Zapopan 100% agave at TJs. Anyone tried it?

So, I'm in Trader Joe's at lunch today and there's a new kid on their tequila block. Zapopan, 100% agave blanco and reposado, both for... $10/bottle. Gotta be the best value (read: Cheapest) 100% agave I've ever seen. First inclination is "nah, if it's too good to be true, it is." Second is "TJs has some fabulous deals on odd label spirits."

Went with the first thought and passed, but I'll probably pick some up one of these trips just to see how it stacks up. Anyone heard of Zapopan? Or, more to the point, anyone tired it? All I come up with is a city in Jalisco called Zapopan, but it would be typical of TJ to put their own label on something.

And, while I'm picking your brains here: What,; if any is the difference between 100% Agave and 100% Blue Agave? Is tequila made from other agave species? If so, how does it affect the product?
