Aroma : Agave, alcohol, vanilla, cinnamon and oak . Nothing too complex here. Taste : Alcohol and agave with a fair amount of vanilla and oak. Again nothing too complex here. To me it seemed like the notes got "mixed" together or something of the like. It might have something to do with the oddly sweet nature of the vanilla notes. Finish : Finish is somewhat short with a bit of spice and alcohol, with some vanilla notes here as well. This is a pretty basic tequila. Not bad, but it's not something I would drink straight again. I'm sure it would go well in a margarita though.

This is a shot tequila for fun parties at a decent price, but falls short of a sipping tequila under my ratings

Nose: Had a sweetness of honeysuckle, caramel, wood, citrus and berries. Muted agave. Tongue: A little hot. Agave was not the star of the show. Butterscotch, oak, light vanilla, sweetener, pressure-cooked agave. Long, but somewhat artificial finish. With that said, it wasn’t offensive. The price point is fantastic, just not an all-night sipper, for me.

Still quite a bit of bitterness off the hop but the oak treatment seems to have weeded out the sweet agave I love so much! Warm butterscotch finish is nice but I’ll stick with the Blanco.

Nose: Bright agave, fruit and floral notes. Palate: Initially, semi viscous, pepper and sweet agave. Secondary spices, mint and trace almond emerge. Mexican 38%.

Sweet aroma, there is a slight burn on the finish. Definitely a good value tequila that can stand on its own.

Citrus, wood, grass and spices. A really well balanced tequilla for the price. Would recommend, a real hidden gem for people who might be cynical dabbling in cheaper tequilla.

There is a bitter tannin flavor midpallet which ruins the experience for me. Otherwise it’s a tasty budget tequila.

Not much aroma at all. Flavor is average. I got this on sale for $18 so I thought I would try it. I'll use it for mixing only. Won't buy again.

I was overwhelmed by a strong "chemical smell" I bought this a a sipping tequila, when I was unable to drink it straight, I tried making a cocktail with it but couldn't drink that either. I don't know if I got a bad bottle but this was undrinkable, the only other time I have smell this horrible smell it was from bottle of Captain Morgan white rum. I don't like wasting food or drink, but I had to flush this one down the drain.

Not much to say it's sippable, moderate complexity. Considering the price it's good enough.
