    Definitely try to find some from NOM 1079. If possible, the one with the hanging leather strap. Some amazing hunting info here.

    Thx for the link! That's a great resource! I don't think the store I spotted it at has the Mk.I version but I'm fairly certain it's still NOM1079.

    You know what...I've never had it. I'd feel pretty confident in buying it with how good the blanco and repo are.

    Bob is a good dude and really knows his stuff. Finding the really old bottles is very difficult. Finding a NOM1079 one shouldn't be that tough since the NOM switch was made less than a year ago.

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.

    Thanks for the heads up. I remembered seeing it on a local shelf and just picked up the last one.

    I don't think you'll regret it. Which expression did you pick up?

    I grabbed an anejo to add to the bunker. I have a bottle open now and it's a favorite. Very nutty and supple with the right amount pepper. I went through a reposado last year very quickly. Great stuff.
