I tried 1800 Select Silver at El Carmen this past week during a tequila tasting. This was tasted out of a little plastic cup so take it for what its worth.

It is pretty obvious that this tequila was made for shooting. 1800 Select Silver is 100pf. As with other 100pf tequilas, there is a stronger presence of alcohol. The finish is hotter and there is more of a bite. To compensate for this, 1800 Select Silver is triple distilled and rested for 45 days in white oak. This is an attempt to mellow the flavors and the finish.

I think 1800 tried too hard to remove all taste from the tequila, however. To make a good 100pf, you need to have bold flavors in your blanco or else you just taste the alcohol. And if I wanted to drink rubbing alcohol, I would drink vodka.

I cannot recommend this tequila except for possibly doing chilled shots with salt and lime. And if that interests you in the slightest, then why are you reading tequila reviews?

Try Don Fulano Fuerte if you are interested in tasting a well done 100pf blanco.
