I would say stay away from the don fulano 110 proof. I think it tastes like hairspray cleaner

but I will say, that the recent tasting I've had of the DF 100 (not 110) have been much more enjoyable  :t_up:

I had one pour of the DF 100 proof at 400 Conejos in GDL and thought it was pretty tastey! It's on the "Tequilas to get" list.

I had a small pour of the 100 proof "Fuerte" yesterday, and I didn't care for it at all. Very medicinal on the finish.

I was out looking in out of the way liquor stores and came across a litre of 30 30 blanco that looked like it was an older bottle. I asked how much it was and tge guy said 14.99... seemed like a reasonable deal for a litre so I bought it. I have had 30 30 before and thought I recalled it to be a solid middle tier tequila in the bargain to mid rang price point. Got home and found out the label has a retro look but is a recent import. It is horrible. No agave detected at all. If there is agave present it was washed out by the horrible medecinal and industrial waste notes that linger on the finish well beyond any natural bad taste should remain. wasn't any better in a marg but the nasty taste didn't last as long. Highly recommend avoiding the new 30 30 blanco.

Good to know about the 30 30 Tim.  Definitely an fan of the older offering for many reasons.  Even better to hear from you.  Make it to LB this year.  I'll buy you a couple of pops if we can find something worthy to imbibe.

agree. the only 30-30 I've found in these parts is the older blancos with the rifle on the front label. great stuff IMHO
