Sauza Hornitos Tequila Plata
Blancos
Submitted by Tequila.net     August 31, 2007    
Very disappointed with this one. I am huge fan of Hornitos Reposado and I will typicallyl recommend it to people new to tequila who are looking for a cheap bottle of 100% agave to keep in their home. Hornitos Reposado is a solid tequila, with an excellent value, while the blanco definitely tastes "cheap". The nose is clean and crisp however the initial taste and body leave you wanting something more, and the finish is downright bitter. Personally, I like to enjoy a good silver on the rocks with a squeeze of lime on a warm spring or summer day. This tequila DEFINITELY is not good for sipping on the rocks. Might be good in a paloma or as a base tequila for margaritas but definitely not recommended for tequila enthusiasts. 1800 Silver and Cazadores Silver are both in the same price range and are much better quality blancos than the Hornitos Silver. I'd advise against this bottle unless it is on sale.
