We have not had too much of an opportunity to review tequila for our alcohol reviews section, but lucky for us, Dos Lunas tequila sent on over a sample of their Anejo tequila. The bottle is the first thing that really shines about the tequila, which looks (in my opinion) like a lipstick tube. Pull off the burnished-metal top and one has a smooth, woodsy-smelling flavor immediately present. After a few seconds, a more creamy body comes forth.
The 100% Blue Agave used in the creation of this spirit makes for a tequila that is harsh enough to provide a rosy warmth for anyone that sips it straight, and is versatile enough to fit well with countless mixers and mixing spirits. A recent get-together we had at the office had the Dos Lunas rivaling a Don Julio or Patron in terms of popularity; where there were a number of individuals that were shooting the spirit straight, the margueritas made with Dos Lunas were the hit of the night. The price point of the spirit (around $40 for a 750 of the Anejo) is low enough that individuals that have been inculcated with a Jose Cuervo or Toro level of tequila can easily access a much higher (in terms of quality and versatility) spirit. Depending of what type of tequila one prefers, Dos Lunas provides an option â€“ there are Reposado, Silver, and Grande Reserve varietals beyond the Anejo.
While I am not the biggest fan of tequila, the Dos Lunas Anejo was something that I could easily imbibe. Where I have tried a number of different tequilas in the past, there is none of the chemical harshness or intense bite that has been such a commonplace occurrence in other Tequilas. If you are like me and have not had a tequila that you could properly appreciate, give the Dos Lunas a go. There is an everyman flavor present that will make staunch defenders of their own spirit â€“ be it rum, vodka, or the like â€“ into fans of Dos Lunas. In the next few months, we hope to have more coverage of what just may be the best tequila currently being produced.
