Tequila el Jimador 100% Agave Blanco

Rooted in tradition, made for today.

Crafted with care, Tequila el Jimador 100% Agave Blanco is uncommonly smooth. With its transparent crystalline color, you can literally see its unrivaled clarity.

Upon first taste, you experience the blue agave with hints of citrus fruit like never before. Your drink comes to life with the spirit of the Jimador’s learned skills.

The name el Jimador honors the men who harvest the locally grown agave. It is their way of life. It is their passion. And we honor these men by taking the utmost of care at every step in crafting the finest tequilas the world can experience. Tequila el Jimador 100% Agave is the #1 tequila in Mexico, a testament to its high quality and authenticity.

Nice natural nose, not terribly overbearing. Tastes about like it smells. Has a nice texture, not real dry. Pretty smooth going down, attributable to the 100% agave no doubt. Wouldn't be something I would drink neat however... It's decent for cocktails and as a better alternative to cuervo or montezuma for buying friendly "shots" at a bar. Very modest price, but for roughly the same money, I HIGHLY recommend the reposado version over this. El Jimador Reposado sips well and makes for great cocktails too.

I was glad to see this 100% agave tequila once again on the market after a four year hiatus. Not one of my favorites but much better than the mixto version. As an inexpensive mixer it's hard to beat. The medium hot agave nose yielded some citrus while the taste was spicy agave citrus & alcohol. The body & smoothness were high points followed by a medium finish. Taking all things into consideration, this is a much better product than the mixto but not nearly as good as other higher priced blancos. You get what you pay for & for the money El Jimador Blanco is a reasonably priced tequila!

Tasted out of a snifter. This blanco begins where their reposado kept going, but with less butterscotch taste. Again, for $17 Bux, I'd be hard pressed to find a better 100% agave value.

Aroma: Slight fruit (raisin), tree fruit (cherry), and slight agave.
Initial Taste: A semi oily mouth feel, its sweet upon entry with very low bitterness. Initial taste was cherry.
Body: Agave, fruit, slight earth, and slight spices.
Finish: A sweet semi heated finish of medium duration with a lingering of tree fruit.
