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!

Agave and alcohol aromas. The alcohol comes through in the flavor and overpowers. Finish doesn't linger very long. Average price for a shot in restaurant.

I am more of a Reposado and up guy but this is very smooth with notes of citrus and vanilla. Worlds above Patrón Silver. Could work in cocktails, on its own, on the rocks, neat, or in shots

Don Julio products never disappoint, this blanco tequila is perfect for Palomas and other cocktails not too harsh.

A nice, clean, approachable blanco for beginners. Want to introduce your friends to tequila? This is not a bad place to start. I would have rated it higher on the Value score, but here in Canada it's $80.00 a bottle.... which I find utterly ridiculous when I have found it routinely in Mexico for around $22.00.... at $22.00 it's AWESOME value... but not at $80.00.... I flat out refuse to buy it here at home.

It's best attribute it's the aroma, really strong agave smell. Taste and finish are from regular to good. The problem is it's price and the strong presence of alcohol in aroma and flavour. I used to have a bottle from the 90s and the taste and aroma were extremely penetrant to agave, it's a shame that bottle is now empty, because actual is just like half as good as original. Thanks to Diageo for increasing the prices for worser products...

To me, a very smooth tequila that I enjoyed straight up on the rocks as well as a great tequila for cocktails. Not too harsh on the palettes with minimum afterburn. Highly recommended for mixing.

$5 / 50mL. Distinctive warm vanilla, sweetness, agave. It doesn't knock your socks off but it's elegant and enjoyable, perhaps excellent.

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.
