Been drinking tequila for a number of years. spend 2/3 weeks every year in Cabo San Lucas, Mx. so have access to some remarkable tequila unavailable in the U.S.
Read about Santos Mezquila and decided to buy a bottle. I primarily drink Don Julio, Herradura, Cinco Perros, Casamigos, all anejos.
Santos was different, more smoky, less bite, great sipping drink.
Will certainly add it to my collection
I've always been a Sammy fan, and enjoyed Cabo Wabo and the Sammy's Beach Bar Rum (Red Head). Wasn't a fan of the regular Beach Bar Rum. Figured I'd give this a shot. By itself, it's decent to sip, but I made the mistake of tasting it, along with the Clase Azul Reposado and Adictivo Extra Anejo that arrived in the same order. Made the Santo taste very earthy and not nearly as good as the others. I waited a few days and tried it by itself...much better. I generally sip Blanco straight from the freezer and haven't tried that yet. I've been sipping this one at room temp like I do with Reposado and Anejo and I'm enjoying it for what it is. There's nothing quite this that I've tried thus far.
Somebody apparently had to make this Mezquila thing happen! So, why not Sammy Hagar and his new partner in bottled spirits Adam Levine? This is seriously a good blend for sipping at special events or just slamming one or two. Smooth and mellow like an old friend but fresh without the worm. It's a new vintage.
First off I'm not a fan of Mezcal it all but I thought this was a great combination of great agave tequila flavor paired with a hint of smokiness, plus a sweet finish. Will buy again.
