I typically like still strength / high ABV Blancos. when done right you get a mouthful of agave and complex flavors that are sometimes hidden in 80 proof varieties. that said, this is a high ABV gone bad IMO. At 55% / 110 proof it drinks more like a moonshine than a fine tequila. it may be the high alcohol or it could be simply the tequila lacks complex flavors to carry the higher ABV. I let it air out a bit to be sure I gave this one a fair shake. i get little agave and high sweetness combined with over powering alcohol. the aroma doesn't have much to out and the finish is weak. luckily i picked it up in MX for 36 USD vs 84 in the states. leaving this one behind
