Riazul Plata Tequila
Barreled for 15 days in Neutral Oak Barrels, our Plata (Blanco) represents the most traditional form of tequila. Because it is barreled for a short period of time, the Plata is the choice of tequila purists who seek the unmasked agave character and the influences of the land of origin. The long maturing agave achieves the highest quality fructose and reveals the unique aromas and flavors indigenous to the Jalisco highlands. Best for mixing, served chilled or on the rocks, never frozen or on its own, with no salt or lime needed. Great in margaritas, Palomas, etc. Found everywhere from small family owned taquerias to fine dining. Pure and transparent, barreled for 15 days in Neutral Oak Barrels following distillation before being bottled. Unique aromas and flavors indigenous to the Jalisco highlands. Bold in flavor, earthy, herbal, buttery, agave, hints of vanilla, and floral. On the finish is a mild chocolate aftertaste.
Distinctly sweet scent, vanilla forward, marshmallow, cocoa. Same on palate, finishing with white pepper and ginger tingle, faint hint of grapefruit peel and jalapeño. It's a little too sugary-sweet, but the barrel-aged versions amp up warmer tones.
