GENERAL TASTING NOTES:
Milagro silver is a textbook example of the library of tastes and flavor profiles that define a highlands tequila. You’ll find spiky alcohol spices, a big “floral” cloud and a lot of herbaceous notes in this unaged tequila. But don’t look for subtlety or a complex balance. Milagro silver has all of these flavors turned up to “11” on the dial and they’re not interested in your sensitive palate. They all scream in unison, and if you can’t take the volume, then too bad for YOU! The reposado brings a watery addition of *some* wood notes, but they’re quite buried in the mix of flavors. Lippy found himself searching for a more singular statement in the repo and never found one. The anejo brings a lot more of the wooded notes that were only hinted at in the repo, but the balance and complexity of the flavors don’t reward any deep inspection. This anejo is a great (and inexpensive) tequila to bring to parties and lay on “Newbies” who will relish in its sweet and smooth notes. For the rest of us, stick to the under $20 silver for a sipper in a pinch and a Margarita standard for sure!
