Tequila Reviews for Tequila Lovers
Don Julio. The blanco version of Don Julio tequila is surprisingly thick. The Anejo version is very fragrant and also thick, almost like brandy. The blanco version is not aged, while the anejo version is allowed to age for about one and a half years. They have many other versions: 1942, real extra anejo, reposado). All of these have individual flavor, but they all possess something in common: they have a distinct blue agave note.
Maestro Dobel Diamond Tequila. This brand of tequila showcases a clear, silver look. Despite its appearance, its taste is both woody and rich, reminiscent of extra anejo, anejo, and reposado tequilas. It costs less than a hundred dollars, making it an affordable choice for those who want to enjoy sipping their tequila and savoring its individual notes. It has a unique clarity and blend because of its proprietary filtration. However, as a luxury brand of tequila, it is not easily available.
Gran Centenario. This brand features a blanco version that is first kept in an oak barrel for a month, something that is not done for other blanco tequilas. It is also rich and sweet, perfect for cocktail drinks. However, it does possess a rather dry finish and its alcohol content gives a slight burn.
Vintage 2010 Tequila Ocho Plata. The tequila company Tequila Ocho produces different tequila lines every year, from different agave estates. This ensures that each year, they come up with different flavors. Different tequila reviews will prove how each year has a unique taste to offer. This concept is similar to how wines are produced, something not followed by other tequila companies. They have a full blend that would complement many cocktail drinks, but this tequila would also do great for sipping.
