Best Premium Blanco Tequila - 2013

 

The Great Tequila Tasting 2013 - Blanco

 

Tasting Method: Strict tasting rules were applied. The order of service was established beforehand by lottery. The blanco tequilas were served "blind". Each were poured into fresh glasses from new sealed bottles, and served at slightly above room temperature. Only ice water and neutral unflavored, unsalted bar snacks were available to cleanse the palate. The judges tasted through 4 flights of 7 tequilas plus 1 flight of 2 tequilas; with food served during a rest period after the second flight.

Impressions of each individual product were written down by the judges on score sheets. The scoring was done on a 5-point system, with 5 as the best. Double-Gold, Gold and Silver medals are awarded based on a set range of final point scores received from the judges. Due to the judges' unusually high scores for this blanco tequila tasting, there were no Bronze medals awarded. The tasting notes are summaries of the judges’ opinions, with all replicated commentary eliminated.
