Blue Nectar Tequila Reposado Special Reserve

Don Miguelon Blue Nectar Tequila Special Reserve is a Reposado Tequila carefully aged in charred oak barrels and infused with natural spice flavors for a rich, complex palate that finishes with a smooth, lingering Agave taste. Ideally enjoyed neat.

A good tequila requires a connoisseur’s eye. A great tequila, an artist’s touch. Blue Nectar Tequila began with a simple, driving passion to create small-batch artisan tequila products with flavors uniquely their own, yet universally renowned.

It starts with our Maestro Jimadors, who patiently walk the blue agave fields of Jalisco, Mexico, hand selecting each plant that will be cooked and pressed to release the tantalizing juices held within. It continues with our Maestro Tequilero who carefully oversees the crafting of our three 100% blue agave expressions. His efforts can be seen in each of the three distillations that ensure Blue Nectar Silver achieves clean, crisp perfection. His ingenuity can be tasted in the delicate blend of reposado and limited production extra añejo tequila that creates Blue Nectar Reposado. And his skill can be admired during the infusion of spices to a relaxed, bourbon-barrel-aged tequila to craft the rich, layered flavor of Blue Nectar Special Reserve.

This is respect for the ingredients and love of the craft. This is premium tequila honed by devout connoisseurs and interpreted by gifted artisans. This is tradition redefined.

After reviewing 400 tequilas, it's nice that there's always new brands to surprise you. Blue Nectar Tequila is one of those brands. It comes from NOM 1459 (Tequila Selecto de Amatitán, S.A. De C.V.) which makes some other nicely priced and tasty juices like Gran Tulum and Viva Los Sanchos. The bottle has a very sleek look that would also work well as a book stop. I'm not sure what to expect, but the best way to find out is to dive right in...

Aroma: A very nice and well balance nose. Agave, vanilla, spice and ripe fruit (apple & banana)

Initial Taste: A nice balance of agave and vanilla. Tasty, but not too sweet.

Body: A nice oily body that sits on the tongue like velvet. Agave and oak combine to make an array of flavors. This isn’t vegetal at all. Just a nice combo of sweetness, spice, pepper and wood.

Finish: Nice pepper flavors along with the brown spices work with the oak and vanilla to make a medium length, but delicious linger.

Simply put, I dig this one a lot. It's got good balance and a lot of flavor. The green agave aspect isn't huge in this, if that's your preferred profile. However, if you like a good balance of agave, spice, light sweetness and a medium oak note, this will be in your wheel house. And the big bonus of this one is that it's in the mid-$30 range. This bottle is a definite buy if you see it one the shelf. Well done Blue Nectar!
