Tequila Amate Silver

Amate Silver - Bottled immediately after an intricate distillation and purification process for an unmistakably pure crisp taste.

Tequila Amate is one of the highest caliber, made from 100% pure Blue Agaves. That's how ultra-premium Amate delivers the smooth balanced, authentic flavor in all three of its award winning varieties.

Previously produced at NOM 1137, Amate changed to NOM 1173 in 2012.

See the first generation bottle in the photo under the main image, first released in 1998.

Now available at the LCBO in Ontario! Paid 49.95 for this baby which is high for USA but pretty standard here in Canada. Tasted in a mini snifter Nose: This tequila starts off with a very vegital nose, if you like vegetal this nose will blow you away. Some very mild mineral notes in the back. Taste:Like said above this tequila is very smooth... almost too smooth. But for some this would be a good thing, I would say this would be a good tequila for the newbie blanco drinker. Finish: Finish is very subtle with a pleasent short tingle on the tip of your tounge. In summary I would recommend this tequila to someone new to tequila looking for a smooth easy to drink tipple. Would make a good mixer that wouldn't overpower the cocktail.

This tequila was very smooth but not at all flavorful. It would most likely make a very good margarita because it is so clean and fresh tasting but as a sipper it was a bit too shallow in flavor.

I liked the package as the blue bottle was set out very well against all if the hand blown bottles we see these days.

It would make a nice gift as the package is beautiful and the tequila will not offend.

I hate to criticize anything that someone takes pride in making. But do you remember the saying 'Wheres the beef?' Well, this tequila reminded me of 'Wheres the agave?'

The initial taste was nothing but a mild alcohol sensation.

The body and initial taste were nothing more than a subtle hint of flat agave.

The finish: what finish.

Im just praying it was a bad bottle.
