Also called Weber’s blue agave, A. tequilana is a blue-gray-hued species with three- to four-foot-long narrow leaves (similar to A. augustafolia var. espadín, the primary agave of Oaxaca), and it’s the only species used to make tequila. Tequilana displays citrus, spice, custard, white pepper, and a hint of smoke.
This particular batch was 8 tons; 4 of which were regular sized blue weber and 4 tons were criollo blue weber, all farmed and cultivated in Indaparapeo. Criollo are small heirloom agaves that have more sugar and flavor than their bigger counterparts. The aromas it gave off after cooking and the taste were amazing.
