Tequila Pura Sangre Gran Reserva Blanco

Tequila Pura Sangre Gran Reserva Blanco is 100% Blue Agave and produced at La Tequileña distillery.

The name, Pura Sangre (Pure Blood) is used in Spanish to refer to pure bred horses, or what we would call a "Thoroughbred", thus the horse's head in the brand logo. Long available in Mexico, the standard varieties of Tequila Pura Sangre are now being sold in some regions of the U.S.

It's been a while since I've last written. For that I apologize. I've been trying not to open more bottles because my current open bottle count got over 350 and that just seemed like too much. But tonight I'm happy to open and try something new. Tonight, it's a blanco from one of my favorite distilleries (NOM 1146) in Purasangre Blanco.

Price: $35-40/bottle

Aroma: A complex, but balanced nose. A buttery agave smell with hints of mint and vegetal notes along with a nice pepper aspect as well.

Initial Taste: It starts out with a very sweet and candied beginning, but moves a bit more to the spicy/peppery side.

Body: A nice oily body. The vegetal notes come forward a bit more. Green peppers stand out with the still present sweetness and pepper.

Finish: A very nice linger on this one. The combo of spicy black pepper is strong and the sweet agave fades away slowly.

This is an all around wonderful blanco. From nose to mouthfeel to flavor to finish, this is exactly what a blanco should bring to the table. Very nice effort from Purasangre!

This Tequila was really an enjoyable experience from start to finish. Every thing about it was memorable.

Aroma: Very peppery. Hints of butter and earth as well.
Inital Taste: An oily mouth feel. On the tip of the tongue, it was very sweet yet not bitter.
Body: Great agave body with hints of earth and spices. A slight hint of apple.
Finish: Of medium to long heated duration, with no alcohol burn.
