Clean fresh agave and citrus (lime). Lovely nose. A lot of agave up front, slightly vegetal and a touch of sweet. The finish is nice, slightly thin but peppery.

Aroma : Agave with some baking spices and floral notes. Light fruits. Taste : Sweet cooked agave and vanilla with grass, mint, light spices and pepper. Nice oily texture. Finish : Medium length with light alcohol, and prolongs the floral notes prominent on the nose and initial taste. Budget priced tequila, but sips like a high end bottle. I'm curious how the minty quality here translates to the Reposado and Añejo, but neither of those were on Old Town Tequila where I got this. I'll have to look around.

Absolutely no flaws that stick out....this is amazing from start to finish. Makes me wonder why every brand can’t perform at this level for this price point?!? Recommend stocking up.

Nose starts out with minerals, baked agave, tropical fruits and lively spices. Floral with some nutmeg... liking the nose. Flavors rolling in of mint, sweet agave, vanilla and light pepper. Nice mouth feel. Balanced solid finish. Leaves a soft feeling finish in my mouth.

Tasted from a taller bottle that I just brought back from Jalisco. At 38% ABV this hand crafted Blanco has a great agave presence both on the nose and in the mouth. Caramelized sugar sweetness presents on the initial sip that gives no taste of being anything other than natural. A moderate and slightly spicy finish rounds out an excellent offering from El Arenal.

This nice little blanco Tequila has become one of my favorites. Currently I find this tequila to be the best value Tequila and a great example of a traditional Valley tequila. Lots of agave aromas, even if you pour it on your palm you will immediately feel that it has a lot of agave value in it. As for the taste it is super unique. Apart from the usual peppery, agave notes, this tequila has a certain licorice taste to it which can be heavier or lighter depending on the batch the one I currently drink (lote 1051) is well balanced and it has a nice acidity and a long finish. This tequila is great to mix with even simple water - just add a dash into your water and enjoy!

I don’t think you can find a better Blanco under $30. Packs great agave flavor with a hint of vanilla at the finish

Excellent, excellent tequila. Very affordable whether you’re getting it in the States($30) or in Mexico($260 pesos in January 2020, in Jalisco). Enjoyable, short finish. Super flavorful and vegetal, extremely agave forward stuff. Good enough to sip neat. Blows PLENTY of other bigger names out the water at a fraction of the cost. Just a good tequila made the right way, I trust anything from this NOM.

Sweet, sweet agave nose, fruity too. Aroma is fun and easy. After a few sips the sweet minty comes out as it finishes. Thick, beautiful legs on the glass, thick in the mouth. This stuff has it’s own personality, it needed two whole hours to properly open up...wow! This one is kind of fun, well done!

As good as it gets, really. Asparagus, cooked agave, sweet potato (cooked), unripe banana, vegetables and alcohol (bottom of the aroma column) all in the nose. This elixir coats the mouth with a nice viscosity and the tears don’t break. I love this stuff.
