Peligroso Tequila Silver
Peligroso // Highlands, Mexico
Peligroso — Spanish for “danger” — is a Tequila brand started by two surfers and inspired by their many trips to the surf Mecca Baja. Agave is sourced from the Highlands and distilled at NOM 1107 which is a distillery that does not appear often in the American market. It appears that when the brand was launched the silver was bottled at 42% alcohol, but the current version is the standard 40%.
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.
"A very classic and intense nose of sea-salt flake and preserved lime peel immediately leap from a glass of this unaged Tequila. Unfortunately, the palate seems a little discordant with some unattractive earthy notes and a loss of the vibrancy found in the aromatics. The drink finishes with a bit of the citrus character found earlier peaking through and a touch of salty minerality and baking spice. A perfectly acceptable tequila for mixed drinks but ultimately lacks complexity. "
