My experience of Sotol so far is with Clande and Flor Del Desierto, haven't had Hacienda, but they have been closer to mezcal than tequila (I am aware that tequila is a type of mezcal!), so I would say that if you're more a fan of tequila than mezcal then it's likely that sotol will be less your thing. 

I like both and I have far more experience with mezcal… but this tastes nothing like that. I should try another bottle.

Not completely, Joe, there's too much bourbon in the bunker to be giving up on it! That said, there's less and less out there on our shelves that appeals these days, lots of NAS and craft brands

It's my wedding anniversary too.  I'm not much of a tequila drinker but we have a tradition for our anniversary.  Our kids are still too young to be left home alone so I make steak fajitas, a tres lec

I should try the Hacienda too, I'm curious!

Well, this is kinda cheating but I was tired, and it is a tequila mixed drink in a bottle. After working outside in my yard most of the past 3 days, gave myself a little break after 2pm today and went in the pool, then the hot tub, then back and forth for a couple hours before dinner. Wanted to drink something cold, a little sweet, and cold. Grabbed a patio safe cup and filled it with ice and then this margarita mix with tequila included. Refilled a couple times and drained this previously unopened bottle. Hit he spot.

Hi

Would anyone know what Curado tequilas really are

 

I read an article by thrillist saying they were flavoured tequila but i do not think so.....

 

Could anyone confirm, please?

This was a new one on me.

I looked up the company that makes these.  According to the site, they take blanco (unaged) Tequila and add cooked agave to it.  So yes, I would say it's flavored Tequila.  The company has several versions flavored with different species of agave.

Have been enjoying some Calle 23 blanco this evening. Lots of roasted agave notes, black pepper, a touch of menthol, maybe even some coffee notes, its very complex but very tasty.

It was an interesting sbs actually because before I'd thought  they were quite similar, but having them sbs I found that the Pasote was lighter and more mellow than the G4, which had heavier agave and more peppery notes going on. 

They're both excellent but if I could only have one I'd spring for the G4 before the Pasote (though the latter wins on the bottle design). 

If you really want to up your game you need the G4 blanco at 108 proof. Has juicy agave flavor just exploding out of the bottle. And overproof tequila is so rare as it is. Currently my favorite tequila pour.

Alas, something else not available over here either. We do get the Terralta 110 blanco, and the 110 Extra Anejo. I have a bottle of the former as yet unopened. We also get the Tapatio 110, that's awesome.

All this talk of high proof tequila made me want one of my favorites.

National Tequila Day calls for a pour of Tears of Llorona 3. Probably my favorite tequila, and is a great one to relax with after playing in a fun golf tournament this morning.

Ha, what a great name.  I recall the folktale of la Llorona - used to scare children.  It's like a female version of the boogie man. 😂

I tried a new on for me - Lunazul Reposado.

It's a 100% agave budget brand.  First impression, nothing wrong with it.  It seems the most middle of the road reposado, nothing unusual at all.  Meets all the basic Tequila requirements.  If you need an inexpensive bottle for margaritas or to take to a party, here you go.  You could drink it straight, but not much excitement for the connoisseur.

A while back, I tried a bunch of repo Tequilas that were new to me.  Winner was Rancho Allegre.  I'm having a pour, and getting a white chocolate note in there this time - nice.  And, it comes in my favorite bottle size 1L. 🇲🇽

I misspelled, it's alegre, only one l.  Maybe I was too alegre at the time.  Also not practicing the Spanish much lately.

Not tried the repo but the blanco seemed rather rough on the finish. Good price especially for a liter bottle and probably works as a mixer but not one I would want on its own. Which is probably why I didn't give the repo a try.

In the mood for something different, so got out the Rancho Alegre.  

Here's something unusual I noticed with the packaging.  The bottle is glass with a plastic screw cap.  The cap screws onto clear plastic threads, like a short plastic tube, inserted into the neck of the bottle.  First time I've seen that. 🤔

The Tequila is still tasty.

Generally, I've found the reposado version of a given brand appeal to me much more than the blanco, if I have the option.
