Clase Azul Tequila Plata

Clase Azul Tequila Plata is produced from organic Agave that have matured for at least nine years, we slow cook the Agave piñas in traditional ovens, and ferment using the company’s secret combination of yeasts. A careful distillation is done to ensure the highest quality possible, using water refined in a five steps process and triple tequila filtration to ensure superior quality.

Clase Azul is bottled in unique decanters that are hand-made by artisians in local communities. Its exceptional smoothness makes it ideal for sipping and creates a sublime sensory experience rivaling the finest tequilas ever produced.

Purchased a bottle of this platino nectar in Puerto Vallarta for around $65 USD.
I call this blanco "nectar" because it is, in my experience, one of the sweeter blancos I have had the plreasure of tasting. Clase Azul Plata was made for sipping.
On the nose you'll find tropical fruits & honey accompanied by a very subtle essence of pepper. This tequila is incredibly smooth and savory, I often jokingly refer to it as a "dessert tequila" in that it makes a perfect sweet treat after a meal or just a long day. Clase Azul Plata appears syrupy, exhibiting slow tears, but has a medium body.
The bottle alone is also impressive to both tequila veterans and newcomers alike, though it is rather cumbersome. You may notice I gave the finish 100 because it was without a doubt one of the sweetest/smoothest finishes I have yet to come by in a quality blanco. Truly impressive and reasonably priced given it's overall bottle/content quality.
:One word of warning: ...those who enjoy blancos for their intensity, purity and "afterburn" or just plain like shooting blancos will likely find this one lacking in fire/kick. Leave it for someone else if you don't intend to sip it.

A great blanco cousin to one of my very favorite reposados.

Aroma: Sweet agave and some vanilla and citrus fruit.
Initial taste: Extremely sweet and almost fruity entry. Gives you exactly what your nose tells you it should.
Body: Medium body. Agave taste continues throughout and complimentary flavors of fruit and light spice give it a nice overall flavor.
Finish: A bit short and no alcohol burn.

The bottle is great. Clase Azul has about as good of presentation that is out there. The price is high at around $70 a bottle, but the juice merits a premium price. Highly recommended.
