    Just noticed this. Sounds yummy! Do you know how widely distributed this is?

    Very limited....I think Michigan, and Illinois only at the moment. Maybe Indiana as well. It really is quite unique.

    Re: Tequila

    Maybe I've posted this before, but 1921 Reserva Especial (Reposado) is probably the best tequila, especially for the $55 cost. Note the dark red top; not the green of the regular reposado, which is ok, too, just not great.

    Great for sipping or for a killer margarita ("martini" style). I started drinking it based on a recommendation by my barber, who's from Mexico. He told me to get it on a trip to Puerta Vallarta. It wasn't even imported then. A few years later, it was imported, then seemed to disappear. Now, it seems to be readily available again.



    1921 was the year the Mexican Revolution ended


    all the 100% de agave tequilas have a NOM number, which is a number given to the distillery by the government. different brands made by the same distillery will have the same NOM number


    remember, dark red top, not green! not that I had any trouble going through the regular reposado in Margaritas!!!

    I'll have to grab that. It's summer now and I do prefer reposados.

    The 1921 cream tequila is equally delicious.
