What the hell is the difference between a plata and a blanco? And, yes, I'm feeling too lazy to look this shit up.

There's not normally a difference between the two. It's just a silver/clear tequila. They normally have minimal "tequila flavor", which is why things like Patron silver are the favorite tequilas of the non tequila crowd. The GC plata tastes like tequila-lite, which is more tequila flavor than you would normally expect out of a white/silver tequila, but not so much tequila flavor that it would overpower a cocktail calling for a silver/white tequila like an Anejo would. Bottom line is that if you like tequila it's a great white/silver tequila, and if you don't, I'd avoid it. I was toying around with it yesterday making something for my GF and found that 1:1:2 GCP/Pomegranate Juice/Ginger ale on ice made for a ridiculously refreshing sunny day drink. Edit: forgot to add lime

in my experience blanco or plata is bolder and has more of an agave taste than older varieties. older tequilas are smoother and more subtle.

Wine from the Marlborough region in New Zealand. Look at the label on the bottle of Nobilo.

Just one of those things I guess. Same reasons people call a dollar a "buck" etc. Kinda like saying a "dram" of whiskey. A book called A Drop o' Wine Good Drop wine blog

I'd want something enclosed. That is going to collect dust.

Have you guys ever seen a bar cart? They're not enclosed in any way. Generally speaking, enclosed bar's are expensive. Not something that I'm looking for at the moment.
