Day 112 Drink: Tequila Ocho 2009 Plata, Las Pomez
Tequila Ocho is made from agave sourced from "single estates," a piece of land from the Camarena family's holdings with its own micro climate. The distillery believes that terroir exists with agave as much as it does with grapes and this new program from Tequila Ocho is designed to showcase the differences.
Tequila Ocho 2009 Plata, Las Pomez has a full agave nose with a hint of sweetness around the edge. Flavor is bright with hints of citrus and spice. The drink ends with just a hint of fresh cut grass.
