Generally agree with the comments. Holy green apple aroma! Strong agave flavour. A bit peppery. Fairly strong alcohol in the nose and flavour. I enjoyed it! Not the best, but sippable for sure. I do pick up that olive flavour (that I have only ever encountered with Fortaleza). A very decent value at $44 USD in Washington State. A bit harsh on the alcohol and not a huge finish. But solid nonetheless. Would make a DAMN fine marg. Second impression...... Very very strong cooked agave. Delish! Rating bumped to 86. I like this juice! People keep saying spicey and I am now getting a bit of cinnamon on the finish. Top of the middle shelf.

The aroma on this was surprisingly pleasant. I'm immediately greeted by green apple, with notes of raw and cooked agave underneath it. The nose takes on a more vegetal quality after a few more seconds, along with some pepper. After letting it sit for awhile longer, it starts getting minty with a tinge of citrus. I was pretty excited to taste this after experiencing all the scents on the nose, but was left disappointed. I do taste cooked agave, but the alcohol was quite harsh and hard to get through. If I close my eyes and concentrate, I get a bit of a briny flavor and black pepper, which was a bit of a relief from the alcohol. This got better in the finish, with the pepper flavor standing out and then slowly fading away.

This Blanco is 80 proof but it tastes like a higher proof tequila. The nose is full of clean fresh agave, white pepper and alcohol. I taste the vegetal agave first and then a mix of bright citrus and pepper. The finish is nice; it lingers. There isn’t anything harsh about this but it lacks depth. I attribute that to using a autoclaves. I’d recommend using this blanco for making a nice classic margarita. ¡Salud!

I'm getting apple, mint, and slight alcohol aroma and flavor. Flavor hits the tongue kind of hard, but the finish is softer. MSRP of $29, but got on sale for $22.

Honestly I can’t taste anything in this but alcohol. Perhaps I’ll give it another try on another day to edit this but for now not much flavor to buy again. Edited two weeks later. Still strong alcohol but does have a pepper flavor I like in tequila

The Dulce Vida Blanco flavor profile reminds me quite a bit of the Olmeca Altos Blanco. It just has more of it and the finish is a little warmer but not overpowering. There is just a very similar "notch" in the flavor profile of both of these tequilas that is subdued or withdrawn and finishes with that "olive brine" flavor and isn't overly complex or balanced. Good mixer but kind of boring for a sipper to me.

Green apple nose, spicy flavor and finish. Nice mouthfeel but the spicy finish is too much for me, personally.

Had to give this a ten in the value catagory because it was 16$ at Costco. Overall a nice tequila . Sippable for sure .

Nice downgrade to the 100 proof version that until recently was the only blanco in the line. Loads of agave right off the bat on the nose and on first taste. Resolves to caramelized agave and some anise along with alcohol numbing.
