Alma de Agave Tequila Blanco

Alma De Agave Silver is tenderly aged for fifty days, maintaining its pure and natural structure and slightly softening its sharp taste to a fruity fresh flavor. The clean aroma and sweet finish can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks or perfectly blended with a citrus margarita.

Alma de Agave Tequila is produced with the finest Blue Weber Agave, cultivated from the shores of Lake Chapala, a region of Mexico known for the quality of its maguey plants, rich in minerals with a unique and distinct character.

By following our old family recipe of slow distillation and filtration, the results are beyond the smoothest tasting tequila. We have also taken it a step further of chilling our tequila to remove any oils and grease derived from distillation, allowing us to protect and hold its taste, color and flavor at any weather or environment.

Alma de Agave is bottled in hand-molded and blown glass by true artisans who hand-craft each individual bottle. It is topped with 100% Caoba wood and natural Corteza tree cork treated with parafina to protect the tequila's color and aromas.

NOM 1509 is a wonderful distillery. They make one of my 3 favorite lines, so I figured at the price Alma was worth a shot.

Aroma: Really agave forward nose with a hint of extra sweetness and grassy notes.
Initial Taste: Strong sweet agave flavor with a bit of fruit and herbs.
Body: Medium body. Very nice mouth feel with agave and pepper spice. A really nice full agave experience with subtle hints of other flavors.
Finish: Nice, long peppery finish. The only bad part of the tequila is just a slight bitterness at the very end of the finish. It certainly doesn't ruin the overall drink, but it takes away from what was otherwise a near perfect blanco experience otherwise.

All in all, for under $30 this is a really good tequila. It's a strong, agave forward blanco with all of the aspects that a drinker should be be looking for in a good blanco. It's smooth the whole way. I'd highly recommend picking this one up for a nice value blanco sipper.

Tasted out of a caballito. Like the anejo of this line, it's very enjoyable and an excellent value. It doesn't make an 'A' grade tequila to me....But like I said, with it's price and today's economy, it's an excellent value.

Aroma: A grassy nose, with slight hint of herbs.
Initial Taste: An ever so slight bitterness upon entry. It's slightly sweet too. Initial taste of fruit.
Body: A very good agave body, complimented by slight fruit.
Finish: A slightly heated finish of short duration with a nice agave lingering.
