2008 AGAVE SPIRITS CHALLENGE

top_agave_spirit_sm3.png

Judges representing three countries gave their take on which Tequilas were worthy of being named the best in their class. Based on aroma, smoothness, taste and other factors, the judges sampled each of the entries and collectively came up with this top list (slide show below). Considering this was the first year this event was held, it seemed to be a success. I’m not too familiar with some of the Tequilas sampled at this competition, but hopefully next year, the event will attract more tequila brands and and maybe even award best Tequilas based on region or geography. I would like to see which is the best Tequila in Arandas and every other major agave producing region in Mexico. I’ll contact the organizers and offer my suggestions … I’ll let you know what their response is.
