I wasn’t a fan of this tequila. I didn’t like the nose, taste, or finish. It wants to be buttery. Agave is there. And. Fennel? Medicinal to me. I don’t like it.

In theory, the attraction here is obvious — partial tahona ground at around $20 a bottle. In practice, though, it just doesn’t deliver. The nose starts promisingly enough, not the brightest agave notes but pleasantly rounded beneath a bit of saline and petrichor. The palate is where it falls apart. It comes off alcoholic hot (curious at just 80 proof), unpleasantly peppery, with an almost sour note and then notable bitterness in the finish. None of these are things I want in blanco tequila. It makes a fine cocktail, though honestly most cheap tequilas do. Disappointed, I must admit, as the bona fides had me excited.

Definite aromas of agave a bit a citrus, and after reading a review I can kind of get the black pepper Flavours a nice clean tasting tequila there a little bit of salinity mixed with some citrus, perhaps lime mixed with the obvious agave Finish is surprisingly smooth for this price point the flavours linger but the alcohol burn disappears quite quickly. Honestly I quite enjoyed sipping this but with the price being $34 CND it would be great for mixing too.

A darn good blanco! Not the best I have ever had.... But nothing at all wrong. Better than Espolon. And at $46 CDN in Alberta.... Who can go wrong???? Nice oily finish. Update - found this for $34.99 in Vancouver (which has much higher taxes than Alberta). An absolute STEAL!!!!! For the money. This CANNOT be beat.

Reminiscent of other tequilas from this NORMA. Its fine if you are looking for a paloma or magarita, but for me, not an “everyday” juice. It would be my “go to” for a mixer, but definitely not a sipper.”

If agave was a flower, the smell of this tequila would be that of a fresh bouquet at a farmers market in spring. It’s got that kind of fresh plant and wet concrete smell, amazing. The flavor is clean with a bit of an underwhelming agave flavor compared to the smell. Which isn’t entirely bad because it makes for a great mixed drink. And at $25 a bottle, you can be sure to impress at any party with plenty of punch!

Aroma good with agave, Pepper and a bit of minerality. Taste is hot and peppery with lots of cooked agave. Finish is short and warm and ok tasting.

The Best Tequilas for Under $30

Why does good tequila have to be so damn expensive? It doesn’t! Even though there are a variety of tequilas at wide-ranging price points, buying a cheap tequila can feel like a risky proposition for many people.
