Looking for more tequila suggestions...
#1
Gah! Got a cold so no tasting for me. Bah! And my order is still not in at my local liquor store. 

Oh well... In the meantime I have been doing some research and I can order spirits from out of province. Apparently this changed in 2019.

So, there is a store in Calgary, Alberta that will ship to me and the shipping is not too bad. With the lower prices it may even be slightly less expensive than they would have cost here in Ontario. For me it is all about the access and trying new stuff and expanding my palate and collection.

This is the website:

Repos:

Anejos:

Extra Anejos:
https://zyn.ca/collections/extra-anejo

So, I have made a little list. I would love your thoughts Fordi and others. Smile

Blancos:
Tierra Noble
Centinella
Excellia
Roca Patron Silver
Dos Armadillos
Cabrito
Ollitas
Alma De Agave

Repos:
Tierra Noble
Arette
Casa Noble
Ocho Tequila
Gran Orendain
Alma De Agave
Cabrito

Anejos:
Casa Noble
Roca Patron
Tierra Noble
Centinella
Dos Armadillos
Arette
Alma De Agave

Extra Anejo:
Grand Mayan
Gran Patron

Right off the bat I would snag Grand Mayan. Is there a top 2 to 5 of each expression that you would recommend? I have heard good things about Tequila Ocho and they have that in the Repo at least.

Another vendor has these products although their shipping is more expensive.

If you do a search there they have a limited selection of tequila but there are some interesting options not readily available elsewhere.

They have Crotalo in Blanco, Repo, and Anejo. They also have T1 Tequila Uno Anejo.

I can also order from British Columbia but it would cost more and I may have more restrictions for shipping:

Thoughts? Where would you start?

I have been doing a little bit of research. Intrigued at this point by Centinela and Dos Armadillos. Have you had any experience with either of these brands?

Will have a look when I get back tonight. There a lot of tequilas you cannot get in the uk?

Might be. Certainly a lot that I cannot get here in Ontario, Canada.

For my first order I have Grand Mayan Extra Anejo or Tequila Ocho Repo lined up.

I can afford another 3 or 4 for this order.

Just get the Sparkle Donkey and diffuser juice! [emoji2957]


We have quite a few that are not sold in the U.S. because Canada does not require minimum 80 proof. Just the same I would take the availability of my friends to the south of my all day, every day. [emoji4]

In the good news file the Siempre Blanco and Tromba Repo came in. Will post pics and start a thread in the bar forum.

I love it when you buy new tequila online that you haven’t tasted before. There isn’t anything better than buying a new tequila, or in your case tequila’s lol and going through the process in trying them. It’s been a while for me, unfortunately!!!

I can't imagine not being able to utlize the web to research and order tequila. I found another out of province vendor I can utilize and they stock El Tequileno. Long Island Lou was kind enough to exchange several text messages with me to discuss this brand and some of the others I have access to.

Class act like yourself Fordi. [emoji106][emoji108]

Lou is the man bud. We only had four tequilas out of that long list.
