Good tequila. Awesome chiled!
After seeing this product in the HBO show entourage, I had to see what the fuss was about. I decided to order this Tequila for my 40th birthday party and was a huge hit. Very smooth tequila. Good job.
Tequila Avión is a highlands tequila and that's obvious from the first sniff. The floral and sweet aromas typical of highlands tequila are there. We've sat on this review for quite a while now as we wanted to do it justice, Tequila Avión is an incredibly balanced high-end tequila. Now I've been drinking tequila for quite some time so I knew from the first sip that we had a contender on our hands, but it's so balanced that I wanted to be sure that I was picking it all up and we'd do the brand justice. As I swirl the tequila in my Riedel glass I'm seeing quick legs and clear beading on the glass. The aroma is clean and crisp, the agave pepper is subtle with very little alcohol aroma coming off of it. The taste is sweet and light with the quality of the water used in the production of this tequila being very apparent. Avión themselves claim that there are clear mint aromas and flavours in the mix but I just couldn't pick them out. The citrus flavours that are present are surprisingly of pineapple, which was a real pleasure, the finish is soft, smooth with a hint of agave. This is something that I think the current tequila market is going to lap up.
