Review: Don Julio Blanco Tequila
Posted by Arctic Wolf on August 16, 2011
Don Julio Blanco Tequila is a 100% Blue Weber Agave Tequila made from agave grown in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. As a highland tequila,we can expect the Don Julio to exhibit strong fruity citrus notes and to have a little hot pepper in the finish. The company was established by Don Julio González, who apparently began to examine the prospect of making his own Tequila in 1942. He established his distillery called, La Primavera, and spent nearly forty years refining his Tequila into the spirit which now bears his name.
I first encountered Don Julio Blanco at the May 5 (Cinco de Mayo) Tequila Tasting at Aligra Wine and Spirits in Edmonton. I enjoyed the crisp taste and decided that this was a bottle I would not mind acquiring and reviewing on my website.
Here is an Excerpt from my review:
“…Soft peppery notes come forward out of the glass, followed by lemon and lime citrus juices. Muted fruity agave and a hint of vanilla waft into the air as well providing just a little more softness and I must admit the aroma has made me eager to begin to taste the spirit…”
