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
