Leyenda del Milagro Silver Tequila

Milagro Silver is made from 100% estate-grown, hand picked blue agave harvested from the highlands of Jalisco. The heart of the agave is roasted in brick ovens made from the same volcanic-rich soil where the blue agave fourishes in Jalisco, Mexico. Our recipe produces tequila of extraordinary depth and character. Clear and transparent, Milagro Silver is triple-distilled for unparalleled smoothness.

Tasted 04/28/15 from a Riedel Tequila Glass.
Appearance: Crystal clear
Aroma: Mild agave with citrus, vegetal, and ginseng (earthy wood) notes. A slight aroma of alcohol was also present.
Initial Taste: Agave, honey, vegetal notes, and black pepper. However, there was no alcohol burn.
Body: Buttery mouth feel and slow tears on the glass. The dominant flavors are agave and pepper.
Finish: Smooth medium length finish of sweet agave followed by a very peppery ending which makes it a little rough. After a few sips a slightly earthy or minty aftertaste became noticeable.
Price: RRP: $27.99
Presentation: An attractive contemporary blue bottle. The design certainly catches your eye on a crowded bar shelf.

Milagro Silver has garnered a lot of prestigious awards however, I was somewhat disappointed in my three tastings of it. It seemed to lack character and perhaps this was due to the triple distillation that it undergoes. It would probably make a good mixer but you can find better blancos in the $20 to $30 price range.

Tasted in a Riedel glass on 2/15/14. Bought at Trader's Joes at $19.99 for a 750 ml bottle. The bottle is sleek and cool. It says you're hip and young. Not much old-world tradition here. The overall taste is adequate, but not pronounced. I don't detect much vanilla or caramel flavor. The agave is not real strong and it's a little too alcohol for sipping. It's an okay margarita maker. I'd recommend it when you're looking for a change, but it's not one of my favorites. If you spend more, you'll get more. For the few dollars less I'd get Sauza Hornitos if you want something smoother. That said, you could do worse than Milagro. Like I said, it's okay for margaritas.

This is a great blanco for the price. It wasn't exceptional but it was pretty good. I mixed margaritas with it. The bottle is okay.

I don't know what else to say really. All in all it was an average tequila.

Good for the money

This stuff is affordable and mixes very well in a margarita.

Nose: Not very remarkable, simply smells like strong alcohol
Body: One of the nicer aspects about this tequila is how clear and pristine it looks
Finish: Probably the roughest part of the experience. As far as budget tequilas finishes way rougher than it's blanco counter parts like Corralejo, Espolon, Horinitos and Cazadores. The presentation is fairly elegant with beautiful blue bottle. It is worth noting that in the three bottles I had, the cork managed to sever when opening the bottle, a tall tail sign of cheap glue.

All in all this is clearly meant for mixing or shots. If you intend on sipping go for this brands Reposado which should only be a few dollars more. You should never pay more than $24 for a bottle.

A consummate mixing tequila. Works very well in margaritas or other mixed drinks, but not really smooth or flavorful enough to want to drink straight. Very little character, a bit too much burn to be sipped regularly.

However, the price is right and the agave flavor and quality come out well in mixed drinks. The bottle is simple, but classy. A good, but not great tequila.
