Clear color. Herbal, green aromas and flavors of olive tapenade, herbed cheese rind, roasted yellow pepper, and coconut meat with a silky, bright, dryish light-to-medium body and a seamless, delightful, long finish evoking accents of pureed sweet potato, leather, creamy nougat, and peppered green apple finish. A stylish blanco with nice complexity and balance.

Silver or Blanco/White Tequilas are clear, with little (no more than 60 days in stainless steel tanks) or no aging. They can be either 100% agave or mixto. Silver Tequilas are used primarily for mixing and blend particularly well into fruit-based drinks.
