    Yeah espolon is every where but I guess I didn't recognize it because it was in a bottle and label design I hadn't seen before. Yes, Canicas. $99 for the reposado. Los azulejos had the simpler bottles, not overly painted or fancy.

    The Herencia historico was in a nice wood box and came with a stemmed glass. This I think is the first release, supposed to be 5 years old. I heard the second @10yrs (and 3rd @12) releases came in even nicer boxes with 2 glasses.

    Unfortunately they were all up very high behind the counter almost too far to reach in a ladder so I couldn't inspect more.
    Definitely drink it...tonight -Sutton

    Canicas is meh for the price. HH 12 year is the oldest tequila out there. I've never had it, but I've heard it tastes like tree bark. If you like a woody drink, it's probably up your alley, but you can probably get that for a lot less.

    Yeah I imagine it wood be. I'm going to go back soon and take a look at some stuff and if it's the 5yr old release I might try to negotiate for it.

    Cava de Oro Anejo from a sample - I've been wanting to try this for some time... It's actually very sweet - in an artificial sweetener kind of way. Not peppery nor with much in the way of agave flavor though. I'll have to revisit this one with a fresh palate.

    Cava de Oro is known for being on the sweet side. The XA won SoM a couple of years ago. That was when there was 130 entries and the judges had 3 days to do it, so the judging methodology might be flawed.

    I love that stuff. It's got a great buttery sort of flavor that I don't think has been duplicated by any other tequila that I've tasted....and we know that's a lot of them. or

    I just dove into some Cava de Oro XA for the first time. Holy SUGAR BALLS Batman! The review will post on Dec #2, but this makes Clase Azul seem tame and earthy.
