Tried to like this but it's a no go for me. OK I didn't really try to like it. Medicinal nose and a nasty aftertaste typical of diffuser product.

Hmmmm I dunno where to begin.....I suppose the most important thing is that this doesn’t taste anything like agave.....that’s a pretty big hurdle to overcome. With that behind us this juice isn’t all bad, extremely herbal & minty with a gentle aftertaste. This is waaaaaayyyyyy too expensive!!!

Nose: Floral, some citrus and tutti-frutti. I detect no agave. Flavor: Fake fruit, lacquer and bitter notes. A cloying saccharine taste lingers. Full disclosure: I bought this bottle 4-5 years ago because it was on Oprah’s Best List. Oh my...... The pits!

No thank you. Made with an industrial diffuser. Medicinal, smells like chemicals. Great bottle, but seriously overpriced.

The price is the single biggest factor negatively effecting my score. Loved the tequila, loved the vanilla flavors and floral notes but at $315 it is not as good as other tequilas in that price range

Too much money for the taste, found many blancos with way more subtle tones for a tenth of the price, pure marketing.

Distinct agave aroma with fruit and floral notes. Immediate flavor of mint and anise that evolves to warm, cooked agave. The finish is long and smooth. A nice sipper but at this price point there are many others equal to or better. You can enjoy 5-10 of them for the price of one bottle of Casa Dragones.

The aroma has a strong smell of citrus with hints of agave and mint. The flavor goes along with the aroma and has a strong citrus flavor followed by a minty finish. The finish is nice and smooth. This is an all around good tequila except for one thing... The price tag. It's something I'd be more than happy to drink as a gift but not something I'm going to buy.

Incredibly smooth and complex. Very floral. Could sip this all day with my Khaleesi...

Finally! Casa Dragones by the glass! It's worth the hype; complex, smooth as a baby's butt without compromising the agave flavors and without a syrupy finish that defines most smoother blancos.

It’s not just that this is overpriced. It legitimately doesn’t taste good. I wish it was good because I got it as a gift and now have a whole bottle. It doesn’t smell like tequila. It doesn’t taste like tequila. And as opposed to Clase Azul, it’s really not all that easy to drink. It’s very fruity on the nose. Pineapple and banana and other things that tequila doesn’t smell like. Agave is almost undetectable. And then the whole thing has this harsh, antiseptic quality. Regardless of price, it doesn’t taste good. And add in the price and this is complete insanity.

One of the finest I’ve ever had, period. Simply over-priced.

Well crafted. Doesn’t taste like tequila. But rather a well-crafted liquor. For the price I would expect a bit more.

One of my favorite tequilas. Smooth flavor, elegant, sip it straight, kind of hard to find for the right price. Buy it for a special occasion

Surprisingly my score was 75 although I wanted to give this tequila a high score. Except this beautiful bottle and package I wouldn’t know this tequila was aged. Nose - overtaken by alcohol smell not too pleasant but not as bad as people here wrote. As for taste, if I was rating a blaco this would probably be one of my favorites. Delicate on the tongue smooth with a small burn & very enjoyable after taste. If the price was half I would’ve bought this tequila again but unfortunately I would have a long list of other tequila’s I would recommend. Too bad, i was rooting for Casa Dragones!

Wow! pricey and flavor doesn't match the nose... I get sugary something with no agave or any sign of aging... bland and just awful... sorry, not sorry.

This one was on my list for quite a while, unfortunately I was not too impressed with the caldo once in my copa. Beautiful concept though.

I don’t understand why people like this, especially given the price. The diffuser strips out all of the flavors and leaves a chemical taste. Way better options for a fraction of the cost
