I've been curious about this Kirkland tequila from Costco for a while. While Costco tends to make quality products, I've never tried any of their liquor, and I had some doubts. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised! It's a very nice, smooth, 100% agave silver tequila - and it's inexpensive to boot!

I tend to use tequila for making margaritas, and this is perfect! It's not bad straight either. The negatives are nit-picky for a tequila this good and inexpensive - the body is fairly thin, and the presentation is very basic. Given the cost, I really don't mind the presentation - I've paid a lot more for tequila in a fancy bottle that wasn't as good as this.

Purchased at Costco and tasted on 10/16/12 using a Riedel glass. It's one of 22 brands produced by the distiller Fabrica de Tequilas Finos. Their other recognizable brands include Kah, Dos Manos, Tres Manos, and Zapopan. Kirkland Signature is the store brand for Costco. A 1.75l bottles goes for $19.99 in Roseville, CA.

I found it has the basic agave taste and smell, with some citrus, but is a little alcoholy tasting with a slow burn finish. I would not ordinarily use this tequila for sipping only because there's too many better alternatives. I generally sip anejos and many reposados, but not many blancos. That said, this blanco makes a very good margarita for a marvelous price.

There is nothing particularly compelling about the presentation or bottle. It's indistinctive and yells out, "I'm a generic store brand." However, when you finish the bottle, which brings you much enjoyment, who cares how pretty the bottle is. I toss it out. This is a working class staple and a very good value for the money. I will buy it again frequently for general use (not when trying to impress guests).

Who doesn't love Costco? This tequila is just another reason to love it more.

Aroma: Basic agave and citrus fruit.
Intial taste: Sweet cooked agave entry with fruit and light spice and grass.
Body: Fairly thin, no bitterness. A nice, light pleasant flavor.
Finish: Not much to it. Very little burn, but no notable flavors on the palate either. A nice agave flavor throughout and no real burn or linger at the end.

While this tequila won't change your life, it's actually good enough to be sipped. It also makes a very nice margarita. It's an all-purpose, pretty good 100% agave tequila for $18.99 for a 1.75L. You flat out can't beat that.
