Riazul Premium Silver Tequila

Tequila Riazul Premium Silver is 100% Blue Agave, bottled immediately following distillation. This traditional Tequila is bold in flavor and provides "the ultimate blanco experience".

Editor review

Riazul Silver * Tasted Blind 2-22-09 * Riedel Tequila Glass

Appearance: clear - full body and slow tears
Aroma: earthy and herbal, buttery agave, hint of vanilla
Initial Taste: mild sweet agave, citrus, chalky mouthfeel
Spirit Body: heated, minty agave, mild butter
Finish / Aftertaste: warm mouthfeel, floral with mild chocolate aftertaste

Two characteristics in Riazul that are not normally found in blanco Tequilas, the vanilla in the nose, and the chocolate aftertaste. Interesting and unique profile.

I must say for all the hype i read about this tequila I expected more.Slow tears,and I agree with the previous review about the vanilla in the nose which also has strong agave,citrus,and earthy notes.The taste reveals exactly whats on the nose I evan got a hint of vanilla at mid palette.It does have a very strong "chewy" body.The finish is smooth with peppery notes.The bottle is really cool and makes a great presentation but I expected a better liquid in the bottle at this price.Overall its not bad but there are other blancos I would prefer to sip then this one.

After tasting the anejo from Riazul, I've been dying to taste the rest of the line. The anejo is so good, that I really wanted to try the base that they started with. Is it as good as the aged one, or is the secret in the barrel?

Aroma: Wonderful nose of agave and citrus. Hints of grass.
Initial Taste: A really clean and crisp agave flavor with lemon and light pepper.
Body: A medium and oily body. Agave continues to be the prominent flavor. Very clean and crisp flavor. No earthy flavors at all.
Finish: A fairly short finish with a light peppery note mixed with the agave sweetness. Not memorable in terms of flavor, but it is really easy going down.

This tequila is a consummate smooth blanco sipper. Not challenging, but very tasty and ultra smooth. Lots of agave and citrus. Really pleasant. It's not quite as good as the anejo, but it would great for all tequila drinkers. Riazul is priced at a premium, but in the end it's a very good tequila...and probably worth the price.
