Aroma of apple cider slight minerality hard to find the agave on the nose, which makes this somewhat complex… different on the palate, cooked agave, black pepper, citrus peel and minerals.

Aroma: this is different. I’m not sure I’m picking up much agave. I get a kind of sour fruit smell, almost like wine. Some citrus- lemon and lime. There’s something in the smell that I’m struggling to get past, like a cheesy funk. Flavor: more sour fruit, like peach that’s not quite ready, a little grapefruit. I pick up just a hint of agave but not much. After the initial pop of fruit it fades to the same flavor I pick up in the aroma. It’s a cheesy, lactic flavor. Finish: gives me a pop of heat and fades pretty quickly. Overall: I like pretty much everything I’ve had from El Tequileño but this ones not for me. I haven’t had many mixtos so it could be that I don’t have a great frame of reference for this product. Gets a bit of a bump because it does mix well.

Cooked agave, more cooked agave on the nose than platino

On the nose, citrus, like fresh squeezed orange juice, and peel. Then cooked agave underneath. Some salinity, and a grassy/earthy note. On the palate, Tangy, and that citrus note is there. The best way I can describe it is orange juice from oranges that weren’t ripe yet. Cooked agave is there, a bit acidic and slightly astringent, almost soapy. It’s okay, I don’t love it. Maybe it needs to rest, it’s surprising coming from the Tequileño family. Definitely toying with the idea that I got a bad bottle.

Probably the best mixto money can buy. Great for cantaritos, charros negros and all sorts of mixed drinks. If forced I could sip it but it’s not really its purpose.

This is probably the best mixto you will find, with 70% blue agave. Balanced, slightly sweet, very smooth. And it’s the only tequila they use for the “La Batanga” at La Capilla in Tequila. Enough said.

Pretty amazing for a mixto, it’s 70% agave and that’s enough to give some depth to the agave that I didn’t expect. Nutty, oily finish that I’m eager to try in a margarita.

Pretty solid for a mixto. Faint cinnamon aroma, sweet finish.

Not bad for a mixto. Some grassy notes along with green agave and some alcohol. Not as enthralled with as some reviewers as there are many many more 100% agave products in the market I would rather drink. Sipping this straight up I was surprised though.

Has a metallic aroma to it. Some agave, and grass. The metallic aroma continues in the flavor with sweetness. Finish is a little sharp and rough. But, it’s not bad for a mixto

Cinnamon and light colored tree fruit. Flavor: caramel, cinnamon and cloves. Nice in the mouth. Blind tasting 4/28/2019. Excellent for a mixto.

I love using this for cocktails. I didn’t mind sipping but obviously the platino is better for sipping. I love that’s is made with Piloncillo syrup and no additives as a mixto tequila.

Definitely a unique Tequila. Enjoyable though it did have a slight medicina nose. Other than that, very good. Earthy, wet wood, with very soft rain water.

Fun to try a mixto that is good. Not a lot of complexity but it’s not bad. You could sip this or put it into a cocktail.

Purchased not knowing what I was getting into. Terrible. Just terrible. Pouring it out.

Tough to rate this. For what it is.... It is great. A mixto. Flavour and aroma decent. Tasty. A bit of cotton candy sweet. Some artifical sweetener after taste. That El Tequileno Red Apple flavour is there (without additives apparently). A great value. Tough to give a mixto an 80 plus rating. Many great things going in. Some not as great. But not at all bad. Have had far worse - more expensive 100% agave blancos.... Give it a try.

It has a characteristic scent like Japanese sake with a strong frequency.

This mixto is not one to avoid. As I was sipping it, I was thinking of how I could use this to make mixed drinks. I was thinking of how this flavor profile could really make some high quality Palomas and tequila sunrises, not that this is an inferior tequila that is only good for mixing. I taste a little orange with the agave, there is an alcohol aroma and taste, but it’s not bad. There is a crisp and fresh essence here that I like. It’s got a thin finish. For the price, who can complain? I think the piloncillo adds something here.

Really good aroma, want to say agave nose, not much oak. Really smooth on the palate a little oak there but not overpowering. Smooth, slightly sweet finish at the very again. Enjoyable

Wanted to try it. Nothing to write home about. I wouldn't pick it for my sipper but I'm sure it would be a great mixer which is it's intended use

Not bad for a mixto but still not my cup of tea. Loads of citrus, some agave, and some kind of funkiness

Cheap? Yep. But there’s quality and history to be found in this agave spirit.
