Our journey into tequila tasting continues with Milagro silver tequila which we have sampled several times before this tasting for the website, even using it during the San Antonio Margarita Meltdown last August. They were a sponsor of the event and it was used exclusively by all of the participants into the margarita competition.
According to their website, this 100% blue agave tequila is triple distilled, a method that removes impurities and refines its character. It comes in a slender bottle colored blue on top fading down to clear and back to blue. The shape and colors tend to catch our eye when browsing the many tequilas at the liquor store. It seems to be readily available throughout Texas.
Sipping it straight left a slight alcohol burn on our lips and agave on the tongue. A slight black pepper makes is presence throughout. No distinguishing flavors really stood out that you can get with higher end blancos.
Milagro costs around $26 for a 750ml at various liquor stores in Texas. We have seen places selling it for only $19.99 which put its on the low end price-wise for a 100% blue agave blanco tequila. This is an affordable tequila that appears to be intended for making margaritas and other cocktails. Overall, if your a looking for an inexpensive mixing tequila, Milagro is good choice.
