Welcome to another glorious Table Bottle Tuesday!
In this week’s Table Bottle Tuesday full review and rating I feature Arette Tequila/Tequila Arrete out of NOM 1109 handcrafted blanco suave expression.
I may make the rating short and sweet on this one because honestly it has me thinking….
Is this the best blanco I’ve ever had?
Now granted and admittedly I haven’t had as many blancos as I’ve had añejos and extra añejos.
But I’ve had a hell of a lot of them and I know a good one when I taste it!
And this one right here……. I dont know, but I’m just saying.
Let’s get down to business though!
So when I found this bottle I actually was looking for something completely different to buy for football Sunday and just said why the hell not try it out!
It was $45 out the door for the exact bottles I bought, yes it was so good that I went back and bought the last bottle they had in the store.
I wasn’t able to find the exact bottle I picked up that says “handcrafted blanco suave” when I searched for it online though.
However, I did find the Tequila Arette artisanal blanco suave online at oldtowntequila.com for $49.99 before tax & shipping.
I’ll reach out to Tequila Arette to see if there’s a difference between the handcrafted blanco suave and the artisanal blanco suave.
If there is then you bets believe I’ll be trying and rating the artisanal edition of their blanco as well!
Recommended Ways To Enjoy
This is a neat sipper for me through and through!
I would honestly feel like someone is disrespecting my tequila if they dared to put this on ice in front of me!
Like no joke, you can never have any of my good tequila again if you ever said to me you want this on ice.
Ask the people who drink with me often, I’m well known for handing down that sentence.
Low key though….
This would certainly make for an amazing fancy swanky cocktail that one of these professional mixologist (not bartenders) can mix up at a high end dinner party.
I’d honestly feel obligated to have a suit on to sip it.
That’s the only way I would ever allow it to be enjoyed in any other way but neat in my presence.
Rating– Top Shelf
Do you even need to ask what I’m rating this bottle at this point?
Oh I get it.
You’re one of those people who skipped all the way down to the bottom without reading the full review just to get to the best part.
Ok man, here you go!
Top Shelf All Day Every Day!
You happy now big shot?!?!?!
Honestly, I’ve absolutely loved every single expression I’ve had of Tequila Arette so far.
So I’ll definitely be on the hunt for as many of their bottles I can get my hands on at a reasonable price and walk out the door with.
Tasting Category– Agave forward tequila
This one is jammed packed with fresh agave and amazing vegetable earthy greatness!
The pepper is just the perfect amount of seasoning to bring it all together.
Nice sweetness from the fresh agave with a delicious fresh water shining through as well.
The citrus is on point too!
Hard to put it in one particular taste category, but if I was forced to decided…..
Agave Forward Tequila would be the best overall category for me to place it in!
This could go into at least 2 other flavor categories for sure, one of which I need to add to the Taste Of Tequila field, I’ll do so when I find a couple more that fit it though.
In the mean time and in between time, check out the photos below to see exactly what bottle to pick up on your next trip to the store or order online.
Bottle Photos & Social Media Post
So if you’re one of those people who just completely ignores all the writing just to look for the YouTube link…..
Well here you go!
Enjoy the video review of what I stated above….
Less details of course!
Cheers TLA Fam!
