Review Detail

 
Milagro Tequila Silver Select Barrel Reserve
Blancos
Submitted by Tequila.net     September 23, 2007    
Aroma: Citrus and agave, along with an apparent sweetness. A sharp smell.

Initial taste: Pleasing at first, but the longer it stays in your mouth, the less enjoyable it becomes.

Body: It tastes somewhat "off". It seems to be missing the pepper and agave notes that are so common among blancos. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but if I'm going to be surprised, I want it to be a good surprise.

Finish: A prominent burn from the alcohol along with some nice lingering smoothness.

This is a good tequila that I won't have trouble enjoying. However, for around $45 for a 750ml bottle, I expected a little more. It's presentation (the bottle comes in a box and has a glass agave plant on the inside of the bottle) is great, but the liquid inside failed to meet the standard set by the presentation.
