Tequila Tuesday: Lapis Platinum Tequila

For this Tequila Tuesday we are going to taste Lapis Platinum Tequila (click the link good info, no need to repeat). 

The aromas are earthy with scents of caramelized agave, blanched almonds, vanilla, mild citrus, flowers and a touch of pepper. These are evocative scents, but are very delicate and become more apparent after the first sip.
At first sip there is a pleasant warmth that is very cleansing. The flavors are also better understood after a second nosing. The tastes begin by restating the aromas in dry deliberation and build to include rice water, cardamon toasted nuts and honey water.

I said this when I wrote up the añejo: "When the first sipping is re-informed by another nosing and then turned into a full taste, not only were the tempting aromas amplified, but it seems that the palate is now attenuated to the delicate layers flavor." This delicate profile is obviously intend and well executed.

The finish is crisp and layered replaying the flavors with a nice warmth that stays with you a while. I say warmth, but it is more like a cooling warmth??? Which really doesn't make sense. There also a surprising bit minty-ness in the after taste. Which upon reading the añejo review I notices also.

Lapis Platinum is an outstanding tequila. You easily sip it or make a delectable, spirit forward beverage.

Try this tequila neat at room temperature.

Lapis Platinum also won a Gold at the 2013 Craft Spirits Award . . .
