    One of the best. If I hadn't already dug into bourbon, I'd be running down to get some of this right now.

    I'm really impressed with it. Easily the best Reposado I've had for the money. Looking forward to trying the Anejo.

    Good news and bad news. Good News: If you like the repo, you'll definitely like the añejo. Bad News: It's because they're not that much different. Subtle differences, but I'd take the repo at $5 less. Then again, I tend towards a good repo...

    It's a mezcal but I hope it's okay! I got a Del Maguey St. Louis last night. I had read it was smoky and chalky, but I get fresh creamy agave with just a tad smokiness and only a little hint of the minerally volcanic soil stuff. Delicious but disappointing, considering the price.

    Lots of different DM stuff. Which variation did you have?

    It's Lot SLR 123, St. Luis del Rio. I like it a lot better now, after my wife bought me a bunch of tequila for my birthday. Compared to them, it's a real standout. I get a LOT of hot rubber tennis ball, and I mean that in the very best way.

    Hosted a tasting the other night. Centinela round bottle was a stand out along with Don Pilar Añejo.

    Glad you still like it but I was fairly disappointed by the reposado I picked up a few months back and tried at a Wednesday tasting a couple of weeks ago. Maybe it will improve with a bit of time now that it is open but this particular day it seemed rather uninspired. Heck, the Joe Crow dressed up in a swanky bottle was a lot better and one of my favorite bargain bottles, El Mayor anejo, was better that particular day. It tasted, and looked, a bit thin and watery.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    It's a different tequila than many. It's floral, honeyed and fruity. Kind of like a Glenmorangie of tequilas. It's a mood tequila for me, but when in the right mood, it's perfect.

    Will have to try it again of course, perhaps on its own, but I don't recall it being any of that when we tried it. It was just light and thin without much of anything else. The fact that it is so light may have let it be overshadowed by other spirits that day.
