This is the worst thing you can buy.. I’m sorry but it is. I bought it for The Rolling Stones nostalgia but it taste like pure piss. I even did a blind taste test for fun with my wife with 4 other entry level Blanco’s and it was so easy to pick this out as the inferior tequila. At $16 it still wasn’t worth it.. Unbelievably harsh with zero cooked agave taste..honestly wouldn’t even make a margarita with this.. maybe for a sweet smelling lighter fluid, I dunno

Not sure what I was expecting, but yowza. Nose is gorgeous, very forward with agave notes that get tempered by sweet vanilla. Nice black pepper notes and a mystery floral note I have trouble placing. Entry is, again for what it is, quite impressive. Beautifully thick mouthfeel, more pepper and agave all take their turns dancing about. The barrel takes a bit of a back seat on the palate with tiny hints of vanilla/ caramel. It does go down a little hot, which may hurt the ratings for others but I like it. Just bitey enough to remind you it’s tequila. There is a bitter note that starts to creep in the longer it’s held in the mouth, but I think it’s from the barrel and not the juice itself. Finish is fleeting, with plenty of nice bite and an appreciable warmth. Very buttery, almost like an oaky Chardonnay with some agave and black pepper that have managed to be present the whole time. Not the most complex by any means, but what it does, it does very well
