One of the few tequilas I go back to.
Looks crystal clear white, leaves long legs around my snifter glass, tear drops form throughout the pour.
Nose is pretty straightforward but enjoyable. Notes of agave and earthiness.
Taste develops nicely, agave, spice and sweetness begin to develop, minty flavors.
Finish is long, peppery, but never harsh, sweet and mineral.
Mouthfeel is medium to full, somewhat oily.
Overall this is a solid blanco tequila for sipping.
I have a bartender friend who drinks 7 Leguas on ice and calls it butter water. Which is apt. I find this to be one of the most drinkable blancos, with a full body and mellow richness that is, yes, almost buttery.
Tried this in a flight along with Milagro Select Blanco, Ocho 2009 Plata, and 1921 NOM 1079. First off I found the bottle to be a little cheap as it was twist off and there was no real way for me to tell if it was already opened or if I broke the seal.
Scent: Traditional agave smell, slight citrus like and orange rind.
Taste: peppery, hot, slight vanilla, caramel, well rounded and integrated flavor.
Finish: long and pleasant, no burn
This is a good blanco that reminds me of old school flavor (I think of sol de mexico blanco as well) although it didnt knock me off my seat it seems like a good traditional tequila.
The birth brand to Patron. They sell Patron to a hair stylist and continue making good tequila. Make money and continue with your passion...what sounds better than that?
Aroma: Earthy agave with a nice strong mint scent as well.
Initial Taste: Earthy with some pine needle notes. Interesting
Body: Nice medium & oily body. Coats the mouth well and there are TONS of flavors. Agave, earth, pine mint, pepper. Great flavors that work together well.
Finish: A great long finish with lingering flavors of agave, pepper and mint. A wonderful finish to a wonderful all-around tequila.
This is a great combination of flavors in a blanco. Even though there's lots of flavors, they compliment each other instead of battling. I'd recommend this to anyone looking to explore the complexities of sipping blancos. Well priced and great tasting. Sign me up...
