Notes: 1800 Silver Tequila is aged in primarily American Oak barrels with a small amount of French Oak for about 15 days. To true Silver Tequila fans ANY contact with wood is anathema, but this tequila has one of the shorter stays. It is made from 100% Agave- which is unusual for this this price- most of the tequila you find at this price (and certainly below) is NOT 100% agave but blended tequila- the stuff that all those college tequila stories are made of.
Appearance: Very slight, less than totally clear coloration, leaves even coat on swirling.
First Impression: Not overly aromatic, sea salt, and slightly antiseptic smell.
Taste: Sweetish, agave sap, slightly thick, waxy mouth feel, dry finish.
Drinks: Margaritas of course, and Tequila Sunrises. Sweetish taste is good for people who don’t like wood. Distinctive, but not overwhelming in both drinks. Unlike the higher priced Anejo, it stands out against any mixer. As a shot it is probably too smooth to be safe. Especially if last call is aways away.
