Not great. Mostly alcohol. Weird finish and additives.

Light amber in the glass. Aroma of vanilla that seems added, and a hint of cake batter. Flavor of vanilla, black pepper. There just isn't any agave flavor, Probably due to the diffuser process. Very little finish. This might appeal to a new tequila drinker.

On the nose, a touch of vanilla, ethanol and a bit of agave. Something vaguely chemical, not good but not overly offensive. On the palate, very bland. A little sweet but to be honest, it mostly doesn’t taste like much at all. It’s “smooth”, and doesn’t taste like tequila, but rather “tequila flavor”, if that makes sense. I can see why people buy this for shots, but it’s definitely not great.
