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.
"For a tequila that blends agave from Jalisco's two defining growing regions, one might yearn for a bit more complexity. Mild orange peel and melon aromas introduce, but are followed by a more synthetic, rubbery note. Sweet notes of sherbert open the palate with some pleasant floral characters. A very light finish marked mostly by cane sugar."
