Corralejo Reposado Tequila
Tequila Reposado — Guanajuato, MexicoTastedVery enjoyable, smooth, flavorful tequila for the price. My entry level sipping tequila. Better than other tequilas, like Espolon, for the price but not as good as Camamigos and Herradura which cost a little more.
Arta Tequila Extra Añejo
Tequila Extra Añejo — Tequila Valley, Jalisco, MexicoTastedBest tequila I’ve ever had. Caramel nose with hints of spices. Even with 5 years aging the tequila maintains a nice strong blue agave taste with hints of pepper and oakiness. Very well balanced and very smooth to drink.
Aguardiente — ColombiaTastedLicorice flavor. Smooth enough for shots but all great for mixed drinks.
Ron Zacapa 23 Sistema Solera Rum
Aged Rum — GuatemalaTastedMy go everyday sipping rum. Good balance of flavors.
Kirk and Sweeney 18 Year Rum
Aged Rum — Dominican RepublicTastedVery enjoyable, smooth sipping rum. Goes down perhaps too easily. However not quite as complex taste as the Zacapa 23 or a 30 year Ron Medellin I’ve had.
Zaya Gran Reserva 12
Aged Rum — Trinidad & TobagoTastedGood rum for the price. Great for mixing and can sip it but prefer other rums which are a little more expensive for sipping.
Espolòn Añejo Tequila
Tequila Añejo — Los Altos, Jalisco, MexicoTastedDecent tequila for the price. A bit harsh. Not as smooth as the similarly priced Corralejo Reposado and not nearly as enjoyable as a little more expensive tequilas like Casamigos. Use for mixed drinks but not for sipping.
Casamigos Reposado Tequila
Tequila Reposado — Los Altos, Jalisco, MexicoTastedWonderful sipping tequila. A lot of complexity with the nose and flavor while all being well balanced.
Rhum Barbancourt Estate Reserve 15 Year
Rhum Agricole Vieux — HaitiTastedCaramel, spices, and oakiness. A whiskey drinker’s rum.
Herradura Double Barrel Reposado Tequila
Tequila Reposado — Tequila Valley, Jalisco, MexicoTastedSmooth sipping tequila that’s reminiscent of a nice rye whiskey while still maintaining it’s tequila flavor roots.
