I've never been much of a fan of blancos, but this one is delicious! If you have a serious lust for agave, this one will not disappoint. The agave flavor is rich and full, sweet but not cloying. The finish is peppery with a nice zing to it. The smoothness is excellent. The presentation is beautiful. It was a very, very pleasant surprise to taste. I will definitely be stocking this one in my personal bar regularly!

I picked this up seeing it was reasonably priced and how it came in a nice box and the hand waxed top is a very nice touch. I am very impressed. I favor blancos and this really blew me away. No surprises here but what you get is one of the best sipping tequilas you can ask for.The taste of agave is pleasant with an even more pleasant finish.No over peppery or limey flavors to offset the taste and no numbing on the finish.Please try it if you can find some you won't regret it.

I tasted this on 2/29/08 at 7:20pm. I purchased the bottle at a price of 54.99 and tasted out of a riedel glass. The presentation was beautiful in a wooden box and the labeling was nice as well. As for the taste, the initial taste is very solid and a well-noted Agave flavor. I could taste the hints of vanilla in the beginning followed by a very smooth finish without much bite. The overall price vs. quanity is exceptional. I liked this purchase very much.

I was surprised how much i ended up like this blanco. It is by far the best tequila that Jose Cuervo makes.

I found this Blanco to be surprising in the fact that Cuervo is usually associated with cheap tequila and killer hangovers. This super-premium has elevated my view of the brand. Having said that I still found it to be a "middle of the road" super-premium. The nose is not aggressive with a slight alcohol burn but distinct agave notes. The initial taste is fairly smooth but the flavors don't arrive until you reach the body which draws vanilla, citrus, and pepper out. The finish is smooth and pepper with a slight bitterness. I actually wasn't all that impressed with the bottle presentation though. It's a decent tequila but not one that I am completely fired up over.
