I recently started expanding my collection of tequila and am fairly new to it. Just had some Gran Patron Platinum and its pretty good. Just curious if anyone else is into tequila....those are mini whoopie pies by the way
True Tequilla, which, by law, can only come from a certain region in Mexico, is very potent stuff, and has to be consumed with great care. It can (again, by law), be distilled as high as 110 proof....which is over 50% alcohol. Needless to say, it won't take very much of it to have some real effects (or damage) if not consumed wisely.
We've got a bunch of it but don't drink it much... same bottles pictured here (from 2008) are probably all still downstairs in the bar except the larger Cuervo bottles given to my brother in law. Most of them are from some themed party some time ago where there was a tequila tasting.
The 'winner' from that I think was one that is all gone... everybody kept calling it 'big blue' for the giant blue bottle. One of our friends was working in Mexico at the time and brought several back, including that one so not even sure if it's sold in the states.

I just got this bottle (random choice, didn't know any better) because I needed it for some cocktails. I'm a vodka guy but the coconuttiness to this bottle has a nice taste to it. But I hate the damn lid. It's so tight it's really difficult to remove to pour a drink.
My stomach says "F TEQUILA!!!!!!" lol. I'll drink a good margarita or two, but that's all my stomach can take.
I cannot do straight shots of that garbage, doesn't matter if its Jose Cuervo or Patron. Granted I can get it down, but keeping down more than 2 or 3 shots is just plain not happening.
BTW, I am a huge whiskey type of guy. Bourbon, Jack or George TN whiskey, Scotch, man I love all that stuff. If I'm wanting to be a conisuuer, I do love a good scotch. If I'm looking to get ****ed up, give me some Makers Mark, Jack Daniels, or George Dickel.
