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%.

Tasting Notes

"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. "
