Siete Leguas Añejo Tequila

Siete Leguas Añejo Tequila

If it were cheaper, it would be mostly fine. But it isn’t, and I feel silly paying so much for a study in restraint.
Overall Rating: ★☆☆

Cazadores Reposado Tequila

Cazadores Reposado Tequila

Great in a margarita, and offers decent enough value, but it’s one of those tequilas that you won’t be in a rush to enjoy straight.
Overall Rating: ★☆☆


Riazul Tequila Anejo

Riazul Tequila Anejo

So, if you're convinced you can pretty much close your eyes and imagine what a tequila tastes like, have I got a curve ball for you.
Overall Rating: ★★☆ 

Casamigos Blanco Tequila

Casamigos Blanco Tequila

You have a right to be skeptical. The betting man would put George Clooney's side project tequila down as a flop. Surprisingly, this is quite good stuff.
Overall Rating: ★★☆ 

Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila

Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila

Cuervo Gold: the spirit so bad it convinced multiple generations they don't like an entire category of liquor. Let's buckle in for a well-deserved hatchet job.

Espolón Blanco Tequila

Espolón Blanco Tequila

A "meh" product from a distillery that does pretty good work. Here, Espolon tries to gun for two flavor profiles at once and I don't think they pull it off.
Overall Rating: ★☆☆

Avión Tequila Reposado

Avión Tequila Reposado

A long one for today, guys and gals, but I hope you'll indulge me. Avión is drinkable proof that positioning and branding is more than just fluff, as it can actually come to affect the taste of what ends up in your glass. And not in a wholly bad way.
Overall Rating: ★★☆

Tres Generaciones Añejo Tequila

Tres Generaciones Añejo Tequila

Tres Generaciones is wisely positioned to be a little bit cheaper than Patron or Don Julio. What makes it incredibly appealing is that I think it's just as good, if not better than what the ultra-premium names have to offer. Overall Rating: ★★☆

Centenario Plata Tequila

Centenario Plata Tequila

Sometimes what seems like a novel experiment turns out to be fairly underwhelming. Basically, this is the tequila equivalent of "Cool story, bro."   Overall Rating: ★☆☆

Fortaleza Reposado

Fortaleza Reposado

Looking for a reposado that doesn't taste like an unappealing compromise? We've got the bottle for you in the Fortaleza.  Overall Rating: ★★★

Hornitos Reposado

Hornitos Reposado

The reposado from Hornitos isn't a bad product, per se, but it's an underwhelming mixer I think can be partially explained by its production process.  Overall Rating: ★☆☆

Don Felix Añejo Tequila

Don Felix Añejo Tequila

A stupendous tequila that most have never heard of. If you've never had a "good" tequila you could enjoy neat and want your mind blown, this should be a mandatory starting point.
