Review Detail

 
Celestial Tequila Silver
Blancos
Submitted by Tequila.net     September 12, 2012    
In a marketplace full of competition, I try to stay updated on most of the new tequilas introduced, but some definitely slip through the cracks. While, I am not at all familiar with the brand, it comes from a good distillery (NOM 1480) that produces good juices like Don Abraham and Puro Verde.

Aroma: Nice cooked agave notes with floral & earthy compliments.
Initial Taste: A very nice agave flavor up front with just a hint of cement/earth notes.
Body: An oily mouth feel…very full. The sweet notes are complimented by a full flavor of peppery goodness. Well rounded.
Finish: A medium-long linger with very strong earthy & peppery notes to go with the lingering agave sweetness.

While this tequila has some lowland type notes and a hint of earthy bitterness, it works really well with the agave sweetness and the peppery notes at the back of the palate. It’s very well rounded and oily. A consummate blanco sipper, but would also work well in a mixed drink. This was a very nice introduction from Celestial Tequila.
