Middle of the road price...middle of the road tequila. Mi Tierra seems to epitomize that. They're a good base tequila, but lack a certain imagination that would make it stick out from the very crowded word of tequila.

Aroma: Earthy agave with a hint of wet clay.
Initial Taste: Earthy agave entry. Nothing more.
Body: Medium-light body, slightly oily. The flavor is agave and earth. There's a light white pepper spice to compliment the agave, but nothing special.
Finish: Medium finish with light agave and pepper flavors on the finish. It's light and pleasant, but nothing memorable.

This is the decent tequila. In the $30 range, it's not a bad value, but in my opinion there are better tequilas to be bad for less money. The bottle looks great and the flavor would seem to make this a versatile spirit. Solid...but not spectacular.

Purchased from Hi Time for $31.99. Tasted out of a snifter. For some reason, the tequilas from the Amatitan region never quite make me want more. I don't think they are bad at all, they just leave me wanting more. This blanco was a nice middle of the road blanco. Not harsh, not mild. I'd say a decent blanco for those delving into the blanco world. As far as presentation is concerned, a very nice bottle with a decent cork stopper. A solid 'B' tequila in my book.

Aroma: A nose consisting of agave, earth, and grass.
Initial Taste: Upon entry, it's slightly sweet, with no bitterness. First taste I detected was a a sweet agave.
Body: A simply body consisting of agave and earth. Nothing complex here.
Finish: A very unheated finish of medium duration, with a lingering agave taste.

Like I said, not a bad tequila at all, just nothing special to report.
