A very basic and easy to find tequila. For people who drink mixtos, this will be a nice revelation. For people who drink a lot of tequilas, this will likely just be a ho hum juice.

Aroma: Not a great agave nose, but the faint agave smell and alcohol is pretty much the only aroma.
Initial Taste: Sweet taste. Agave, not much else. The mellowing of aging makes it more pleasant than the blanco.
Body: A bit of agave and wood. Sits well on the tongue, but not a lot of complexity or strength in the flavors.
Finish: Short finish, a slight alcohol burn. Nothing spectacular, but relatively smooth.

This is a tequila that I wouldn't seek out, but I also would turn down. It's good enough for any tequila aficionado, but with so many quality brands out there, it's not one that I would look for as a top choice either.
