    I really enjoy El Tesoro but have never seen the older bottles. Can you post a picture of one so that I know what I'm looking for? We have a huge Mexican community here in Chicago and I'm thinking I might be able to find some cool stuff in Mexican neighborhoods nearby.

    Here's a picture of a real old one that's called 'Muy Anejo', but they usually just said Anejo (without the 'Muy'). The label was also slightly different, but you get the idea what the older bottles looked like.

    On the tequila forums, they called them the ETWL (El Tesoro White Label) bottles.

    Thanks so much for the picture. Very cool looking bottle!

    Re: Tequila Forum

    Tried some new ones this weekend.

    Ley .925 Extra Anejo - Really Good
    Volcan Mi Tierra Anejo - Really Good
    El Reformador Reposado - Good
    El Luis Viejo Blanco - Poor...latex tasting finish. I've never tasted anything like it before.

    For a blanco on the rocks with a squeeze of lime, I'm happy with Patron.

    If I feel like digging in to something, the Reserva de la Familia is nice.

    I also have a bottle of Tequila 1921 Anejo that I received as a gift from a traveling family member. It really needs be opened and inspected soon.

    Went to a fantastic Mexican wedding on Saturday night and drank boat-loads of Del Dueno Anejo and Siete Leguas Reposado. Both were extremely enjoyable and burned clean the morning after, which is always a bonus!

    I've never been able to find a Del Dueno. I'd love to try it. 7 Leguas is a GREAT line of tequilas. And I've always found that good tequilas never make me feel bad the morning after. Those two brands definitely qualify.

    I like 1921, but it's not may favorite. The reserve reposado might be my favorite from the line.

    Patron is perfectly fine as well, but I like something with a bit more agave flavor and peppery finish if it's a blanco. RdF is a great tequila. It has a bit of everything...including a hefty price tag. I only share that with people that I like...and who I know will appreciate it.

    Re: Tequila Forum

    What would you guys recommend for a decent/good Anejo tequila? I've never had an Anejo and would like to try one. A store here has half-pints of Patron, all 3 flavors, for $10.99 each. Should I just get the Anejo Patron and give it a try? Another one that I noticed on sale is Tres Generaciones Anejo for like $36.99 (for a 750ml). Is it any good? Any other recommendations?
