This a very standard, run of the mill blanco. The flavor profile is basic and inoffensive, with some sweet cooked agave, spicy white pepper, alongside some earth and vegetal notes. From a budget standpoint this tequila is a very strong contender. I got this 1 L bottle for $23 (an equivalent $17.25 for 750 mL), which is less expensive than other budget brands I typically see like Olmeca Altos or Tres Agaves. Not to mention Cimarron seems to have a richer, more traditional flavor. This can easily compete with bottles you might see in the 40 dollar range.

Nose: Fresh Agave, lemon grass, minerals Taste: Agave, Pepper, Vegetal, Spice, Mint, slight alcohol and an agave sweetness on the tail end. Finish: Its a mouthfull of flavors with a nice long peppery finish. It drinks like a higher proof for a 40 abv tequila. It's an agave forward earthy spicy tequila. I dig it! This flavor profile is perfect for me and that’s why it earned high marks. It’s $22 a liter so that also helped. ¡Salud!

Slight citrus, grassy in the nose. Some white pepper, clean burn on the mouth. Lingering finish. A solid and well made blanco, and from a value perspective - very impressive.

This juice is a surprise! A clean nice nose of cooked agave, on the palate balanced enough to be sipped, let alone mixed. It also has nice viscous mouthfeel. At this price I could never imagine you could find these characteristics. Amazing! This should be the tequila that any bar has on their well!

Nose- Agave, clay, citrus, faint alcohol Taste- Sweet cooked agave, butter, cinnamon, brine, and some earthy and vegetal notes Mouth feel- medium bodied and perfectly oily Finish- the sweet flavors drop off almost immediately. Some peppery alcohol heat lingers but not long enough. Value- I know my review reads like I didn't like it but I absolutely did. This Blanco was strange and wonderful but it fell just short of epic. That being said it's only $25 for a liter in Michigan making this one of the all time great values in agave. It just dethroned Azteca Azul as my go-to budget brand.

Lots of sharp vegetal, pepper, and some gasoline notes on the nose. The mouthfeel is viscous. Taste is sweeter than expected. Lots of agave and pepper. For $19 this is the best value tequila, IMHO, on the market! I’m going to buy it by the case for margaritas.

Rather harsh, white, not too smooth, interesting.

There’s a very acidic, cheesy, lactic funk on the nose. Vegetal notes on the palate followed by alcohol, cooked agave, and black pepper. Spicy finish, but not overwhelming. The aroma is easily my least favorite part of this tequila, and the taste is strange compared to other budget blancos I’ve tried. Something about this is just “off” to me. It might be the column still’s fault, but I find it too hot and unbalanced to sip and it makes my mixed drinks smell terrible (think hints of sour milk/blue cheese cutting through instead of cooked agave/pepper). I won’t be buying it again, but I recommend trying it at least once as it’s clear others appreciate it.

This is a well rounded blanco. Nice cooked agave aroma with some pepper and earthy notes. What makes Cimarron one of my favs is it's price point I can find it in 1L for low $20's. The same with the repo. most $30 bottles aren't this good.

Lots of great agave on the front with a smooth (but not long finish)

Bartender recommended in Ventura. Good choice. Good consistency through aroma, taste and finish. I will look locally to purchase.

No complexity. No depth. Column still one note. Not a note I appreciate. Told it “used to be better”. Way, way overrated if you ask me.

Another solid product from NOM 1146. Great budget mixer that is hard to beat for $16. Not my first choice to sip but wouldn't turn it down either.

I’m not a column still tequila guy, but with no additives, low pressure auto clave and the price can’t be beat. Great flavor profile and it’s NOM 1146. For the win

Smells and tastes of over-ripe fruit. Not my cup of tea. Decent finish.

Aroma is probably the worst aspect of this... a bit like medicinal alcohol, not a lot that hints to a good tequila. The taste is much better... nice agave, pepper, citrus and I get some cinnamon baked cookies at the end. Slight burn on the finish. This and Olmeca Altos are my favorite mixers, but it’s good enough to sip. 10/10 on value.

This is an old reliable type of tequila. Kinda like the headlock... you can do flips and clotheslines all night, but when you need to get control of the match... there nothing like a good headlock to wrench on somebody and let them know how this match is gonna go.

Aroma of agave, olive and lactic—almost blue cheesy. Taste is best part full of ripe agave. Finish is ok. Super great value for 1 liter $22. Bought so I can infuse jalapeños with tequila.

5 Essential Tequilas for a Well-Stocked Bar

Some people, when talking about essential bottles for a well-stocked bar, leave out tequila (unlike, say, bourbon or scotch). Some people think that the only thing tequila is good for is making margaritas. Some people are wrong.

The Best Tequilas for Under $30

Why does good tequila have to be so damn expensive? It doesn’t! Even though there are a variety of tequilas at wide-ranging price points, buying a cheap tequila can feel like a risky proposition for many people.
