Review Detail

 
Reserva de los Gonzalez Tequila Blanco
Blancos
Submitted by Tequila.net     September 24, 2007    
Weighing in at 38% alcohol, it is very light in the Reidel glass. Legs hardly form at all - it just sort of slides back down into the glass. Aroma is fresh agave, a floral note and a sniff of alcohol. With a slightly sweet entry, it is decidedly thin in the mouth, with strong flavours of agave and mint. There is no noticeable flavour development in the body, and no other aromas are apparent. Finishes very quickly with a moderate alcohol burn and that persistent mintiness. Overall, it is a disappointing blanco, considering the family's long history in Los Altos and the magnificent distillery which produced it.
