I’m afraid I have a weakness for fine wine, craft beer and good tequila. Not all at the same time, of course. Fortunately or unfortunately I don’t buy tequila frequently because, like food, I’d rather have a small taste of decadence than a whole plate of mediocre… and good tequila is not cheap.
I went into the tiny liquor store in Bristol, NH with every intension of buying my old standard tequila, Patron Silver, but as I stood in front of the tequila isle – staring bleakly at the prices – I saw the Casamigos. It’s been around for a while, but I’d never heard of it (I don’t watch much TV so I would have missed any commercials.), and the label was intriguing. The price just slightly higher than the Patron so I thought, “What the heck!”, and purchased a bottle.
I have to admit, it IS a very smooth tequila with a clean simple flavor that works well with a squeeze of lime over ice… and after the first 2 glasses… it tasted even better!
Of course, after looking it up online, I now know that George Clooney (and friends) make this stuff. Not being particular observant – I missed the “George Clooney” signature on the bottom of the label. I’m not sure that the taste lived up to the high price tag but it was definitely worth trying.
