Tequila Baluarte Reserva Especial Blanco

Tequila Baluarte Blanco is 100% pure Agave and double distilled.

Baluarte takes the legend along, the Mexican eagle knight, combined with its nocturnal life (our black color, night’s black symbol), and the name Baluarte comes from the flagship symbol, the ship which is followed by others. Also we took the basic definition “Distinguishing sign”, due to its handmade traditional process in which no chemicals are added.

I purchased this in Mexico (Cancune airport) because of the convenience of the duty store. I am so glad I did buy it 3 bottles. $35.A piece U.S. I can't find it in Michigan I would by more price in states that I could find out $50.+.. This is hands down the best tequlia I have tasted wich includes patron silver and 1800 silver and lesser quality of same brands. if you ever happen to find a bottle try it. I drink it at room temp for full flavor shots. With salt and lime, with just lime,and just to try different ways and my absolute favorite straight up. This even goes for my wife who enjoys this tequlia just as much.

Big sweet cream pie agave smell the second you pour it. It's a thick nose, with just the faintest whiff of pleasing alcohol. Very enticing. Taste is, in a word, delicious. Mouthfeel is buttery but clean. Spicy black pepper hits the tongue almost immediately. There's a creamy zesty cooked agave richness to this blanco. Some light sweetness compliments its otherwise bold and punchy character giving it a terrific balance. A nice long big agave finish with lovely spicy heat and tingle, more light-sweet than earthy on the fade-out. A serious, flavourful tequila that warms you right up, perfect for a cold winter's day or a hot summer night. Spicy and yummy. A fantastic blanco.

Baluarte Blanco, triple distilled 100% Puro de Agave Azul. NOM 1465. Three oz. tasted 3/10/11 from a 65oz. snifter. I first tasted this at the 2010 East Coast Tequila Fest. I scored it 4 out of 5 stars. That put it in class with the 1942, Casa Noble, Tapatio, and Chinaco sampled that evening. The nose is classic sweet welcoming agave with a mid pleasing nasal burn. Initial taste is cream herbal, green, and slightly bitter. After taste tingle and numbing is of long duration. Body is mild, pleasant and moderately light. Finish runs from the lips on down. Upon full sip it is at first sweet with long and full on agave. This is a very enjoyable tequila that is on my to buy again list. Purchased from Wine and Liquor Depot the price is just right at 33.59/750ml. Tall, dark, and handsome at a shelf challenging 15 1/2" height the bottle is a show stopper. Glossy black with a combination of print and labeling it is impressive on the bar or shelf. Synthetic cork. Worth every cent.
