Bad, just bad. Nothing going on here. Another I had to spit out for fear of ruining my palate for the next Tasting...

REDUCED RATING- NOM 1137 blanco =56 for me. It's horrible, and it tasted more manipulated with vanilla cream custard the more I drank it...disgusting. The new NOM 1607 Repo is even worse... it's disgusting and undrinkable. That may be the WORST reposado I we've had=39

NOM 1137 | Aroma: Sweet cream soda, vanilla, light on agave, but I get cream soda through and through. Very prominent. A touch of caramel. Makes me wonder if this isn't additive heavy, or if they rested it in barrel. It smells nice, but nothing tells me this is tequila. Palate: The sweet cream soda on the nose comes through front and center. Agave is notably missing. I get a little bit of baking spice, vanilla, a touch of ethanol on the back end. Honestly, this is really tasty, very palatable, but not tequila. Definitely additive laden. I get mild hints of cooked agave, but man, it's really missing here. They made an interesting sipping spirit, but a mediocre tequila. Verdict: Skip I would give this a much higher score if I was trying to judge it as something other than tequila. As far as I’m concerned, it’s mediocre as a tequila, the agave is notably missing, the cream soda is dominating in the nose and palate. That’s not a bad thing if you want a dessert spirit, but it is if you want a sipping blanco. Tastes engineered, not crafted. No judgment if you like it, it’s clearly made to be palatable and tasty, probably makes a very interesting cocktail, but this doesn’t hold a candle to anything in its price range. It’s missing that nasty diffuser taste, so that’s good, but I can’t recommend this in good faith. I’m not going to completely dunk on it like all the fake outrage reviewers are, but it’s definitely not a good tequila in my eyes.

NOM 1137 | Cream soda, vegetal, candy nose with sweet cinnamon taste and bitter finish. Has light fingerprint of Cofradia products, but manipulated.

NOM 1137 | Lots of vanilla in the aroma here (a lot!!), but still retains that signature Cofradia green vegetal aroma. Flavor is super sweet, cinnamon, and vanilla. This flavor profile is designed for people who don’t like tequila.

NOM 1137 | Swamp water with vanilla flavor ... uuuhhhhgg!!

NOM 1137 | Nose: Minty, cinnamon, vanilla cotton candy-like aroma. The typical NOM #1137 swamp aroma, but bathed in vanilla. A little sharpness to the nose, perhaps a mineral note. Flavor: An entrance of thick vanilla viscosity. Slightly bitter pepper notes hitting the sides of my tongue and back of the throat . Tastes of artificially flavored vanilla saltwater taffy. A dash of cinnamon. Finish: An odd acrid aftertaste to the sweetness, and lingering sulfur detract from the tasting experience. I’m hoping that the next iteration of 818 out of new NOM #1607 brings significant improvements.

I'm not going to have a hissyfit like some of the landed snobberists on here, this is what it is. Someone wants to make a Tequila? F yes, go for it. Will people buy it? Maybe. This offering was sweet. Did I hate it? No. Hate is such a strong word..I hate to use it..nevermind...lol. I would prefer more Agave and some pepper on the finish. Might dab some behind my ear on Date night..wtf.

No nose. Sweet grassy taste, tolerable sweet ethanol burn for after taste. Decent value really but nothing to celebrate.

Ummm. Aroma is the most ridiculous part. Vanilla frosting and lots of fake flavors. In spite of all the artificialness it still has the Cofradia funk in the aroma. Taste is not good. Burnt brown sugar and no sign of agave…. I wasn’t even paying attention for the finish because the aroma and a taste are so bad and and an affront to real Tequila. Avoid.

So on the nose and in the taste I get a lot of flavors that I would not expect. Butterscotch, cake batter, fake vanilla none of which are especially pleasant. Little to no agave taste. If you like more of a liqueur taste maybe this works, I wouldn't even use this as a mixer.

NOM 1607 | Aroma: pronounced vanilla & ethanol Palate: vanilla bomb, grassy, green veg, baking spice It’s a shame that they went through all the trouble of Tahona method and then adulterated it with too much oak. It was probably fine when it came off the still. Many celebrity producers seem to follow the Casamigos vanilla profile which is a shame. People that want Casamigos will drink Casamigos, and this yet will be another heavily marketed brand that fades away. Unmemorable. Also a bummer because they look like they tried to market it with good intentions, sustainably, almost good methods, yadda yadda.

Highly flavored but a good intro tequila for people who have a tequila stigma from shooting the gold stuff. Too watery for mixing but may be fun to sip.

NOM 1137 | Gingerbread, cookie dough, potatoes Very light. Usually I like tequilas that are rich, a little bigger mouthfeel and a smooth finish, but this one is crisp and a bit clearer. Doesn’t last too long, tiny warmth, grassy notes

NOM 1137 | Swampy grass, petrol, and vanilla soft serve. I’ve never understood why the American Market loves sweetened tequila. People could save a bunch of money and just buy Smirnoff marshmallow. No dig intended but it’s remarkably similar. I knew I was going to flame this tequila as soon as I smelled and figured out it’s NOM. But gave it a fair shot - not a fan.

NOM 1137 | I have nothing against Kendall Jenner and don't dislike her or base anything I say on this about her. I judged this based on flavor alone. it's perfumey in the nose and grassy with a hint of funk on the palate. It's thin and has a grassy swampy flavor profile and that is basically it. It's not super flavorful and not a whole lot of complexity. There is no passion in this tequila and it shows.

NOM 1137 | I kept an open mind when opening this bottle of 818 Blanco. The fact that I’d never really tasted a truly good celebrity-back Blanco, along with the negative media coverage surrounding this Tequila’s release had me anticipating more of the same. 818 Blanco is certainly not more of the same, and the media coverage is certainly misguided. Maybe, they hadn’t actually tried the tequila. This is a remarkable Blanco Tequila. While I’m not one to express tequila nuisances, I know what tastes exceptional. The 818 Blanco Tequila is an exceptional tequila and a welcome addition to my collection.
