as far as tequila, i almost always buy Don Julio Anejo. It's a little pricey but it's one of the tastiest liquors out there IMO.


TI am not much of a tequila drinker but that is my go-to tequila too.


I like that one, and Patron Anejo is really smooth as well.  The best one I ever had was given to me as a Christmas gift:  Casa Noble Anejo 2 Yr, but it runs about $90 a bottle.

Tequila  Herredura Reposado.  (served with a chaser of Sangrita).

Scotch Johnny Walker Black.



Is JWB actually considered a Scotch whisky? :confused:  I just order the stuff.  It's not like breakfast cereals where you actually read the label...

It's not scotch, but my standard drink is Jameson's (Irish) on the rocks.

This thread excites me...I can't wait to go back to St. Thomas and grab me another box of spirits there when we go on our yearly Caribbean cruise.  Their top of the line spirits...Vodka, Scotch, Tequila, Drambuie are so cheap I feel like I'm robbing the place when I go there.  I know we have to let the cruiselines store all of them except for what I sneak on the boat but when I get curbside in Ft. Lauderdale with boxes of Liquor...it's like a kid at Christmas.  12 Bottles of the best spirits cost less than $200 and these same bottles in the states would run well over $500 easy.

I've actually been enjoying Cabo Wabo Tequila lately - great tasting and mid-priced.

Clase Azul is awesome tequila, although a bit on the higher priced side.
"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed - Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, 'It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.'" -Jack Handy

I did the same thing last year after our cruise.  By the time I shipped everything via UPS to my home in Washington, I could have just gone to the local liquor store for what it cost me.   :confused:

Glenlivet single malt is a good scotch to enjoy a cigar with.

Here in Ontario our Tequila selection is pretty small. I've really enjoyed bottles of EL JIMADOR TEQUILA 100% AGAVE BLANCO. Moderately priced (in my opinion anyways) at 33$ for a 26er (keep in mind, in Canada our booze is taxed 50%!!!!)  

Here are the tasting notes

Crystal clear water white colour; delicate aromas of citrus, with notes of melon and spice; smooth, softly textured, shows a hint of fruit sweetness on the palate, slightly rustic, with flavours of citrus and cucumber, notes of light pepper and spice on the finish.

I'd recommend the product to anyone, very smooth, and went very well with a little bit of lime juice and a quick Guantanamera Company cigar

Forever seaching for the perfect cigar, one puff at a time.

I had my first single malt scotch last night: Glenlivet 12 Year Single Malt Scotch.

It was AMAZING. I was at a Shriner's Fund-Raising Gala (my gf does their website in SA) and thought this was the perfect time to try it in case I didn't like it... you know, I didn't want to have a bottle of stuff around I couldn't drink.
O.M.G. That stuff was amazing. I can't wait to have a strong cigar and a big glass of that stuff together.

Did the scotch come before or after the other 15 drinks you had that night  ;-)
I have never had Glenlivit, though I have heard similar high praise from others.

JWB can also be Johnny Walker Blue Label , a blend of extremely rare  whiskies, aged at least 25 years, and considerably more expensive then the Black Label (about $20 a shot in a bar, about $150/750ml in duty free stores and about $500 for (if you can find it) a bottle Blue Label George V.

Anyone ever hear of Cabrito Tequila? My wife was sent a bottle from one of her business contacts in Mexico a few years back. Being I'm not really a Tequila drinker I have yet to open it. Anyone ever have this brand before? Any comments?

I've seen it on the shelves, but have never tried it.  It is a value-priced Tequila.  However, I do know that it is one of the more popular Tequilas in Mexico.  Tequila doesn't age once it is bottled, so no need to sit on it any longer.  Crack it open and enjoy!
