On the nose, Vanilla and cherry. Cake batter, and then that familiar agave aroma, with some cinnamon and general baking spices. The cake batter is really the star of the show, reminds me of La Gritona. Its all very aromatic and light, that’s the best way I can describe it. On the palate, Surprisingly more agave than the nose would suggest but that vanilla cake batter is strong. Definitely sweet, though not as overly sweet as it smells. Some aromatic almond notes, honey. This is definitely on the sweeter side. Overall, this is interesting, its only the second cristalino I’ve tried. San Matias claims additive free, but this is a weird one. There is a lot of interesting aromas but theres definitely similarities to the XA. Its fine, it blows DJ70 out of the water so worth a shot for that specific niche, but it’s definitely a little bland. I’ll keep this on hand for my hardcore DJ70/42 fans. I wont be keeping a bottle of this on hand.

Heavy heavy sweet cake batter aroma. So much that I can’t detect anything else. Major vanilla bomb in the mouth. I guess this is aimed at people who are either brand new to tequila, or who don’t actually like tequila. It’s not for me, though.

Sweet, cake batter aroma, silky mouthfeel and simple cake batter flavor. Not bad at all- easy to drink, just not complex. Maybe a good choice for a tequila beginner, but a more experienced drinker won’t find agave or diverse barrel notes here.

Very soft agave notes as almost any cristalino , you can’t perceive alcohol aromas, sweet vanilla taste

You may just want to mix with some sparkling water or something. It's an ok tequila when you think of all the stuff on the shelf in the USA. I bought because of Cristalino, but wouldn't buy again. For the same price there are much better tequilas. This is not a negative review, but more of a "myeh".

I really like the aroma. Hoping that the taste is the same Taste of fresh agave and simply flavors. Lacking a lot of finishing flavors. Wasn’t what I was really expecting. I get this a lot from the Cristalino category. Not a big fan of filtering out essence an Añejo just to get it back to clear.

An after dinner sweet dessert tequila, otherwise too sweet me. Aroma and taste of agave, honey, spices with cinnamon and white pepper evident. I'd not dilute this one as a mixer. To me the tastes would be compromised. If you get it and keep it - don't mix it . . . I have some confusion as to the rationale or lack of it - in having 3 or 4 styles of bottles between S M and S M Legado. Mixtos, agave 100%, Tacoma, etc., etc.! I'd love it simple and straight forward. Oh! Their bottle stopper on this style bottle is not the best, not even so-so, it sucks, unless you plan to open the bottle and it and use it all at once . . . cuz it pops off spontaneously ! ! !
