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.
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)
