Sauza Blue Tequila Silver
Sauza Blue Tequila Silver is 100% Blue Agave crafted at the renowned Sauza Distillery in Jalisco, Mexico. The agave plants are put into tequila production within 48 hours of being hand-picked, then milled and steeped prior to cooking in a process called “Fresh Pressed Agave,” resulting in the freshest, natural, crisp agave flavor.

Ok, this is another inexpensive ($24) silver from Total Wine and More. I tasted it today, except I wouldn't use it for sipping. Obviously, there are many good reposados and anejos for that. This juice is a little alcoholy, but I expect that. Yet, once you accept that and get past it, it's not a bad tasting silver. It has a strange property, that it tastes better and better after the first assault. Yes, I know all tequilas do that, but I mean after swilling it around your mouth a little bit and you get over the initial shock of alcohol, it really tastes much better. So I think it's just fine for margaritas, and because it's 106 right now outside of Sacramento on the 4th of July, you put this baby on the rocks and it's really quite refreshing. Okay, okay, I did say this was slightly inflated, didn't I? Salud and enjoy.
Is it really 100% agave?
I saw this at a very low price and couldn't resist a 100% agave tequila at such a low cost. But it's truly about worth what I paid. I thought it was a mixto from the flavor. Too much alcohol burn and hint of petroleum - the giveaway of an aguardiente blend to me. That said, it mixes well in Margaritas. My all-time preference for Margaritas is Hornitos reposado, though, and this doesn't compare.
