Legit smells like maple syrup, as a Canadian I appreciate the effort, as a tequila lover, I shutter slightly. My mom used to buy caramel in a tin can for me to spread on my ice cream, this instantly takes me back to those days. This is going to have some commercial appeal, it’s exactly what novice tequila drinkers seem to be loving, I wish them great success.
Smells like I just walked into a bakery, my mouth immediately started watering, smells like a fresh eclair. Turns out it also tastes like an eclair, crème anglaise, vanilla, butter, pastry, everything except agave.
Nose is on point, roasted agave, not overpowering. I’m getting some kind of banana sugar thing going on, it’s too bad because it’s wrestling with the agave that’s fighting to get out. Finish profiles agave forward, disappears quite fast, it’s my favourite part. Modern style, I’m sure it will find its followers.
I can’t get anything on the nose here, aroma is lacking and disappointing. Flavor is similarly faint, with some slight vanilla cookie dough. Finish is underwhelming. In summary: this will disappoint a tequila aficionado, but newbies may appreciate the lack of aroma and flavor.
Faint nose, fruity, floral aromas with light mouthfeel, slight soapy, maybe minty flavor.
Stars are following in the footsteps of George Clooney's hit with Casamigos, and the spirit may not be better for it.
Lou does a video review of Villa One Tequila Silver.
Is this a trend that’s driven purely by financial incentives, whether to cash in like Clooney and company, or to profit from America’s increasing appreciation of the spirit?
Following the landmark success of George Clooney’s tequila brand Casamigos, a crop of celebrities have tried to mimic its popularity with their own labels in the US.
Just plain bad... I'll leave it at that.
