This is rocket fuel, powerful heat in the front palette that disappears right as you think it’s going to overwhelm you. Lots of roasted agave here and the finish is completely perfect, this is too good to make cocktails with but I think it would be a perfect match!

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!
