Review Detail

 
Casamigos Tequila Blanco
Blancos
Submitted by Tequila.net     December 18, 2013    
I liked it more when it first came out, but I have come to believe that many additives are used to manipulate this brand. They have all these stories on the "special" process but I don't believe that the taste is no more than softeners and additives to achieve this smoothness. It's acceptable but nothing special. The resting for 2 months, helps to make this blanco smooth with little burn, but there's more going on. It has a creamy vanilla, nutty nose and the taste is light in the oil and agave, it's creamy, spicy, citrusy and somewhat enjoyable. Saying it's smooth, is an understatement, which is where the controversy comes in. It is pleasant to drink, and a newcomer to tequila can easily be fooled by the smoothness and the hype. NOT a top quality clean and bold tequila by a long shot.
