It's amazing to return to this product with some age. Sauza was my go to Tequila in my early college days as it was affordable, tasted like agave and didn't immediately make me want to puke like Cuervo. But alas my fond memories of this product aren't to last now that I have a more sophisticated palate. Let's begin with the aroma. For a mixto, it's honestly not bad. There is a pungent smell of alcohol interwoven with agave but it doesn't overpower the other notes. There's hints of green apple, a vegetal muskiness and an undefined floral characteristic. I'm floored that the official tasting notes are pretty accurate though calling the floral smell Jasmine feels a bit fanciful from Sauza's part. Faintly in the background there is a white pepper note doing it's best to hide itself away. The taste itself is also surprisingly palatable--don't get me wrong here, I don't mean it's *good* but it isn't undrinkable. Agave with a strong ethanol presence dominates the palate. It feels extremely disjointed & unrefined but honestly it doesn't burn the tongue. The mid palate is of artificial green apple and there's a weird, almost tea like note in the back. It's completely undefined but not unpleasant. Almost as if you brewed a third cup of the same tea only to find out most of the flavor is gone. It's also a surprisingly salty, borderline briny Tequila. It isn't immediately apparent. Rather as you drink it and reflect on it you realize there's a weird saltiness in your tongue and it's hard to ignore when you notice it. But it's also not super prominent. Hard to describe. It's basically annoying enough to make itself known but not enough to "ruin" the experience, not that tasting this is super pleasant to begin with. But where the Tequila really falls apart is the finish. It doesn't burn you the way Jose Cuervo Especial does. It is, however, fairly bitter. Pretty akin to eating the pith of a lime with some weird citrusy undernotes. This lasts for about 20 seconds before giving way to both a white pepper finish and an absolutely terrible swill of processed chemicals. The pepper does a good job in masking the chemical process but sadly it lingers in the back of your throat for way longer than it should. I wouldn't really recommend this Tequila for sipping or drinking by itself. It isn't half bad for making a giant, cheap margarita mix for a large gathering though. But it has few uses as a serious mixer. I recommend the Zapopan if you want a cheap mixer.

Strong alcohol on the nose and throat. It burns going down. A little vegetal but not a good sipper.

I buy this tequila only because it's the cheapest in the supermarket and my only use for it is in my marinade for making beef jerky. Yes jerky! The agave takes the place of any sugar and thins the marinade enough to shorten the time it takes to soak into the meat. Everyone loves the taste of the jerky though.
