El Grado Tequila Blanco

El Grado Tequila Blanco is an ultra premium tequila and crafted from 100% pure Blue Weber Agave plants grown in the rich soil of Los Altos in the Highlands of Jalisco.

Each Agave plant is carefully selected from mature fields yielding large plants high in sugar content. The la pina, the soul of the agave plant, is never rushed; it is selected at its peak maturity to provide El Grado Tequila a mellow, fully developed Agave flavor. The traditional art of slow-cooking has not changed with El Grado, it has been improved. We combine state-of-the-art quality process controls supported by modern technology with the traditional production and crop techniques used 200 years ago and handed down through generations. Tradition meets the 21st century.

El Grado presents their product in a manner befitting its pride of place as “Tequila’s Crown Jewel.” Simple, soaring and elegant, the French-made bottle features a glass-topped closure.

May, 2009: El Grado teamed with Rolex Sports Car Series competitor Patrick Dempsey Racing. Dempsey’s Mazda RX-8 GT debuted in El Grado livery in time for the team’s best finish in the Rolex series (7th) in Millville, New Jersey and a 10th place finish at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in California.

I really liked this blanco. Its not usually I come across, hard to find, so when I do I make sure to get it! I can't say it really stands out in the tequila crowd, but its a solid brand.

Aroma: A nice berry/agave aroma.
Initial Taste: A thin mouth feel, with no bitterness. Nice citrus highlands entry.
Body: Bold agave body. With nice compliments of citrus,
Finish: A nice semi heated finish with a great agave lingering.
