Tequila Pueblo Viejo Blanco

Tequila Pueblo Viejo Blanco is 100% de Agave and produced at San Matias, which is one of the oldest distilleries in Mexico. Tequila Pueblo Viejo blanco is colorless, full, and slightly pungent on the attack. Light agave intensity and sencillo agave complexity. Herbal, artichoke, and ripe apple aromas dominate. Low sweetness and thin to medium mouth feel. Some pepper and sweet caramel flavors with hints of agave. Hot, medium finish with a sweet, apple flavor.

I'm on a bit of a run of value tequilas from high end & respected distilleries. Often times, you can find real gems by going with the lowest priced juices from great distilleries. Pueblo Viejo comes from NOM 1103 (Tequila San Matiás de Jalisco, SA CV). They make great brands like San Matiás, Rey Sol and Corazón. This bottle can be purchased for under $20, which is always nice...especially when I've had the repo and thought that it was a nice quality tequila. I hope that this one can do the same for those who are looking for a nice versatile blanco on a budget.

Price: $16-20/bottle

Aroma: An earthy agave nose with a hint of fresh baked bread.

Initial Taste: Very simple...earthy cooked agave. Nice sweetness mixed with earth notes.

Body: A fairly thick & oily body...a very nice mouth feel. The earthy agave remains, but is complimented by pepper and a hint of cinnamon.

Finish: A fairly short finish that involves the aforementioned flavors. Solid, but not much of a linger. Very easy to drink.

This is a solid all around blanco. Nice profile for sipping (for those who prefer earthy) with a nice mouth feel and a good price for mixing. For under $20, this tequila is a can't miss. The bottle is nothing special, but if you pick this one up, I doubt that you'll be disappointed.

Tasted on 6/20/08 out of Caballito. Pueblo Viejo was not a bad tequila at all. At 18 bucks for a bottle, I surely didnt expect it to be the best, but it definitely wasnt the worst by any means. A very simple, yet decent tasting blanco. A decent sipper, and Im sure it would be a great mixer.
Aroma: Strong agave and citrus.
Initial Taste: A thin mouth feel, with peppery and spicy tones.
Body: A decent, simple body of agave and citrus. Nothing too complex.
Finish: Of short duration with very mild alcohol burn.
