Review: Silver Coin Tequila
Silver Coin Tequila Silver - 40%
A blanco out of NOM 1468 which contract distills some very well respected distillate - Alquimia, LALO, PM Spirits tequila. I've enjoyed expressions from each of those brands. Silver Coin is traditionally made utilizing a horno and roller mill. According to the blurb on Old Town Tequila, Silver Coin is distilled to proof (big fan of this practice) and rested in used whiskey barrels for 30 days before bottling.
Notes: Crisp and bright on the nose. Lots of minerality and spring florals - heavy pollens. Palate is very similar pollen, minerality with the addition of some pear and citrus. Reminds me of a lighter version of Calle Criollo. The structure is gentle and balanced - medium weight with a light spike mid. Clean, brief finish.
Score: 6 (Above Average) Enjoyable and approachable sipper. Less bold than I expected at still strength. But the profile aligns with the stated aims of the product as "smooth" was a buzz word in most of the ad copy. All in all, a great bargain pour if you find it for the thirty bucks it originally sold for.
