march 9, 2023 i decided to rate a clase azul product for my 200th review because clase azul was my gateway tequila back in 2006... Clase azul gold we've had this in our bar for several yrs. just now rating. Nose a lot of alcohol coffee a little oak some caramel Palate vanilla pepper agave tiny bit of heat but not much of a finish Overall, not as horrible as I expected but also not great. Rating would be low 70s but points off for cost/low value

Very sweet but not vanilla forward, more like straight up white sugar. Some tequila is in the background so it’s not as offensive. Massively overpriced even when considering the bottle cost. Did not rate the other NOMs but very similar.

Very sweet notes and barely any complexity. No harshness and minimal alcohol. Product to initiate someone into sweet profiles

clase azul reposado the one I'm rating is from NOM 1595. tho it was made at a differemt distillery when i first tried it. this was my gateway tequila back in 2006 but I never reviewed it so i thought it appropriate to have this be my 100th review my palate has evolved since I started drinking this in 2006. I used to like sweet tequila. but I can no longer drink it. nose: isnt too bad - caramel vanilla cinnamon and fruit. palate: not great - oak sweet and bitter finish: short with a little heat i am not a fan of tequilas with additives so i can't recommend this, even though it was the tequila that got me into sippin. there are other additive-free tequilas on the sweet side
