Tequila – It makes me happy.
Sang Terrorvision back in the 1990’s.
And both are still keeping me happy today!
This tasty trio from Maestro Dobel come in classy bottles topped with cork stoppers – even in miniatures!
Silver – otherwise unaged Tequila.
A delightful full on flavoursome agave hit – rich earthiness abounds! It’s what I like in a 100% agave – and it certainly delivers.
A lovely exploration of the tequila genre.
Diamante Reposado – aged from 2 to 12 months in oak barrels.
Usually reposado tequila takes on a slightly golden hue from the barrel ageing – but Diamante Reposado has been filtered to remove the colour – and although exceptionally smooth & easy going with a touch of spice on the rear – I can’t help feeling some of those rich agave flavours have been stripped out too!
Añejo – aged from 1 to 3 years in oak.
A touch of woodiness, a hint of tobacco, a smidgen of smoke.
Añejo is an elegantly balanced & complex tequila displaying an agave base overlaid with flavours emanating from those wooden barrels.
A wonderful combination!
Picking a winner from this trio depends on the angle you’re coming from;
For agave fans – Silver is the truest representation,
Añejo would please whiskey drinkers,
While Diamante Reposado offers an easy drinking platform for cocktails.
For me Diamante Reposado was a bit of a disappointment – but the full on flavours of both Silver & Añejo excited my palate.
They kept me happy!
