Demetrio Blanco Tequila
Recommended By: Brian West, Alcoholmanac Magazine
One of the newest tequilas in the Milwaukee market, Demetrio immediately caught my eye. Their top shelf, premium quality tequilas have quickly become one of my favorites. It doesn’t hurt, either, that Demetrio is extremely active in a number of charity organizations, donating a portion of their profits from each bottle as well as regularly sponsoring events and fundraisers for charities across the US.
Demetrio starts with a big poblano pepper nose, with notes of dry earth and clay. In many ways, it reminds me of the smell of a dry cave. The taste mirrors the aroma for the most part. A spicy pepper character is mingled with a minerality and pleasant, subtle vegetal characteristics. Demetrio finishes long and super smooth, its pleasant minerality and rounded root flavors lingering minutes after each sip. Demetrio, specifically the blanco, is a perfect example of terroir in tequila. One sip and you are instantly transported to the Mexican desert. Figuratively, of course. That would be weird, otherwise.
