Clear color. Smoky aromas of charcoal briquettes, limestone, smoked peppers, and onion jam with a silky, crisp, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, intriguing, medium-length sweet potato, barley tea, and tea with cream finish. A toasty, smoky tequila that will be a great match with grapefruit in a paloma.

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.
