Fortaleza Blanco Still Strength tequila has aromas of fruit, baked fully-ripened agave, green olive, and earth are invitingly present. Slightly brighter and a touch more rustic than the regular blanco, the accents of butter, olive, earth, black pepper, and vegetal qualities in the flavor are enhanced because it comes straight from their small copper pot still, without adding water prior to bottling.
For years, the only way to sample this tequila was to visit the distillery in Tequila, Jalisco. Until now.
