For a Blanco this is one of my favorites let me make it clear I am not a Blanco Chick. I tried this without knowing the price a friend of mine brought it back from Mexico so I was not influenced by the cost factor at the time. I drink all tequila Neat I simply like to taste it. It is a bit sharp in the finish but that does not bother me it feels warm and bright not burning, I think that is characteristic of the Blanco. That aside I had several shots of it I really like the floral note’s in the bouquet. The smell makes it taste better and that makes all the difference. I have since learned it is VERY affordable. If you are not normally a Blanco drinker try it you might like it.

Bright and clear with a nickel sheen. Characteristic of its region, nose offers florals, fruit & mild agave. Oily and semi-sweet in the mouth with an agreeable alcohol balance. Sweetness fades in a moderate finish leaving a satisfying tingle and mild herbal & spice aftertaste.
Excellent value for the $21 price. It makes a very, very good margarita.
