Nose: Crisp agave aromas blended withhints of fresh citrus, notes of lemon, lime and grapefruit.
Taste: Light, sweet, agave flavor.
Finish: Clean and dry, complemented by a touch of black pepper.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 94 points - Pungent and fruity. The nose is full of ripe tropical fruit. In the mouth the texture is thick and soft, with lots of salty undertones. A hint of grassiness on the smooth finish. (Mar 2013)
Wine Enthusiast 96 points - This is how blanco Tequila should smell with unadorned, raw, but fetching peppery/dill-like aromas, scents of lanolin, palm oil, sand, minerals and slate. The palate entry is semidry, intensely sap-like and honeyed; at midpalate the taste profile displays a satiny texture and a robust, herbal, mildly salty flavor.

With a fresh agave expression and citrus notes, this tequila is called upon often when concocting innovative cocktails and the ultimate margarita, but is also perfect on its own or on the rocks.
The Don Julio Blanco was given a ‘Classic’ rating in Wine Enthusiast Magazine’s review of the top spirits of 2007. ‘Classic’ is their highest recommendation and was awarded after noted critic Paul Pacult reviewed over 250 spirits.
