Review: AsomBroso Blanco Tequila
OK, there’s no getting around it. AsomBroso comes in a bottle that can be described only as, well, unique. Never have I heard so many comments directed at the uniqueness of a bottle at Drinkhacker HQ. And in case you’re curious, the base is old-style glass but the stopper is plastic.
Putting aside the bottle, let’s consider what’s inside it, shall we? Tequila. Good, silver tequila. Seriously, far better than I’d thought it could be and one of the best blancos on the market.
The aroma is immediately agave, traditional, 80-proof tequila, but one sip and you’re on to something else: This is a creamy blanco with a distinct taste of creme brulee and caramel, and possibly smoother than any other silver I’ve ever had. After two glasses slid right down without a second thought, I actually had to cut myself off for fear of no longer being able to write this.
Whether you’re an old-school tequila fan or just dabble in the spirit, AsomBroso is impossible to remember by name but easy to spot on the shelf. Grab a bottle (which is not terribly expensive for this category) immediately, I implore you. Also worth noting: AsomBroso has a couple of aged tequilas which I’m now dying to try out.
Add a + or a – to the below rating depending on your personal opinion about the bottle design.
