    Picked up a bottle of Hacienda Vieja Reposado tonight. 100% Agave, $21.99, so far it's pretty good, very smooth and has a good amount of flavor for a $20 repo.

    And yet another on-line order of Fortaleza Blanco (x2) and Muchote (x2). Can't beat those babies with an ice cold Bohemia on a hot summer evening!

    I'd never had it before and saw it in a store here for $18. I bought it.

    I also got my first shipment of free tequila from Uno Dos Tres. The Blanco is probably the weakest because it's a little thin and lacks the agave punch. It smells wonderful, but doesn't follow up with the great taste. It was good, not great. The reposado was the best. It kept the good aspects of the blanco, but a nice smooth and spicy finish too. The anejo is full of woody flavors and a rich caramel tone as well. It's fairly tasty and has no burn/sizzle at all. Overall the line is good. The blanco and anejo are probably a B-/B. The Reposado is a B+. Good stuff, but maybe not the best value in the $40-50 range.

    Let me know what you think of it, I am not a huge tequila drinker, just getting started. If good 100% agave's can be found in the $20-$30 range, color me in. I favor tequila in the summer months, it makes for a refreshing drink. I haven't revisited the Hacienda Vieja yet, but on initial taste I was satisfied, it's not the best tequila I've ever had, but it holds it's own, would be nice neat and would make a nice base for a few cocktails.

    Drinking and reviewing tonight. Pura Vida Blanco and Reposado. Also, Tequila 123 all ages. I might try some more from there, but 5 is generally my limit before my palate suffers. I very well may keep drinking, but the reviewing will be done. I'll recommend the entire Pura Vida line and also the Dos from Tequila 123. Pura Vida blanco has a nice smooth agave/vegetal/spice/mint thing going for it that is very unique. The aged ones build nicely on that base and add vanilla, cinnamon and oak. All very good.

    Re: Tequila Forum

    Tasting/Reviewing tonight again. It seems like Thursdays are the right nights for me to do that. So far:

    Cava de Oro Blanco - B - A very nice entry level tequila without too much complexity. I'd call it a crowd pleaser because it's pretty smooth and none of the flavors would scare anyone off.
    3 Amigos Blanco - B- - It was fairly basic, but had a bit of alcohol on the nose and finish. The nice peppery blanco flavor was there, but it was just a bit harsh. Mellowed in a mixed drink and this will be good for under $20.
    Antiguo Blanco - B+ - I've never been a huge fan of Brown-Forman/Herradura tequilas, but this one was really quite good. For $20-25 a bottle, this was interesting from start to finish. An alomost wine/raspberry like nose and flavor in it. Interesting and delicious...combine that with cheap and Max Power is a happy man.

    More to come...

    Good stuff. I'm doing some reviewing and tasting tonight.

    4 Copas Anejo - Superb and $35 at Mission (by far the cheapest)
    Fortaleza Blanco - I could drink this for hours and not get tired of it.

    That's the start. I probably have 1 or 2 more reviews in me tonight.

    Re: Tequila Forum

    I just got back from a wedding in Cabo and picked up a bottle of Trianon Anejo. I tasted about 10 different tequilas in the shop before I decided on that one. I am definately a novice tequila drinker and to me this one was smooth, enjoyable and flavorful. The tequila bug has bitten me.

    Has anyone else tried any of the Trianon tequilas?

    I've never even heard of it...and that should tell you something. Congrats on a good find.
