Earthy & pepper aroma; I can slightly smell butter? Agave and earthy taste with slight pepper. I got this bottle for ~$28 on sale.

Earthy yet sweet this 34$ bottle is well balanced with a smooth taste and a normal alcohol finish. Would put it above a patron or don Julio blanco. Great for mixing.

Mmmmm! Very good! Nice sweet aroma. Very nice. Mineral and earth and agave flavour. Very decent value at $54 USD in Washington State. Much aroma and flavour that will take a few runs to pin down. Complex. A great sipper. A bit heavy on the alcohol finish and this would be my only criticism. There is a lot going on with this. And most of it good. Not a long lasting oily finish. Very fruity flavour and particularly aroma. Would love to get an expert opinion on this (Grover or Scarlett). Buttery? Not overly citrusey, maybe a bit in the nose..... But very fruity. Almost getting possible butterscotch. This one is complex. VERY tasty. Light cinnamon finish. Not as agave forward as some blancos. This one..... Mind blown in terms of ranking and flavour profile. May take a few runs. I greatly enjoyed it. Ranked 88 to reflect this. I picked this over others at the store similar price due to brick ovens -vs- autoclave. 3 days later..... Still love it. This would be a GREAT sipper. They are getting alot of flavour out of their process and ovens. This should be on people's radar. Am reducing criticism of alcohol flavour and lack of oily finish. I am a fan of Jaja Blanco. This finish is not terrible and am getting more cinnamon now vs alcohol. I took this rating seriously. Amazing how different all of these middle to top shelf tequilas are! You do not get this with whiskey.

The finish is slightly strong but not over the top. Good value for a Blanco. I’ll definitely buy again

Pretty smooth tequila, a little high on the price at $40. But still a keeper!

A merely okay tasting tequila let down by a high price tag. Would struggle- and cede to, imo- against many $20 tequilas out there. At the $40 price point in my area, it does not even warrant consideration, as it is not even in the same realm as others such as 7 Leguas, Pasote, Suerte, and lots of others.

Very earthy agave nose, with sweet notes, but the tequila was well balanced not very sweet and a perfect hint of pepper to the super smooth finish.
