What brand of tequila do you like?

The only brand I've tried so far is 1800 (silver) and I'm just wondering what some of your tastes are and/or what to try next.

Is Jose Cuervo good? I see ads for it all the time.

I didn't know that anyone but Curevo made it.

I just looked at their website as I was not familiar with it. Evidently Taquila is made from Blue Agave. As with a lot of things agricultural, there is good and bad Agave. There is also a disease that kills or damages the Agave. This said, makers of tawuila take shortcuts and the really pure healthy plants are more expensive.

Next we get to the bottle. It is crystal and hand mede and etched individually.

I think that asbout covers it.

Jose Cuervo is not too bad. 1 tequila 2 tequila 3 tequila Floor

I have a friend that invented a drink that will make many of you shudder, its a half shot of jagermeister and a half shot of Jose. He calls it a CuervoMeister. I was his crash test dummy for testing it out. Now we have about a dozen people that have one on occasion.
