Tasted out of a snifter. El Tesoro Platinum is one of the smoothest blancos I have ever tasted. This is one of my top three favorite blancos. I personally would never use this as a mixer. It's also one of the 'sweeter' blancos I have tasted.
Aroma: Hints of pine (I've not detected this in other tequilas) as well and citrus.
Initial Taste: An oily mouth feel, on tip of tongue its initial taste is a sweet citrus.
Body: Turns to very agave, with floral and fruity tones.
Finish: Of medium duration, with no bitterness with no alcohol burn.
El Tesoro Platinum, begins with unsurpassed clarity and a very-long nose. It is difficult not to smell the green olive juice. The olives themselves have a sweeter smell that what I pick up in the tequila. The Blue Agave smell is next on the list followed by slight hints of citrus, black pepper, and finally juniper. All in all a very vegetal nose.
The initial taste is very intense and hits you quickly with a strong green olive and blue agave flavor, a light body and a very long finish that seems to linger for a while.
Great tasty sipping tequila. I take it straight but if that's too much try it on the rocks.
A good brand, but this one really doesn't do it for me. The other reviews are spot on.
Aroma: Earthy and the olive smell is there. I do not care for green olives. It really spoils the agave for me.
Initial taste: Agave is stronger here, but the green olive is still present.
Body: Nice body and a smooth drink.
Finish: A nice burn and it's smooth going down. The lingering flavor is OK.
El Tesoro is a great brand and a very nice bottle. This particular tequila just isn't my cup of tea. If you like earthy tequilas and green olives, this is a great one for you. The price is a good one for a tequila of this caliber.
