Review: Feria de Jalisco Blanco Tequila
Feria de Jalisco Blanco Tequila is made at Grupo Tequilero Weber Distillery by Hugo Yerenas, son of Luis Yerenas a 40 year career Master distiller for Casa Cuervo’s super premiums including 1800. Feria De Jalisco is made from 100% single estate agave, grown for 7-8 years in the Lowland Region. The pinas are slow baked in a traditional stone oven. Once extracted the agave juice is naturally fermented for 72 hours. A Stainless steel/ Copper Alembic double distillation follows.The aroma is baked agave, caramel, lemon, and vanilla. The sweet agave entry has an oily mouth feel. Vanilla arrives, building to a bright lemon citrus peak. It fades with baked agave flavor and finishes warm and semidry with a sprinkle of pepper, charcoal taste, and mineral texture. Master Distiller Luis Yerenas should be very proud of the tequila his son has crafted.
