Hearing a lot about Hermosa Tequila, I purchased a bottle of the Hermosa Añejo Tequila and again decided to add a review. I am a huge fan of reposado, but there is many times you want a longer finish that añejo tequila presents. I pulled out my fancy tequila glasses and opened the bottle, the aroma was incredible. I poured a few ounces in a glass and found the aroma growing wood, spice, vanilla… I swirled it and found long legs that slowly dripped down the side of the glass. I could wait no longer and took a few sips and was impressed with the balance of spice, wood and sweet. I know the 1414 NOM distillery and know they make some amazing blanco and silver tequilas, yet this añejo is right up there with the top añejo tequila brands I have tasted. The finish is sweet yet leaves your mouth salivating wanting more, it truly is a beautifully made tequila. This is at the top of my favorites in the añejo category and for under $60 retail it is well worth the money, very smooth, with a long finish 10/10.

Vicio Mezcal described as the purest spirit on the planet. Made by hand and cooked underground with age-old methods passed on by generations of mezcaleros. The founders spent three years of traveling to Mexico, learning about the Oaxacan culture and meeting with mezcaleros to create the perfect mezcal. Vicio Mezcal has a floral nose, tasting at first you will notice how smooth it is soon followed by an adventure of different tastes that present themselves. Compared to a fine joven tequila, yet in my opinion better this well made spirit has a soft side yet tastes like a mezcal should. 40% Alc. 100% Agave, this is truly an Artisanal Mezcal.
Vicio Mezcal illustration on the label is of the axolotl, a Mexican salamander made famous in a short story by Julio Cortazar. “The eyes of the axolotls spoke to me of a different life, of another way of seeing.”
