About this deal

On to the 100% Agave Mezcal – Reposado flight, and a Gold medal was awarded to Zignum Reposado, with an “enticing vanilla sweetness” on the palate. Señorío Reposado received a Silver in this flight. Each was tried neat and blind, to avoid brand bias, allowing the full flavours — fresh citrus to warming oak — to shine through. They were on the lookout for smooth, easy-drinking styles, with well-balanced sweetness and added complexity.

At the top end of the price spectrum, another Master was discovered: El Tequileño Añejo Gran Reserva. “It has very good notes of oak, cinnamon and caramel from the barrels,” commented Gomez. “For me, when I move to añejos, those producers and brands have to properly balance the oak elements with the agave. Here, this was done exceptionally well.” La principal característica de Olmeca es que "Tahona" se agrega a todas las variedades de este tequila y le da un sabor específico con ligeras notas cítricas.

El Tequileño Reposado received a Gold medal in this round. “Reposado can be from two months old, so the colour was very light but you get complexity, green notes and you can taste strong agave notes,” Gomez said. “You get the aged notes, the caramel from the barrel, but very subtle, it doesn’t overpower the Tequila.” In the following flight, Mixto Tequila – Reposado, a Gold medal was awarded to Tequila Olmeca Reposado, with its “caramel and woody aromas” and “great mouthfeel”, which led to an overall “nicely rounded Tequila”. A Silver medal was delivered to Sierra Tequila Reposado. “This had some nice vegetal notes that were well balanced with the wood and caramel,” noted Gomez.

Reflecting on the 2021 tasting and the standard of entries, Gomez noted the resilience of Tequila and mezcal to continue to connect with consumers – particularly given the challenges of 2020. Los jeroglíficos con los que está decorada la botella de tequila son letras olmecas, aún no descifradas por los científicos. Y el indio en la etiqueta no es una estilización, sino un retrato del olmeca real. En 1930, los arqueólogos en las excavaciones en Tres-Zapotes encontraron una cabeza gigante. Un escultor olmeca desconocido con gran precisión pasó rasgos y expresiones faciales. La imagen de esta cabeza se colocó en la etiqueta "Olmec".

These were good representations of Tequila at this price.”
