    Your deep insight into all things that are not bourbon is always appreciated.

    I've had Los Azulejos Repo and Anejo and it always has a sour/medicinal sort of taste that I don't particularly love. The bottles look pretty awesome though.

Maybe I'm too young to remember how tasty and "real" tequila used to be. Or is this just more Driscoll dreck? I like how he conjures the image of the dejected Mexican tequila lover shuffling off to the mezcal bars to reminisce about the days when tequila was TEQUILA.
    He probably carries a bunch of stuff from 1416, 1472 and other massive contract distilleries. El Tesoro, 7 Leguas, Fortaleza, Casa Noble (not my favorite) and other small brands still carry plenty of tequilas that have a ton of agave. Don Pilar is a small brand that does it the right way as well. There's plenty out there, but you have to get through 140 distilleries and 1600+ brands/expressions to find it.

    Picked up a bottle of Jose Cuervo Tradicional Reposado today. I know this isn't going to be as good as Don Julio Reposado. I just hope it will be decent.

    I am big fan of the JC Tradicional line, especially the reposado. Great buy for the money.

    It's not bad stuff at all! For $20 and change I really like it, especially chilled. Again, it's not Don Julio. But it will do for when I can't spend $45 on a single bottle of tequila (the majority of the time).

    It's solid stuff for the $20 price tag. Not the best, not the worst. It works really well in a paloma and the repo is better than the blanco. The aging mellows it out a bit.

    blly - And Don Julio 1942 is definitely good stuff. If you liked that, there's a world of aged tequilas out there for you for around half the price that will knock your socks off.

    In Cozumel right now but can't make it over to the mainland :-(

    Selection by the pier is Ho-Hum... There's some 375ml Aha Toro bottles I might snag though.

    I know, right! I figured I would be spoiled for choice when I went to Cozumel, but I just bought a Clase Azul to give as a souvenir gift.

    Pick me up a Talisker 57 North from DuFry, will you? I totally forgot to buy one when I was there.
