This is a very solid tequila. I bought the 3 bottle sampler pack and this was my second favorite behind the reposado.

To this date I've been comparing all blancos that I try to Don Julio as it is my favorite so far. I like my blanco to be light and crisp I dunno if that's popular or not so just know that's how I judge things.

This has a nice clean bright smell to it which already told me that I should expect something good.

The taste is very balanced with a crisp citrus agave tone to it. To me this falls in the same lines as Don Julio and Patron not the best of the best but it's good enough to accomplish what you want to get done. I wouldn't put this ahead of Don Julio, but it would be a good alternative and cheaper and better tasting than Patron.

Bad, Good, Great? For me good, for what it is great!

Tasted out of a Riedel glass. Im sure we are all aware of the hype surrounding this brand. My first reaction to anything hyped is pessimistic. But I went into this with a clear unbiased head. First off, the website is VERY uninformative, focusing more on the merchandising than the product. To sum up, I'd say this tequila is very 'unimposing'. I can see a 'newbie' loving it. But for me, it lacked character and 'umph'. Almost too smooth, maybe even watery? For me, it lived up to the hype ( in my world, the more hype, the weaker the product). Im just saying there are better blancos out there for your buck. Just my opinion, as always.

Aroma: A faint aroma of vegetal and earth.
Initial taste: A slightly 'creamy' entry with a hint of agave.
Body: A light agave body, with hints of grass, and earth.
Finish: Weak. Slight heat. With a slight agave lingering.

Just not memorable. Im glad I got a tasting flight, because I have no desire to go get a bottle.

First tried this in NY when it came out. Was expecting more based on all the press. The initial nose was good along with the initial taste however the finish was not good. Almost a residual detergent taste. The GM came over while I was tasting it and he agreed with me on the finish. Unfortunately for Avion he said he would not be reordering.
