Little musk and funk on the nose, green apple and black licorice. Notes of orange peel, cinnamon and spice, ends with white pepper and a pretty long finish. At home in a cocktail

I can’t get past that proprietary yeast, it’s a pretty honest effort from Cofradia and one of the better products I’ve tried. Still not recommended, if this. Rand wants to be taken seriously they should find an alternate producer.

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

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.

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

Strong agave flavor, maybe a tad harsh for my taste.

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.

Love the smell of it. Floral, citrus, agave, mild pepper with heat. I like it. It's a solid juice, slight bite but not bitter. Goes good with a lime.

Really interesting aroma mostly good with some strong alcohol. Aroma is earthy with minerals. Taste is good and not too hot. Finish is nice with long-lingering pepper and agave.

There is tons of agave and citrus on the nose. Very pleasant nose. The palate has a lot of black pepper to go with the agave and citrus. The extra alcohol is very apparent on the palate. The finish is peppery and vegetal. It lasts and has some sweetness to it. This was an outstanding value at $28.

Wasn’t crazy about this the first time I tried it but it was early in my tequila experience. It’s fairly complex with a nice vegetal character.

Fairly strong alcohol on the nose until letting it breathe for a while. Nice vegetal/agave taste with notes of citrus. Pretty good, but I was a little disappointed. B-

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.

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

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!

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.

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
