"In the glass, there is an aggressively alcoholic punch, with a hint of pepper and a whiff of petrol. In the mouth, Sauza Silver manages to be both hot and peppery and convey an artificial-tasting sweetness with no discernible agave flavor. The finish is hot but thankfully brief. Alcohol is the dominant flavor overall, and this tequila is rough and generally unpleasant in its own."
