Silver-gray colour and moderate viscosity. Deep rich agave, herbal and mineral nose with little alcohol presence. Initially sweet strong agave - traces of spice and mint in a full and luscious body. Finishes with a mild bitterness, strong agave and a long minty aftertaste. Classy, refreshing and unpretentious, this is a very fine artesanal blanco.
I had an opportunity to compare side-by-side the Mexican product against its American export version. The Mexican blanco has deeper herbals in the nose - is sharper and slightly more acidic but a tastier presentation overall. The export product offers softer, milder characteristics. These differences could be attributed to different lots, but my clear preference is the Mexican.
The creator of this tequila is rumored to be the same Master Distiller as the original Patron tequila. When Patron was bought, and moved to the states, the master distiller stayed behind, and opened this distillery
Very good, solid Blanco. Love the smooth finish... Top 5 on my list.
