El Tesoro Platinum
Hailing from the heart of tequila country, El Tesoro takes care to use many older, traditional methods in producing their tequila. They are one of a small number of distilleries (of any type of alcohol) that distil right to the 80 proof it is bottled at, instead of distilling to a higher proof and cutting the resulting product with water. The result is a deliciously herbaceous, earthy, and smooth tequila. It boasts aromas of earthy agave, smoke, and light citrus, then follows on the palate with a full bodied sweetness. Very much herbaceous, with white pepper and lemon accompaniment, and another long, spicy finish.
