Campeòn K&L Exclusive Blanco Tequila 750ml

SKU #1139404

We've always been fans of the Campeon tequilas, we just always had an issue with the bottle. It didn't fit on our shelves, it didn't fit in our shipping containers, and it didn't have a story or any specifics about the tequila itself. That's when brand owner Lou Palatella asked me to make some suggestions about what we might fix. I ended up getting on a plane to Guadalajara, visiting El Viejito distillery (who helped make Patron for years), and signing off on a special batch of Campeon blanco made just for K&L. I was really impressed with the quality of the El Viejito products and their commitment to sourcing the finest agave from the Highland region. We designed a new label that would list these important statistics about the agave: all sourced from an elevation of 6,931-9,479 feet, and a gravelly, volcanic soil. It's this terroir that plays an important role in the flavor of the Campeon blanco tequila, as Highland agave from that altitude is known for its fruity, spicy flavor. We didn't want the addition of oak to mask these flavors, so we only made a batch of blanco, rather than reposado or anejo. For me, as a retailer and a growing aficionado of tequila, it's important to understand how amazingly pure tequila can be when the agave is of quality, the yeast naturally taken from the agave itself, and no additives or sweeteners are added to mellow the flavor. Our new batch of Campeon is clean, peppery, fruity, and smooth. Unadulterated and delicious. Yum. (David Driscoll)

I love tequila but tend to drink Reposado. This Blanco, made exclusively for K&L, is a treat. Pure and clean with hints of citrus and spice. The finish of pepper and spice is something truly special, that you don't get from most of the blanco in this market. Great for blending but much better just sipping. Get it while you can.

I do not drink tequila often, but when I do, I prefer Campeon K&L Exclusive Blanco. Seriously, though, you don't need to be the most interesting man in the world to appreciate this tequila's spicy, agave character. It's crisp, very pure and clean tasting, and at under $30 this is definitely up there amongst the best values in the spirits department right now.

Blanco Tequila is the purest form and expression of the skill of a Tequila House. There is no wood to soften the edges and hide blemishes, any harshness or bite is apparent right away. The Campeon Blanco shows off just how good pure fresh Agave can taste. When Blue Agave is grown at higher altitude, it takes longer to mature, but lends itself to a more complete Tequila. This Blanco has beautiful freshness, notes of citrus combined with a hint of spice, with a mouth feel that is so texturally pleasing, I am always sadly surprised at how quickly I find my glass empty. A great new partnership for us that holds a bright future for those of us who love well crafted Tequila.

A nice and tasty Tequila that has wonderful citrus like aromas. It is soft and clean tasting with citrus flavors and a subtle hint of spice. It would be great in cocktails but is good enought to drink alone.

This Tequila is so clean, smooth and exciting; I will be comparing this to all other Blanco's from now on. I recommend either sipping this by itself or with a little lime and agave nectar, but nothing more. You don't want to miss out on the complex subtle lime, minerals, and pepper characteristics. Delicioso!
