    It is hard to drink backwards to an extent. While I enjoy many CS offerings, I think that I still enjoy the easier sipping of 80 proof items just as much. That's why I like to mix it up. One to two nights with tequila, one with scotch, one with bourbon, one with wine...and two with water.

    Although occasionally, I'll be like last night and do: malt, tequila, mixed drink. Lots of good basketball and no kids. It was a fine evening.

    The simple pleasures eh?

    I'm continuing my journey south geographically and on the ABV scale tonight with Maestro Tequilero XA (38% ABV)

    What did you think of it? I found that even with the low ABV, the spice and wood notes were able to shine. It really reminds me of the old Cuervo Añejo. The bottle is a thing of beauty too.

    Focusing on tequila tonight. Started with Gran Dovejo Reposado. Great balance and baking spice from NOM 1414. Moved on to Marquez de Valencia Reposado. A bit more wood influence and pepper on this one. Very different, but very nice as well.

    Re: Tequila Forum

    Going back a few posts...I'm trying a tequila aged for 52 months tonight. Gran Marquis Tequila Extra Añejo. It's got a lot of cognac type spice notes and goes down really easy, but it's $300 and not worth that price. It's aged in French Oak, but I'd still take Don Pilar's XA for half the price any day. My review of this one will post in about a week. Complex and tasty, but for $300, buy 6 stellar juices and roll with all the ages. As always, just my opinion. Everyone's tastes are different.

    It wasn't as sweet as I thought it'd be but there was a nice dustiness to pair with the agave spice. I'm enjoying my samples immensely

    I assume that you're talking about Don Pilar XA.

    That's kind of the extra element that being a tequila lover allows for. It is such a different flavor than grain based spirits that I get the chance to pick and choose. Every time that I decide to have a pour for the night, I get to fall in love with something all over again. Irish, Scotch, Bourbon, Tequila...all different, all delicious.

    Maestro - my first XA in a long long time... I'm sipping on some Asombroso XA tonight and it has a nice dark/dried-fruit sugar thing going on... Maybe a little bitterness peeking through too. Delightful.

    I'm eyeing that Cava de Oro XA but it's skeeerry

    Which AsomBroso? 5 year or 11 year? Did I send it? If so, 5year...
