Tequila 1921 Blanco
Los Altos, Jalisco, Mexico
Tequila 1921 is produced from agave grown in the Jalisco highlands, which captures the most sunlight of all the micro regions of tequila. The blanco is now distilled twice in stainless-steel stills with copper coils and bottled fresh off the still. Note: this review is for the newest releases of the product under the NOM 1535 (previous it was 1079), produced at Destileria Morales.
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.
"Since the change in process and distilleries, the blanco has lost some of its spice, but the wild vegetal flavors are still present. There is a fresh grassiness and warm vanilla notes. The finish has suffered somewhat, as it had been creamier and rounder, and now tastes lighter, more citrusy and herbal."
