Talk about a winner! This show has everything: Guts, Brains, Perseverance and ultimately—SUCCESS! Meet the new blanco on the block, “Yeyo” silver. In this informative episode Th’ Lip gets to introduce a brand new tequila to the viewers and the WORLD.
But this is more than just a fun, new product rollout. On this show you’ll get to meet Jon Bullinger, the 27 year-old(!) driving force behind Yeyo. In the special CALL_IN section Jon tells about how he knocked on door after door in Mexico looking for a distillery that was willing to partner with him in making a custom tequila to his exact taste specifications. This is a tequila aficionado’s dream – and it’s all here for you to learn from and take notes about! Welcome, Yeyo!
MUSICAL GUEST: “The Wrecking Crew”!
AGAVE SOURCE: Jalisco highlands
GENERAL TASTING NOTES:
Yeyo has a distinct – yet familiar, classic Highlands nose and taste. You’ll find masses of sweet, cooked agave balanced with a healthy dollop of mineral spice. It finishes somewhat hot with a lasting tongue -spike that is both pleasing and interesting. This is a solid sipper from nose to empty glass. Look for traces of spearmint and pepper in this well-balanced blanco.
