Frida Kahlo Tequila Blanco

Frida Kahlo Tequila Blanco is naturally fermented for up to four days; the agave juices are then double-distilled in antique copper stills and bottled un-aged. The result is a smooth, super-premium tequila that mixes perfectly with your favorite drink or to enjoy by itself.

Frida Kahlo Tequila is made in Jesus Maria, in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico.

I've been intrigued by the Frida Kahlo line for quite some time, but never had the opportunity to try it until recently. Since the price goes up by $10 a bottle as the ages advance, I thought it would be best to start off with the blanco to taste the base juice.

Aroma: Nice grassy agave smell with hints of pine, citrus and mint.
Initial Taste: Grassy agave. Very crisp and pleasant.
Body: Medium-thin body. This is very agave forward. The complimentary flavors (grassy notes and mint) are light, but work very well to make it unique.
Finish: A very easy finish with a fairly short duration. There's a nice pepper kick along with mint.

This is a pretty good tequila. It's not the best I've ever had, but I think that new and seasoned tequila drinkers alike will both enjoy this one. For the price, I think that it's just good enough for me to want to get the reposado and anejo. Pretty nice work from NOM 1465.

Tasted this in November of 2011 out of a Riedel glass.

I quite enjoyed this blanco, and was surprised by a hint (just a slight one) of smoke that I had not come across in my (limited) experience. I'll be curious to try the Repo and Anejo of this line.

Tasted on 09/03/08 out of a snifter. This blanco was a pleasant surprise. I'm still on the fence about its marketing. Nevertheless, it's a very good blanco.

Aroma: A pleasant nose of pine.
Initial Taste: Upon entry, its sweet with no bitterness. An oily mouth feel.
Body: Agave and fruit.
Finish: A short semi heated finish.
