Pura Vida Silver Tequila

Pura Vida Silver Tequila delivers pure Agave flavor and unparalleled drinking pleasure when making your favorite cocktail or the ultimate margarita. But purists may prefer to simply savor its untarnished Agave flavor on its own - unchilled and unadulterated.

Pura Vida, español for pure life or the good life, means living life to the fullest, pushing the limits of excitement, or, as far as your sense of adventure takes you.

Pura Vida is another line out of NOM 1414 (probably my favorite). Another celebrity tequila (Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top). I very much enjoyed the anejo and at the price point, I knew that I would buy the other two as well.

Aroma: Agave, grassy notes, citrus fruit and a hint of mint.
Initial Taste: Sweet agave with vegetal notes that are a bit like cooking spices (thyme).
Body: Triple distillation gives it a bit of a thin mouth feel, but it still oily enough to impart a nice mix of flavors that include agave, pepper, spices and mint.
Finish: A medium finish with just a hint of pepper. Very pleasant finish to a very nice all around blanco.

This tequila wasn't too much like the aged ones. This one has a lot more earthy/grassy/minty flavor to it and it is done exceptionally well. It is smooth the whole way through and is complex with flavors that work well together. For the $30 range, this is a near must have blanco. The blue tear drop bottles with a heavy metal stopper are a nice touch as well.

Paid $28 for this bottle

Nice pour out of the bottle. It comes from a great nom 1414. Triple distilled.

Nose: hint of mint, light and crisp, and full of fragrant agave
Taste: Roasted Agave. Great semi-oily mouthfeel. Spice.
Finish: Heated roasted agave on the finish. Nice and warm

A steal under $30, a good buy under $35, worth it under $39.
