This tequila is like an old friend, it is my go to tequila, low cost and always reliable. I found out about this tequila from the Mexicans, and there is a reason why this is the largest selling tequila with the Mexican consumer, because they know something most Americans have yet to learn. This tequila is as comfortable as your favorite pair of shoes.

It lacks the buttery body of a tequila like Oro Azul, and the warmth of something like Corazon Blanco, but it has incredible distribution, and a reasonable price for such dependable quality, and I enjoy knowing I always have have a reliable friend near by (I travel a lot)

As far as presentation, no, it doesn't have a cool looking bottle, but it has something even better, it has a bottle design that doesn't waste tequila by dribbling it down the side, which is a fairly rare attribute and much appreciated. (Corazon also has a great tequila pouring design) The pour design is important if you pour as many as I do in a row - lol - and this should actually even be a separate ratings category, given what good tequila costs. Therefore, I am giving it a good presentation score for the cool restrictor plate that keeps you from spilling any.

When you are at the beach, or on a business trip, and don't have 150 choices of what to buy, pick up this great reliable reposado, you will thank me!
