Tequila Time

I’m less than three weeks from my trip to Mazatlan, Mexico, so I figure it’s time to get tequila on the mind.   Tequila is that great mix between strong, spicy and sweet that you aren’t sure if you want to linger over, or down quickly, so I figure I need some practice before I land in Mexico.  It was easy to do thanks to some samples that I happen to have from Casa Noble and Corralejo.  

So what did I think of these tasty treats?  Check out the notes and stay tuned until the end – where we have a winner…

Casa Noble
is a premium tequila that is made with carefully selected and slow cooked Blue Agave. The tequilas are organic certified, coming from 100% natural ingredients.

Casa Nobles Tequila Anejo
A complex spirit with more spice than some, perhaps because it is aged in French White Oak for two years.

Casa Nobles Tequila Blanco
This is  tequila that’s fairly light and smooth, making it perfect for drinking, not just downing shots.

Corralejo Tequila dates back to 18th century Mexico as one of the first producers of the spirit.  It is a handcrafted tequila.

Corralejo Tequila Reposado
This was a bit sweeter than the Casa Nobles.  It got mixed reviews.  I happened to like it.

Corralejo Tequila Blanco
This is good stuff, but it’s not going to go down easy.  You will find the burn on this strong, but tasty tequila.

Corralejo Tequila Anejo
If you are looking for a tequila that is forward and easily distinguishable, this is yours.  It’s very strong and you will want to either mix it in a tall drink, or down it quickly!

And the winner is…
Casa Nobles Tequila Blanco
The overwhelming favorite among my tasters – and myself, but I'm sure it will have a lot more competition when I get to Mazatlan!
