Best Reposado Tequila - 2012

 

The Fifty Best Reposado Tequila Tasting 2012

 

The Tasting:
The Fifty Best held a “blind” tasting of 14 reposado tequilas with 18 pre-qualified judges. Strict tasting rules were applied. The order of service was established beforehand by lottery. Each of the tequilas were poured into fresh glasses from new sealed bottles, and served at slightly above room temperature. Only ice water and neutral unflavored nuts and crackers were available to cleanse the palate. The judges tasted through 2 flights of 7 tequilas each.

The judges wrote down their impressions of each product 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.

The tasting notes are summaries of the judges’ opinions.

Gentlemen What a wonderful job you did in selecting the best of Tequila " Silver ", outstanding. One thing I am missing is the price structure of the different products. This would really give us old history " the best must not always be the most expensive " Cheers, Werner G. Butz
