One of the first tequilas that I loved, that bubblegum taste in the background can be recognized a mile away. Green and black peppercorn, citrus rind, yummy all around!

Nose: Almost a dusty suggestion. Lemon, pepper, alcohol and fruitiness. Taste: Agave, anise, cinnamon, sweet notes and black pepper.

I'm surprised I never rated this tequila until today! Great brand. Ok for sipping, but best mixed.

slight burn on the nose overwhelmed by cooked agave, vanilla and pepper. nice aroma. slight antiseptic taste but eventually I find the fruit and pepper. long finish of alcohol.

Bottled on 06/06/01. Slight tint to this as it must have rested for a short time prior to bottling. Big agave nose, oily mouthfeel and just nice overall. I wish Herradura would get back to making tequila like this. Losing the diffusor is a start.

Rated blind after aeration. Glass: sheets to lots of small pearls and short legs. Aroma: grass, agave, alcohol. Entry is thin and slightly sweet, quickly changing to a hit of green agave, and bursts into huge pepper that recedes quickly leaving light pepper, moist and slightly numb.

Now that I'm all about Blancos I've come to appreciate this one a little more...

Since I taste these tequilas blind, I do this whole rating things backward. I profile first then I do the basic rating. The nose was pretty standard, nothing to write home about. The flavor profile however, did not really match up with the aromas. On top of that it has a funky-chemically thing that first hits the palate then fades into a lot of bitter notes. While the texture was soft and in the end it was an "easy tequila to drink", the bitterness really put me off. When I found out that this was Herradura (which was poured from THE bottle that was served to the 2011 Spirits of Mexico Tasting Judges), I was actually surprised as this blanco tasted and smelled better than my previous experience with this blanco - which was as a judge at the 2011 New Mexico Intimate Tequila Tasting. Great history, tradition, and Hacienda San Jose del Refugio is beautiful, I'm just wish Herradura would put product before profit.

smooth agave taste with a mild peppery finish and slight citrus twist my goto for a perfect lime and agave nectar mix

My bottle is called "Plata", not Silver. Bought in Germany. Rest of the look is the same.

From 2000. Lot 42. Rather green and fruity on the nose. Some light floral notes and raw agave. Bright and tropical. Cool, lightly sweet, and green on the palate. Not much agave. Spikes quickly, then dissipates just as fast. Some light herbal notes transition to white pepper. Never real bold, nor complex. Quite thin in mouthfeel. Doesn't coat the mouth or really weigh on the tongue. Rather quick, dry finish. An enjoyable, though far from earth-shattering blanco. Easy drinking, but not very bold in flavor, this is beginner friendly and short of a mist have for a seasoned tequila drinker. If you find some for decent $$$, grab it, but don't feel bad if those one eludes you.

There is nothing that sets this out ahead of other tequilas in its price range or even lower. just sort of blah. I was disappointed and used it to mix margaritas.

Aroma of cooked agave, pineapple and pepper. Flavor of agave and pepper. Medium finish.

Tequila reminds me of my (old) era. Simply, the bottle is cool. That's not enough. Since there is Los Abueros next to it, the difference in quality is clear when compared to drinking. But love, cheap and always beside.

Citrusey & minty. Slight Peppery finish. Big brother to El Jimador, overall not bad. Would drink again. Would not be the first, second or third choice to buy.

Armonic, cooked agave, silky, butter, mint, complex. Neat or mix this is a great.

Much complexity for a blanco. There is a long lasting finish and aftertaste that some have described as bubble gum and that is as close as I could suggest. Not mind blowing but very enjoyable and sippable.

Review #162 - Herradura Silver Tequila Blanco

This many reviews and I've never review a tequila from the Herradura line? That doesn't seem possible. It's about time I got around to doing it...and it tells you how many wonderful tequilas there are out there.
