Review Detail

 
Republic Tequila Plata
Blancos
Submitted by Tequila.net     August 31, 2009    
Awesome bottle...and the reviews told me that I had to buy it.

Aroma: Light agave scent...lots of earth and grassy notes.
Initial Taste: Sweet initial taste on the tip of the tongue is quickly overtaken with an earthy and minty flavor.
Body: Thin body that is very smooth with only a nice pleasant heat. The grassy and citrus notes are stronger than the agave and they didn't mix all that well on my palate. It's almost a bit bitter with the mint.
Finish: A very smooth finish that was very enjoyable (green olive). I wish the flavor was more my taste because even though it's wasn't I can tell that it was well crafted...it just wasn't my cup of tea. I don't like green olives. If you're a fan of El Tesoro Blanco you'd probably really like this tequila.

This is a great bottle and comes from a great distillery. I wish that I liked it more, but I just didn't. It's well priced in the $35 range. I have friends and family that will like it so it'll have no problem disappearing. It just won't be into my belly.
