Olmeca Altos Plata Tequila: A Deep Dive into a Refreshing Silver Tequila

The Olmeca Altos Plata Tequila is a silver tequila, also known as Blanco tequila, bottled unaged for a pure agave flavour. This versatile spirit is a popular choice for cocktails like margaritas and Palomas, but it can also be enjoyed neat or on the rocks to appreciate its crisp, clean taste.

Here at The General Wine, we've delved deep into the Olmeca Altos Plata Tequila to provide a comprehensive tasting guide, complete with serving suggestions to elevate your next tequila experience.

Aroma:

Olmeca Altos Plata offers a clean, vegetal aroma with prominent notes of fresh agave. Hints of citrus, particularly grapefruit and lime, add a touch of brightness. Peppery spice lingers in the background, adding complexity without overwhelming the senses.

Taste:

The first sip of Olmeca Altos Plata is crisp and clean, showcasing the pure essence of the blue agave plant. Sweet agave nectar flavours dominate the palate, balanced by a subtle peppery heat that builds gradually. Hints of citrus and herbal notes emerge, adding depth and character. The finish is dry and refreshing, with a lingering peppery warmth.

Key Tasting Notes:

  • Agave: Sweet, fresh agave nectar is the primary flavour.
  • Citrus: Grapefruit and lime add brightness and a touch of acidity.
  • Pepper: A subtle peppery spice builds gradually, adding complexity.
  • Herbal: Hints of herbaceous notes linger in the background.

Body:

Olmeca Altos Plata has a light to medium body. It's not oily or viscous, making it incredibly smooth and easy to drink. This lighter body makes it a perfect base for cocktails without overpowering other ingredients.

Overall Impression:

Olmeca Altos Plata Tequila is a classic silver tequila that delivers a clean, crisp agave flavour profile. The subtle citrus and peppery notes add complexity without overshadowing the star of the show – the blue agave. Its smooth, easy-drinking nature makes it perfect for sipping neat or on the rocks, but it truly shines as the base for refreshing cocktails.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Neat: Enjoyed straight in a chilled shot glass to appreciate the pure agave flavour profile. Ideal for sipping slowly and savouring the taste.
  • On the Rocks: Simply add ice to a rocks glass and pour Olmeca Altos Plata. The ice chills the tequila slightly, making it even smoother and more refreshing.
  • Margarita: The classic tequila cocktail. Combine Olmeca Altos Plata with fresh lime juice, orange liqueur (like Cointreau), and a splash of agave nectar for a perfectly balanced margarita.
  • Paloma: A simple and refreshing highball cocktail. Combine Olmeca Altos Plata with fresh grapefruit soda, lime juice, and a pinch of salt for a citrusy and bubbly drink.
  • Tommy's Margarita: A purist's margarita made with only tequila, fresh lime juice, and agave nectar. Olmeca Altos Plata's clean flavour profile allows the citrus and agave to shine through in this minimalist recipe.

Food Pairing:

Olmeca Altos Plata pairs well with a variety of foods. Its citrusy notes complement spicy dishes like tacos and fajitas. The agave flavour complements grilled meats and seafood. It can also be enjoyed with lighter fare like salads and ceviche.

In Conclusion:

Olmeca Altos Plata Tequila is a fantastic choice for those seeking a high-quality, versatile silver tequila. Its clean agave flavour profile, balanced with subtle citrus and peppery notes, makes it perfect for sipping neat, on the rocks, or using as a base for classic cocktails. At The General Wine, we recommend adding this versatile spirit to your collection for a taste of pure agave excellence.
