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, so this list WILL change.
I own each one and have compared and tested each one according to Aroma, Flavor, Smoothness, Enjoyability, and Overall Balance. Remember SMOOTH and SWEET is NOT what you always want. That gets boring Real Fast.
Don't be fooled by 'word of mouth', price or advertising and promotion, and most importantly..... pretty bottles. None of this means much, as well as new gimmicks like Claro tequilas, or especially diffuser made junk. I recommend "Blind Tastings" to know your real favorites, as I often do.
