Lately I have been getting asked, what brands to buy. Obviously I don't list brands I have not tasted and rated. I try new tequila's all the time, and keep in mind that as time goes by, people's taste may change (including mine), and for that reason...... this list WILL occasioinally change. If you dont see a tequila brand on this list, it's either because I havent tried it, or it didnt make this list, for a lack of quality or unatural features.
................... THIS LIST GETS UPDATED FREQUENTLY ..........................
I own each tequila here, and have compared and tested each one according to Aroma, Flavor, Easy Drinkability, Enjoyability, and Overall Balance. Remember SMOOTH and SWEET is NOT what you always want..... that can get boring real fast, and is often artifical.
My choices may NOT be yours exactly, and that is to be expected, but if you try each of these 100+ brands, I think you'd agree the top half belongs where it is, compared to the bottom half. It's a guideline.... and remember brands change also, so one you remember being great years ago.... may not be so great now. If I hit a flavor profile that I don't like, or think it may have additives....it goes lower on the List. "Blanco IS Tequila", so if a brand has a great blanco... the chances are very good that the rest of the line will follow.
Don't be fooled by 'word of mouth', BS Celebrity brands, advertising and promotion, and most importantly..... pretty bottles. I have always said that "85% of tequila in pretty bottles is crap." Watch out for gimmicks like the bland and overly filterd Claro tequilas, or especially the inferior additive-laced diffuser made junk. I recommend Blind Tastings to know your real favorites, as I often do.
