Smile Tequila Thread!!!

I love tequila so I though I would create a thread to talk about it...

I like it straight, with lime or mixed with all kinds of things...

Currently I am working on a bottle of Don Eduardo Silver, great stuff!

Any other tequila lovers out there?

I only have the sauza hornitos reposado at home ... the Patron silver was demolished last neighborhood party we had. The hornitos is more of a mixer in my opinion but I do like to sip it.

I love tequila too. My favorite is Corazon... a night out with the boys isnt complete without tequila.

I prefer mine shaken with ice and strained into a shotglass. One shot, no training wheels necessary.

Corazon can be sipped quite nicely though.

When most people think of tequila they think of that yellow paint thinner in a bottle called cuervo... that stuff is puke

Patron Silver is ALWAYS around me Special occasions call for Gran Patron Platinum.


Question for everyone, Has anyone tried the New Gran Patron? It's an Anejo from what I have read.

Another vote for the Patron Silver. I am not a huge Tequila drinker, but I really like the silver.

If you guys like Patron Silver, you owe it to yourself to try Casa Noble Crystal, El Tesoro Silver and Los Abuelos Blanco (my favorite). These are my favorite blancos...

For reposados, my favorites are El Tesoro, Clase Azul and Hacienda del la Flor (old tall bottle).

For anejos, my favorites are Don Julio, El Tesoro and Penca Azul.

For extra anejos, my favorites are Don Fulano Imperial (#1 tequila), Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia (pre 2005 bottles only), Don Julio 1942 (vanilla bomb) and Arette Gran Classe (hard to find).

Wow, beat me by a few minutes -- I was going to say the same -- Patron is getting to be ridiculously priced -- Casa Noble is usually $15-20 less and a better tequila.

Tenoch is a nice, reasonably priced tequila and comes in a cool stoneware bottle.

I also have some Cuervo Family Reserve that is excellent.

I like silvers, but prefer anejos, especially el tesoro and patron.

The wife pretty much won't drink anything but Patron Silver, so I rarely drink anything but that lately....not that I'm complaining!

I agree about the agave, but the better anejos to me just have that nice balance between agave and the oaky vanilla flavors that come from the aging. It's just like cigars, plenty of room for different tastes.

Currently enjoying the silver Tequilas, I enjoy thier pure Agave flavor.

Currently in my bar, if thats what you want to call it.

Milagro Silver
Milagro Repasado
Cabbo Silver
1921 Silver

finished a bottle of Patron silver recently, it didnt last long,

I like to start out with Tequlia and OJ, and with each drink adding less OJ, until I'm sipping it straight. Thats a good night!

Regular tequila fave is Don Julio Anejo.

If you want to try something different for sipping with a cigar, the Patron XO Cafe is pretty interesting. I have turned several BOTLs onto it and most of them seem to like it with a cigar as well. Sweet taste, not a typical tequila flavor.
