Pronounced ‘Tes-Zon’, this 100% agave tequila is named after ‘Tezontle’, the volcanic stone from which tahona wheels are made. Coincidently and rather fittingly, the name also means ‘with intensity’ in Spanish. The hand-blown and finished bottle originally had pewter metal plates on each side embossed with four symbols that represent Teźon’s production process: an agave plant, fire (symbolising the slow roasting), a tahona stone and the ‘spirit’ of Teźon. The bottle is finished with a black resin stopper, again representing the tahona stone used in this Tequilas production.
Olmeca Tezón launched in the U.S. in August 2005 and in the UK the following March.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 31/03/2013
(bot No. R25906) Clear, pale golden.
A nose of vanilla, milk chocolate covered sultanas, bay leaves and caramel.
Fresh agave, green apple skin toffee apple, creamy vanilla/butterscotch and elegant smoky pepper spice with coffee and chocolate.
Long, fruity (pear), sweet, smoky finish. This very clean, characterful reposado has much less pepper and spice than is evident in its blanco sibling.
