Fortaleza Still Strength Blanco Tequila

Top 100 Spirits 2020
Return to List

The savory, spicy aroma hints at fresh tomato. The drying, astringent palate opens with a savory, herbal blast, rounding into sun-dried tomato earthiness, mouthwatering lemon peel and bright lemon-pepper on the long finish. The producer chose to go with the extra-proof “still strength” because “this is how Tequila was enjoyed over 125 years ago by my Great Great Grandfather.” The bottle, topped with a hand-painted agave piña, was hand-blown by bottle artisans in Mexico.
