    You know I love you...and I love 7L añejo. I just don't think that I could stand to mix it. I've got to give it some thought and get you a list of cheaper añejo tequilas that will give you a similar result so that you can sip the greatness that is 7L. Salud!

    I picked up a gift pack of Tres Agaves blanco that came with a 750 ml bottle of organic margarita mix this weekend. Man, talk about great value for $25. My wife and I really loved the margarita mix which was delicious and I thoroughly enjoyed a pour of the blanco on its own as well. Handsome bottle/label too. Check it out if it's available in your area.

    Yeah, that was available on closeout in the winter here for $15.99 for the set. I bought 2.

    Tres Agaves was originally formulated to mix, but the citrus aspect of and the nice oils make it a nice value sipper as well.

    I love how you roll bigtoys! 7L añejo and Clase Azul are totally different animals. If I'm looking for the sweet sipper, I go to CA. But I'd more often reach for 7L. That brand is so good an consistent. I actually picked up an extra 7L añejo for the bunker this week. There's no wrong choice! Salud!
