Antiguo Tequila Blanco

Antiguo de Herradura Tequila Blanco is 100% Blue Agave. Handcrafted since 1924, Antiguo was originally the coveted estate Tequila served to the family and guests of Casa Herradura. Antiguo was launched in Mexico in 1995 to commemorate Casa Herradura's 125th anniversary of producing the world's finest tequilas.

Today, Antiguo continues to captivate those with distinguished taste who appreciate the smooth and mellow character of an exceptional Tequila.

From the Brown-Forman/Herradura monolith, this is my first shot at any Antiguo variety. I'm not the #1 fan of Herradura, but I'm always willing to try something new. There's been plenty of brands that have surprised me over the years. Let's see...

Aroma: A very interesting nose. Agave, earth and a bit of berries (raspberry/blackberry). It's almost like a cross between a tequila and a red wine.
Initial Taste: Smooth agave entry with a hint of earth.
Body: The earthy agave is complimented by the berry fruits to make for a very unique feel and taste on the tongue.
Finish: Medium-short finish, but it has a very nice peppery bite to it. The fruit lingers around nicely as well with just a hint of earthy bitternes. I wish it lasted a bit longer.

They did a really nice job with this blanco. In all honesty, my expectations were low and I was nicely surprised. I'll be sipping this one for sure, but I think it would make an outstanding mixer if you were so inclined. The presentation is blah, but the juice inside is very good. Well done Antiguo!

This blanco is not quite there yet. Even though it is a well known tequila, the quality and taste is not good enough. Nice aroma some balance. Not to much body. A bit strong. Maybe it could be better if mixed but not so enjoyable out in a sniffer.

Tasted out of a snifter at home. This blanco was good, but not great. The best part to me was the aroma. THe rest of the tasting lacked depth. I did a tasting twice to make sure I was correct. Still, for $24 bux its a step above some $15 dollar blancos. Yet for $24 bux, it should be better than some $15 dollar blancos. Especially from this distillery.

There is no bitterness throughout and the initial taste was sweet. But the finish was weak and it leaves me wanting a better blanco.
