Antigua Cruz Tequila Silver
Blancos
Submitted by El Jefe     April 10, 2008    
I picked up a bottle of Antigua Cruz Silver today. I bought it because I was curious to see such an inexpensive 100% blue agave tequila ($16 for 750ml.) I've had good luck with the value/quality of the Espolon product. The Antigua Cruz was a few dollars less and the presentation is very good for an inexpensive 100% blue agave. The appearance of the packaging (box and bottle) are very good, the tequila is decent, but not as good as I hoped. The taste as a bit of harshness to it, unlike other 100% agave tequilas that I've tasted. It seems to need to be distilled further. I'd put it on par with a good mixto tequila, and at the price it's sold for it's at about the same price, so it's a decent value.
