The aroma is very light on this one, but I could smell roasted agave and black pepper at the beginning, followed but a fruitiness with layers of vanilla and caramel. Underneath that, the is some minerality and a touch of cinnamon and chocolate. The flavor very much follows the smell, I taste roasted agave, black pepper, caramel, vanilla and a bit of chocolate. There are also some nice berry and strawberry notes. This tequila has a nice sweetness that is just right. The finish is thin and ends rather quickly, which is a bit disappointing.

I’m a little baffled by several attributes of this bottle; on top of the usual questions that accompany every Cristallino, There’s the question of why this one doesn’t have the crystal clear color that supposedly characterizes the genre. Also, why did the manufacturers start with such an unusual bottling. Also, do all Cristallinos have chocolatey finishes?

The blanco was a high rating for me, however safe to say cristallinos are not my thing. Sweet stone fruit aroma. Lacking agave flavour, overtaken by oak to finish.

Nose is bright with sweet barrel tones. I find very little character to this tequila. Flavour is a bit confused, but I think it will be go over well with the general public. Not my cup of tea.

An interesting “cristalino”. Sweet on the nose but has a peppery finish to it. Worth a recommendation for guests to try this new tequila “category”

Yet again I’m faced with a cristalino devoid of any semblance of agave! Sharp alcohols drive the bus the entire time, it’s really not pleasant.

Ok is a Cristalino but I still get the agave present. Compare to another Cristalino this one taste good. I would recommend it but won't buy it again. I can taste some Agave and sweetness cant tell what it is but has a good finish

Just a tinge of straw to the color. Nose: Dark ripe fruit, dried pitted fruit, creamy vanilla and piquant mineral notes. A faint hint of tobacco. Flavors come on much more forcefully than the nosing. Popping baking spices greet snickerdoodle cookie dough flavors. There’s vanilla, almond paste and light nuttiness going on. As a counterpoint to the sweetness, there is numbing black and crushed red pepper heat. Finish: Pleasing lengthy, balanced finish. Sweet - but not dessert type sweet. Nice pinging pepper lingers.

Aromas of caramel, vanilla and dried fruit. The aroma has a barrel warmth to it, not flat or one note. Similar light touch flavors and I can still detect some barrel tannins in the mouth- rare for a cristalino! I like that the color is slightly golden so it won’t be visually confused with a blanco. This is an elegant example of the expression.

This is a cristalino that’s actually not bad. I am surprised. It hasn’t been overly filtered, so you still get some barrel notes. Vanilla, chocolate, slight cake batter. Some agave in the flavor. Has a medium thick mouth feel. Some tannins on the finish. Surprisingly good. There is still some color left to this, which is evidence that it hasn’t been overly filtered like most cristalinos.

Nice aroma, what I would expect from a crystallino , very smooth, semi sweet, just a bit of burn on the pallet, notes of whiskey , honey and spice , overall a good value and a nice sipper.

Exceptional taste especially getting rid of the smoky taste typically found in extra Añejos

My first bottle in the cristalino category. Notes of vanilla, tobacco, caramel, and agave. Suggest letting it breathe for a bit. Nicely done.

Cristalino -- The Hot New Tequila You Haven't Heard Of

It's been popular in Mexico for several years now, but cristalino tequila is still a pretty foreign concept in the United States.
