Review: Milagro Tequila

I tried two of Milagro’s tequilas today (the silver and the reposado; didn’t have the anejo). Rather disappointing on the whole.

The Silver is a traditional, 100% agave blanco tequila, but it’s awfully harsh, even for a silver. Most super-premium, traditional silvers are surprisingly smooth, but Milagro’s Silver is rustic and carries far too much bite. It may be fine for college kids doing shooters with “training wheels,” but those tequilas cost 10 bucks a bottle. C / $22

The Reposado is better, mellowed with a bit of age but still packing in quite the bite, which overpowers the wood, though the oak age is evident on the palate. It’s still not something I’d sip as an aperitif, but I could get a shot down if a bet was involved. B- / $26

  1. Yes, the Milagro Silver is very harsh. Spend 10 bucks more and go for Cazadores.

  2. I also agree that Milagro Silver is harsh, but I like it. I was told it was triple distilled but it doesn’t taste like it is.

  3. Just picked up a bottle of silver. It’s the first time I’ve seen it at the LCBO’s in Ontario, Canada. I agree, the silve it has quite a tangy bite but for a 100% agave tequila it was a bargain at $45 versus the premium tequilas starting at $65 – $75 (we pay for our healthcare in our booze taxes here).

  4. I enjoy the milagro silver especially at the price i don’t think you can beat it

  5. Harsh? Do you people know what Tequila tastes like? Its one of the smoothest out there for that price range, and the more pricier versions have beaten all tequilas in taste tests… so good job on the research!

    Yes…the Reposado is extremely smooth. Surprisingly so. I’m not sure what the comparison is based on…I can’t imagine a smoother tequila in the price range.

    I mainly drink scotch, however I dab into a few other spirits with the exception of sweeter ones like rum, yuck. So Ive gone through a lot of different tequilas in this price range and I’m surprised by the descriptions of being harsh, I was very happy to realize I can sip this or down it either way and think, damn that’s pretty smooth.

    I can honestly say to myself I found my fav tequila in this range so far. At least try it. Take care.
