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.

Aroma a agave crudo (green) En boca dulce y un final fuerte a alcohol. Sobrevalorado, hay mucho mejores blancos Aunque es bastante tomable

Smooth buttery vanilla awesomeness! Tied with Fortaleza Blanco for my favorite tequila blanco! The butter flavor comes across stronger with the Don Julio, and the agave flavor is stronger with the Fortaleza. The flavors are very different, but both are so delicious that I can't call either one better than the other.

it does have an alcohol taste, but the agave comes through the most. being a clear Blanco, moste other tastes are absent. The finish is delayed and comes in rather strong. I recommend small portions taken over a period of time.

Damnit. After a year and a half of trying to get people to try different spirits, I re-try this West Coast-style big dog, and it’s fucking amazing. This voyage of the olfactory opens with soft, sweet enticing notes of agave, which swiftly but coyly submit to a luscious onslaught of peppery and citrusy honey. The finish is nothing less than a synth-pop concerto of marshmallow, agave, orange and vanilla. Jules, you’ve done it again.

Some floral notes on the nose along with agave and pepper. The taste is nice with sweet agave, pepper, and a hint of citrus. The finish is warm with very little alcohol burn. This is a delicious blanco for the price.

Citrus, lemongrass agave on the nose. Clean crisp vegetal, fresh raw agave taste that has a buttery vanilla in the middle, then a green pepper, grapefruit on the finish.

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

I prefer a resposado, but this had a delightfully smooth vanilla finish. It is very soft on the palette. You can not go wrong with any Don Julio juice!

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.
