I did it so you didn’t have to, folks. I subjected my poor liver to sample after sample of tequila and mezcal at last weekend’s Tijuana Tequila Expo.
Unfortunately, due to my inebriated state, the notes I left with from the tequila-heavy tented area down on Revolucion make zero sense. All I know is that we left with a big bottle of Mezcal Felino and a small bottle of tequila that came in a cool little leather carrying pouch. I’ll have to check the brand on the small bottle and get back to you on that later, but I’m pretty sure I wanted my bf to buy it for the cute tequila purse and not the actual quality of the tequila.
So, if you’re in the market for tequila, I’m afraid this post doesn’t help much. But here’s my attempt at helping you through the daunting task of picking out a good bottle of tequila: The Tequila Don Roberto wasn’t bad, the Buen Amigo organic tequila was good, and the Tequila El Agave Artesanal was one of the best. At least, that’s what I think I meant by the scribbles on the backs of the cards I gathered. Sorry guys, next time I’ll try to keep things under control.
