    Sadly, I am one to judge a book by its cover when it comes to food and beverage. We consume with our eyes before any of our other senses can join the party (with the exception of maybe the aroma). While I don’t let that judgment affect my impressions from the senses that really matter, this tequila did fall short (pun intended) on the shelf. What it lacks in looks, it makes up for in quality. On the nose, this tequila screams lowland agave: Rocky minerals, iron, and beach sand after a retreating wave are first on the scene, followed immediately by a banana biscuit with a slight hint of vanilla and key lime. On the palate I get a soft, chewy feel- especially for sitting right at the 80 proof marker. Sweet roasted agave stands up and runs alongside a clean minerality with hints of the banana making yet another appearance. That hot peppery-ness that can end up in some of the lower tiered tequilas is almost nonexistent, making this perfect for a daily sipper or if you want to elevate your cocktails. The finish has a slight sharpness about it, letting you know not to forget it. As the heat dissipates, you’re left with a light vanilla note accenting the cooked blue weber agave. For a sub $30 blanco, this one is hard to beat.

    My new house Blanco! Lovely floral nose, crystaline quality on the palate, great texture, bright, pure, fresh. Can be sipped straight or mixed. Killer value thanks to Andrew's negotiating skills. Great work!

    Montejima opens with a clean, salty and straightforward agave driven profile. On the palate, it feels expensive, with a weighty mouth feel that reminds me of several other more famous labels which go for $40 and up. Level up that 'rita or sipping tequila!

    Only two mistakes were made in the production of this tequila. The first was a terrible bottle choice. Nothing to be done there. The second mistake: it was initially priced too high. We've fixed the second one. This is a screaming deal at half off for some excellent juice. It's the kind of mellow easy drinking tequila you can sip on all night. There is pepper and pineapple on the nose, richness on the palate, and no bite whatsoever to the very smooth finish.

    I was super impressed with this Tequila. There is a lot going on in this Blanco, it has great texture and flavor. The nose is really friendly, with vanilla custard, ripe stone fruit and crushed pink peppercorns. The palate is super smooth and lush. So often Blanco Tequila has too much fire for sipping or shooting on its own. The finish was super mellow and pleasantly fruity. I found it very versatile. Weather you want to throw back some shots with some friends or impress them with some hip new cocktails, this is a great choice.
