Agavales, Blanco Tequila, 35%

As it’s Day Of The Dead – I thought a Mexican Tequila would be in order to celebrate all those that have gone before.

Agavales Blanco c/othewhiskeynut

Part of my miniature haul purchased back at the start of the pandemic – Agavales Blanco is a 100% Agave from a distillery in Jalisco – NOM 1438 – that produces many brands.

Classic clear colourless blanco.

Prominent & pleasing agave pungency.

A tad soft & easy on the palate – which may reflect the 35% ABV.

Opens up on the finish with prickly peppery spice & an enlivening bite too!

A rather gentle introduction into 100% agave.

Sierra, Tequila Reposado, 38%

Well this is quite a fun bottle!

Garishly attractive bright yellow label featuring a guitar playing hombre sat under a cactus – embossed lettering on the side – complete with a golden sombrero cap too!

You’d be forgiven for thinking this was rather cheap, gimmicky stereotypical marketing.

Yet the liquid inside was classic tequila!

Lots of earthy pungent agave on the nose.

More agave on the easy & accessible palate.

Topped off by a gently growing peppery spice.
