Aroma: grass & agave
Taste: light on the tongue with the taste of earth and faint pepper finishing very smooth
This is a blanco that has moved into my top five. It is too bad I have to travel out of state to purchase. Chinaco, Siete Leguas, Corralejo and Milagro are my current top blanco picks as of the writing of this review
7 Leguas is one of my favorite blancos. In my humble opinion, it has alot of depth to it from the aroma to the finish. Truly a classic.
Aroma: I detected intense floral and earth with hints of mild smoke.
Initial taste:Intense earth and lots of agave
Body: followed by continued agave with slight floral and citrus
Finish: For me, a long duration with the agave and mild smoke taste fading out nicely.
Presentation has nothing to do with the taste, but 7 Leguas comes very nicely packaged.
Silver-gray colour and moderate viscosity. Deep rich agave, herbal and mineral nose with little alcohol presence. Initially sweet strong agave - traces of spice and mint in a full and luscious body. Finishes with a mild bitterness, strong agave and a long minty aftertaste. Classy, refreshing and unpretentious, this is a very fine artesanal blanco.
I had an opportunity to compare side-by-side the Mexican product against its American export version. The Mexican blanco has deeper herbals in the nose - is sharper and slightly more acidic but a tastier presentation overall. The export product offers softer, milder characteristics. These differences could be attributed to different lots, but my clear preference is the Mexican.
