Olmeca Altos Tequila Plata

Olmeca Altos 100% Agave Tequila is born from a unique partnership between internationally renowned UK Bartenders Henry Besant and Dre Masso and Olmeca's own Master Distiller Jesús Hernández.

Olmeca Altos Tequila is produced in Los Altos of Jalisco, 2104 metres above sea level, and is created, in part, using the traditional Tahona production process, before being distilled in small copper pot stills.

A simple nose of sweet cooked agave with a hint of banana. A bit of spicy citrus hits the tongue in the taste, with a little mint as well, and there is still a decent sweetness present under it all. The body has a medium weight, but rather dry with the citrus flavor still pertinent. A quick heat in the finish - not much lingering, but what is there is a nice sweet and vegetal flavor.

There's nothing offensive here, although nothing outstanding either. This is strictly a mixer for me, but it serves that purpose quite well. It's priced as a bargain tequila, and that fits it well - high score in that regard. An attractive square bottle with a sturdy screw-on top and wooden cap, this is built for bar duty.

Price and presentation get the overall score to 90, but in reality this is a respectable, high 80s, B+ tequila.

I love tequilas that remember Mexico's past. This tequila is good, but not great. A better mixer than sipper.

Aroma: Pine, grass, and citrus.
Initial taste: A thin mouth feel. A sweet entry with no bitterness. Initial taste of citrus.
Body: A decent highlands agave body. But not very complex.
Finish: A semi heated agave lingering of medium duration.

Recommended by a friend and I really liked this blanco. A nice Agave presence in the aroma and flavor with some smoke and citrus. Kind of a tropical and earthy thing going on. Very nice and inexpensive.

First experienced this tequila at the recommendation of a bartender in Prauge. It was a pleasant surprise as it was smooth with a slight burn. Good nose and nice legs.
