this tequila has an amazing taste that brings me back to my days as a child what we had rooms full of Mexican charro ropes I took a drink. I pause for a minute and try to remember where I knew that flavor from it was from the agave ropes we used

Strong agave taste, velvety and vegetal, with a slight burn at the end

This is an excellent blanco. It’s easy to see why it’s so highly rated. Smooth and easy to drink neat with minimal ethanol on the nose due to strong agave aroma. Somewhat vegetal/ savory rather than sweet but also complex and flavorful. A little pricy for a Blanco but still a very good value for the quality of the product.

Wow! The nose has an incredible agave aroma! Truly superb. Agave blanco classic flavor. Agave forward with pepper and fruit aftertones. A lingering and long finish truly superb. I would recommend this bottle to tequila novices to tequila experts.

Wonderful agave flavor. As others have noted the cork broke very quickly for me too. But I love the flavor of this tequila, it’s my go-to for sipping.

Nice, complex blanco with a spicy, slightly hot, organic finish. I like it, although I’m more of a repo guy really...

Tequilas worth a shot (or sip)

When it comes to tequila, the basic choice is simple: 100% agave, or not 100% agave. Of course, this is like saying that when it comes to music, there’s Mozart or there’s a guy named Steve-O playing the kazoo version of Eine kleine Nachtmusik alone in a b
