Nose is usual agave, pepper, citrus, a bit of mint. Flavor and finish are a bit bland, a bit weak. It’s still good and given the price it’s a bargain.

Nose vinegary, touch smoke, and peppery initially. This improves and develops with oxygen contact, with the pepper enhancing and the vinegar evaporating thankfully. Notes of lime, pepper, agave, vanilla.

This is a great bargain for what you get! Decent amount of roast agave and black pepper on the nose, along with loads of green veggie notes. You also get a good hit of earth and minerals, as well as a subtle citrusy aroma. Flavor is very similar, with a bit less definition on the citrus notes.

Earthy, minty aroma. Goes down smooth, with a peppery finish that lingers well after the drink. Very good tequila for the price.

I wasn’t a fan of this tequila. I didn’t like the nose, taste, or finish. It wants to be buttery. Agave is there. And. Fennel? Medicinal to me. I don’t like it.

In theory, the attraction here is obvious — partial tahona ground at around $20 a bottle. In practice, though, it just doesn’t deliver. The nose starts promisingly enough, not the brightest agave notes but pleasantly rounded beneath a bit of saline and petrichor. The palate is where it falls apart. It comes off alcoholic hot (curious at just 80 proof), unpleasantly peppery, with an almost sour note and then notable bitterness in the finish. None of these are things I want in blanco tequila. It makes a fine cocktail, though honestly most cheap tequilas do. Disappointed, I must admit, as the bona fides had me excited.

The Best Tequilas for Under $30

Why does good tequila have to be so damn expensive? It doesn’t! Even though there are a variety of tequilas at wide-ranging price points, buying a cheap tequila can feel like a risky proposition for many people.
