La Pinta Pomegranate Infused Tequila

La Pinta Pomegranate Infused Tequila

La Pinta proudly represents the union between two worlds:
Tequila, the National beverage of Mexico, and Pomegranate, a distinctive fruit from the Spanish Culture.

La Pinta ages for 12 months for full infusion of the Pomegranate juices with our 80 proof Clase Azul Blanco Tequila.

Per the Tequila Regulatory Council, the CRT, La Pinta is a Tequila infused with Pomegranate juice, and it is considered a "Specialty Distilled Spirit" per the ATF in the United States.

Bought this for the wife, paid $40 at local liquor store. Bottle is attractive, frosted red, a bit plain, has a screw top. Sampled from a large shot glass 3/15/10. The color is ... red, has a odd nose that tells you this is more like a juice with some alcohol than a tequila. Everything I enjoy about agave/tequila is missing here. My wife likes it... go figure, but she doesn't enjoy what makes tequila great. If she'll have a drink with me and this is what it takes so be it. If you like pomegranate more than agave, this is for you. To be fair, I am having trouble rating this "tequila", it just isn't typical from any perspective. At least my wife likes it!

I tried this as I have had the pomegranate Margaritas at Rosa Mexicana and I thought I could duplicate them. I was wrong, the flavor when consumed straight is a bit sweet for my taste but when I used it in the margarita I got no pomegranate flavor coming through.
It was OK as a sipper but for my intended use it did not work
