Definite agave, vegetal and pepper spice.

Some cooked Agave coming through. Hints of pepper and some all-spice. Perhaps a touch of citrus and clean minerals as it lingers. Nothing complex as others have said. Won’t keep you guessing. Just a little bite to let you know it’s half and half. For the price excellent value. Can be sipped but don’t let the ambient temperature exceed 25C / 77F or it will be quite fiery.

I’m not entirely a Blanco tequila fan. I do drink them and have them in my collection, but they aren’t my go to. I picked this bottle up because of the process they say it’s prepared as, and I do not regret it. The Agave aroma and flavor is bold but smooth, very earthy and you’ll get citrus tones in the aroma, and finish. It doesn’t bite, and considering for a $30 and under bottle, that says a lot! I couldn’t believe the taste for the price. It’s simple, but that for some reason makes it more notable. I could appreciate this as not a shooter, as I usually do with Blancos, but something to sip on to start a night off of tasting or to lightly finish the evening. It pairs well with lime and salt and could see it mixing well, but would prefer this one neat to appreciate its simple beauty.

I smell lots of agave, pepper, some yeast, and a little alcohol. The taste is overwhelmingly agave and pepper. The finish is warm and peppery. There is not a lot going on with the tequila. Not very complex but very satisfying. A really good tequila.

My go to tequila. Smooth and affordable. Sweet up front and and aftertaste is fresh agave with pepper. Earthy. Love this tequila as a quick grab for sipping OR mixing.

Harsher and more upfront than I like. Interesting earthy flavour after the alcohol dissipates.

This is an excellent tequila, loads of agave and body to it, I realize the intention was to supply bartenders with a premium product for cocktailing but they have wound up with a really great stand alone product.

Almost salinity on the nose... peppery and agave. Light citrus and agave. Fading finish.

Big agave taste. Excellent value. A little strong on the first sip but great on the second.

Subtle sweet nose, light on the tongue, soft agave flavours on the mineral side. A not bad finish, a little fruity on the fade-out. I've come across some alcohol burn if it's not allowed to air out a bit. All in all a decent blanco but lacking in any personality to make it a go-to.

Sweet agave on the nose. A good agave taste with white pepper and hints of limestone/clay. That white pepper lingers a while. I always passed on this due to the low price, but now I wish I tried it sooner. A very clean and refreshing drink.

Bought a pint of this for $8.95. After I got home and tasted it, I felt like I had just stolen from the liquor store. What an amazing, bargain priced, heavyweight tequila! Exploding with cooked agave and goes down smooth enough to be a sipper!

For the price, an excellent Blanco. Superior to many pricier brands. Also a big fan of the sustainability this company insists on, but I digress.

This has to be the BEST priced, 100% agave, NON-DIFFUSER tequila available here in Ontario, Canada. Our options are limited to cheap, diffuser brands like Sauza, Cazadores, El Jimador, et. all.... or $70.00 plus bottles of so-called "premium" tequilas. Olmeca Altos makes a decent sipper, mixes well into cocktails....easy, clean... agave forward... surprising for a $36.00 bottle. A blend of highland and lowland agaves provide a nice balance between sweetness and earthiness. When friends are looking for a good quality, inexpensive tequila to start, or bring to a summer party, this the first one I always recommend. For a seasoned aficionado, this won't likely blow your socks off....but at the price it's easy to keep it on the shelf!

Crisp mineral, herbal, citrus and pineapple nose. Lightly sweet start, with agave and pepper following. Oddly enough, it is priced about the same in Mexico as it is in the US. The Mexican version is 38%, so don’t know if we are comparing apples to apples...

Softer and sweeter than earlier bottles. Smells saccharin sweet with a bit of minerality. Not very complex but well priced. Just too sweet and simple for my palate.

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.
