No it's not for you tossers who say "Oh i dont do tequila it makes me do stupid crazy things!"

Any other Tequila lovers around? Your favourite? It's the next big thing in the liquor industry, here we can be tossers and claim we were on it before anyone else was




Currently doing through a bottle of Milagro reserve Anejo,

Creamy as fu** Butterscotch and Vanill flavour, its like god dropped a load in my mouth. The bottle is pretty amazing as well

It's the only spirit I enjoy drinking straight & have never understood why it doesn't have a bigger audience outside slammers & suicides..

Have never been big on it myself, but also dont go places that sell anything other than el gingo or Jose Churvo etc

Can appreciate that it is just like scotch ect in what it offers at the higher levels though

Love that Milagro reserve for a special occasion. Everyday is el Espolon reposado, awesome art on the label and tastes pretty nice too. Sometimes pair up the blanco with an equal measure of sangrita in another glass. The best way to drink it.

I usually keep a bottle of Patron XO Cafe at home for when friends are over.



I have a bottle of the Patron Silver as well which is good, nice and smooth for tequila but I probably wouldn't buy it again for the price. However I did get that duty free.

Also not a huge Tequila drinker, drink it when I go out, or with friends. If the opportunity for body shots comes up, I am always happy to have some Tequila...

This is the problem with tequila - its viewed as a drink that is drunk only to get hammered, usually from the belly button of some festy yeast-laden minge. Its a shame, because a good tequila is at least the equal of a good scotch whisky.

I once drank 14 tequila slammers.

I found out that you only have a problem with this stuff when you stop drinking it.

Good man.

Yeah, The espolon is quality for the price,

Starting on the Patron Anejo right now, another fine tequila (Duty free as well, *insert Lleyton Hewitts C'mon taunt*)

Used to drink a lot of it when I was younger, as a drink to get hammered on.
Record was 27 laybacks, what a night that was.o_O

Now days do appreciate the flavour more but really don't have a favourite yet, must keep trying them all.:thumbsu:

Had no idea you could do something other than have shot this stuff. Wouldn't mind giving it a go. Any recommendations, both straight or with a mixer?

1800 gold is pretty delicious. I love tequila, cafe petron is a great shot/sipper.

For people doing shots, 2 things:
Under no circumstances drink Sierra, it's vile.
And instead of lemon go with lime, so much smoother

Believe it or not, Cuervo's Reserva de la Familia is a pretty great sipping tequila.

Also got a bottle of Don Julio's 1942 Anejo for Christmas that is incredibly smooth for sipping.

I've got a mate from Uni who is a Mexican International student. He loves his tequila with coke and lime, which does taste very good - which surprised me as I often find myself mixing my scotch/whiskey with ginger ale and lime to get away from the old coke mixer which can become tiresome. I've even seen him put it in coffee before.

His a big fan of Don Julio which is a good mid range tequila to start off with, very smooth.

And as other have started Sierra is disgusting!

Didn't know there were so many types until I went to touché hombre in the city. :thumbsu:
They do have a great selection of tequila. It's set up like a mexican restaurant in Mexico, but it's a shame they just serve anything they can think of in a soft taco and call it mexican, when really it's just a bunch of food from all nations stuffed into a taco. They don't even have the time to heat up the tacos, which is disappointing.

Nice food, but really it's a taco inspired restaurant catering for absolutely everybody.

The best thing I had there were the fatty lamb ribs. They were worth the trip.

I ******* love tequila. I prefer to drink Jose Cuervo Respito myself. However I have just got back from Mexico (drank a lot there over a week) and it kills me to pay $40 a bottle when I could buy 2 bottles for $20 over there.

I drank some awesome tequilas in Mexico, but the names escape me. Drank a caramel tequila when I was over there, it was awesome.

I once did seven or so tequila suicides until we ran out of salt and were forced by circumstance to use pepper as a replacement.

It's nice to hear tequila is a more nuanced spirit than I expected, I'll definitely be looking into it.

Was never a big tequila drinker... Then I went to Mexico. Es como beber orina de Dios! Did the tequila tour, funnily enough in the town of tequila, and got absolutely plastered. From then on me and my mate smashed it. Best thing was buying cheap-arsed mezcal (tequila can ONLY be marketed as 'tequila' if it's grown in a certain area of Mexico. If not it's called mezcal) in a 7/11-type shop called OXXO for eleven pesos. Sold in small plastic bottles shaped like a stripped-down agave heart, they felt like hand grenades. One would leave you very happy. Two would f*ck you up.

I loved Mexico. This is the tequila I brought back.



Cheapest is white tequila. Tequila Blanco. Next is gold tequila. Tequila Oro. Then the tequila aged for up to one year. Tequila Reposado. Last is the truly aged stuff, and the most expensive. Tequila Anejo.
