Blanco Tequila

Category: Blanco Tequila

Date Tasted:
Country: Mexico
Alcohol: 40%
Clear color. Fatty, cheesy, sweet, tropical aromas and flavors of melted butter, meaty notes, green pepper, aloe, white cheese, and banana and mango with a sweet light-to-medium body and a warming, captivating, medium-length finish that exhibits accents of turmeric, salted whipped cream, stuffed pepper, and aloe. Nice little spicy kick at the end of an otherwise very gentle and unintrusive Tequila; will add just enough character to a cocktail with out being overpowering.

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.
