Casa Dragones Tequila Blanco
Casa Dragones // Mexico
Casa Dragones Tequila Blanco is 100% Blue Agave manufactured in a thoroughly modern method. Instead of the traditional method of roasting and crushing the agave to extract the juices and sugars they send the raw agave to a diffusor which extracts the starches from the shredded raw agave by hot water. It is distilled multiple times in a column-still. It is then filtered through an "ultra-modern" filtration system.
Tequila BlancoDistilled from 100% blue Weber agave, it is typically unaged , clear, and bottled straight after distillation. Sometimes rested in stainless steel up to 60 days and can also be aged in wood for no more than 30 days.
"The aroma shows a sweet and herbaceous note, particularly mint and something akin to tree bark. The sweetness continues on the palate initially before ending in a slightly bitter and musky finish. The tequila is fairly neutral otherwise and would appeal to those just getting into the category."
