Peligroso Tequila Silver

Peligroso Tequila Silver, 42% Alcohol Volume, 100% Blue Weber Agave Tequila, grown and harvested on a private estate in the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico.

Peligroso Tequila, which translates to dangerous, stands for everything about Mexico and its coveted spirit, Tequila.

Each Peligroso bottle is corked and numbered by hand, to certify it authenticity. The cork is a unique three-piece design made up of a natural cork stopper, real stained wood top and antiqued coin medallion.

Peligroso is the first brand to offer three separate types of glass to further distinguish the unique character of each type of Tequila. The Silver uses a crystal clear flint glass to reflect the purity of the juice. The Reposado uses a rustic finished glass to give more of an antiqued look to match the golden aged nature of the juice. Lastly, the Anejo is bottled in a sleek and mysterious satin black glass bottle that alludes to the complex layers and undertones of the long aged Tequila.

Peligroso is one of the first brands I reviewed for this blog with the anejo. I'm not sure why it's taken me so long to get back to it, but I am finally sitting down and enjoying some "dangerous time" with the Silver.


Price: $40-45/bottle

Aroma: A big time agave nose a nice compliment of citrus and hint of earth.

Initial Taste: A very nice citrus (lemon) and agave combo on the front of the palate.

Body: A nice oily mouth feel. Agave, earth and citrus combine with a nice peppery punch.

Finish: A lengthy finish with agave pepper and a bit of sizzle.

There's a lot to like about this brand. The presentation is cool, the extra 4 proof makes it a little bit different without it being too hot and the flavors are all around solid. This blanco is clean and crisp with a lot of pure agave flavors. With that said, the price point is steep for a blanco at $40+. I'm kind of 50/50 on this one. I like Peligroso Anejo better and for the price, I think that other blancos are a better value, but if you're interested, I'd definitely say that this one is worth a shot.
