Clase Azul Plata Tequila
Clase Azul is made at Productos Finos de Agave at Nom 1416, in the Jesus Maria region of Arandas in Los Altos (highlands). The blue weber agaves are harvested after 9 years and are slow cooked for 72 hours in traditional masonry ovens before being shredded. Fermentation is done with proprietary yeasts and is then distilled in a copper pot still and triple filtered.
The nose is fruity with papaya, sweet melon, and citrus oils. On the palate, there is a hint of black pepper and vegetal notes, but the dominant character is sweetness, with butterscotch and cream soda notes. Bottled at 40% abv.
