Tasted out of a double ball glass. I was eager to try this one. The whole visual of it (clear in color and being a 'reposado') really had me intrigued. I can't say I was 'wowed', but I was very pleased. Even though all the aromas and tastes were more subtle than I anticipated, it's still a good tequila, even if it doesn't seem like one. I think it makes a very good sipper. I wouldn't mix this one.

Like I said, all the aromas and tastes were more subtle than any other tequila I've tasted:

Aroma: An aroma of pine, earth, slight smoke and earth.
Initial Taste: A soft entry, a thin mouth feel with no bitterness. An initial taste of herbs.
Body: A 'creamy' agave body, with compliments of earth, and slight vanilla.
FInish: A nice slightly heated finish with a lingering of earth cinnamon.

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.
