Yeah its looking like a bottle of Espolon or El Jimador - both around the £24 a bottle for 75cl which isn't bad
Reflective of the difference in quality, IMO. Wild, though, I wouldn't have paid $50 for 750mL of Espolon (El Jimador was usually ~$35 for 750mL in Jax).Prices for some brands have increased a lot because of the pandemic. Here Espolon is almost 50% more expensive than El Jimador, and definitely more than 24 quid a bottle.
As an aside, Texas shares a long border with Mexico, and you might think that makes tequila both more available and cheaper. Wrong. most tequila is shipped from Mexico to New York and then transported 1800 miles back again.
I may have become a horrendous stoner, but I have nothing but respect for this kind of vow.Regarding the smoking discussion. An old friend many will know on here called Romulus (Alan) kept on digging me about smoking, and when he sadly passed I also kept a promise and said I would never smoke again. Been 14 years since he died and I still havent touched a fag since..
If you're looking to drink it straight, I'm always a fan of Reposado (Gold) over Blanco (Clear). If you're mixing, either should be workable.
Nice one, I tend to prefer the gold myself, right I'm off to grab a bottle, even though I haven't been drinking I feel this will make an interesting addition to my spirit collectionIf you're looking to drink it straight, I'm always a fan of Reposado (Gold) over Blanco (Clear).

IMO, both are good examples of their respective styles so hard to go wrong. I just personally prefer to sip something that's been in a barrel for a while.
Same for me.Strange it used to really play on my anxiety, it was never really my bag to be fair. The only time I used to like it was to level out after a club, then I couldn't get enough of the stuff.
Alan, how the hell do you have a social glass of tequila, that stuff only comes out when I'm half way there and fancy spending the night in a neighbours hedge
