A little too sweet, and vanilla tasting but easily a sipper.The nose gave sweet, floral, anise and vanilla with very mild pepper/spice.The initial taste was thin/med oil, slight brine,and oak with a slight burn. It went on to be slightly peppery and spicy with the vanilla taste and some brine.The spicy finish lingers for a bit. The bottle is a keeper, the juice was good but not great.- Long Island Lou Tequila

Tasted neat in a snifter. Crisp, spicy, fresh agave initial taste. Warm, vanilla body that was over-powering. Slow, sweet finish. I was not impresses with the tequila. I was dissapointed, even though the price was 27.97

The AsomBroso bottle...everyone's already said it or thought it.

Aroma: Earthy agave with hints of vanilla and spice.
Initial Taste: Very sweet. Agave and vanilla.
Body: Semi-oily. A custard-like flavor. Very strange for a blanco. Some agave, vanilla and spice. Clearly this is rested for some time.
Finish: Short finish. Sweet, not at all peppery. For blanco purists, this will be disappointing, but it's not a bad finish.

This is a strange blanco because it drinks like it's rested and has taken barrel properties. It's sweet and pleasant, but without a ton of complexity. If you can get a deal, this is worth it. It's been discounted a lot of places, so do your homework and find it for a good price.

The phallic bottle made me a little leery. The taste didn't help me get past the bottle. Hints of cheap potpourri, which is not a good thing.

Aroma: Definitely a unique and enjoyable aroma - hard to describe
Initial Taste: Oily and sweet
Body: Licorice, then vanilla and agave, then cinnamon
Finish: Smooth and short

Bought 1/15/2010, $40 for bottle.
Drank neat from a caballito many nights since :)

Fairly sweet and also very smooth, but a little light on agave for a blanco. This is a unique tequila of obvious quality, unlike any others I have tasted. I think it's worth trying at least once simply for that reason. That said, I have never liked the flavor of licorice or fennel seeds and this tequila has a noticeable licorice flavor. I still enjoy drinking it which may say something about it's quality, although I doubt I would purchase again because there are many other brands in the price range I enjoy more. Very cool bottle - I replaced the clear plastic cork with a wooden one and it is much less phallic looking now :)
