Herradura Ultra Anejo Tequila Review

Herradura Ultra Anejo

Happy National Tequila Day 2020! With the Coronavirus still cancelling some of our favorite drinking holidays this year, I thought I would pick a really nice tequila for you to go out and blow some money on. I have written about the trend of clear Anejo tequilas coming on the market. I previously reviewed Don

La Gritona Reposado Review

La Gritona Bottle

Once alcohol sales moved into grocery stores in Washington, it really did impact the diversity of spirits you could buy across different state run stores. So, when we happened to be out and come across an original Liquor Store still doing business, I had to go inside. The selection wasn’t that big of a departure

Grand Orendain Reposado Tequila Review

Gran Orendain Reposado

This tequila is another discovery that came from attending the tequila festival in Seattle. I had actually seen the less expensive variety at a local liquor store, but not until about a year or so ago did I start to see the Gran Orendain pop up at my Total Wine. The thing I like most

Roca Patron Reposado Review

Roca Patron Reposado

Patron was one of the first brands that expanded the perception of tequila in America. Though one time considered the go-to top shelf tequila, recent competition has leveled the playing field. However, Patron had decided to raise the bar again with one of its news varieties of tequila. Roca Patron has been out for several

Elvelo Tequila Review

I always like to share discoveries I make at the Agave Fest in Seattle. This year, I am reviewing a brand I was unfamiliar with called Elvelo. Created in collaboration with Master Distiller Carlos Hernandez Ramos of La Cofradi, this tequila is made with the unique purpose of making the very best cocktails. Altamar Brands,

Hornitos Black Barrel Tequila Review

Hornitos Black Barrel

I have been a long time fan of Hornitos. I recall when I first started drinking tequila regularly, that Hornitos Silver was the go to tequila. But, the more I learned about the complexities of tequila, I realized that resposado was really my preference. But as I explored anejo and extra anejo varieties, I started

Cazadores Reposado Tequila Review

Cazadores Reposado Tequila

Cazadores is a great family of tequila created in Los Altos de Jalisco. The Cazadores Reposado has actually become a staple in our household because it is such a great value. However, this tequila can be used in cocktails or served neat. Like many reposado tequilas, Cazadores reposado variety is aged one year in American

Don Julio 70 Anejo Review

I have always been a huge fan of Don Julio Tequilas. When I first had the opportunity to taste this fine spirit at a Tequila tasting, I knew this was going to be a permanent addition. Tequila Don Julio 70 Añejo Claro is a unique variety that redefines the Añejo category. The tequila still has

Espolón Tequila Perfect for Dia De Los Muertos

Espolón

You might think that I chose this bottle because of the great label which is so appropriate for your Dia de Los Muertos celebration. However, this tequila is under rated for what it has to offer. Now, I have only seen Espolón available in Silver and Reposado, so for today’s review, I will be focusing

National Tequila Day 2018

Reposado Tequilas

Hopefully, you have all recovered from National Tequila Day yesterday. I got to try so many good tequilas, that I thought I would share some of them with you. If I can help just one person not buy Jose Cuervo, then I will feel like I have done some good in the world. This year,
