Premium, the second of three Embajador Tequila offerings can be described as the good middle child of the bunch–
Eager to please, never offending, yet losing a tad of its uniqueness sandwiched between its siblings.
According to the distiller, it’s rested for eight months in American and French Oak barrels, meaning the final product is a blend of juice from both types of cooperage. It’s pale, straw color suggests that all its cooperage is used since precious little color is given back to the tequila.
Its aromas aren’t dominant, but pleasant nonetheless. Banana, toffee and agua miel are evident, and the grassy note that sneaked into the Platinum comes out in the Premium as well. A bit more time and swirling reveal a bit of citrus and a touch of ash.
Not surprisingly, Premium is fairly light bodied and modestly leggy. Vigorous swirling sets off wide-set and narrow trails down the glass’s sides, hinting correctly that it won’t dominate the palate. But that doesn’t mean it won’t please the tongue either.
