Campeón Tequila Silver

Campeón Tequila Silver is 100% pure Blue Agave, distilled to proof, and never diluting the full flavors or product quality.

Campeón Tequila insists on using exclusively "Blue Agave de superior" from the uppermost regions in The Highlands of Jalisco. When you look closely at our Tequilas, our aged products are lighter color than what you may be used to in other Añejo and Reposado tequila. We don’t believe in using overly charred barrels which impart their own flavor, easily masking a high quality, or flawed product. You’ll see our light straw color which comes not from the barrel but from caramelizing the Blue Agave. Our barrel aging softens and adds depth and layers, but you’ll never see our product’s exceptional flavor masked by woody barrel overtones. You will taste the thick, aged agave juice, aged to perfection.

My first try of anything from the Campeon line. I've always liked the bottles and heard some solid things, but it's kind of hard to find or the price is always higher than it seems it should be. I finally found the perfect storm of store and price and now I have this lovely tequila sitting in front of me.

Aroma: Lots of agave with a hint of earth. A sweet smelling aroma.
Initial Taste: Tons of agave, a hint of extra sweetness, earth and light pepper.
Body: Wonderful pepper notes in the body. It's a nice and oily tequila so it coats your mouth nicely. Light hints of citrus and earth compliment the overall flavor nicely.
Finish: A nice, medium-long finish with a nice agave kick and a spice. It's what you would expect out of a quality blanco.

The only regret I have with this tequila is that it took me this long to try it. It's a really good blanco. It has some nice intricacies to differentiate, but it doesn't try to do too much. This is a really quality juice.
