Aroma : Cooked agave, oak, vanilla. Some pepper and cinnamon here as well. Taste : Some agave presence, caramel, cinnamon, not as much oak as I would expect from the aroma. Some black pepper as well as nutmeg and anise. Finish : Medium length with caramel, cinnamon, and orange flavor. More agave and very light pepper here as well. This doesn't have as much of the "green" flavor the Plata has, something I could do without, but I wish the flavors were more pronounced here.

Really punchy, I would definitely recommend this for making cocktails, it scratches an itch that not many brands do(boozy and agave forward).

I don't get why some esteemed fellows tequileros are so lenient with this juice. I could taste the artificial-chemical vanilla sweetness even when mixed in a Jamaica Marg. Not for me, I don't care at what price!

Aroma: This one is very briny. It almost reminds me a bit of an olive. There is also a hint of oak. Flavor: The flavor is a definite surprise. I was thinking it was going to be a bit salty but ended up being much more peppery. I also get a little hint of oak Finish: The finish is pretty mellow and not too exciting. It falls off pretty quickly.

This tequila is definitely delivering a bang for the buck. It is priced low enough that it could be used by bars in cocktails, but I can drink this straight with no problem. The aroma isn't bad, but it's not my favorite part of the experience. The flavor is just loaded with sweet delicious caramelized baked agave, and the finish delivers a long and pleasant creamy vanilla treat. I am shocked that they can create this level of tequila at this price.

Definitely back sweetened with a medicinal after taste. Sweet and peppery up front with a full mouthfeel. This will be saved for mixing and marinades.

Eyes: Clear bright honey, flowing legs and minimal tears. Nose: Some agave, hint of caramel, oak, some prune and cherries(?), tamarind, alcohol. Taste: Cooked agave, apple cider, prune, some cherry, tamarind is still there, butterscotch, leather, roasted nuts, toasted bread. Finish: short finish with some heat. The roasted nuts and butterscotch stayed with me for a while. Dry finish. For the price, this is an excellent tequila, but it’s magic is in making mixed drinks. I love using this for palomas.

I enjoy this one more than the blanco. This has a good mouthfeel with sweet vanilla agave. Smooth with good complexity and mouthfeel. Will make a terrific complex flavored margarita. Can’t go wrong with the quality production, flavor, and great price.

One of my favorite value brands. It's good, it's cheap, it's easy to find. Sip OA neat while you watch TV or do some other mundane weekday activity. Save the good stuff for special occasions.

This reposado is pretty hard to beat for the price, but is best used in cocktails. The wood doesn't have a very strong influence on the aroma, with mostly agave, black pepper, and citrus notes showing up first. There is a bit of oak and vanilla in there if you look for it. Flavor is very similar, with a touch of smokey and salty flavors coming out as well.

Nose: Weakly alcohol. Maybe a bit of oak or pepper. Flavor: Peppery like the blanco, but a maybe a bit mellowed. Has more of an alcohol kick than expected. Nothing too crazy and not offensive. Finish: short burn with a paper feel after. Final: Not great to sip. Solid for mixing. Would suit any drink. If I owned a bar this could be an easy house tequila. Value: Cheap.

Milder nose of baked agave than Milagro reposado. Sweetness on back of nose. Tate of baked agave, again more mild than Milagro. Very easy to sip. Would be great mixed.

A bargain (in the San Diego area) $20.00 Nice reposado that is in my inventory!!!

So good. So smooth. Goes down so easy. So cheap. Typical Repo - caramel, agave, butterscotch, mild vanilla, oak, cinnamon and pepper. $38 in Vancouver which is an absolute steal. Lingering peppery cinnamon finish. I prefer blancos. But this is tasty. And smooth. A great introduction to tequila for newbies on the cheap. After a few days it seems to have lost its edge/oompf a bit. Less flavour and aroma. But still good. Dropped 88 to 86.

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.
