Oof, maybe a bad bottle? Don't know but had a blind tasting with 2 blancos, 1942, San Matias, this, JC Generaciones Anejo, and Tres Generaciones anejo with my father, brother, his wife, mother, my gf and myself. We didn't know the bottle order and had opaque glasses so we couldn't see the liquor color. This was universally agreed to be the worst of all, by far. Can't explain it, had very bitter cheap JC taste. Funny thing, the JC generaciones was actually universally rated the best!! Don't know what it was, this just had no depth or aroma. Shame really, had super high hopes. If i see it at a bar I'd definitely give it another shot but until then, not buying another bottle. Packaging is A+, cool a** box.
this is best sipping available. Smooth, flavorful and a treat.
it was great
This tequila is by far my favorite for the various notes and taste it provides. For the price you cannot go wrong.
I was a scotch drinker for years. Then while in Mexico a friend had me try this. It's been all I drink for the last year. Beautiful woody finish with that extra anejo feel. Absolutely the best, hands down!
This is the absolute best sipping tequila; recommended to me by my favorite bartender...I save for special occasions and drink it neat.
Absolutely outstanding tequila and price from Old Town
I have been treating myself to this tequila for over 20 years. I find it my favorite after dinner drink because of it’s unique flavor and smooth to the palate taste. An annual gift from me, to me, for me.
