El Tesoro
Blanco Tequila

Category: Blanco Tequila

Date Tasted:
Country: Mexico
Alcohol: 40%
Clear color. Creamy aromas and flavors of dried garden herbs on grilled prickly pear cactus, grilled poblano pepper, red fruits, and lemon pepper with a velvety, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity light body and a warming, rapid finish evoking accents of cinnamon candy, green papaya, black pepper on pineapple, and cherry bark. A deliciously green vegetable, pepper, and herb forward sipper that shows off the quality of the agave and will make a killer Margarita.

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.
