GSN Review: Mi CAMPO Tequila

Mi CAMPO is a recent entry to the popular  mid-tier tequila offering. This is a market which has started to see strong contenders these past couple of years and Mi CAMPO has entered the fight without turning a blind eye to this fact. Ten years ago you’d be hard pressed to find anything respectable at this tier but these days there are some decent contenders and Mi CAMPO is pulling in strong to this market.

Mi CAMPO Blanco
Visual: Clear.
Nose: A surprisingly sweet and pronounced bouquet somewhat reminiscent of vanilla caramel.
Taste: Sweet vanilla, mild pepper; and despite the strong sweet bouquet, the taste is mildly sweet.
Finish: A hint of anise & herbal finish.
Summary: If you want a blanco that’s delightful to smell and easy to drink, this is one of the best bangs for the buck on the market. I would recommend this as an easy entry into blancos.
GSN Rating: B+

Mi CAMPO Reposado
Visual: Clear with a faint golden amber hue.
Nose: A hint of vanilla and pepper, with no sweet tones like the blanco.
Taste: A more pronounced vanilla tone with a hotter pepper taste.
Finish: A warm pepper taste.
Summary: A more standard reposado that traditionalists will prefer, offering a good bang for the buck.
GSN Rating: B
