First you must choose your favorite tequila. Once you have made your selection, you should consider the glass for this, since it does not matter where you will drink it. Thus, white tequila can be served in the typical caballito, tequila reposado in a copa cogñaquera and for tequila añejo is the perfect glass that is usually used for tequila, the Reidel glass.
A stopped glass, begins observing its color, if it has sediments or is cloudy, take the glass and spin the tequila, check that on the edge of the glass there are shades of silver or gold depending on the type of tequila; also if it has a good structure, you will notice how after shaking the drops are falling through the glass in a very slow way.
Then you should put the glass under your nose and inhale deeply to identify the predominant aromas: agave, fruity, mint, floral, wood, citrus or almond tones. Try to describe it. According to the experts, there are up to 50 different aromas.
Then you should proceed to drink it, but little by little, that is to say a single sip. So that the taste buds are impregnated and the body feels what it receives. In this way you will taste all the flavors of our distillate. If the product is good, it will have a pleasant and durable end of mouth. It's as simple as "I like it" vs. "I do not like it".
