Cava de Oro Tequila Silver
Blancos
Submitted by Tequila.net     June 27, 2007    
Tasted 09/23/08 out of double ball glass. Cava De Oro was a very pleasant surprise for me. At $27 for a bottle, I didn't know what to expect, but I took the recommendation of the liquor store clerk and boy did he come through! A very subtle yet unique aroma. A smooth tasting experience throughout, and a handmade bottle that screams 'Mexico!'. This tequila brought back memories of visiting the town of Tequila. A GREAT blanco for new tequila drinkers.

Aroma: A citrus nose with very vanilla notes.
Initial Taste: An oily moth feel, upon entry, it was sweet, but not too sweet, with no bitterness.
Body: A subtle yet present body of agave, earth, and pear. Nice combination.
Finish: Sadly, a short semi heated finish.
