Aged in oak barrels for 40 days, Herradura's Blanco is a silver tequila with a difference. There is a pleasant spicy sweetness with a hint of oak. Loads of character.
This is something unusual, a "white" tequila with distinct wood-derived notes, not aged for long enough to be a reposado. The brief aging complements the agave character nicely; rather than smoothing off some of the rough edges, the barrel spice actually accentuates the raw, vegetal character of this tequila, contributing notes of black pepper, coriander, and sandalwood. Great in citrus-based drinks where you want a little more complexity, but a reposado would be out of place.
