For Tequila Tusedays this week we have Tecnico, from the Jalisco Highlands.
Tequila Tecnico is a worthy member of our team of champions or parejas increibles (incredible pair). Produced from 100% Blue Agave in the Highlands of Jalisco, it honors the very spirit of Tecnico's character - noble, refined and elegant in style. This carefully elaborated tequila offers unparalleled smoothness and depth of flavor, which will satisfy even the most sophisticated palate. They age their tequila in white oaks bourbon barrels until alcohol mellows and the flavors of blue agave are perfectly married to the subtle toasted notes from the wood.
Tecnico Blanco is 100% Weber Blue Agave tequila, produced according to the traditional methods stemming back hundreds of years. Not aged in wooded casks by definition, Blanco packs the strongest punch of agave flavors. Tecnico Blanco "has a satiny lightweight body and a lingering, lightly peppered finish"
Tecnico Reposado Elaborated from the sought-after blue agaves grown in the Los Altos area, Tecnico Reposado is a formidable opponent for any competitor. Tecnico Reposado is aged in charred, American white oak barrels for a minimum of 4 months. It has a "lustrous amber hue, a satiny body and a spice and citrus bouquet. It is a marvelous spirits ideal for sipping neat or using in a classic cocktail" (Robert Plotkin, American Cocktails).
Tecnico Anejo is an unstoppable force, which will win you over. Elaborated from 100% blue agave by artisanal methods and matured for an impressive 18 months period in white oak bourbon barrels, this is an ultimate sipping tequila. Rated 92 (outstanding score) by Anthony Dias Blue, the founder of San Francisco World Spirits Competition).
