Awful!

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!

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.

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.

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!!!

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

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.

Had the chance to try this at a cantina I go to. The bartender bought it for a Bay Area couple that comes up. This is the worst tequila I’ve ever had( Jose Cuervo and hornitos excluded). The price point is INSANE you guys realize you’re sipping a 300+$ bottle of diffused crap. I’d much rather sip on 1942 which is far less cheaper than this stuff again.

Good stuff with notes of vanilla, pepper, and agave but not as good as clase Azul, Don Julio 1942, Rey Sol, Avion 44, Herradura Seleccion Suprema, cuervo Reserva de la familia, and gran Patrón Burdeos

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

Sadly, I can't say anything wonderful except I like the bottle. Overpriced and under developed. I taste soap every time I try it, and not in a good Cilantro kind of way.

Watered down, practically flavorless, at this price? If I closed my eyes, I'm not sure that I could even tell I was sipping tequila! I don't get it...

I understand why some people like this tequila, because they are not Tequila drinkers, very weak flavor, floral and fruity notes on the palate with a sutil ending.

Good low land with nut taste. I had the San Miguel Joven. No mention of Blanco so I guess it is the model before the "sipping tequila" naming came out but I'm not sure.

I personally enjoy this at red wine temperature (as opposed to modern room temps). So smooth, refreshing and delightful. It's out of reach for most wallets. Specifically if you want to enjoy in larger quantities or with friends. However, certainly worth a try or 100.
