Light floral. Lightflavor. Smooth. Little harsh after. Vanilla

Still the best Cristalino I’ve run across, I like that it still maintains some of the agave profile in the nose. Scary smooth, this is the kind of bottle that gets drained without even noticing. Really sweet milk chocolate ending.

Oak with a hint of vanilla in scent. Heavy oak taste with hint of vanilla. Dry finish

Soft vanilla smell, very nice. Smooth and silky, absolutely no burn at all. Light and sweet taste as well. I’ll buy again for sure. Top 10 for me. I like them sweet.

Se nota que esta bastante abocado con caramelo y detecto sabor a piña y coco muy característico de los Cristalinos. Sin duda fue un hit para la industria e introducir a los clientes que les agradan los tequilas suaves y dulces. Con el tiempo y el probar de muchos tequilas, vas distinguiendo muchos aromas y sabores que van definiendo tus gustos. Salud!

Very citrusy aroma, lemon cheesecake with a hint of chocolate. Aroma directly translates into palate and has a typical crystallino finish - soft and short.

On the nose, only vanilla and baked agave is prominent, there is a hint of citrus on the backdrop. Upon entry there is a slight oak and agave and transitions to caramel with a quick hint of banana and finishes with the same caramel and slight pepper. Overall nice and smooth tequila with some unique traits.

To me this is the ideal blanco. Exactly what I would expect for a tequila in the $50-$85 range

This was my first clear Añejo, and I think it did a great introduction. You’ll get a beautiful Agave nose, hints of grassy and earthy goodness, with subtle citrus sitting in the back. It’s flavor packs a punch! Not a bite, but how the flavors touch the palate is not what you’d expect if you’re new to a clear Añejo. Very smooth Agave, beautiful oak body, and the citrus you pick up in the aroma comes in the finish very subtle as well. You have to enjoy this neat, to respect its full flavor and beautiful taste. It’s Don Julio! You have to have this in the collection and have to savor the bottle. A fairly priced piece of work that will make any celebration memorable!

Smooth or “smoof” as my friend says.

Most purists don’t like cristalinos and while I do prefer a more traditional tequila, I’ve got a soft spot for cristalinos. This one is the best I’ve had, it’s got good flavor, you get vanilla and a bit of subtle sweetness. Unfortunately, most of the agave flavor has been filtered out of this one. Is it still tasty? Yes, very much so. Just some of the flavors I enjoy are gone with this one(and most cristalinos).

Little too sweet for me but good finish!! Probably the best of the cristalinos I’ve tasted so far.

My first experience with Añejo clara. Aroma ok. Taste is good with some pepper. Smooth finish.

This was my first claro/cristalino and while I felt like this was a very strange pour I quite enjoyed it. There was just enough oakiness and baking spice to remind you that this was an añejo but the agave shined through like a blanco. The only thing wrong with it in my opinion was that neither was quite as prominent as I'd prefer so while it was a smooth, drinkable pour, it was a little weak overall. That said I would definitely drink it again and will be adding it to my rotation.

Very ice sipping tequila with a mellow and sweet flavor up front. This anejo has a wonderful and subtle complex yet mellow flavor. A bit pricey..

Nose: Citrus, pineapple and agave. Some cinnamon and licorice. Flavors: Vanilla, toasted hazelnuts, leather notes followed up with mellow black pepper. Borderline too sweet for me. I’m not generally a fan of cristalinos, but this might be the best of the genre.

when I first started to drink tequila a couple of years ago this was a favorite. after trying many more my palate has changed. not sure why they distil everything that is tequila out. no agave. no oak.

This confuses me as a tequila connoisseur. It doesn’t taste aged and I can’t taste much agave. ????

I feel like cristalinos strip so much flavor from their tequila. And by doing so strip the aroma even more. It makes it hard to recommend when you can enjoy a silver or a true anejo for the same price and tons more flavor. Just not worth the value. This particular cristalino is so base in flavor that it is great for the inexperienced tequila enthusiast.
