Cristalino Tequila

Category: Cristalino Tequila

Date Tasted:
Country: Mexico
Alcohol: 40%
Clear color. Candied aromas and flavors of strawberry shortcake with whipped cream, butter pecan ice cream, sour cherry compote, and almond cookie with lemon curd with a lightly tannic, crisp, fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, engaging, medium-long finish imparting notes of fruit cake with candied citrus, roasted sweet potatoes and green peppers, dusty minerals, and pepper dust finish. A rich, candied, and somewhat rum-like cristalino tequila with an earthy center and nice barrel character; will be good for character-rich cocktails.

Cristalino tequilas are barrel-aged tequilas, usually añejos, that have been stripped of color. They tend to have rounder, more creamy aromas and flavors than blancos and also softer acidity and agave notes. They are designed for sipping.
