Thursday, March 16, 2017 Blanco
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.
Sunday, June 08, 2014 Extra Añejo
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.

I get excited about most new bottles of tequila than come to the office, but from the moment this bottle of Chamucos Tequila Blanco Especial arrived I was desperate to get it open and get at that sweet agave juice inside. The quirky design of the cardboard box containing the the bottle reflects just how much thought and time has gone in to packaging alone. Adorned with a hand drawn pop-out devil (or Bogey Man if your translate Chamucos to English) you just know that if as much thought and care has gone in to the contents inside of the bottle...there is no way you could be possibly disappointed.
