Hermosa Añejo Tequila Ultra Premium 100% De Agave Tequila Simply Beautiful

Hermosa Ultra Premium Añejo Tequila Review

Hearing a lot about Hermosa Tequila, I purchased a bottle of the Hermosa Añejo Tequila and again decided to add a review. I am a huge fan of reposado, but there is many times you want a longer finish that añejo tequila presents. I pulled out my fancy tequila glasses and opened the bottle, the aroma was incredible. I poured a few ounces in a glass and found the aroma growing wood, spice, vanilla… I swirled it and found long legs that slowly dripped down the side of the glass. I could wait no longer and took a few sips and was impressed with the balance of spice, wood and sweet. I know the 1414 NOM distillery and know they make some amazing blanco and silver tequilas, yet this añejo is right up there with the top añejo tequila brands I have tasted. The finish is sweet yet leaves your mouth salivating wanting more, it truly is a beautifully made tequila. This is at the top of my favorites in the añejo category and for under $60 retail it is well worth the money, very smooth, with a long finish 10/10.

From the website: www.hermosatequila.com

Hermosa Reposado Tequila Ultra Premium 100% De Agave Tequila Simply Beautiful

Hermosa Ultra Premium Reposado Tequila Review

Hearing a lot about Hermosa Tequila, I purchased a bottle of the Hermosa Ultra Premium Reposado Tequila and decided to add a review. I am a huge fan of reposado so I knew I would find something I liked about it. After the first sip it could be my new favorite, and I am saying that as I have not had all the reposado tequila’s available. I do know that they aged it more than two months yet under a year- the exact time it goes into the bottle is more about taste then time. The law is reposado tequila must be aged at least 2 months/60 days yet may not be aged over a year (as it would then fall into the añejo category). My own personal preference is a reposado that is aged long enough to enjoy with a full meal or an appetizer like chips and salsa, yet something that is drinkable on it’s own. Many times I want a shot of repo just on it’s own, and the Hermosa reposado brand is perfect, very well balanced lots of spice and fresh agave taste yet has all the qualities pulled from the barrel aging that make reposados so popular. This reposado is light in taste, yet once it is in your mouth there are many different flavors that come through, vanilla, oak, orange and citrus while the fresh agave taste is still present. This is at the top of my favorites in the reposado category and for under $50 retail it is well worth every drop, extremely smooth, 10/10.

Hermosa Ultra Premium Silver Tequila Review

Hermosa Tequila

I had the opportunity to try this new tequila that will be out later this month. Wow, I have tasted many tequila brands but this tequila was so smooth I ended up drinking most of the bottle. This is an ultra premium silver tequila that is very drinkable and hang-over free, no impurities and made from 100% Agave. They said they will be out with a reposado and añejo soon as both are in barrels right now.

What does Hermosa mean in english?
Hermosa means beautiful… and so much more something described as Hermosa is not only beautful but quite possibly the most amazing person/thing on this planet and for reasons you can not describe in any language!

Star Wars Inspired Lightsaber Battle Sets A World Record

Star Wars Inspired Lightsaber Battle took place in downtown Los Angeles Friday night when thousands of Star Wars fans in costume gathered battle it out and in the mean time set a world record. It started around 9:OO p.m. in downtown LA’s Pershing Square (532 S Olive St. Los Angeles, CA 90013). Yes this is the battle that you will see in other cities like San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and due to it’s success many more to come.
I felt like I was at the live Star Wars The Force Awakens movie. This was organized by a company called New Mind Space, yet the actual Star Wars fans who came out in drones to participate were the main attraction.

NEAT Glass Official Glass of Craft Competition

World Craft Spirits Competition Makes NEAT Glass Official Glass Of Competition

Craft Competition uses a glass engineered to expose all the aromas hiding behind nose-numbing alcohol. NEAT Glass allows you to taste the truth and discover what’s hiding in your glass.

In 2003, a simple mistake in a glass blowing class created a misshapen tumbler which was used in a pinch for want of a clean glass. The amazing change in expression led to a new approach to glass design which is called Naturally Engineered Aroma Technology (NEAT). By studying links between human physiology and molecular behavior, they unlocked the hidden dimensions of distilled spirits for your exquisite pleasure and hedonistic enjoyment, with a spirits glass that directs strong alcohol away from the nose. Over the next nine years, fifty two different design iterations, hundreds of tastings, and GCMS studies led to the perfect ultimate spirits glass now known as the NEAT glass.

Science builds better glassware: The NEAT glass…Design driven by science brings truth in taste.

The Patented Design: Create a wide vessel to enhance evaporation, short enough to allow heavy aromas to reach the nose, and squeeze the vapors so lighter molecules like ethanol alcohol move faster. Flare the rim so squeezed molecules have room to expand, and alcohol scurries over the rim to disappear and never numb the nose, while the other slower moving aromas are detected in the sweet spot, without alcohol. This design patented in the USA D663165, utility patented in the People’s Republic of China, and utility patent pending in Austria, Germany, and the United Kingdom.

Definition of Flavor: The blend of taste and smell sensations evoked by a substance in the mouth. A thousand aromas, five tastes define flavor. The total impression includes mouth feel, from sensors that detect oily or dry, temperature, texture, minty, and many others. Aroma (90%) + Taste (5%) + Mouth Feel (5%) = Flavor.

Evaporation: The “engine” that powers aromas to the nose aided by large evaporation area and vigorous swirling. Without evaporation, there is nothing to smell.

Compress and Release: The neck of the NEAT Glass compresses, and the wide flared rim allows expansion as vapors pass through the narrow opening. The lightest vapor – ethanol alcohol – diffuses and disperses.

What’s the benefit?

No more nose burn or numbness. Your nose is free to detect, savor, and enjoy the subtle, wonderful aromas the distiller intended. Your nose will also tell you if the distiller did his job with care, making the proper head and tail cuts, using clean equipment, and even the condition of the barrels. Without alcohol dumbing down your sense of smell, absolutely nothing can hide from your nose.

What’s the scientific verification?

The NEAT Glass was designed for maximum drinking enjoyment and tested under controlled, uniform conditions against other spirits glasses at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas (UNLV) Chemistry Department to verify our claims.
