Clean, soft, and overall delicious. Tremendous value. A little bit different - in a good way. Enjoyed very much.

Very disappointing tequila. The flavor was sharp, not smooth at all. I expected much, much more from this premium-priced tequila, and everyone I've shared it with has agreed that this is not worthy of the high price, nor the very high reviews it has received. Avoid this one.

NOSE
Quite smooth, creamy & soothing. An instant impression of quality & something 'new world' & modern. Strong agave notes, vanilla, oak, spearmint & touch of earthiness & spice. Overall quite clean & mature.

PALATE
Semi-sweet agave, vanilla, wintergreen & intense spice. Quite rich with a nice density & assertiveness. The spice level builds with time on the tongue - black pepper, almost like cinnamon & black licorice. The overall sweetness level is fairly pronounced yet never overdone. Some heat but easily within check.

BODY
Nicely oily & mouth coating.

FINISH.
Vanilla, mint & spice remain -but becomes almost instantly dry, earthy & salty. Reasonably long.

NOTES
A well designed & crafted spirit. Supposedly a blend of repo, anejo & extra anejo - the extra age/maturity shines through. The oak influence is apparent yet subtle, coming through mostly in the finish. I dig the vanilla & anise flavors throughout & the mouth feel is spot on. In a perfect world the sweetness level would be a tad lower (10%?). Reasonably priced to boot.

Opens with a touch of water - less heat, more earthiness, more salt, more bitterness & seemingly more assertive spice.

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.
