Antigua Cruz Tequila Silver
Blancos
Submitted by El Jefe     April 10, 2008    
Antigua Cruz Tequila Silver, NOM 1406. Crystal clear in color with high, almost oily appearing legs. This tequila has a light, agave nose with some traces of alcohol & a wonderfully sweet, almost cloying, initial taste. In fact it's the sweetest blancos I've ever tasted. The nice agave balance is accompanied by samplings of cardamon, citrus, pepper, & a hint of ginger. These tastes & sweetness carry into this light medium body spirit, leaving as quickly as it came, ending in a rather disappointing finish. However it was a smooth & mellow experience, being some consolation for such an abrupt departure. If you can find this uncommon tequila, it is a good buy especially when Margarita's are top priority. B/B+
