Don Eduardo Silver Tequila

Don Eduardo Silver Tequila - Distilled from 100% blue agave, this superb tequila is uniquely "triple distilled" for incredible smoothness. This innovative practice has since been copied by competitors but you will find that the Don Eduardo Silver has a flavor profile all of its own.

Perhaps I got a bad batch, but none the less here is my review:

Nose: not very memorable but not off putting either. Agave is somewhat noticeable.
Initial Taste: Hits you with spice right away, it is a nice clean taste. This is the best part of the experience.
Body: At this point it goes down hill. Mine was almost unrecognizable as a blanco and had next to no agave flavor, perhaps a causality of the triple distillation process. It then gets almost bitter with a fairly strong alcohol burn.
Finish: Like most other reviewers, I would state this does not have a lingering finish and the alcohol burn dissipates quickly. The price is decent for what you get ($29) and the colored cork is a plus.

All in all this was the first triple distilled blanco I found to be almost unrecognizable as a tequila. While I would try this again, just to be certain my batch was not bad, I would highly recommend triple distilled marks like Arta and Corzo for a blanco in that category.

This is one of my favorite blancos at a very reasonable price.

Aroma: The nose in unremarkable, but smells clean and fresh.
Initial Taste: Clean agave flavor with nice spice notes.
Body: Light body with the same sweet and lightly spicy notes.
Finish: Great finish that is much like the rest of the drink.

It's just a really refreshing tequila. Can be sipped or mixed in a premium margarita. Cool bottle too.

So looking at the reviews here it looks like I might be in the minority. I found this to be a good blanco but not exceptional. Some times I find that the more times they distill the product it strips out some of the character and I found that the body of this didn't have a tonne of character.
The nose was really quite pleasant agave(as you would expect considering the distilation and the being a blanco) but not really anything else.
The initial taste was again pleasant but not overwhelming, citrus with a lot of lime and a touch of tar. The finish was clean, but a little too clean, really not much body to it at all. I know that is what you look for in a blanco but it just seemed to leave me unsatisfied. There was a fairly long linger alcohol linger.
There just seemed to be an overall lack of character in this bottle for me. The presentation was quite nice again not my favorite but a bit of a unique closure and the "hammered" glass is nice.

Very good Tequila, a rarity in that it is a "sipper" at a great price ($29), I prefer it out of a snifter. Don't recommend this for shots (should you be so inclined to "shoot" Tequila...true Tequila drinkers don't shoot, they savor and enjoy!). Excellent bargain, good Tequila to have others try who are not true Tequila drinkers, this will bring them into the fold.

I used a medium size snifter for this tasting. For me, the nose was earthy and 100% Agave, lot's of Agave. My first sip kind of caught me off guard, it was much more intense than I expected. The hit of Agave is overwhelming. I am talking a pure, powerful Agave attack. If there were other flavors present, I did not pick them up on the first sipping. On my second sip, the Agave was still there in spades but far less aggressive. This time I also picked up very distinctly, spicy cinnamon nuances. I really liked that. After letting it set for about five minutes, I went back to it and this time the Agave was very prominent again, as was a kind of peppery, yet fruity flavor profile. I also enjoyed that very much. A few minutes later I finished off the shot and again the Agave is there and this time the cinnamon returned but almost no spiciness. This time the smoothness was very evident, as were hints of other fruits but nothing seemed distinct. The finish seems exceptionally long with a fair amount of warmth back down the throat, along with lingering hints of cinnamon. This is a great sipper IMHO and because of the intense up front agave flavor, it makes wonderful margaritas.
