What does Tequila taste like?

The taste of tequila can vary depending on the type and aging. Blanco tequila is generally spicy and slightly tart, while anejo tequila has a more complex flavor of wood, vanilla and caramel. Generally, however, a 100% agave tequila has a strong and pure flavor of agave and earth, coupled with a hint of citrus. A higher quality tequila will often exhibit notes of vanilla, cinnamon, chocolate, caramel and nuts, often added by the aging process in oak barrels. Some tequilas also show a hint of smokiness, especially those made in mezcal regions. When tasting tequila, a fruity note is often detected, which may come from citrus or tropical fruits such as mango or pineapple. The intense, clean and distinctive flavor of tequila is best enjoyed neat or as part of a simple tequila cocktail. The flavors found in tequila are quite diverse and depend on individual preferences. Therefore, it is recommended to try different brands and ages of tequila to find your own personal favorite and experience the full spectrum of its flavors and notes
