Not much to say, mixto, diffuser, additives, headaches. Not a bad nose, harsh flavoring

I took this from a friend's bar with the promise to replace it with some real tequila. I didn't pour it out right away, but I should have. I took a sip and once it was in my mouth I couldn't swallow it, so spit it back into the sample glass. The nose isn't appealing, the taste isn't appealing and well you get the idea. Not recommended. Of over 420 tequilas I have rated in the app this is the bottom of the barrel as far as taste and quality.

I don't think I could even put this in a frozen fruity margarita anymore. Let Jay Leno put it in his gas tank.

Kind of like Budweiser in that in that it has sentimental value. Never would’ve known tequila without this. Don’t know why, but the smell always made my mouth water. The taste and finish brought some regrets but I came back because I didn’t know any better. Not rushing to fill a glass with this now but can’t hate it. Too much history.

Why this exists I don't know. I suppose at some poi t in life it was what I could afford to get drunk with tequila. Not good at all.

This is the first tequila I ever had and it turned me off to all tequila for 12 years. It was so bad that I hated tequila with a passion after that and almost felt sick just thinking about it. Today, tequila is my favorite spirit and it’s what I drink almost exclusively. How different things would’ve been if I had Fortaleza as my introduction to tequila all those years ago…

Smells and tastes like rotten cabbage. I took a shot of this to remind myself how bad some tequilas truly are. I still regret doing so.
