Review: Don Julio Blanco Tequila

Posted by Arctic Wolf on April 21, 2020

Don Julio 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.

The identified NOM on the back label of the bottle is 1449 CRT. This NOM identifier is required by the Mexican Government to be placed on the label of each bottle of tequila to verify that it is produced legally from agave sourced in the Tequila region of Mexico. Each distillery has its own NOM, and by researching this we can discover exactly which distillery produces each brand of tequila. It came as no surprise to me to discover that the Don Julio Brand is produced at the Don Julio Tequila Distillery located in Atotonilco, Jalisco. This distillery also produces the 3 Magueyes tequila brand.

Here is a link to the review:

Review: Don Julio Blanco Tequila

“… 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. I allowed the glass to breathe, and the aroma did not change significantly. I was hoping the agave notes would grow in the glass, but the scent remained quite mellow …”

I hope you enjoy the review which concludes with two cocktail suggestions, the Paloma and the Don Julio Margarita.

Chimo!
