Horrible as a Cristalino gimmick. Fake pine, vanilla, chocolate, fruit etc. An overly sugary finish... absolutely horrendous

Not a fan of Cristalino’s, it has its place in our Tequila market. If I had to like one, this would be it. It’s definitely different, smooth but I feel they strip the true flavors of an Anejo besides the color. I’ll stick with DJ Anejo or 1942

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.

Vanilla, caramel, but lacks in agave

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.

Overrated tequila in the Hispanic community. Price on this bottle specifically has spiked $25-$30 more than before. Stick with Fortaleza or 7 leguas

Too many additives. Stay away and drink additive free tequila.

This is the only cristalino I have tried. I can see where it’s going to create smooth experience by tampering down the spice and highlighting the sweetness and vanilla. I would probably explore other options next time in the cristalino but if you find it at Costco for $60 like I did then it’s not a bad deal.

It's not completely awful? It has Barrel notes and vanilla but very little agave. It's shippable if there's nothing else better but certainly not a go to.

Original DJ Anejo is better. This has a nice aroma, but the taste and after has the burn of a Blanco.

While it tastes smooth and has the added flavors of vanilla and caramel , then they filter out color and ? A bit pricey for a “ non authentic “ tequila . Don Julio would not be pleased .

This is smooth. Lovely aroma to start, my nose filled with notes of vanilla and oak. The taste at first is smooth and follows up with a bit of a bite. The finish makes this experience a high rated one in my book. Definitely a sipper, no mixing here.

Finish is a little strong and long lasting. Woodsy… little spice. NOM 1449

Clear Anejo which I always find strange. Very smooth - almost too smooth. Not as caramely as other anexos.

Taste more like a blanco than an anejo.

I very much enjoyed this tequila. It went down easy, but still had some flavor of an anejo. While not as flavorful as an anejo, the silky mouthfeel makes this tequila one of my favorites.

It’s not bad for the price point but herradura ultra is far more interesting
