Pura Vida Tequila Silver
Blancos
Submitted by Tequila.net     November 08, 2011    
Pura Vida is another line out of NOM 1414 (probably my favorite). Another celebrity tequila (Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top). I very much enjoyed the anejo and at the price point, I knew that I would buy the other two as well.

Aroma: Agave, grassy notes, citrus fruit and a hint of mint.
Initial Taste: Sweet agave with vegetal notes that are a bit like cooking spices (thyme).
Body: Triple distillation gives it a bit of a thin mouth feel, but it still oily enough to impart a nice mix of flavors that include agave, pepper, spices and mint.
Finish: A medium finish with just a hint of pepper. Very pleasant finish to a very nice all around blanco.

This tequila wasn't too much like the aged ones. This one has a lot more earthy/grassy/minty flavor to it and it is done exceptionally well. It is smooth the whole way through and is complex with flavors that work well together. For the $30 range, this is a near must have blanco. The blue tear drop bottles with a heavy metal stopper are a nice touch as well.
