Aged Silver Tequila from Mexico
80 Proof (40% ABV)
Typical Price: $35 for 750ML

It's no secret we like our liquors well-aged. Of course, it's a good thing we're not expected to age it ourselves - liquors in our collection don't have a very long half life to say the least. The latest pre-aged booze we've gotten our mitts on is Sol Azul Reposado Tequila - we've tasted it and re-tasted it over the last month or so, and formed a few thoughts. For starters, we have to tell you the bottle looks like something I Dream of Jeannie should pop out of. But does this bottle's contents have the magic we're looking for? Read on to find out.

The Look:
The bottle is one of the most striking we've seen in a while - a blue bottle that, as we said, looks like it should be home to a genie. It's cool looking and a conversation piece.

The Nose:
A light, airy nose with a saline back end, it puts us in the mind of the ocean...a very nice scent.

The Taste:
We like Sol Azul. The flavor is light and crisp, and has a clean salinity that we attribute to good Tequilas. The only downside we saw is the flavor doesn't last for long - it's kind of here today, gone tomorrow. We were hoping the taste would linger for longer, but we soon found a remedy for that problem - keep drinking it.

The Verdict:
We dug it and recommend you give it a try. We didn't find the flavor to be as exciting as Fina Estampa, but we did like it. It's worth a try if you're in New Mexico, and keep an eye out for it to start being available in other states as time goes on.
