JLP The President's Tequila Blanco

JLP The President's Tequila Blanco is double distilled and bottled straight from the still to capture its unique character and flavors. Produced from the finest 100% Blue Weber Agave and grown uniquely in the highlands of Jalisco, at the distillery Productos Finos de Agave.

JLP The President's Tequila was created to honor a history rooted in the original development of Tequila. In November of 1758, Jesus Lopez Portillo Y Galindo, the President's ancestor and governor of the Villa of Tequila in the Jalisco region, granted a hacienda to Jose Antonio in the name of King Carlos III of Spain. It was there, in 1795, that Cuervo's daughter Maria married Vincente Albino Rojas - from whom JLP's ancestors also descends - and they founded the first distillery, La Rojena. They would become the first to receive concession from King Carlo IV of Spain to develop and produce Tequila.

A really good value line of tequilas. I love the reposado and the anejo...so I knew that I had to try the blanco as well. Needless to say, The President (JLP) has great taste in tequila.

Price: $20-30/bottle
Aroma: Lightly earthy agave with hints of flowers and citrus...and a touch of alcohol on the nose.
Initial Taste: Great sweet agave entry with lots of floral and citrus notes.
Body: Medium-Thick body for a blanco. Lots of great flavors coating the mouth with an oily body as well. Agave and citrus are the most prominent. There is a slight alcohol flavor as well, but not enough to make it unpleasant.
Finish: Medium finish with slight alcohol numbing. Light pepper notes with a hint of earth. For a tequila that is so good in the early stages, the finish is oddly lacking a bit. Still a decent finish, but it's the weakest aspect of the tequila.

I purchased this bottle for slightly under $20 and at that price it's an absolute steal. The other ages of this line are stronger than the blanco, but I would happily recommend this to anyone...even in the $30 range. It's a high quality juice with a lot of flavor and character for an unaged spirit.
