I just gotta say, this product sucks. Medicinal nose. Unpleasant mouth feel and kind of nasty finish. Waste of money.

Hmmm. Well you either love it, or you hate it. Personally I’ll stick with more traditional methods and an agave forward flavor profile.

Sweet agave and citrus.. medicinal with a very light nose. Pepper, there’s a light burn and fades quickly.

Aromas of green apple (jolly rancher), sweet bubble gum and varnish. Disappears in the mouth with saccharine sweet finish. Unfortunately, a diffusor product with, I presume, additives. No agave here

Nose of citrus, berries and spices. Floral. Cinnamon, licorice, fruit and some heat at the back of throat. I can hear the groans... But I’ve had worse. I liked it better than the Joven. A little cloying sweetness on the finish.

Very surprised ! I have had the sipping tequila and this one at a much lower price point (still little overpriced) and I expected this to be not great! At 1/4 th the price of the sipping tequila this is great. Little expensive but very enjoyable Blanco

(Rated blind) Varnish aroma and flavor. Chemicals. Not pleasant at all. (This is what you should expect from a diffuser-made product. Made on the cheap, then sold as if it wasn't. Downright offensive.)

Casa Dragones leaves me wanting more. Very light on the nose with almost no agave. Light green vegetal flavor with no burn but a numbness on the back of the throat. I only paid $49 for my bottle so this improved my rating. I think they wanted $89 for it.

Blind rated. On the nose this one is very citrusy and aromatic. Agave is barely perceivable if ever. Strong note of mint and anise dominate the aroma. In the palate it's very smooth, almost no burn. Here again strong notes of mint and anise, slight pepper and no agave. Only in the long finish finally cooked agave makes its appearance. Finish is in fact my favorite part on this one. No doubts this is a worthy juice, simply not enough agave presence overall for my taste.

Aroma: lacquer with cherry. Flavor: some cherry comes through but over powered by chemical flavor, would not know this was a tequila. Finish: short and sour.

Nose is floral with some fake sweetness. Legs are very slow to develop. Flavor has that floral element as well. Finish is of moderate length.

Very strong agave notes and also slightly medicinal and citric. Initially, I got a strange note (I think peanuts) that mellowed as it sat. The flavor is much more balanced. I get some agave as well as some pepper. It's an interesting tequila. The aroma wasn't my favorite and it's definitely overpriced but the flavor is decent (not great but not terrible). There are just so many tequilas at half the price that I would much prefer to this.

Strong floral aroma with undertones of agave and a hint of black pepper. Slightly syrupy texture with spicy flavor and a hint of vanilla. Quite a bit going on here. So far from a classic blanco that it makes you wonder what exactly is going on. Finish is short to medium and leaves you wondering...

Rated blind. Nose was a little chemically harsh on the initial pour, but softened into agave notes after opening up, some nice fresh green herbal/vegetal notes though as well. Nice legs in the glass. Has a quick hint of sweetness upon entry and becomes agave-forward without overwhelming the palate. Launches into a great pepper finish with citrus accents. Very nice. Not overwhelming. Pretty pricey though, probably not worth it. I would drink this again if someone else poured it for me, but at this price I would certainly be looking to other options. This gets hit hard on value, which also impacts buy/recommend scores. This is a 3x distilled, highly filtered tequila. I also think a diffuser may be used in extracting lower-quality agave starches for fermentation.

Doesn't taste like tequila more like anis infused with agave. Overpriced

Nose: Very little of the traditional notes I'm accustomed to in a blanco. Smells like cotton candy and marshmallows blended with licorice and alcohol. Mouth: Another reviewer mentioned it tasted like potpourri (and not in a good way). It was difficult for me to imagine potpourri as part of a tequila "flavor" profile, but the reviewer was spot-on... it tastes like I imagine a mouth full of floral-scented woodchips would taste... not good. I also experienced a lingering fake sugary aftertaste. It's not a good representation of anything resembling a real tequila... blanco, or otherwise.

Extremely smooth.

Smells like potpourri, tastes unnaturally bitter with an odd hint of mint just before the alcohol ruins your taste buds. It's not good, and the price tag is preposterous.

The aroma is ok but everything goes downhill from that point. Kind of a saccharine sweetness that tastes like diet cola and the finish has an unappealing medicine/alcohol flavor. Easily my least favorite tequila I’ve had in a long time. Hard pass.

This did not taste like tequila. Drank more like a fruity liqueur, but not a good one. Maybe it had a vague agave presence. The drain had more of this than me. Wife could not identify this as tequila when handed a glass early in the evening. It's too bad expensive brands almost always fail to be stewards of the industry.

Over priced, over hyped “smooth” tequila. Column and diffuser product. Poor agave notes.

Black licorice and pepper.
