Fina Estampa BlancoWe don't want to make you jealous, but have we ever told you how cool it is that part of our job is tasting tequila? Most people commute to work and listen to their loud mouth bosses all day, then shuffle some paper around. We commute to work, listen to our loud mouth boss, then drink tequila. We're not going to lie - we love it. Anyway, the latest Mexican import we've put on the chopping block is Fina Estampa Blanco.

Color:
Clear

Nose:
Peppery and vegetal, not too harsh and with just the right amount of sass.

Taste:
Mellow and smooth up front with a black peppery finish. It's not too dry or oily, and gives a great, smooth finish with no burn. The overall flavor is more complex than most blancos we've tried (Including Patron...no shit - Ed.), and all in all, the interns have decided that it "completely kicks ass" when drunk straight.

Verdict:
We generally like aged tequilas more than blancos, because we like the oaky taste added during the aging process. When it comes to Fina Estampa, we were enamored with the fresh peppery taste of this blanco, and we can see why people like it so much. Not only that, we can honestly say Fina Estampa has it all - great packaging, great taste and a great buzz, all for a price that's at least ten or fifteen dollars cheaper than comparable tequilas we've tasted.

We liked the combination of fire and refinement in our glass, and we think you will too. This is good stuff, people, and we highly recommend you pick up a bottle whenever you can. Below is a list of the states where you can currently get your hands on a bottle:

Oregon
California
Idaho
Colorado
New Mexico
Michigan
Florida
Georgia
Tennessee
New York
New Jersey
Indiana
Illinois

Good review, though I cannot agree with another man making use of sass as an adjective to describe a tequila.

Just tried a new sake at a food show called Green River Sake out of California. Super smooth and as expected for a Japanese drink, no sass!
