El Zarco Silver Tequila
Tequila Mixto Blanco
El Zarco // Jalisco, Mexico
El Zarco is a modern tequila that's mostly recognized for its packaging in a handpainted bottle, and its relatively low price. This mixto tequila goes through a double-distillation, with the blanco bottled unaged.
Tequila Mixto BlancoDistilled from at least 51% blue Weber agave, the remaining 49% can be sugars (usually cane sugar). This category is unaged and clear.
"Tastes like cooked agave mixed with spearmint. Some vanilla and papaya start to kick in. However, it's hard to get past the strange, gas station/junkyard funk to it. The finish goes hot and seems a bit off. Suppose you could mask the heck out of it in a cocktail, which is probably the only way you'd want to sip it."
