Good lowland tequila. Quite dry, mineral, and vegetal. Pretty hot at 92 proof. Better for Tommy's than sipping or shooting.

Very alcoholic, slightly musty cooked agave aroma. Bold sour-citrus-cinnamon flavour, a bit crude. Long finish. Unusual but not all that interesting a sipper. I bet it would make great cocktails.

Hit with strong alcohol on the immediate nosing. Overwhelming at first since I didn’t know it was 46% but quickly realized it. Citrus, white pepper some spice comes through on the nose after acclimating. Medium body, with citrus,, cinnamon, pepper. I get the same chemical/diffuser aftertaste on this that I get from Herradura 2002 blanco round bottles. Not a favorite for high octane juice. If I’m going 45% plus I want Lots of flavor coming through to make the heat worthwhile— I’m not getting here. eh.

It’s a bit hot on the finish, but it’s also high octane tequila. I like it!

Pleasantly surprised for 46% ABV. VERY vegetal. Lots of raw agave, white pepper, spice. At $56 not bad value for Ontario...

Aromas of cinnamon, pepper, and spice, with minerals, and a musty aroma, with citrus, vegetal, floral and some anise (licorice) notes. It has a potent taste with a hot cinnamon presence and a musty, sharp, mild fruit, citrus and spice presence, along with some sweet agave notes. It is pleasant enough to sip, but in a hi-proof cocktail, this agave sweetness and alcohol punch, would cut through the mixed flavors and add a tasty zest. Decent price for an over proof blanco.

We love the most interesting man in the world. We find it interesting that he is representing such bad tasting Tequila. Very disappointing. :-(

Very CLEAN tasting spirit! Priced at $37, it's expensive, but I think they could charge more than they do for a tequila like this!

Nice sweet agave nose. Smooth for 92 proof no burn at all. The finish is long and a little peppery. This might be the best tequila I have ever had at 32 dollars. cheers!

Sharp aroma with agave and noticeable alcohol sting. Also, a bit of an unpleasant rubber-like note. Flavor is rich and full with cinnamon, black pepper and a hint of fruit sweetness. The finish is short. 6/29/2017

Shiny and thick in the glass, more years than legs. Deff alcohol on the nose as it's 46% but then the citrus and cooked agave burst thru. Citrus blast on the tongue giving way to cooked agave and black pepper. The high proof warms going down and agave stays on the tongue, long finish and a smile on my face.

Flavor and smooth. I like this one from start to finish and I like the price point.

This tequila needs time to open up like many other Blanco's I have found. I believe the sharpness will go away and the agave will come forward.

Astral Tequila - It's 'Interesting'

For the money, Astral Tequila is a good high proof, clean blanco. As a sipper it could be a little rough around the edges, but perfect for a high quality mixed cocktail. So keep drinking tequila, and as Jonathan would say.... Stay thirsty my friends.

Blanco Tequila: The Great Divide

While the panel’s favorites were complex, elemental and intriguing, we were troubled by a lack of intensity in many of the bottles as well as by a sense of artificiality in some. As Florence put it, we found a great divide between those tequilas we liked

Tequilas worth a shot (or sip)

When it comes to tequila, the basic choice is simple: 100% agave, or not 100% agave. Of course, this is like saying that when it comes to music, there’s Mozart or there’s a guy named Steve-O playing the kazoo version of Eine kleine Nachtmusik alone in a b
