Review 46: Jose Cuervo Tradicional Silver

Review 46
Jose Cuervo Tradicional Silver: 40% abv

Alright. Here's tequila. This is a silver tequila, which means it is not aged. So look past the stupid bottle. This is the nicer version of the regular Jose Cuervo. In essence, this tequila is 100% pure agave, which is a good thing. Not much to say beyond this, so on to the tasting notes. On the nose, one can gather slight smells of jalapeƱo, honey, lemon, cantaloupe, sea weed, and the obvious agave. It should be noted that the subtleties in tequila are much different than any other spirit, so these might not be apparent in first tasting. On the taste, one can smell honey, agave, malt, sweet tea, citrus, nut, and pineapple. There aren't huge flavors in this tequila, but this at least shows a great balance. On the finish, one can take away cinnamon, honey, the slight taste of cigar, and malt. The finish is medium short as well. Overall, this tequila is basic, but nice for the price. Worth getting over the regular Jose Cuervo line. 
Score: 7.0/10
