    Re: Tequila Forum

    After attending an Agave Spirits class today at Holeman & Finch I was overcome by temptation and somehow came home with a bottle of 123 Diablito extra anejo tequila from the H&F Bottle Shop.

    How did that happen???

    I expect it was a choice of companions, we all can be led into temptation.

    Probably so! My companions today were Senor Tequila, Mezcal and Sotol!

    The tasting lineup included Del Maguey Vida, Del Maguey Minero and Fidencio Classico. The Sotol was the Hacienda de Chihuahua Blanco (Chihuahua is about the only readily available brand of Sotol that I have seen. I have the anejo) while the tequilas were Ixa Silver, Fortaleza Reposado (new in the Georgia market and quite good) and Arrogante Anejo.

    In addition there were a couple of cocktails, the Kilted Pistolero and the In Bloom.

    Kilted Pistolero - Very refreshing. A nice summer cocktail.
    1.5 oz blanco tequila
    3/4 oz Drambuie
    3/4 oz lemon juice
    2 dashes Angostura
    Grated nutmeg garnish
    Shake with ice and serve up. Float grated nutmeg.

    In Bloom - A riff of sorts on the Negroni, it was much more dry, smokey with a moderate bitter finish.
    1.5 oz Del Maguey Vida
    3/4 oz Carpano Antica
    1/2 oz St. Germaine
    1/2 oz Compari
    Stir with ice and strain into coupe washed with Rosewater.

    Those jerks always apply large amount of peer pressure.

    Tequila Forum

    Recently got a JC Platino (thanks to Max for the rec) and Centinela Reposado. The Platino is quite different from Fortaleza, which is my only other nice tequila. Fortaleza is bright and sharp and a preferable profile for me. On first taste, I felt it should be priced at $35 but I'm warming to it as a different style. I'm interested to see where I stand after I've had some more time with it. How would others categorise these two blancos?

    I've yet to open the Centinela, but reviews are reassuring and I look forward to it.

    What does your Centinela bottle look like? round or square?

    Square. There were two round bottles, añejo and reposado, on the shelf as well. I figured older was better, but younger happened to be slightly cheaper. Poor figuring?

    Square bottles are a newer version while round ones are a prior formulation based on what Max told me earlier in this thread. Max will no doubt clarify but you may want to seek out those round bottles!
