Tequila Cuestión Blanco

Cuestión Tequila Blanco is an ultra-premium tequila born of all-natural Blue Weber Agave plants grown for up to 10 years in the fields of Jalisco, Mexico. Hand-selected by master jimadorés, each plant is roasted, pressed, fermented and distilled, then hand-bottled to ensure the freshness, clarity and flavor our Tequila Blanco is famous for. With a hint of white pepper and sweet, natural agave, Cuestión Tequila Blanco is best enjoyed neat, on the rocks or as the perfect addition to your favorite margarita or mixed cocktail.

Founded in 2007 by Jose de Jesus Dominguez Figueroa and his partner Jose de Julio Marquez Ochoa. President / CEO of Cuestion Spirits Company, Inc., Jason Fandrich partnered with Jesus and Julio in 2009 to begin the import process and is the exclusive importer / distributor of Cuestion Tequila.

I first saw this brand a few months ago at Pablo's Mexican Cantina, just outside Birmingham, Alabama. Pablos has 30+ tequila selections and after having seen these intriguing "Cuestión" bottles for a while, I decided to finally order a shot of the Blanco. I asked for it chilled so she gave me a HUGE pour, shook it with ice, then poured full into a rocks glass. No salt or lime for me. Initial nose was light and natural but I couldn't really find any floral or citrus notes. It was a bit underwhelming actually, but might be due to being chilled. Taste was light as well but the agave was definitely there and it had just a touch of citrusy sweetness. Reminded me of Patrón up front. The finish was better though; it had a nice lingering flavor, sans burn or bitterness; quite enjoyable. This is a good solid Blanco with a great looking bottle. I plan to add one to my collection. Also plan to try their Reposado and their Añejo.
