Herradura Tequila Blanco
Blancos
Submitted by Tequila.net     May 13, 2007    
The aroma is organic chem lab: isoamyl acetate (banana oil) and acetone perhaps. Sickly sweet, really unusual for a tequila. The initial taste is just more organic solvents. What's in this stuff? Then it reveals a watery mouthfeel. The taste changes into a dry, bitter, not unpleasant taste typical of agave. This would have made a great beginning. Little aftertaste or burn.

This is especially disappointing for Herradura as they make the most highly regarded tequila here for just a few hundred dollars more. I will not buy this again.
