Review: Rock N Roll Tequila – Platinum and Mango (2017)

Review: Rock N Roll Tequila – Platinum and Mango (2017)

Tequila has no shortage of novelty bottlings. In a world of tequila bottled in decanters shaped like human skulls and machine guns, why, a series of tequilas in bottles that look like electric guitars is almost boring.

Rock N Roll is a new line of triple-distilled tequila that hails from the Jalisco Highlands, made from 100% blue agave. Three versions are sold, but not what you’d expect: These include a standard silver (Platinum) expression, a mango-flavored expression, and Cristalino, an anejo tequila filtered back to clear. Our Cristalino bottle broke in shipping, and we never received a replacement. The Platinum and Mango expressions are reviewed here.

Fun fact: Dan Marino is one of the brand partners!

Rock N Roll Platinum Tequila (2017) – A clean blanco, the nose is peppery and rich, with racy agave notes and hints of cinnamon. On the palate, more of that cinnamon comes to the fore, melding nicely with a rather buttery body that leads to notes of fresh-baked pastries, lemon pepper, and mixed baking spices. The finish is short but expressive — far more interesting and enlightening than you’d expect from something bottled in a giant “Flying V” guitar. 80 proof. A- / $37 

Rock N Roll Mango Licor de Tequila (2017) – The press release says this is made with natural mango flavoring, but the bottle says that “artificial flavor” is used. Either way, the mango is out of place here, coming across as phony and off-putting in the way that cherry flavoring is used in cough syrup. This melds unsatisfyingly with notes of thyme, bitter lemon, and milk chocolate. None of this ever comes together in a meaningful way, but it’s not completely offensive in the end, at least. 64 proof. C- / $33

    I really appreciate you taking the time to review our brand. I would like to invite you to taste our brand once again. More imperatively, I would like to provide you the chance to try our Cristalino Anejo, which you were unable to enjoy at the time of your initial review.

    Importantly, we take feedback from customers very importantly. We are constantly looking for ways to improve our brand and product. Since your last review. we have launched our own e-commerce platform that ships our product nationwide and provides us with a better ability to maintain quality assurance in the customers experience. We have also been working to perfect our mango infused tequila, for which I am exited to extend the opportunity to revisit it.

    Please reach out to me so we can arrange for the shipment of all 3 of our products to you, on Rock n Roll of course. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Again, feedback such as yours is important to us as we strive to provide an amazing customer experience to best enjoy the product as we continue to develop and grow.

    Feel free to check out our new website:

    Christopher, thanks for the review. Unfortunately, I decided to purchase 4 bottles of Rock n Rolls tequila as holiday gifts for my team members. I received 3 out of the 4 bottles and the company has ignored my 3 emails regarding this error. Customer service is still more important than the product because people are willing to forgive for honest mistakes. Being ignored is unforgivable.
