Crystal clear with blonde highlights. Agave, pepper, caramel, banana and pineapple aromas. Smooth, rounded taste with forward agave sweetness. Memorable with a soft finish. Aged in American Oak barrels for 15 days. Touted as "The World's Smoothest 100 Proof, 100 percent Agave super premium Tequila," 1800 Select Silver Tequila can definitely be called crisp, clean and, yes, smooth. 1800 Select Silver is double-distilled for clarity and blended with a touch of aged tequila (a process unusual for a silver tequila). It comes packaged in a great glass bottle with a glass stopper that doubles as a shot glass. At 50% alcohol (most tequilas are 40% alcohol), one would expect a harsh taste; however, 1800 Select Silver 100 Proof is not overly harsh, although it is definitely strong. The taste is full and satisfying, and mixing with 1800 Select Silver is extremely rewarding.
