Sauza Silver Tequila 750mL

Well in continuing our coverage of the lower shelves, we this time hit up the silver version of Sauza. We’ve previously had the gold and while that was not a great tequila it was certainly better than what we have here.


I reviewed this because I know that the review coming up was going to be actually quite nice, and it’s always good to remind everyone that this is a site judging with an iron fist. This literally caused me pain while drinking straight, and I’m almost wondering if I should have been even harsher.


What they Say: “Made from fresh blue agave”


Taste: 5.0 – There’s a bit of that aftertaste, but for the most part this is just clean and sadly too short.

Aftertaste: 1.0 – Oh man is that bad, even the lingering aftertaste is awful

Burn/Smooth: 3.0 – Oh yeah it burns too with it’s subpar aftertaste – this started to give me headache pains.

Aroma: 3.5 – You get a bit of that agave, but damn is there strong revulsion to tequila burn.

Honesty: 5.5 – Well they don’t have wanky text, and while you could say whoever deals with that taste must be brave. However it’s just so bad overall.

Mixability: 4.25

Tequila and Lime: 4.0 – Well the ritual helps, but that is just not an enjoyable experience.

Tequila Sunrise: 4.5 – That is just an average, if slightly subpar sunrise.

Value: 3.0 – This is quite simply not good, not downright rotgut – but certainly not worth that price.

Google Shop Average: $16

Final Thoughts: I said that the gold is slightly better than cuervo, but as far as the silver is concerned – it’s still just a slight bit better (sorry Cuervo). Still though if you are looking for cheaper tequila you should just get 1800. (Actually you should get what we have next week)
