Gran Centenario Anejo Tequila
Another travel away from whisky this time with some Gran Centenario Anejo Tequila couresy of Dave (@whiskydiscovery) from Whisky Discovery .
Dave recently returned from Mexico with a selection of Tequila and is on a one man mission to let people know how good it is. I've never been convinced of Tequila but after a LOT of arm twisting by Dave he sent me a sample and i gave it a try
A shocking thing to admit but my first thought was "yeah that smells like tequila" as it initially doesn't smell much different from the usual Jose Cuervo that i would knock back as a very drunken bum in my late teens.
Given time in the glass though it does mature and more notes are able to come along. Will it make me want to drink Tequila regularly, err no, but i will give it a try more often.
Initially it just reminds me of tequila, giving it time in the glass it takes on a sweeter note, vanilla, some earthy organic notes like walking into the fruit and veg bit of my local morrisons
Smooth and velvety on the initial mouthfeel but grows more and more peppery and spicy. vanilla and cream come out with time.
pepper, spicy and more pepper
