    That's a solid price for it. I wouldn't hesitate if I needed a blanco. It's not as good as the Campeon that I wrote about for $30, but that requires shipping.

    A 6 year old version. The mid to late 2000s always seem to be good stuff with the Cuervo RdF. When my bottle runs out, I'd probably pick up another at $45. Salud!

    Nice. I got a liter bottle of this a while back. It doesn't fit anywhere but on my bar so it's default become my go to tequila pour. I'm not complaining. Except that there's only half the bottle left.
    Definitely drink it...tonight -Sutton

    Anybody have any experience with it?

    I know Brad/Biskuit liked it!

    Curiosity finally got me to bring the Herradura Reserve Port Finish home today. Downside is that like most tequila's it is an 80 pf bottle. But I finally caved anyway.

    And your thoughts? I'm interested to see if you try the tequilas after higher proof things and if they seem more muted.

    I'd have to say it was a little muted in the mouthfeel department - expected given the ABV I suppose. I rather enjoyed it - was expecting a little more bite but was still nicely agave-flavored and was well rounded by the light wood influence.

    I plan on hitting those samples pretty hard now that our weather is starting to warm up.
