  • Excerpt: Does tequila need to be 110 proof? No, but does it hurt? A gorgeous, lush, and totally unexpected experience, this is a tequila to seek out and savor as a sipper — yet would also make one hell of a margarita.

  • Intro:

    Produced via NOM1139 (La Altena), Tapatio Blanco 110 is a fairly high proof, unaged tequila offered as part of the extensive Tequila Tapatio family.

  • Nose:

    Lovely and bright on the nose. Rock candy, confectioners sugar, light smoke and pepper. Sweet cream and honey, faint citrus, a bold papaya note. It’s really notable just how much agave comes through on the nose, this is honestly a pour I could smell all day.

  • Taste:

    Viscous on the palate, rich and savory. Sweet cream, plum, rock candy once more. Big fruit character - berry, papaya, light lime zest. Salinity and pepper balance out, the ethanol is present but only just so.

  • Finish:

    Long finish. Intense and complex. Pepper, light ash, bold agave sweetness in the form of honey, gummy bear candies and spice drops.

  • Overall:

    Wowzers - it’s incredible just how much character Tapatio 110 displays over lower proof offerings, and while it can be tough to find, enjoying it is reward enough if you can track down a bottle.
