    What do you think about Esperanto?
    Clase Azul is dangerously sweet and smooth. The blanco is like candy. The reposado is like a werther's. Both are just wonderful.

    Esperanto is a very good tequila, but maybe a bit expensive. If you can accept that you're paying $10 extra because the bottle is awesome, then it's a very good tequila and a good price for the quality. The bottle is probably one of my 3 favorites.

    I just bought a Scorpion blanco but I haven't opened it yet. It's pretty gimmicky but I've heard good things about it.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    I'm here to learn more about bourbon and such. Tequila will always be my #1 love. The treasure hunts for both is really part of the fun.

    Hey, Max. I'm going to hunt down that Clase Azul Reposado. What would be a decent price for it?

    You can find it for $75 many places and that's the best I've seen (I think $72.99 is the lowest I've ever seen). As a last resort, you can buy from this place for $79.99 and if you see something else you like they ship for free at $100. I just bought 4R Small Batch from this place for $18.99 in addition to some tequilas.

    About half the online places won't ship it either because of size and it's ceramic. Another awesome bottle.

    Re: Tequila Forum

    I found this on the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearm page.

    (g) Class 7; Tequila. “Tequila” is an alcoholic distillate from a fermented mash derived principally from the Agave Tequilana Weber (“blue” variety), with or without additional fermentable substances, distilled in such a manner that the distillate possesses the taste, aroma, and characteristics generally attributed to Tequila and bottled at not less than 80° proof, and also includes mixtures solely of such distillates. Tequila is a distinctive product of Mexico, manufactured in Mexico in compliance with the laws of Mexico regulating the manufacture of Tequila for consumption in that country.

    This is odd because this means that Tequila shipped to the US have to be altered. The Don Julio tequila I brought from Mexico (both the Reposado and Añejo) are 38% 76 proof. o__o. Is this the way it was intended, or are they just being cheap in Mexico?

    Passed by an LCBO outlet after lunch and picked up Tlacuache Silver Mezcal, it's 42% ABV. It also says, 100% Agave Angustifolia. A website mentioned is www.mezcalesdeleyenda.com

    I poured a dram having just gotten home - my first mescal - and find it outstanding. It has a pronounced smoky taste with hints of grappa-like tastes. The texture is soft and rounded. It's completely different than any tequila I ever had.

    This is clearly a major world spirit and I'm glad to have discovered it.
