Am I the only one who thinks that compared to rum and gin, bourbon is one dimensional? Rum and gin, in my opinion, can have infinite variations based on technique, barrel treatment, botanicals in the case of gin, distillation methods, etc, whereas barrel treatment seems to be the dominating variable for bourbon.
Totally there with you bud. Gin and rum are way more interesting. I think Gin even more so.

Absolutley. And tbh you probably have to include Cachaca and*maybe* batavia arrack when thinking about rums. I wouldn't be surprise if how quickly rum ages has something to do with how different the styles of rum are.

Best readily accessible Tequila Reposado for under $50? I lean towards Don Julio, Herradura, Casamigos and Partida, but am all ears on trying others.

I haven’t had tequila in ages, but I always liked Milagro.

A good friend used to always come back with rarities and stories after visiting his wife’s family in Mexico.

I should’ve mentioned, I’ll be bringing it over to a friend’s house for dinner. They’re making margaritas, so thought I’d bring a gift bottle... so, Costco brand is out 😬

Espolon is excellent, too. Milagro has a stunning bottle and is good too. The impressiveness I think is what you should go with because, as they say, you eat with your eyes first.

Fortaleza and G4 should be around that price.

Casamigos has so much added sugar its ridiculous

In fact, I’ve put quite a bit of effort getting away from sugar in rum. Didn’t know this was a thing in other spirits?

If you're interested in blue agave but not strictly "tequila," try Hacienda de Chihuahua. Very nice sotol. One of my favorites in the agave liquor family.

Fortaleza Anejo is $100+ around here. I'd trip over myself rushing to get it at $50.

Casamigos was so "smooth" that it was boring. Might as well drink vodka.
