This is a 110 proof tequila that will singe your nose hair to the quick, but when you timidly venture a taste, will be pleasantly surprised by a rich posse of flavors and an exquisite finish. As was explained to me by My Mentor this eve, 1 2 3’s proprietor and mastermind behind this high octane offering, wanted to produce a tequila with a nod to the more raucous and scrappy tequilas of old. Too bad it tastes so good.

For me - this is a keeper for sipping, which I prefer, or it could be used as a tasty, classy mixer. I knew of this tequila, but unexpectantly found some of it today and for a great price. After tasting, scoring and liking it; I was shocked to find some mighty low scores posted. Thanks to the folks that shared the fact that there was apparently a change of recipe or process that apparently caused a negative tasting experience for folks compared to the former issue/production. Mr Levy thanks for the heads-up! Don't know why or how but I apparently tripped and fell into some of the earlier production!! These here are all #ed under well under the #2,000. It'd be interesting to determine what changes created the lesser product AND if they have corrected or even improved the current product! I had no negative taste experiences, but will continue taste testing of it - of course, only because of my dedication to duty and persistence to tequila tasting! It has many positives including a distinctive finish that persists for a pleasant duration. What I have - I am enjoying and appreciating. (Enough so, that I returned to the shop and got more than a dozen additional bottles. I'll do a repeat or updated eval. when I've gotten into or through my third bottle. I recommend this tequila based on what I have sampled so far . . . to me, this batch is solid and has been available here at near give-away pricing of well under $20.00/750ml. (with tax!). That has to be the best pricing value I've ever found for acceptable tequila here stateside. (I'd gotten over a dozen bottles - went back for more, just to find that the 4 dozen more that had remained all flew the coop! Darn!

The process was simple, natural, and efficient enough — at least until Americans decided they liked tequila, too.
