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.

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.

Bold on the nose. Oily on the palate. Slightly harsh chemical flavor with a mild burn on the end. Bad aftertaste. Below average and nothing worth trying again.

Spiciness is desirable and I feel pleasant sharpness. I like the balance of tastes and this is what made me into blanco.

Not bad. Slight oakiness and fruitiness. Uncomplicated finish.

Has a nutty flavour, not too sweet, agave presence could be a little more prominent but overall an OK Tequila, you candrink it on the rocks but apts better for mixing margaritas. For 26 € a solid product.

aroma is sweet with a little funk sweet on the pallet with some minerals shining through smooth and creamy (coating) mouth feel

On the nose: Agave, citrus, pepper, and some alcohol- mild flavors. On the palate: Agave, anise, black pepper up front. On the back end, anise and cinnamon. Not bold or complex. Decent for sipping, but better as a mixer...just not priced competitive as either one.

Smooth with an unexpected but enjoyable grassy flavor note front and center. Could be EXCELLENT in a light summer cocktail, in the same vein as a cucumber & lime vodka drink.

Excellent Blanco at a good price. Nice flavor of agave and smooth finish. Slight peppery finish. Maybe not as peppery as I’d like but very good example of a quality blanco.

New to tequila, but so far I'm liking the flavor profile of Herradura Silver. Tried Olmeco Altos and I like this one better.

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

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.
