The mountain town of Jesús-María (elev. 6,079’) is tequila’s highest altitude agave region, and the El Pandillo Distillery is arguably one of the most forward-thinking and sustainable distilleries in the business. There, Felipe Camarena masterfully crafts this bright, aromatic tequila from stressed hillside agave plants, slowly roasted in brick ovens and macerated intact with fiber for a pronounced agave flavor.
This truly is a great tasting Blanco, will be buying more.
This tequila is very drinkable, yet complex with a long, satisfying finish. It tastes purely of agave and fragrant rain water, with no harshness other than the pleasant burn of the alcohol itself. One thing that tequila aficionados might not like is the fact that it doesn't have much of an aroma, but this still definitely belongs on your shelf.
This distillery continues to create the finest expressions of tequila.
