Tequila Review: Herencia de Plata (Reposado)
Posted by Arctic Wolf on November 30, 2009
The Tequila I am reviewing today is Herencia de Plata Tequila Reposado. A sample bottle was provided to me by Westway L. LTD., who is the importer of this spirit in my home province of Alberta. I met the Operations Manager of Westway at the Edmonton Food and Wine Festival and introduced him to my review blog. Two weeks later I was asked to review their Tequila on my site and I was happy to oblige.
Herencia is apparently related to the english word ‘heritage’. And the Herencia does indeed have an impressive heritage. The tequila has been served by Mexican President, Vicente Fox to Queen Elizabeth II; it has won awards internationally as you will see when you read the review; and it was originally produced to commemorate wedding of Juan Garcia, the son of the of the company founder, Manuel Garcia.
I should note that Herencia de Plata Reposado Tequila is also a true 100 % Agave Spirit.
But that s probably enough talk for now, let me include an excerpt from the review:
“…I never imagined tequila could be so clean and crisp as this spirit is. The agave flavour, orange and lime citrus notes, and the hot pepper burst are all wonderfully mixed in a crisp, sharp, but very pleasing combination. The agave is aggressive but not in the punky manner I am accustomed to. This is fresher and sweeter than other tequila I have previously tasted. A very light oil allows the flavours to dance on the palate providing a delightful marzipan which sits under the spicier pepper and citrus….”
