Tequila Silver

Category: Blanco Tequila

Date Tasted:
Country: Mexico
Alcohol: 40%
Brilliant slivery straw color. Savory aromas and flavors of menudo soup, chipotle peppers, chihuahua cheese, with white pepper, and lime zest with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity light body and a smooth, complex, long smoky collard greens and glazed yams finish. A savory, zesty blanco with hints of smoke that will make for a terrifically complex margarita and a superb sipping tequila.

Blanco Tequila

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.
