Review: Camarena Silver Tequila
Posted by Arctic Wolf on May 13, 2016
Camarena is a relatively new tequila brand launched in 2010 by six generation tequila producer, Familia Camarena. The spirit is produced at the Tequila Supremo Distillery (Nom 1456 CRT) and is apparently distributed throughout North America by E.& J. Gallo Winery.
The Camerena Silver Tequila is produced from 100% Blue Weber agaves, grown in the rich red clay and cool climate of the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico. As a Highland Tequila, we can expect Camarena to exhibit strong fruity citrus notes and to have a little hot pepper in the delivery and in the finish. (This is as opposed to lowland tequila which has strong earthy flavours of agave and less hot pepper.)
Here is a link to my full review:
“… I discovered a heated agave aroma with spicy white pepper scents rising into the breezes above the glass. There is a very evident vegetal earthiness apparent which warns me that this spirit is going to have a fruity agave punch to go along with its overt spiciness. Fortunately, I also notice some soothing menthol-like aromas which may salvage my tonsils …”
