Gran Cava de Oro Plata - Way Too Sweet

t1 Selecto Blanco - Expertly Made for Agave Lovers
Master distiller and brand owner German Gonzalez' t1 Selecto is delicious and full of agave. It is one of my favorite blancos, and that is saying a lot. This blanco has guts, as it's slightly over-proofed (43% abv/86 proof) that German made for his own taste and for real

Tres Culturas - a VERY decent value brand that may not be around for long- so get them while you can.
Tres Cultures is a solid, decent value brand that I believe is on a closeout. It is not easy getting any information on this brand. It went from a restaurant 'house brand' to public sale from the distillery, but now there isn't even working website for the brand. There's a

QUI is not for me
Qui extra anejo is another one of those clear filtered aged tequilas, that for the most part, has lost some of it's soul in the process. I just don't think it's anything special, and I'd rather spend $30-40 more for the real thing. I've read a few positive reviews, but
