Stopped at the store after work to get another bottle of El Jimador Anejo. I figured for $17.00, I might as well try the Blanco, too. Not bad. Kind of a citrus note with a nice pepper finish. I'll keep this around for as little as it costs.
I has some Aha Toro anejo last night. It has a little more oak than I remember, but it's still pretty darn sweet. Definitely a winner for those who like the really sweet anejos.
Haven't had the EJ blanco myself but the reposado and anejo are regulars in the cabinet now. We've found that they are both excellent straight up and yet cheap enough that you don't mind using them as mixers, as they work very well in margaritas without sacrificing the super premium bottles in the cabinet when we want a nice cocktail.
I'm having a pour of Siete Leguas Blanco tonight. I like it a lot, probably my favorite tequila (although admittedly I have a lot more to try!) Great earthy flavors and somewhat more smokey/peppery than others I've had.
What else do you recommend along the same lines as Siete Leguas?
At a friends house last night and he had a Don Julio 1942 that he let me try. Tall slender bottle. I tought it was a very good tequila...smooth with floral and vanilla notes with a nice nutty, wet finish. I have never seen this offering from Don Julio. Can anyone give some history on this tequila?
