Sadly the worst Don Julio tequila ever reviewed. Simply undrinkable. Over priced … gimmicky

Well I won this tequila in a new years raffle and I was excited to try it so here it is. In the Smell I get wood, agave and alcohol. the taste is sweet and pleasant with no burn a little woody there. Finish goes down without a burn and leaves you with a nice taste. Overall what keeps this tequila at a low point average is the price, you can get better quality and many more with $600.
