#62473 What are you drinking now?

Posted by Tonga on 26 February 2015 - 08:10 PM

Not only did we find an old Rey Sol, in San Francisco, after at least 8 years on the shelf (according to the guy who works there) but it had just been marked down to $295 from $400. I couldn't believe it was still there after all this time. We're drinking it now to celebrate Tom's new job. The new Rey Sol in the slick wooden box wasn't anywhere near this stuff, same bottle different label (as well as tequila). It wasn't doing it for me, but this old style certainly is.

Thanks for the info, Don Nom!


Having said that, I'm personally of the opinion that tequila is fine for a decent amount of time until there's less than ~1/4 bottle remaining. At that point, it's far more satisfying to invite a couple good friends over and finish it off in one sitting. No need to get too attached or sentimental.

#59515 new and wondering about a patron xo cafe imported reserve?

Posted by bpacifica on 29 October 2012 - 06:34 PM

Oh no caramel is added lmao.... this reminds me of a HOT product back in the day with a checkered past - Porfidio. What's funny is that to this day people clamor up & willingly shell out big bucks for a product like original Porfidio... which god only knows what's in it & where the *beep* it's made....

It may have a "checkered past" but it is still definitely the International Product Of Mystery, as one of my favorite tequila aficionados once described (a true DPism). I still clamor like there is no tomorrow to procure one of the originals (specifically 856 Tod Hunter Imp.) when they become available at a fair price and I have to say that when you open one of the original, real deals, there still is nothing better IMO, YMMV, yada, yada, yada. I wouldn't go so far as to call Martin "GOD", but he definitely caught everyone's attention for a while there. I am sure that the end product had to be somewhat influenced by whomever was running the show at whatever distillery he landed at for that production. Gimme dat caramel all day long. Love it.

Last summer a friend was kind enough to give me a baby agave so I dug a small hole in the ground to plant it, although at the time the pup did not look all that healthy since it had been dug out several days, possible weeks before we put it in the ground, never the less we had high hopes for it. As time passed the pup looked worse and started turning brown as the pencas dried and shriveled. Then yesterday I happen to walk by the dead looking agave pup and behold to me IT'S ALIVE, IT'S  ALIVE (In a doctor Frankenstein kind of voice). So now I have this zombie of an agave plant that I will name of course, Frankenstein.

Future pictures to come as growth on Frankenstein progresses.

#62399 Is There Anybody Out There?

Posted by SeattleJuan on 11 January 2015 - 06:14 PM

Here. Hahaha vanguero, especially when a person in that group posts a picture of a comparison between Don Julio Real and Herradura Seleccion Suprema with a salted rim glass and lime slices.


WTF? Yes, you can enjoy tequila however you like but posting stuff like that on a "collector's" page is going to lead to push back. How many here drink XA with lime and salt?


How many drink whiskey with lime and salt? Might as well just make a margarita from it.

Posted by vanguero on 11 January 2015 - 04:35 AM

Ha. Wish this site was a little more active. FB groups just don't cut it. That 'Tequila Collectors' group page is almost as bad as the 'Willett Bourbon' group... at my wife's uncle's 60th (sesenta) birthday party last sunday - found myself enjoying an older bottle of Orendain Ollitas reposado more than the newer DJ repo, Cazadores repo (ugh) on the table... I'd like to post that in a FB group and see ppl's reaction :) happy new year all

Yeah, I don't think you're missing anything Ian...you would do better with your selection out there in the Great White North. 


Buena suerte amigo...I'm glad you're keeping this forum going, I can't deal with Facebook and what everybody had for breakfast. I simply don't care on that level.

#61924 Treasure Hunting

Posted by TequilaPicker on 15 January 2014 - 07:21 PM

I've been neglecting my treasure hunting duties lately so I decided to revisit a few stores near my home. My first stop was a store that I had been to only one time about a year ago. Score...a 2006 siete leguas anejo in the box! Not serious treasure but a fantastic drinker for sure. My next two stops yielded nothing so I decided to visit a store that I've been to at least ten times over the past two years. I never really found any treasure tequila in this store but they HAD lots of treasure cognac. Needless to say, I grabbed all of it long ago! On this visit I again scanned the tequila shelves and immediately noticed a bottle of GCA green label, score... Then I spotted the cluster of Chinaco F&J repos still sitting on the top shelf. However, this time I decided to check every bottle to be sure there wasn't a denton hiding in the back row. To my surprise there were two denton's hiding in the back row! One was an anejo (AA02470) from 1996 and another was a very early repo (RG00022) from 1995!!! A nice haul considering I had previously visited all four stores. Sometimes it pays to double-check... Salud

#60684 Where is the selling happening?

Posted by carssausage on 13 March 2013 - 12:15 PM

Hello to all, in response to the ebay ban on alcohol and all of us searching for a place to do some trading I created a facebook page Tequila Trader, where you are all welcome to post your items for sale, auction or trade.

The way it's set up is basicaly you send me a friend request, I acept then you are able to add your item picture and description of it, then iterested partys can comunicate directly with you by posting or bidding on your item. Lets see how this works for now. Any input or advise would be greatly apreciated

Now lets get the tequila pouring!

#58338 A new forum for producers & agents

Posted by don Pablo on 17 May 2012 - 09:44 PM

This is really disappointing. Why are replies to announcements disabled? What's the fear? How can "debate" be bad?

This forum is great for learning about tequila. Once you get towards the end of the learning curve however, there are very few threads that are appealing (IMO). I like seeing what friends are drinking and finding, and there is the occasional topic of interest, but honestly not a lot of stimulating content. So when someone in the industry posts something new, whether perceived to be good or bad, there is usually some follow-up discussion. And when that industry person sticks around to answer questions, knowledge can be gained! :lightbulb:

By disabling replies, I think you are encouraging insiders to post and run (if they bother to post at all), rather than stick around for discourse. Healthy or otherwise (rarely), at least it's interesting and educational.

Just one crusty old guy's plea. I'll have a drink and get over it. Or eventually just succumb to getting tequila news on facebook, I guess. :headbutt:

Ocho blanco (had to filter the blue sediment), then Ocho reposado (had to filter ridiculous amounts of floaties), then Ocho anejo 109 proof(had to question going to work tomorrow).
