Arsenal Tequila Blanco

Arsenal Tequila Blanco is 100% Agave, and is bottled directly after distillation.

Tequila Arsenal is the pride of a family with a true tradition in the art of producing Tequila, who, through hard work and experience, was able to effectively distill, in a bottle, the essence of one of the most widely valued spirits in the world. Tequila Arsenal 100% Agave is thus the living proof that high quality, efficiency and experience can also be affordable.

Tequila Arsenal is produced by Autentica Tequilera in its own distillery, "La Autentica", which was founded in 2003. Since then it has continued a strict process for the selection of the highest quality Agave, and has followed traditional styles of hand-crafted production. As a result of this "La Autentica" has not only found a place amongst the most prestigious in the magical town of Tequila, where 70% of this spirit is produced, but has also acquired international prestige through its premium Tequilas, which have received certifications, awards and recognition beyond our borders. Tequila Arsenal has thus received honors only few others have been awarded.

Whichever way you prefer it, Blanco or Reposado, straight or mixed, you will be able to taste the rich Agave notes that characterize it. Tequila Arsenal has been prepared with great dignity to satisfy the most discerning palates.

The entire Arsenal Tequila brand is new to me. I'd been in search of it for a long time because I have a friend that is a big fan of the Arsenal Football team in London, but could never find a place that would ship so that I could buy a tequila gift that he can drink during those stressful matches.

Arsenal hails from NOM 1502 which makes some nice, albeit lesser known, brands like PaQui and Tierras. One day a store that would ship to me came up with it on close out at $9.99. If you read the blog, you know that there's nothing that I like more than a tasty bargain. It hit the latter portion of that, let's see if it can do the former as well...

Price: $25-30/bottle

Aroma: Musty agave with some vegetal notes.

Initial Taste: A nice clean sweetness of cooked agave with light grass and pepper.

Body: Medium oily body. The mouth feel is pretty average. The green notes and pepper come more forward than the original sweetness. Nice balance overall.

Finish: A fairly short finish without a big agave punch, but it finishes easy and has the same pleasant balance that was present throughout the drink.

In all honesty, this would be a fine purchase at $25. The fact that it was only $10 makes me wish that I had bought more. The profile is easy, but pleasant and would work well in a cocktail without the flavor profile overpowering the other ingredients. The bottle is basic, but has some unique touches. If this option pops up as a bargain for you, I'd recommend picking up a bottle. Tasty + cheap = winner.
