Review: Nosotros Blanco Tequila
Nosotros Blanco Tequila was introduced in 2016. Distribution is currently limited, but after being awarded as The Best Tequila at the 2017 San Francisco World Spirit Competition that may change. It is made from 100% blue agave grown in the Lowland and Highland Region. The agave is slow roasted in brick ovens for 60 hours. A German proprietary yeast is used to ferment the agave. The distillation is described as artisan, followed by a chill filtration. The aroma is roasted earthy agave, sweet agave, and whole fresh orange. The sweet agave entry has a soft oily feel. The cooked zucchini entry builds to a juicy orange peak. It fades with frosted vanilla, caramel, and roasted agave. The finish is semidry, warm, oily, briny, and lightly peppered. Nosotros Blanco may be the softest tequila I’ve tasted and I’ve tasted quite a few. By soft I don’t mean soft on flavor or absent heat or sting on the finish, Nosotros is flavorful and while I would describe the finish as smooth there is some heat and sting.
