I've become a big fan of this blanco. I think it's one of the top 5 blancos that are available on a regular basis. One of the big scents that people associate with the typical blanco is wet cement, and this tequila has an abundance of it.
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.
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
Tequila 1921 blanco lot #100
Tasted in a Riedel tequila glass 15.06.2010
Herbal nose, i smell basil, mint and bitter oranges.
Good mouth feel, but way to much spirit burn.
Quite bitter aftertaste, beeing a blanco, this is strange because i get
a sligtly woody taste.
Maybe a bad batch, but not my type of blanco.
The bottle is very nice though.
The wax seal is also very cool, but a pull tab like Makers Mark would be a nice touch.
