Aroma : Alcohol, agave, earth, and some medical aromas predominate. Taste : Cooked agave and alcohol are the top 2 flavors, but there is also some degree of citrus, vegetal, and earth. A little more one dimensional than I would like. Finish : Very light with some citrus and alcohol. I can find this for around $45 a bottle, and while this certainly a good tequila, it's a tad overpriced for what you get, and there are far better tequilas to be had at this price.

It’s a lot sweeter than I remember, the aftertaste is a little hollow but entirely drinkable.

This used to be like comfort food when I really didn’t want to think too much about what I was drinking. But in recent years, this blanco has taken on some suspect aromas and flavors: cotton candy and a bitter finish.

nose is strong on the raw agave and plastic. a little spicy. the plastic gets stronger in the tongue with a decent finish of citrus and pepper.

Quite a bit of yeast on the nose. This is an older mini sample bottle from not too long after Diageo took over distribution of DJ. The yeast continues in the mouth, it is almost like drinking bread and I say this while mostly sober.

The aroma is sharp and harsh with notes of bread/yeast and medicinal alcohol. There is some agave aroma here but it is overwhelmed by the other notes. The flavor opens with a bitter almond taste with a bit of butter and sweetness. Both these flavors remain as a strong, peppery spice follows. The finish is medium length and leaves a bitter aftertaste. 8/6/2015

An earthy aroma of agave and citrus. Mild sweet agave flavor with black pepper and citrus. The finish is short with a crisp bite.

Green agave aroma very present, not much to my liking. There's a sweetness to it as well, which is also present when tasted. The flavor is quite flat and simple. The finish is quite rough.

Light nose. Slightly oily. Clean and smooth with some pepper. Not too complex. No big agave. Easy lingering finish. Better than Patrón. Still prefer smaller-market tequilas, but decent sipping if you're stuck at Chili's.

Soft and slightly complex, but not overbearing with lots of sweet, floral and citrus tones. This was for the Mexican market so it was 38% (rather than 40%), and I believe it was one of the last batches to get out before they changed the fermentation process as I find a lot more yeasty notes in the newer DJ blancos while there was only a touch of this on the nose.

Aroma - citrus, orange, yeast, not much of anything Flavor - agave, alcohol, pepper, something seems a little off Finish - bitter, dry, ehh Overall, I think it is a good mixer but leaves a lot to be desired as a sipper. For the price, you can find better. It’s not terrible by any means though.

Second tequila to rate so not many Blancos to compare to other than ones I used for shots (patron and 1800) when I didn’t care to understand tequila. The initial inhale has a pleasant lite citrus scent. I saw that pepper was an identifier and that has to explain the heat for the aroma present in this drink and is definitely noted on the the exhale Smooth after it’s gone down.. Much talk about the Don especially living in south Texas with the population 99%, however this blanco for what it’s worth is not as impressive as I was lead to believe.. killer for the margaritas.. I can’t wait to try the rest of what the Don has to offer. Again my first balance to review take it with a gain of salt from a newbie

a bit medicine-like at first whiff. Very agave forward, which I like. At first taste I thought it tasted a bit medicine-like but changed to more of a vegetal citrus flavor. I have grown to really like it. I'm receiving the repo tomorrow so I'm anxious to try the whole line. very easy to drink, I do enjoy DJ.

did not live up to the hype that I heard about for years. taste like a rough vodka. the alcohol fumes were to strong for me and a nasty vodka aftertaste.

Nothing special, taste is a little dull due to a slight noticeable metalic taste, if there is nothing else i would still drink it.

The smell and the flavor is like ordinario, very bad! It looks like a bad distillation process, before it was one of the best blancos but actually I think that is the baddest.

Don Julio blanco made me realize there are good tequilas, during a wonderful weekend in Vegas. 8 years later DJ nailed it again being the best tequila available at an all-inclusive resort in Cancun. Always a good choice.

well it wasn't expensive but I threw it out it just had a terrible taste. I've been drinking the 1940 and there just is no comparison. I was hoping to find something decent and more affordable but I really dislike this tequila

Review #176 - Don Julio Tequila Blanco

Don Julio is just a solid brand and tequila at all levels. It's good for mixing and sipping. It's easy to find and pleasing on many levels.
