Tasted at my local Tequila bar, 1.5 oz. room temperature in a mini snifter.

The initial scent smelled more of nail polish remover than agave or anything else. Fortunately the taste did not follow suit. However I thought this to be a weak tequila. There was nothing outstanding taste-wise. Everything was subtle and, quite frankly, it didn't taste like tequila at all.
My friend, who also tasted it, mirrored the other reviewer's observation: "That tastes more like vodka"

Overall I feel this Maestro falls flat. It isn't bad, but it isn't even close to the full flavored style I like. Its also fairly expensive, $70 in Western Massachusetts. I'm glad I tried it, but I won't bother with it again.

I was able to sample this at liquor tasting without having to pay for it. I was eager to try it because the premise sounded good, the blending of the best of reposado and anejo tequilas for a great flavor experience.

I was dissappointed as I expected much more complexity of flavor for the price. The bottle is certainly stunning but the product was smooth, almost vodka like in it's character.

I just expect more flavor out of my tequilas. It was ok, just not what I expected. The filtration must have taken flavor out as it stripped the color from the product. Then again I thought maybe they are going for the light, flavorless idea. I would love to hear what others think.

When I drank this tequila one word usually came to mind: dynamic. Every time I drank it I experienced a new taste. It was great. It was gone in no time though.

This was my first non blanco tequila aside from some mini bottles here and there.

The price on here is perhaps outdated or I just got really lucky when I bought it for $31.99. I would purchase this tequila again and would probably pay upwards of $50.00 if I had to.

Opened the bottle several months ago, just poured a small glass, took a sniff and had a very nice aromatic experience. First whiff was like I was smelling vanilla cake frosting - but not nearly as sweet, and with a nice subtle agave scent too. Also smelled of spices, and hazelnut. Nice long tears.

Entrance is sweet and somewhat light, but it's complexity is obvious shortly thereafter. It is not quite thick, or oily, but a very nice body - vanilla, spices, cinnamon, light smoke, and licorice. Also, a very nice agave presence - not detectable if you drink it down quickly, but it's definitely there.

Smooth finish with a perfect cinnamon/earthy/sweet/agave finish that I thoroughly enjoyed.

The bottle is beautiful and I actually think they do quite a good job of following through with a great product inside. Nicely done and very enjoyable.
