Not so long ago, Casamigos entered the market with the brand statement of making ’the best-tasting, smoothest tequila.’
After a decade, the brand is taking the limelight in the tequila industry. But is it just a marketing trick because it’s related to Hollywood actor George Clooney?
Or is Casamigos tequila really worth it?
Let’s discover what’s so remarkable about this tequila and if it’s really worth trying. Here’s our first-hand Casamigos tequila review.
Casamigos Tequila: Is It Worth It?
Yes, Casamigos tequila is worth it. It is considered one of the best-selling tequilas in the US and one of the finest tequila to drink at its price point.
This tequila brand is competitive in creating the smoothest, most manageable tequila to drink and sip neatly without having hangovers. 
It won’t crash your palate, making it a perfect entry-level bottle to start if you’re new to tequila.
You can try blanco, reposado, and añejo any time of the day and drink them however you wish because they are palatable enough to quench your tequila thirst.

Casamigos Tequila Tasting Notes
Casamigos Blanco tequila delivers bright citrus notes and a clean, uncomplicated, and creamy mouthfeel with sweet agave vanilla-forward notes without alcohol burn.
Meanwhile, Casamigos anejo tequila has a smooth and gentle mouthfeel with a rich butterscotch taste. We also noticed subtle hints of wood and chocolate.
Furthermore, Casamigos Reposado is a medium-bodied spirit that stays on the tongue. We noticed a blend of fruit, caramel, grass, and oak spice notes.
Casamigos Blanco’s vanilla is notable on the nose, while Casamigos Añejo has a sweet tequila aroma, and Casamigos Reposado has a noticeable oak-forward hint and tropical fruit and agave sweetness.
Overall, we noticed that Casamigos tequila has subtle to strong hints of vanilla on the nose.
“We wanted everyone to be able to drink it (Casamigos) and not be exclusive.”– Rande Gerber, Casamigos Co-Founder
Casamigos Blanco tequila has a long, pleasantly warm, and rich finish with lingering vanilla hints and light mint notes.
Meanwhile, Casamigos Anejo has a short to medium finish and a pleasant warmth with slight smoke and bitterness.
The Casamigos Reposado lacks the finish we originally wanted, just short to medium, but we like how it’s smooth with some oak, white pepper spice, and tobacco hints.
Casamigos Blanco tequila is sweet, fruity, and smooth on our first sip. It is approachable with a creamy, velvety texture.
On the other hand, Casamigos Anejo surprised us with its smooth mouthfeel and vanilla sweetness on our first sip. Because it doesn’t have a lingering burn, we recommend this bottle to newbies.
Casamigos Reposado has a delicious aroma of sweet vanilla, agave, and oaky hints. We like how it’s well-rounded and savory.
Casamigos Blanco on ice took us by surprise on our second glass. We tasted a mix of mint, citrus, and creamy vanilla notes. We actually like this spirit on ice.
Since Casamigos Añejo is aged longer than the Blanco and Reposado, it somehow gave us the impression that it’s like an aged whiskey.
We feel like this bottle has a more complex flavor, probably because it uses bourbon oak barrels.
Why We Like It
- Casamigos tequila is an uncomplicated tequila with no harsh notes. It is light on the palate yet has savory notes.
- It is easy to sip, approachable, and an excellent entry-level for those new to tequila.
- This tequila is versatile. You can drink it neat, on ice, or mix it in cocktails.
- This tequila has a light palate and is a little expensive for cocktails.
- Its finish is a little dry and lacks lemon, citrus, and herbal flavors.
Casamigos Tequila Rating
We give 3 stars for Casamigos Blanco because of its undeniably sweet and smooth palate. This bottle can be an everyday sipping tequila.
Our team gives this bottle 4 stars because it is smooth and perfect for special occasions. However, it is slightly expensive.
Our team also gives Casamigos Reposado a 4-star rating because of its premium quality, perfect for special occasions.
Like the anejo, it is also slightly expensive, so we don’t recommend this bottle for mixing cocktails.
Is Casamigos tequila as good as Don Julio?
Yes, Casamigos tequila is as good as Don Julio and can be Don Julio’s good bottle alternative.
Why does Casamigos tequila taste like vanilla?
Casamigos tequila doesn’t disclose additives, but its vanilla notes might be due to the blue agave plant  used in the tequila.
Casamigos tequila stands out because of its signature vanilla and sweet agave notes, making it one of the top selections for a sipping tequila.
Typically, celebrity-endorsed liquors tend to be just hype.
But not with Casamigos tequila—this brand is pretty good. The flavors are light but with a solid punch.
