Artenom 1579 100% Agave Blanco Tequila 750ml (Mexico)
Rancho El Olvido in Jesús-María (elev. 6,200′) is tequila’s highest altitude distillery, producing small artisan batches of bright, intensely aromatic tequila, owing to porous soil that “stresses” the agave plants to create a rich agave flavour.
Tasting Notes: Tequila Artenom 1579 Blanco is loaded with cooked agave from aroma to finish. The aromas highlight a lovely fruity character from ripe citrus all the way to tropical fruits. These fruit aromas are laced with a minerality that is difficult to separate until you taste it. The flavors begin with a soft, clean natural sweetness that reveals the fruit again but highlights bright stones, slight-sapid pepper, and minty freshness. The rich mouthfeel carries these lovely complexities in a brilliant balance that carry all the way through to the lingering finish.
