My first tequila was found through the usual means of reviews and deep data dives. I decided on Olmeca Altos Blanco (as well as the Reposado). I bought one each in the 375ml size. These are 100% Blue Agave tequila. These are my first (and so far only) tequilas.
The agave flavor really comes through. The only way I knew what agave tasted like, was that I had also purchased agave nectar and knew the smell and taste. I also know it isn’t my favorite taste, but I can tolerate cocktails made with tequila. I did like the reposado (rested, aged in barrel for a period of time) better than the blanco (white, unaged).
Proof: 80 (40% ABV)
Paid: $10 for 375ml
