Introducing 1921 Tequila Cream
Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 6, 2010
Today I would like to discuss yet another wonderful spirit which I encountered at the Rocky Mountain Food and Wine Festival, the 1921 Tequila Cream. I will admit that I was a skeptic when the importer for this spirit compared it favourably with other cream liqueurs like Bailey’s Irish Cream, but one sip at the festival, and I was convinced.
1921 Tequila Cream is the only Tequila Cream made in Mexico. It is filled nice cafe mocha flavours and light spices of nutmeg and cinnamon. My Rum Club found it nice when sipped neat, although most web sites I researched recommended using the Cream Tequila in cocktails as a replacement for Irish cream to give the drink a nice Mexican flair.
Ernesto Orozco of Westway L. Ltd. is the importer in my locale, and he was more than happy to supply me with a sample bottle to review. Here is an excerpt from the review:
“…The 1921 Tequila Cream enters the mouth with a surprising and delicious combination of light tequila/agave flavour coupled with rich cream, caramel, mocha coffee and a nutty marzipan. Swimming within the currents of these main flavours are hints of, nutmeg, cinnamon, chocolate and hazelnut. The light nuance of agave tequila rides the currents throughout, but the agave never becomes sharp or aggressive. I find the flavour simply outstanding….”
