Still the best Cristalino I’ve run across, I like that it still maintains some of the agave profile in the nose. Scary smooth, this is the kind of bottle that gets drained without even noticing. Really sweet milk chocolate ending.

Nose: Citrus, pineapple and agave. Some cinnamon and licorice. Flavors: Vanilla, toasted hazelnuts, leather notes followed up with mellow black pepper. Borderline too sweet for me. I’m not generally a fan of cristalinos, but this might be the best of the genre.

Light, unremarkable aroma. Much stronger flavor and finish; oak, vanilla, caramel. Medium body with a smooth lingering finish.

Too much vanilla on the finish but not enough on the nose, not a big fan of the Clear añejos, no wood flavor on an añejo? The finish reminds me of Splenda aftertaste

Aroma is medicinal with hint of coconut.

Tastes very manipulated, odd, does not taste like you would expect a tequila to taste. I suppose that if you don't like the taste of tequila, that may be a good thing, but I'm not one of those people.

$50-$75 Range - not a bad Tequila for the money. This is a Cristalino Anejo because it is filtered through carbon to remove color.. seems like it would have been smoother, but overall decent.

Aroma: smells strongly of toffee, some agave, sor to how crystallized things smell flavor: so very smooth, light and sweet, envelops the mouth, a little spice at the front, feel the warmth in your chest finish: not terribly strong but lingers a fair amount. enjoyable, and could sip this regularly.

Aroma: Toffee, Caramel, followed by a tiny bit of agave. Very sweet. Flavor: More agave than on the nose. Still sweet with caramel and vanilla notes. Finish: Not super long. Leaves a sugar taste in the mouth. Tiny bit of a tingly feeling.

I don’t get too much agave smell, tastes of vanilla and maybe some caramel, easy to sip with good finish, not too seeet like an Addictivo

In my humble opinion: the aroma is of passion fruits. The taste is a mild pepper start with a smooth finish. The hangover is zilch if you only use this to mix and to shoot. This is a great choice for someone who is on a budget but wants a high quality tequila to compare to Don Julio 1942. The price is around $45 - $70. A must for your daily consumption.

Aroma of vanilla, cooked agave and a hint of oak. They filtered most of the oak out with the color filtration. Flavor of vanilla that almost tastes like it was added. Mild finish.

I really like the nose on this! Lots of vanilla, toffee and oranges without smelling cloyingly sweet. I pick up an herbal aroma, some wood and a hint of chocolate. Oak hits first for the flavor. Followed y cooked agave, herbal notes ... maybe chives or oregano? It is somewhat vegetal.. a bit bitter / astringent ...rather like parsley .. not unplesant but subtle. There are still lots of nice aged bourbon barrel notes. Some nice heat and flavor layering. Fortunately the filtering for making it a cristalino didn't remove all the flavor. It has a nice long pleasant finish. I like this!!

Still my favorite Cristalino. So smooth. Still holding on to some flavor, unlike Dobel.

Cristalino sounds like a great nomenclature for marketing but this product just remind me a Mr. Softee cone. Excessively vanilla flavor and sweet. Hard to believe this spirit one day was an Añejo. Cristalino suena perfecto para una campaña publicitaria pero este producto me recuerda a los helados de maquina sabor vainilla. Dulcísimo y con semejante gusto es muy difícil de creer que, este licor algún día fue un Añejo.

Brings out the sweetness in the citrus notes of a classic marg.

Quizá no entendí el concepto, pero no encontré un sabor característico de los tequilas añejos. En lugar de encontrar tonalidades a barrica, aprecié algunas notas a pimientos que no fueron de todo mi agrado.

Agave is pretty much lost in this tequila. Really sweet and fake vanilla flavor.
