I’ve always declared that I was a drinker, rather than a collector, yet currently I’ve discovered that I have approximately 50 bottles of tequila on my shelves. Safe to say the good lady wife has requested that I start emptying some of them. To be fair the vast majority of these bottles are almost empty, they have one or two glasses left in them at best. I tend to drink from a bottle and write a review then come back to it later, usually in a moment of nostalgia, finish the bottle and then finish the review. This one is long overdue.

So I bought a new bookcase recently...the idea behind it was to make more of a display of my tequila collection. Books? Don't be daft. The result of all this was that I found bottles that had been tucked away behind others that I'd really been meaning to sit down and review. Don Alvaro Tequila Blanco is just one of the many that will be making their way online in the not too distant future. Okay, let's get the official description out of the way, and then we'll get in to it: Don Alvaro Tequila Blanco exudes a brilliant silver color, distinctive fresh aroma, clean crisp flavor and spicy smooth finish. Carefully handcrafted from one of the Cetto family's original recipes, it is perfect for the most refined and exacting palates.

Originally released in the year 2000 to celebrate the new millennium, under the name 1800 Tequila Edicion del Nuevo Milenio, 1800 Tequila have this year (2014) released a second edition of this cognac-finished extra anejo to compete in the 'ultra-premium' market that seems to gaining consumer interest at the moment. Sporting an elegant pyramid-shaped bottle, deviating from the classic 1800 bottle design, and package in a tall rectangular box that opens in a clam style movement this tequila certainly puts out the luxury feel.
