Don Cosme Tequila Blanco

Don Cosme Tequila Blanco is 100% Blue Agave from Amatitán, Jalisco. Don Cosme Agaves are slow cooked in brick ovens for 48 hours, the juices are then extracted using a traditional tahona.

Since 1907, Tequila Don Cosme's exquisite 100% Agave Tequila recipe has been passed down from generation to generation. Don Cosme maintains a traditional process delivering quality and prestige, and is a 100% Mexican company that focuses on satisfying the most demanding of palates.

Another interesting budget friendly tequila. Their website is only in Spanish, which I like. It makes me feel like I'm drinking like the Mexicans. I tend to like tequilas from the Amatitan region of Jalisco and for the mere price of a portrait of Andrew Jackson this can be yours.

Aroma: Fruity agave. The fruit is some citrus and some berries. Very inviting.
Initial Taste: Smooth entry. Light agave and fruit. A fairly unique initial flavor.
Body: Medium body, semi-oily. Still a light and sweet/fruity flavor. There's not a ton of agave kick to round it out.
Finish: Short finish with no heat or spice whatsoever. This is a fairly muted tequila at the end.

I'm not sure what to make of this one. The aroma is very nice and the initial taste had some promise. However, the further it went along, the less impressive the tequila was. It lacked the character that you want in a tequila...especially in a blanco. I would say that this would be a decent mixer or a mild starter tequila. It's not a bad buy, but it's also not something that I'm going to be buying again.
