Cristalino Añejo Tequila
Silver 100% Blue Agave
Color: A rich, silver body with a brilliant touch of gold.
Aroma: Barrel-aged for 12 months to bring forth a bouquet of vanilla, caramel, dark chocolate, and coconut, blended with rich agave and mint as well as fruity hints of orange, peach, and cherry for an intriguing character.
Taste: Like any classic, age enriches the experience . Cristalino plays like a passionate anthem on the palate, with rising notes of fruit and cedar mellowed with vanilla, caramel and dark chocolate, set to a lingering baseline of cooked agave.
ABV/Net Content: 40%/ 750 ML
had to have the bottle (which is not THAT impressive in person, but adds a fourth star to my review here). As for the booze, well, I like the sweetness and kind of unique cristalino smoothness once the initial mild industrial edge settles away.
Another bottle that I will never open.
An aged tequila that doesn't look aged.... hum. How good can it be? Well, it is a lot better than expected. This is a sweet and smooth tequila like none that I've had before. If this is someones 1st experience drinking tequila, then they have set the bar very high for other tequilas.
