Pretty good for mixing a margarita. I don’t enjoy it for sipping.

Nose: Rich agave with a light undertone of alcohol. There is a bit of a woody smell too although it complements the profile rather than take the reins. Taste: The best way I could describe this is inoffensive. Nice tingle of agave and some oak. Nothing overly sweet, just a mild bite of alcohol that overlays a caramel undertone. Reminiscent of a really old Werther’s original you find in your pocket on a cold rainy day walking back from the bank. Finish: Strangely effervescent. Maybe because there wasn’t any one strong flavor in the taste, the alcohol/flavor profile has a light bubbling on the tongue.

This tastes like an end to quarantine, like hope on the horizon.

Too spicy and unoriginal. I want to like it, but each sip is different, and I only like half of them. Good for the price, but there's better at this price point.

Decent if you apply the “value” tag. Definitely better then Jose but not in the discussion with stronger offerings regardless of current review score.

For a lower priced reposado, this will get the job done and still goes down easy.

Vanilla and caramel on the nose, very sweet smelling. Peppery and smokey taste. I was actually really surprised to find that the Blanco was smoother than the repasado. Personally will stick to the Blanco going forward.

Bargain price, consistency always, nice hint of caramel with a very smooth finish. Sip it or mix it, adapts well either way. Nice go to-everyday tequila. Few at this price point can touch it

Smells sweet, caramel maybe? Taste is sweet, nice body and mouthful. Spicy finish. Not bad for the price

Light on the oak here, though certainly a little something extra from the blanco, and it ultimately works to nice effect, adding a touch of dryness and spice to a decent agave showing. It all ends up feeling rather lean and not in a bad way either. Value is high, typically available <$20 around here. Recommended.

Love this tequila. So smooth and is the perfect sipping or mixer at a great price. My go to tequila.

Lots of pine right away on the nose, with hay present. Very average for a sipper with somewhat of an unpleasant burn. It is heavier and oily in a nice way. Finish isn’t bad however...butter, pine, and alcohol wrap it up then disappears.

Aroma of agave and vanilla Flavours of agave (cooked) and vanilla almost turning into a caramel Finish the alcohol flavour and burn comes in pretty strong at the end Would be good as a shot or for margaritas

I found this at Target for $21 on sale, and it tastes like a $21 tequila. Not a terrible tequila, I have had much worse. Decent flavor and finish, but there are plenty of other tequilas that I would rather sip. I could have bought a bottle of Olmeca Altos blanco for $20. Regrets.....

Aroma : Agave, alcohol, vanilla, cinnamon and oak . Nothing too complex here. Taste : Alcohol and agave with a fair amount of vanilla and oak. Again nothing too complex here. To me it seemed like the notes got "mixed" together or something of the like. It might have something to do with the oddly sweet nature of the vanilla notes. Finish : Finish is somewhat short with a bit of spice and alcohol, with some vanilla notes here as well. This is a pretty basic tequila. Not bad, but it's not something I would drink straight again. I'm sure it would go well in a margarita though.

This is an easy drinking tequila that is surprisingly inexpensive. If you want a nice tequila for your party that won't break the bank then here you go.

This is a shot tequila for fun parties at a decent price, but falls short of a sipping tequila under my ratings

Nose: Had a sweetness of honeysuckle, caramel, wood, citrus and berries. Muted agave. Tongue: A little hot. Agave was not the star of the show. Butterscotch, oak, light vanilla, sweetener, pressure-cooked agave. Long, but somewhat artificial finish. With that said, it wasn’t offensive. The price point is fantastic, just not an all-night sipper, for me.
