Tequila Chamucos Blanco Especial
Chamucos // Jalisco , Mexico
Tequila Chamucos was started by three friends - a movie director, a caricaturist, and an entrepreneur - who first sourced the tequila for their own private consumption. Now released to the public, this 100% agave tequila is produced in Jalisco Alto. The blanco is made from agave harvested at 8 to 10 years, with piñas steamed in an autoclave and distilled in stainless-steel column-stills. It is bottled unaged fresh off the still. Fun fact: If found in the original box, there are cut-outs that fold into three-dimensional figures.

"This is a fairly straightforward tequila with freshly roasted agave flavors, raw bell peppers, and a touch of jalapeño heat. Some grassiness and grapefruit peel enter the fold, flowing into an earthy finish. Though it's not a terribly interesting sipper, there's some good body here and it would be stand up well in cocktails. "
