Sol Azul Reposado Tequila Review

Aged Silver Tequila from Mexico
80 Proof (40% ABV)

It's no secret we like our liquors well-aged. Of course, it's a good thing we're not expected to age it ourselves - liquors in our collection don't have a very long half life to say the least. The latest pre-aged booze we've gotten our mitts on is Sol Azul Reposado Tequila - we've tasted it and re-tasted it over the last month or so, and formed a few thoughts. For starters, we have to tell you the bottle looks like something I Dream of Jeannie should pop out of. But does this bottle's contents have the magic we're looking for? Read on to find out.
The bottle is one of the most striking we've seen in a while - a blue bottle that, as we said, looks like it should be home to a genie. It's cool looking and a conversation piece.
A light, airy nose with a saline back end, it puts us in the mind of the ocean...a very nice scent.
We like Sol Azul. The flavor is light and crisp, and has a clean salinity that we attribute to good Tequilas. The only downside we saw is the flavor doesn't last for long - it's kind of here today, gone tomorrow. We were hoping the taste would linger for longer, but we soon found a remedy for that problem - keep drinking it.
We dug it and recommend you give it a try. We didn't find the flavor to be as exciting as Fina Estampa, but we did like it. It's worth a try if you're in New Mexico, and keep an eye out for it to start being available in other states as time goes on.
