Tanteo Tequila Tropical Infusion

Artisanal Tanteo Tropical 100% Agave Tequila is a delectable handmade spirit infused with fresh, all-natural extracts of mango, pineapple, and guanabana and gently kissed with the essence of jalapeño. The result is a magnificent symphony for the senses. The Tequila is lavishly endowed with semi-sweet flavors and a thoroughly satisfying, lightly peppered finish.

Whether sipped alone in a glass, or featured in a classic cocktail, Tanteo Tropical Tequila is always a tantalizing, unforgettable experience.

Venturing into an area where I wasn't sure that I wanted to, but if the price is right, I'll give any agave spirit a shot.

Aroma: Like a bag of tropical flavored skittles. Lots of fruit scents – banana, pineapple, guava and light papaya.
Initial Taste: All of the tropical fruits listed and a spice that is not the typical black/white pepper spice of a tequila, but a jalapeno spice.
Body: Thin body with a similar taste profile to the initial taste. No real change.
Finish: The jalapeno spice lingers a long time with the tropical sweetness. It’s a big time change of pace from the flavors of an aged tequila.

I definitely like the complexity of barrel aging more than infused tequilas. The tropical flavors are a nice change of pace and a jalapeno spice is an interesting addition as well. I’d say to give it a shot, but don’t expect a similar profile to a traditional tequila. I think it might be best used in a spicy tropical cocktail.

Wow, this is an unique tequila. I meet so many women that want to love tequila, but also really like fruity flavors (not just women there are a lot of men that do the same). It is 100% agave tequila that is infused with natural flavors of mango, guanabana, and pineapple. It is not for tequila purists, but for those that want a balanced tequila that is agreeable for a large variety of palates - this is it.
