Siete Leguas Blanco Tequila (750ml)

SKU #1039674 94 points Wine Enthusiast

 Zesty and spicy, this highlands Tequila shows dried herbs, jalapeño, lemon peel and black pepper, all wrapped up in a clean finish. The alcohol levels feel surprisingly restrained for a blanco. Consider pairing alongside rich or fried foods. (KN)  (5/2014)

K&L Notes

91 points Beverage Tasting Institute and a Gold Medal from the International Review of Spirits: "Clear. Bloomy cheese rind, prairie grass with wild flowers, and honeyed date aromas. A soft, round entry leads to a dry medium body of dried flower, dusty mineral, and powdered sugared date and yam flavors. Finishes with a lightly fruity pepper and a mineral fade with warming heat." (07/08)

The Siete Leguas Blanco stands as a pillar among all spirits. Proof that agave can produce spirits unlike almost any other spirit in that they can be superlatively good without the addition of any flavoring, aging or adulteration of any kind. I'd put the 7 Leguas Blanco up at the top of my list of wonderful white spirits along with other great authentically produced tequilas like El Tesoro, Tapatio and Fortaleza. I'm not a complete purist though as this tequila is not 100% Tahona press like the Fortaleza, but the exquisite character, supreme drinkability and obvious quality sets 7 Leguas apart from only the very best competitors. The nose is strongly floral (honeysuckle and rose hips) and surprisingly less fruity than the reposado yet showing plenty of gorgeous green agave notes and easy earthy pepper. On the palate the fruit is turned up before moving back toward this earthy almost green tea flavor. This is NOT tequila for vodka drinkers, but does stand out (as it always has) as one of the most exciting spirits in the store at any price.
