Herradura Blanco or Silver is a joven (young) tequila from Mexico. As its namesake suggests, Herradura Blanco is a crystal clear tequila like all silver tequilas. However, Herraduras production approach differs in one important respect; Herradura Blanco is aged for 45 days in American white oak barrels, which reduces the spirited harshness present in many other silver tequilas, and helps to balance the flavour. As a result, Herradura Blanco emerges as a soft, but penetrating young tequila with a citrus nose that transfers nicely to the palate.
This is a silver tequila that can be sipped, and adds immeasurable pleasure to a margarita and other tequila cocktails.
Tasting Note: Green and cooked agave aroma with herbal and slightly woody notes. On the palate there is agave, woody notes and slightly citric flavour. Smooth, clean and warming finish.
