser and has additives to restore the "agave" that is processed out. The hints of fake sweetness in the finish is the give away for me these days as that seems to be a common element with the diffused blancos. Aging, sadly would cover that element to all but the most discerning palate.

Very strong agave notes and also slightly medicinal and citric. Initially, I got a strange note (I think peanuts) that mellowed as it sat. The flavor is much more balanced. I get some agave as well as some pepper. It's an interesting tequila. The aroma wasn't my favorite and it's definitely overpriced but the flavor is decent (not great but not terrible). There are just so many tequilas at half the price that I would much prefer to this.

Strong floral aroma with undertones of agave and a hint of black pepper. Slightly syrupy texture with spicy flavor and a hint of vanilla. Quite a bit going on here. So far from a classic blanco that it makes you wonder what exactly is going on. Finish is short to medium and leaves you wondering...

Rated blind. Nose was a little chemically harsh on the initial pour, but softened into agave notes after opening up, some nice fresh green herbal/vegetal notes though as well. Nice legs in the glass. Has a quick hint of sweetness upon entry and becomes agave-forward without overwhelming the palate. Launches into a great pepper finish with citrus accents. Very nice. Not overwhelming. Pretty pricey though, probably not worth it. I would drink this again if someone else poured it for me, but at this price I would certainly be looking to other options. This gets hit hard on value, which also impacts buy/recommend scores. This is a 3x distilled, highly filtered tequila. I also think a diffuser may be used in extracting lower-quality agave starches for fermentation.

Putting Diffuser-made Tequilas to the Blind Taste Test

Tequila has changed a lot since the early days. Most producers have switched from time consuming, old-school methods to high-efficiency production. But has this trend helped or harmed the overall quality of tequila?
