Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The tequila is crystal clear with a bright, luminescent quality that showcases its purity. When swirled, it leaves a thin coat on the glass, suggesting a silky texture.
The aroma bursts with fresh agave, accompanied by undertones of citrus and slight hints of black pepper. The nose is clean and inviting, indicative of a well-crafted spirit.
Lalo Tequila Blanco is exceedingly smooth on the palate. The agave's natural sweetness is the star, followed by nuanced flavors of citrus fruits like lemon and grapefruit. A mild peppery spice brings a complex edge to the otherwise refreshing profile.
The finish is crisp and remarkably smooth for an unaged spirit, leaving a lingering sweetness and a touch of minerality, reflective of the rich Jalisco terroir.
Though unaged, this tequila has a surprisingly rounded mouthfeel, likely due to meticulous distillation and high-quality agave. It's neither too oily nor too thin, striking an excellent balance.
