Azuñia Tequila Platinum Blanco

Azuñia Tequila Platinum Blanco is smooth, clean craft tequila with authentic flavor from the local terroir in every sip. It is the exclusive export of Agaveros Unidos and its second-generation, family-owned-and-operated Rancho Miravalle estate, which has created exceptional tequila for nearly 20 years. Made with 100% pure Weber Blue Agave grown in dedicated fields of the Jalisco lowlands, we harvest by hand and roast the organic agave in traditional clay hornos to ensure authenticity and depth of flavor. We then finish with a natural, open-air fermentation process and bottle on-site in small batches using a consistent process to deliver field-to-bottle quality.

Un-aged Azuñia Tequila Blanco offers a clean floral nose with hints of agave and lemon. Celebrate with its long finish of light pepper and citrus.

Alright...I WANT to love this one. The anejo is one of my favorites. I know the brand is organic and well crafted, so here goes...

Aroma: Earthy agave with citrus and grassy & vegetal notes.
Initial Taste: Sweet agave entry with nice fruity tones.
Body: Medium body and nice oiliness to it that coats the whole mouth. Still agave forward with a hint of earth. A nice complex spice mix makes the flavor really great.
Finish: A medium-long finish that highlights the agave and spices. Some light vegetal notes are there too and work really well with the agave.

This tequila is why you really have to taste something more than once before writing it off. The first time I had it, I thought it was OK, but a bit too vegetal for my tastes. After letting it air, the alcohol scent got more mild and the fruit notes really came through nicely. This is a very good blanco for all occasions. I don't love the wine bottle look for tequilas considering the beautiful bottles that are out there, but at least the juice inside is pretty darn good.

Aroma: Grassy and floral with mild hints of agave. Very "wild" on the nose.
Initial taste: Sweet and well rounded with no bitterness.
Body: Light with citrus peel, grass, and agave.
Finish: Citrus peel and agave last over the course of a medium-to-short finish with very little heat.

This is a great blanco that's dry and grassy. Very enjoyable, but maybe not to unexperienced tequila drinkers. Not a pretty bottle, but that's okay. The contents are good.

I have to admit, for the most part, Im not the biggest fan of blancos that comes out of Amatitan. But this one is an exception... Very smooth and worthy of trying..

Aroma: Agave and slight floral.
Initial Taste: A thin mouth feel, its sweet on entry with no bitterness and an initial taste of vegetal.
Body: A well rounded body of agave with hints of earth, floral and ever so slight smoke.
Finish: A lightly heated finish of short duration with a pleasant agave lingering.

Tasted out of a caballito. I was very impressed by this lowlands tequila. Usually, I prefer highlands tequilas, but this one took me by surprise.

Aroma: A nice grassy nose full of agave, and slight fruit and earth.
Initial Taste: A thin mouth feel, theres no bitterness on entry with an initial taste of clove.
Body: A very nicely balanced agave body with compliments of earth, smoke and fruit.
Finish: A lightly heated finish of short duration with a fruity agave lingering.

Just a great blanco!
