Lets Talk Tahona Tequila Flight
Tequila is often talked about in terms of "terrior" meet the tahona, a “Flintstones”-sized volcanic-stone wheel whose job is to crush the roasted agave hearts, separating the sweet juice from the pulp. Slower and less efficient the Tahona Wheel can play an important role in the final flavor profile of the Tequila. This flight includes 3 Blanco expressions created using the Tahona method. Take a sip, see for yourself...
G4 Blanco is produced in the remote highlands of Jalisco by El Pandillo, with the help of a 19,000-pound steamroller-turned-tahona (nicknamed Frankenstein). Master distiller Felipe Camarena churns out an amazing, rustic product that’s intensely herbal with floral and citrus notes that follow through to the next sip.
El Tesoro Blanco is unaged and bottled immediately after distillation to capture the essence of highland blue weber agave. The minerality of the soil and water shines through in this traditional, agave-forward tequila. Fresh agave aromas mixed with honey and a touch of green olive. Sweet flavors are balanced with agave, pepper and subtle green notes. Finishes with hints of white pepper.
Made with the traditional stone Tahona, the San Matias Tahona Blanco is an industry favorite. Bright and floral nose, a post-rain earthiness vibe with a touch of citrus. Medium body, immediately you sense cooked agave with a touch of banana, moving quickly to pepper and a satisfying heat on the roof of the mouth. Relatively brief finish, but there is a hint lingering complexity.
