We got in our bottle of Sol Azul Gold Tequila a month ago, and you must be asking yourself "What took them so long to review it?" Well, there are some questions that have no answer, but we can say it's tied up in the story is one of our Interns spending the night in the drunk tank after too much time with a bottle of Tequila. We're over our gunshyness now though, and we're ready to talk turkey about Tequila. So was this Tequila a turkey, or was it what we were looking for?

The Look:
It's a big ass bottle full of a light golden colored liquor. How can you go wrong?

The Nose:
The smell is sweet, almost candy-like compared to other Tequilas we've tasted. There's still that Tequila smell of course, and it doesn't have any of the burn we usually associate with lower priced bottles.

The Taste:
According to one Intern, this is a schizophrenic Tequila. Does it want to be sweet or hard? Does it want to be Sauza or Cuervo? We found it preferable to either brand, and even when we drank it straight there was no Tequila face involved. You know, that grimace you make when you drink straight Tequila? Not there. Overall it was sweet without getting in your face, and it makes a damn good margarita.

The Verdict:
We made some mean mixed drinks with Sol Azul, and we liked everything we tried it in. It's definitely a value for the price tag, which is the lowest we've seen for a liter of Tequila that doesn't strip paint. We have a feeling that's reflective of its New Mexico proximity and the prices will go up when it goes free range, but if you can find it stock up at the low price in advance.

To whom it may concern... couple tips. When reviewing tequila please mention the age... it was obviously not a silver but no mention of if it is a gold (joven) or a reposado... or even a light anejo. No mention of if it is a puro or mixto??? No mention of NOM? It was obvious to me the person that wrote this review knows very little about Tequila. Right away this kind of review diminishes the credibility of the site overall. Just a thought... one should know a product pretty well before providing a review... an uneducated opinion is of very little value. Peace out!
