Time For Tequila:


It’s never not time for tequila (during acceptable imbibing hours, or sort of acceptable hours, that is), but now that Labor Day weekend has come to a close I’ll be shelving my rose’ and opting for some straight up Tequila Don Julio 1942.  If you’re a tequila fan (like myself), but not quite an educated buff, here are some fun facts about this particular type of Tequila Don Julio.  In commemoration of Don Julio’s 60th anniversary of producing the highest quality tequila, Tequila Don Julio 1942 was born.  Using a personal selection of prime agave, Tequila Don Julio created this unique batch of tequila aged for at least two and a half years in American white oak barrels.  Contributing even more to its exclusivity, 1942 is made with the distillate in Pot Still 6, which produces only three barrels per cycle.  Note, this is NOT a tequila you’ll be mixing into your skinny margs.  It’s best sipped neat or over an XL ice cube.  This coveted bottle has lingering hints of oak and vanilla essence, a full-bodied creaminess resulting from distillation and aging.  As this is a sipping tequila it should last you quite a while, making the price tag ($125) well worth it.
