    Re: Tequila Forum

    Thanks to a generous SB'r, I'm enjoying a very pleasing pour of Tonala 4 year Anejo. While the agave is muted, I still get enough to know it's tequila - it keeps its peppery kick and rounds out with some very, very nice rum & brandy tones. I may have to seek out a bottle of this.

    The Tonala 4 year was my favorite tequila until I had Don Pilar XA. But it's still in my Top 3. Love that stuff.

    I have bottles of the Pilar Anejo & XA too - I agree the Tonala falls a tad short of the Pilar for my palate, but was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked the Tonala.

    Re: Tequila Forum

    First pour of an El Tesoro Reposado tonight - enjoyed the more prominent spice/pepper notes. It also was not as sweet as others I've tried, so a nice change of pace (granted, I've only had a half dozen different brands, but this one stood out as having a more vegetal and peppery profile).

    Also saw a Don Felix Anejo Edicion Limitada - remembered reading about it but couldn't remember what I read! It was about $65, so I passed ...

    Re: Tequila Forum

    Just took advantage of the Hi-Time 10% sale thanks to heads up from our resident Tequila Tourist (http://tequilatourist.blogspot.com/). Not that I needed to spend a bunch of money on booze... but who am I kidding I was going to do it at some point anyway might as well take advantage of the awesome prices.

    I selectively built my order up to like $1500 then had to slowly chip away at it, finally got it down to 9 bottles (7 tequilas) and 2 gift cards to use later.

    Mostly stuff I hadn't bought before but I've heard good things and really wanted to try. Casa Noble anejo, Don Fernando anejo (came with an extra $10 coupon), Don Pilar anejo, Agave 99 anejo for super cheap, Oro Azul anejo, Siete Leguas anejo, and my favorite value blanco Herencia.

    As you can see I'm an anejo fan. Would have gone for a few XA's but couldn't pull the trigger on the ones that caught my eye.

    I did the same thing. I took 24 bottles down to 12 and feel like I accomplished something good.

    That sale is the best.

    Frida Kahlo Anejo from a sample bottle - it's pleasant enough but doesn't pop me like the Tonala did a few nights ago.

    Not counting on pvw or anymore BTAC and it seems in fall and winter people tend to ignore the favorites of the warmer times of year like tequila and rum. Picked these up yesterday. The Tonala was marked down and I couldn't pass up the Corrido.

    Definitely drink it...tonight -Sutton
