ALRIGHT TEQUILA LOVERS (you know who you are), listen up … a great new tequila has hit Las Vegas! I’m talking about my personal new fave, Tequila Don Pilar. And you’ll only find it at Station Casinos.
Now, this isn’t some frat-house, jug tequila. This is the good stuff. Estate-grown in the highlands of Jalisco (the Motherland of Tequila) and distilled in small lots. Don’t be lookin’ for this in warehouse and grocery stores because they don’t make anywhere near enough of it for that. Un-Uh, this is a serious premium elixir. Double distilled, and in the case of the Anejo, aged in new American oak barrels for 12 months.
That said, let’s get to the good stuff — what does it taste like? Well, the Blanco has creamy flavors of vanilla (even though it see no oak at all) and agave fruit (like baked pineapple & bananas), with a touch of sweetness and a nice hint of crushed black peppercorns. All BS aside, it’s the best blanco I’ve ever had. The Anejo takes it up more than a notch. The agave fruit (those pineapples and bananas) is full, rich and round, with nice accents of vanilla and butterscotch form the oak. The finish is quite long, with a spicy hit of cracked black pepper corns. I’d put it up against any Anejo out there, including my long-time fave, Chinaco.
Sorry if I made you thirsty, but I have good news for you. You can try these fantastic Don Pilar tequilas at your favorite Station Casino & Fiesta. Check the Mexican restaurants, naturally.
Now, how about letting me know about your favorites?
