This tequila alternates between bad and good. I'm not quite sure what to do with it.

Aroma: There's only faint agave, a good amount of citrus and something chemically smelling that I can't quite put my finger on.
Initial Taste: Pleasant sweet agave and citrus. Very light tasting initially.
Body: Thin body. Agave is taken over by the oak and spice with a hint of alcohol.
Finish: Smokey finish of medium length with a little alcohol burn.

It's a great looking bottle, but at the price point ($45-50) there's a lot more out there. It would probably be great for a premium mixer and it's fine as a sipper. It's just not a great value when compared to its peers.

Nose was slightly powdery with hint of wet dog, but initial taste was peppery, thin body, faint citrus, no burn, with long soft finish. Pleasant sipper for newbies, and okay value. Presentation is fabulous in that blue bottle.
