Although this new tequila is from established maker 1800, the most important number to keep in mind is 100.
Tired of all those premium tequilas weighing in at a mere 80 proof? I’m not, but for those who want a little more bang in their margaritas, 1800 Tequila released a 100 proof blanco. 1800 Select Silver Tequila has found a nice balance of high alcohol content and smooth, silver tequila that is impressive, mixable and a nice addition to the brand’s portfolio.
1800 Select Silver Tequila is claimed as “the world’s smoothest 100 proof, 100 percent Agave super premium Tequila.” The tequila comes packaged in a big glass bottle with a glass stopper that doubles as a shot glass (nice!). Unlike most silvers, 1800 blends in a touch of aged tequila to give it added depth of character without sacrificing its crystal-clear color. If you’re accustomed to downing shots of 80-proof tequila, rest assured that the bump up to 100 proof is most definitely noticeable.
Here’s the thing; the taste is fantastic. The blend of clear silver with a hint of more robust aged tequila produces a sensory delight that will make you want to go back for more even as you’re fighting back tears from that first shot. You’re guaranteed to feel completely alive and invigorated as you experience this new concoction, just take it easy since that 100 proof could sneak up on you quickly.
