While the panel’s favorites were complex, elemental and intriguing, we were troubled by a lack of intensity in many of the bottles as well as by a sense of artificiality in some. As Florence put it, we found a great divide between those tequilas we liked
Admittedly, I like aged tequilas better than blancos in most instances, but I really appreciate the clean, spicy and earthy flavors of a good blanco.
