Aroma: Grassy agave, ethanol. Citrus, lime specifically and clearly. Tiniest bit of vanilla. Palate: Agave and ethanol, definitely a little hot. A peculiar bitter herb note, and white pepper. I use a lot of it in my cooking and recognize that flavor. A little vanilla bean, very curious. Verdict: Wonderful budget mixer. I think this is definitely mixer but it’s very tasty, just a bit harsh and hot for sipping. I think a little sugar and lime would take the edges off and give you a nice margarita with a good, juicy agave bite. I routinely see this on sale for $17-22 for a bottle, and that’s hard to beat. As it’s opening up, it’s actually developing into a nice tequila, I could see this being a passable sipper with a little time opened up and/or a little bit of ice. Overall, I recommend. Will definitely keep this in the “well” rotation.

Agave on the nose, but the smell is a bit off putting. Taste is definitely better that the aroma. Some sweetness, citrus notes not a go to for sipping but good for mixing

A very solid tequila especially as a mixer. Notes of citrus, pepper, sweet agave, fruit, herbal and earthy, with some light floral. For the price and the production methods utilized.... this is the best mixer you can buy.

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.”

Aroma : Cooked agave, citrus, pepper and salinity. A small amount of alcohol. Taste : Medium bodied and oily with agave, lots of citrus, and a distinctive "green" taste, but not like Casa Noble. Some fruity notes, lime and a bit of black pepper. Some alcohol on the palette as well. Finish : Medium length finish with more grassy notes and cooked agave. Small amount of alcohol here as well. This isn't exactly a "smooth" tequila but for the price there are some really good flavors here.

One neat and then one chill. NOM 1111. Screw cap bottle. Aroma: agave, citrus, mint, lemon, pepper. Flavor: agave, alcohol, pepper, lemon, citrus, mint and grass. Finish is short with a very little heat. Long legs on glass with silky appearance. There is some sweetness but can’t say for sure it is vanilla. Oily in the mouth. Found a 750ml bottle for $20

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.

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.

It's a rather friendly tequila. Best for people who are new to the scene. Price is the biggest attraction for a blend of tahona and shredder mill tequila. Aromas are a bit muted and flavor is unassuming, but with decent agave presence. It's winner in my book. Probably best for mixed drinks.

Great bargain even for tax crazy WA. Citrus, agave, mouthfeel, finish, nose, this bargain tahona crushed blanco is better than more than a few costing quite a bit more.

This is incredible for $20! Found it at my local Albertsons! Old Town also has it for $20 online. Tahona crushed, too! Opens up wonderfully! (0.29) Rated blind after aeration. I get what Chris is saying on the nose—I'm getting big agave and maybe just a hint of yeast. Great oily mouthfeel. Nice agave and citrus flavor with maybe a faint chemical undertone. Big pepper on both the front and back ends. Maybe just the slightest burn going down, not sure, more testing needed! Pleasant, lasting peppery finish. (The repo wasn't as impressive.)

Faint aroma of tobacco and slight musty leaves, with a very delicious sweet finish. For the price, you can't beat this blanco. Feels fantastic in the mouth, oily and substantial. How the hell did they make such a good tequila at this low price?

Aroma of agave with a slight hint of yeast. Full, round flavor of the agave. Long, hot finish. Good flavor for a $20 tequila.

With notes of brown sugar and cooked agave on the nose, Olmeca Altos plata is a tasty tequila with a nice, long, and complex finish that I really dig. At the price point of $20, this can be a great budget sipper and make some good cocktails.
