    I got a sampler of Avion today for $9.99. It included a 50ml bottle each of Silver, Reposado and Anejo. Being relatively new to tequila I can't really give detailed tasting notes, but the Reposado and Anejo were both pretty smooth. I think I liked the Reposado best. Not quite as good as Don Julio Reposado in my opinion.

    I just tried the Corzo Silver. Not being a Tequila afficianado, by any stretch of the imagination, It smells and tastes "almost" like home made corn liquor. I'm wishing I hadn't spent the money on this one.

    Just put in another order with Hi Times Wine Cellars: Muchote Reposado, Don Fernando Reposado, JLP Presidents Anejo and Corrido Reposado. Looking forward to receiving my order. In the mean time, I'm about to crack open my bottle of Fortaleza Blanco and a cold Bohemia.

    It's REALLY mild and has a citrus/vanilla thing going for it without a trademark tequila bite. It's just a notch better than Patron to me because it has all the same smoothness with a little more flavor (although you might not like the flavors).

    I describe Avion to people as a quality, no risks tequila. It has nice agave flavors and is really easy to drink, but there's no defining flavors that make you remember it. I have all 3 bottles and I like it, but I don't go out and tell people that the NEED to get it. Very good, but I can always recommend something in the price range for each age that I like better.

    Love it. That's a great value oriented order. I'm in love with the JLP line for under $20. I could drink the repo and anejo all day...if my liver would let me. Corrido repo is awesome. Don Fernando is a little different and wonderful in the $20 range. Muchote...is Muchote. Good stuff.

    Good to know that it's a quality tequila. I was a bit skeptical of it due to the TV commercials I've seen recently. I do think it is a bit expensive. The anejo here is like $51.99. I can get Don Julio for at least $5 cheaper.

    1921 my FAVORITE tequila, mainly the Reserva Especiale, a reposado





    btw, I'm pretty sure that the "Scotch" poured in the pivotal bar scene in "Inglorious Basterds" is 1921 tequila

    Re: Tequila Forum

    I'd like to get a recommendation in the $20-$30 range for a tequila noob. I never really had a good tequila before, I guess I got scared off by the bad stuff. Last week I was thinking about it and how I used to dislike bourbon as well, because I had only had really bad bourbons! I grabbed a mini of Penca Azul reposado to experiment with it and it's very good. I like the freshness it has, and the salt and pepper in the flavor.

    I'd like to get a taste of an anejo now too so I can learn the differences in flavor. I am looking for a mid priced tequila that is a well crafted example of a "typical" tequila flavor profile (if there is such a thing). So where should I start without breaking the bank? Is it beneficial to taste a reposado and anejo from the same brand when learning? As much as I'd love it, a full size Penca Azul is out of range for now.

    www.morewines.com has the best price on that and Pura Vida around. Both very good and not too expensive there. I think Avion is $30/35/37 and Pura Vida is $26/28/30 for the ages.
