Bought to try and use in barrel aging project. Paid USD27.99 in January 2021. Aroma is somewhat herbal, which is nice, but also has some alcohol, which is not so nice. It reminds me a bit of 1800 from a long time ago. The nose has some nice things going on, but also some undesirable characteristics. First impression is that this is a decent reposado, in that the agave is more present than oak, probably due to use of large casks and/or short aging period. Flavor is inoffensive and subtle, nothing wowing though. This could be sipped, as a result. Oak characteristics are minimal, but round out the harshness (not much) of the blanco. The price is right, but you also get what you pay for.

Was unfortunately very let down by this one. Love the blanco, like the repo. This just tasted muted from start to finish. Unpleasant amount of alcohol on the nose, tasted burnt all through the flavor. Would not buy this again.

A very solid tequila especially as a mixer. Notes of citrus, pepper, sweet agave, fruit, herbal and earthy, with some light floral. For the price and the production methods utilized.... this is the best mixer you can buy.
