Exellent blanco tequila with true blue agave presence. I personally prefer it as a shot or neat. I keep it in the freezer and enjoy the ice cold shot with the nice burn that really lets you know your drinking an alcoholic beverage.
Tasted 04/28/15 from a Riedel Tequila Glass.
Appearance: Crystal clear
Aroma: Mild agave with citrus, vegetal, and ginseng (earthy wood) notes. A slight aroma of alcohol was also present.
Initial Taste: Agave, honey, vegetal notes, and black pepper. However, there was no alcohol burn.
Body: Buttery mouth feel and slow tears on the glass. The dominant flavors are agave and pepper.
Finish: Smooth medium length finish of sweet agave followed by a very peppery ending which makes it a little rough. After a few sips a slightly earthy or minty aftertaste became noticeable.
Price: RRP: $27.99
Presentation: An attractive contemporary blue bottle. The design certainly catches your eye on a crowded bar shelf.
Milagro Silver has garnered a lot of prestigious awards however, I was somewhat disappointed in my three tastings of it. It seemed to lack character and perhaps this was due to the triple distillation that it undergoes. It would probably make a good mixer but you can find better blancos in the $20 to $30 price range.
purchased at my local on Sept. 30...Nom1420.
had a peppery taste with a after burn. short duration.
i think it would be better in a mix than neat.. all in all
i say the price is the most attractive part.
Tasted in Reidel glass - perfectly clear in colour, shiny with light to medium viscosity. Nose is pleasing, but very mild agave and faint citrus. Very soft on entry it yields to mild agave, some minerals, and a bitter overtaste which persists through a hot and lengthy alcohol finish. It leaves a bitter, but not unpleasant aftertaste of mint. Overall it is an undistinguished blanco. I fully agree with the other reviewer who would best use it as a mixer.
