1921 Tequila Blanco

1921 Tequila Blanco is produced with 100% Blue Weber estate grown Agave, double distilled in stainless steel pot stills containing copper coils.

1921 Tequila undergoes a careful production process in a state-of-the-art facility using premium quality 100% Blue Weber Agave.  Cultivated in the red soils of the highlands region of Jalisco, estate grown agave is given great care and nourishment, encouraging optimal growth and ideal sugar concentration levels that are confirmed via routine independent lab tests.  Mature harvested piñas endure a 72 hour slow-cooking process consisting of a 24 hour continuous cooking period, 24 hour resting period and finally a 24 hour cooling period with the oven doors open.  Fermentation and distillation occur under carefully supervised and temperature controlled conditions.  Each bottle is wax sealed manually, to prevent leakage and premature oxidation.  An elegant label and bottle presentation adorned with a hand-painted clay medallion is symbolic of Mexico’s rich history and most valued traditions.  The number "1921" represents the concluding year of the Mexican Revolution.  1921 products are available in Mexico, the USA,  Canada, China, and several European markets.

1921 is a favorite to sip. The nose presents floral,peppery,spice and a touch of orange. The initial feeling is of light to medium oil,with a slight burn,to a spicy/peppery floral and maybe a touch of cinnamon taste. The finish is spicy heat with a medium linger. I love the bottle except the waxed top- They have to change that- it's very hard to open and close each time. An enjoyable blanco.- Long Island Lou

I was excited when my local liquor store began carrying 1921 Tequila products as it was one that I had heard about from this website and really wanted to try. I picked it up for $40.99 on March 1, 2013. The bottle is great. The cap has a cool melted wax covering it. Although it was often difficult to open because of how wide the cap was and that it was rather flat.

Once opened, the tequila inside was great. Nothing really remarkable about the tequila comes to mind compared to others that I have had. I greatly enjoyed it neat and in margaritas.

I would recommend it to anyone but I would not buy another bottle. I have given it a high rating because I really enjoyed it. I just do not remember any flavor from the tequila distinguishing it from others that I have had.

I like cold tequila and kept this bottle like many other in my freezer. The problem with 1921 is that the rubber cork expanded or the cap was just too slim to open. It was very aggravating and left my hands red. But once the bottle was open I forgot all about the troubles of popping the top as this tequila was very good. Nothing about the tequila itself stuck out to me but overall a great tequila.

Wow it is an honor to be part of the tequila.net club. First off i must say im only a tequila blanco sipper with all do respect to my repo and aniejo fans. O.k lets get down to the nitty gritty. 1921 blanco 100% agave for me is the best bang for my buck. Not only because i purchase it for (21 dollars half price compared to the states) in Los algodones mexico, but the tequila itself is smooth and the overall a great sipping spirit. Im really picky and this tequila is a great blanco. If i run out i dont mind spending 50 dollars for this tequila. Every sip is well worth it. The buzz is great and no hangover. I really support this tequila for all you new blanco rookies or veterans. The burn is almost none. I get a pure agave, not to strong presence. The intial taste is pure agave. The enjoyability is second to none being a blanco fan. The price like i said is well worth it. The presentaion is classy. Really nice bottle with the whole revolution theme and the wax seal is outstanding. Like i said you want the real deal try this. You wont be let down!

Sallam!

Snag all of the 1079's you can get. The tequila tracker was right on this one. Thank you BOB. this was delicious

The first time I had it I was getting alot of dill and fresh herbs. tonight I tasted it along 7LB, Milagro select blanco, ocho 2009 plata, and boy did I smell things differently.

I was smelling a blueberry candy and the taste confirmed the smell. I still got the fresh herb taste but this night in particular I was detecting a spicy blueberry agave thing going on. It is absolutely declious.


A game changer in the blanco department. I havenot tried the new offerings but I will continue to snatch up in 1079 noms. I live in the bay area, so if you live in the bay area, please keep these on the shelves for me to find. THANK YOU

Hodafez!
